A Note on Perspective

Immy May lifestyle bloggers


I am off to V Festival tomozza and I am pretty dayum excited. I have a fancy new frock to wear, the weather ain’t looking horrendous AND Craig David is playing. It is going to be a corker, even though I’m only there for the afternoon! What are your weekend plans gal?

Before the gin commences,  I wanted to have a quick chinwag about summin’ that has been on mi mind over the past few weeks.

I guess it’s a given in life that sh*t happens. We all have bad days, rubbish situations and doughnut moments.

It is far too easy to let these nuances of life get on top of you. To let the stress and worry consume you until you are a tearful, anxious lass. It’s pretty ‘orrible.

This kinda situ happened to me a few weeks back. It was a silly mistake, but something that I couldn’t totally control straight away. After feeling completely overwhelmed by the whole thing, I took a deep breath, and took a step back.

I realised that actually, everything really is temporary. There is no point sweating the small stuff, or letting a particular difficult situation cloud your day.

You have to keep perspective. To protect yourself, and remember aaaall the amazing things you have in your life. All the wonderful people who love and support you through everything, your health, your opportunities, the fact that actually, life is pretty sweet.

After days of feeling SO bloomin’ stressed and anxious, I just thought f*ck it. Life is far too short. I forgot about the negativity and got on with things that made me happy. It isn’t ignorance, just a way of looking after yourself, as that is the most important thing.

    • Thank you so much Frances! Doing another early one tomorrow, eep! Getting all the snaps in before it’s dark in the mornings nooo! Immy x

  • Amy Eade

    You look so gorgeous in these pictures, those trousers are amazing! And I couldn’t agree more, I feel like we spend so much time focusing on how upset/annoyed we are and not enough time appreciating what we already have and what makes us happy!
    Amy xx

    • Thank you Amy :) I LOVE the trousers lol, so breezy and comfy! I know, I really need to get out of the habit of dwelling too much on situations, as there is so much to be happy about :) Immy x

  • Beautiful snaps of you beaut and I fricking LOVE those trousers! Everything you have said is so true and really important to remember (I certainly struggle with perspective at times) – its so easy to spend time worrying about things which ultimately don’t matter and focusing on negative emotions. Glad you were able to take a step back and think about all the wonderful stuff instead xxx

    • Ah thank yooou lovely Sophie! I do bloody love the trousers, just so dreamy and comfy! I really do, I could waste so much time just worrying about things that may or may not happen! Immy x

  • Lovely reminder and wow this outfit is fab on you!!! I do love a good plain V neck in summer :)

    • Ah thank you Caterina :) Me too, I need to maybe start thinking about my autumn wardrobe soon..?! It feels too early, but I am looking forward to all the cosy jumpers etc >:) Immy x

    Your weekend sounds really fun. This was a good little reminder that you gave us. And oh my gosh those trousers are so adorable!!!

    • I think we all need a little reminder to take a step back and appreciate the positives sometimes, I certainly do! Ah thank you chick, so happy with them! Was umming and aahing so much in the shop, really glad I decided to buy them! Immy x

  • Have a wonderful time at V Festival my love. Everything rings so true in this post, nothing is forever. Whenever I have bad joint pain, I always think to myself “It’s okay, this will pass.” and it does, eventually! Peta x

    • Ah thank you Peta, it was so much fun! Yes, all things really are temporary – I need to always remember that! If I ever feel like I’m having an anxious day, I know that it won’t last forever – makes it much easier to accept and slow down. Immy x

  • Diana Maria

    Those pants are so gorgeous, I love this look! This was such an uplifting post, I agree that everything is temporary. That’s what I try to think when I feel myself getting down- it’s important to hold onto this perspective! I hope you have a wonderful weekend xx

    Sending light & love your way,
    My Lovelier Days

    • Thank you lovely Diana! Yes I am doing my best to try and do that, it can be hard to battle with your mind on these things – but eventually I hope to always find perspective and see the positives, even if I feel awful! I hope you had a lovely weekend chick :) Immy x

  • Seeing the bigger picture is always so important – I tend to stress out a lot over the little things but doing this always helps me come back down to earth.

    Love this look – especially loving these trousers!


    • It really is, I need to always remind myself of that. It is crazy how much time I waste by worrying constantly about the little things! Thank you Kemiii :) The comfiest trousers I have ever owned! Immy x

  • Couldn’t agree more, this is something I try and live by on a daily basis because putting things into perspective is so bloody important!

    Lucy | Forever September

    • Yesss, it is so important! Live is far too short for worry. Immy x

  • Hell yasssss to everything written here! I’ve lately found an old diary when I was oh-so damn depressed because of Mike who didn’t fancy me. The only thought haunting me ever since is ‘oh my goodness, who the hell was Mike?!’… so yeah, things depend on perspective indeed! ;) Of course, when we grow up the issues and challenges we face tend to be more serious than a silly teenage crush but the rule is pretty much the same :) And after meeting you in person I can definitely say your positive energy is contagious! Mal x

    • Yes Mal this is such a perfect example! I would LOVE to look through my old diaries haha, I bet there are some right corkers in there!! It is true, even looking back a few years ago, there are things I used to get so worked up about, but actually it really didn’t matter / have an impact on my life! Ah thank you lovely lady. Shame we didn’t hang out more, I wissssh I could have stayed for longer – I bet Sean Paul was amazing!? Immy x

  • your photos carry such a happy positive vibe! I couldnt agree with you more. sometimes in difficult situations stepping back and gaining a different perspective can change things so much! great post
