Life Is About Making An Impact

Life is about making an impact. Yesterday (29th June 2016) marked the culmination of years of hard work. I found out that I am graduating from The University of Manchester with a First Class degree in English Language. Sleepless nights and hours of hard work have finally paid off.


During my time at University I was feeling quite down. Despite being surrounded by loads of friends and knowing that my family were only a phone call away, I felt incredibly lonely. As much as I tried to push these feelings away, they just wouldn’t go. I wasn’t feeling myself at all. I found myself in some extremely challenging situations that tested my strength of character. I knew that better days were coming. I needed to find my inner strength – a strength that would help me to focus all my attention on work and to build myself into the strong- minded woman that I am today. My three years at University required patience and lots of it. I kept reminding myself that things would get better with time. You have to fight through some bad days to earn the best days of your life.

My experience at University inspired me to start my blog. I wanted to create a space where I could share my journey with others. The purpose of my blog is to be motivational and to encourage others to always maintain a positive attitude. My positive outlook on life means that I approach everything in a productive manner. I wanted to turn something that I considered quite negative in my life into something positive and so I created Lucy Lifestyle.

Today I feel amazing. I feel mentally strong. Receiving the results for my degree yesterday made me feel empowered. It was a clear example, where I saw that if you put the hard work into something that you really want, there is no doubt that you will achieve it. When things are done with passion, success will always follow.
