October Life Update

I’m packing a lot of info into this week, so fasten your seatbelts…

Hi guys. I had a thought the other day that it would be nice to give you guys a monthly life update, just so I can tell you about anything that might be interesting that’s happening in my life. Of course if I’ve had an uneventful month (which is more than likely) I will just be writing about something else. I just thought this would be a nice way of you guys getting to know me more.

I’d quite like to get to know you guys too, so why don’t you leave a comment and tell me what you like about this blog?

Once again I know this blog goes through a lot of changes, but it’s not been up-and-running that long. It can take a while for a blogger to find what really works and at the moment Shannonatron.com is still a work in progress.

Already this month has been quite busy, I’ve moved department AGAIN for the 3rd time in my current job in less than a year. At first I was apprehensive about it (and to be honest, quite upset as I’d worked hard to get into my previous department) but now I’m enjoying it more than my previous department, which is what I needed really as the routine was starting to wear thin if I’m brutally honest. I didn’t have anything concrete in terms of a schedule for the entire time I was in my previous department and that was disappointing.

For those who don’t know, I’m not a fan of your everyday 9 – 5. I live for the weekend but not for the reason of going clubbing and things like that. In fact, as I write this, it’s a Saturday night and I’m indoors with a cup of tea watching Lord of the Rings. I love nothing more the knowing my free time is my own, and I crave the little adventures on the weekend with my love.

This Monday marks one year until mine and Sean’s wedding. I feel so much more excited now since we have finally decided on a venue and started making invitations. I decided I would make our invitations rather than having them made elsewhere, as having something homemade is cute and it works with the shabby-chic style we are aiming for. They make nie keepsakes. I’ve also decided that I’m starting a healthier diet from Monday. This means I will have exactly one year to get into shape.

I’m only going to have one special day like this in my life, so I want to look and feel great. It’s also something I’ve been putting off some time. Even if I didn’t want to look better, I want to have a healthy life that I can prolong through a positive mindset and diet.

So it’s Sunday morning and I have to get ready for my photoshoot. Today is going to be completely different as I’ve NEVER done anything like this before. Yes, I did a commercial shoot earlier this year but this is definitely me stepping out of my comfort zone, which you’ll definitely see as soon as I have the end result to show you guys.

Doing photoshoots is still work so I technically work 6 days a week when I’m modelling but it just doesn’t feel like work. I feel completely confident and natural, but more on this next week if I have my prints come through!

The last thing I want to talk about is a bit of an odd one; in fact it’s nothing I’ve really discussed with you guys before but I would like some advice or an opinion…

Since moving into our apartment, the idea of having children has been a bit off-putting to me. I used to really like the idea of being a mother, but lately I’d rather have a cat or a dog, if truth be told! I’m also quite young, and I want to be more financially stable before I get to that chapter of my life.

I found out today that mutual friends of me and Sean are expecting a baby. It made me feel odd. I felt upset and I’m not too proud to say that I felt jealous, which I really hate. It is an ugly emotion that we all feel from time to time. The thing is, I don’t know what that means… Has anyone else experienced this, and if you have can you tell me what you think it means?

I don’t want to have to make a decision between my career and my personal life. I don’t want to have a rich and successful career if it means my home-life has to suffer, but I also don’t want to lose out on any opportunities.

I didn’t want to finish this week’s post on a slightly sad note, but I am only human and I want you all to know that. I also value advice from a third party, so please drop a comment down below!

See you next week! Xoxo

  1. Hello, I came across your blog post from another blog post and I could somewhat relate to your last paragraph. Hahaha! While I’m not in a relationship or even close to it, but I have had couple of friends who are already mothers at this age, at the prime of our life where I think we should be fighting for a career or making a mark for ourselves. I don’t really have an advice tbh, but I guess my opinion on this would be motherhood isn’t for everyone. And to have a child is a heavy commitment so unless you’re ready for the sort of permanent commitment in taking care and nurturing your children, then it’s better to leave that for a later time. While some people can still be successful and have a family life, because it’s all about balance. But I do think, it’s really about what your current priorities are at this point. Some of my friends are happy with being mothers and I’ve also seen some who sometimes resent having kids because they feel like its not giving them the freedom to soar higher than they should. After all, bringing up a child is no easy task. So yeah, definitely think about your current priorities and how you see yourself growing a few years from now. ❤
