I started this blog in February 2016. I was going through big life changes and a ‘turning 30’ life crisis a couple of months before the big day and I wanted to start a blog years ago but never had the confidence. ‘What will you even write about’ my ex would often say.
But I was single, almost thirty, hurt and going through grief and I decided to give it a go. I wanted to share with everyone all the lessons I learnt and still learning from my experience on this planet so far and as it turned out writing is one of the few things that help me get by, one of my remedies, my self-therapy techniques. That’s how it started originally, with ‘Lessons I learned before I turn 30’ although it ended up much broader and bigger and I recently decided to re-name it Eleni’s world although I’m not sure I want to keep this name.
I still post on what I learn through life but also about anything that inspires me.
I’m a foodie (inevitable since my dad and my sister are chefs and us Cypriots love our food) so food features a lot in my blogs.
I love meeting new people and learning about their stories, and they make it to the blog most of the time.
I recently discovered and fell in love with yoga and I often post about that.
I’m very passionate about mental health, a subject close to my heart and I regularly blog on that.
Southampton is my current home so I post about local life, especially local, independent shops and restaurants, and events I get involved with.
Music is my medicine and songs regularly make it into my blogs, whatever the theme.
I love travelling although I can’t afford to do it often, but whenever I do, a special travel blog is always up (featured image is from my recent trip to Florence).
And finally I love my home, Cyprus and it always finds its way into my posts.
It’s been a hell of a journey but sharing my thoughts, lessons and experiences has been deeply therapeutic for me. I enjoy writing and hopefully I’ll keep blogging for years and years.
I make no money out of it as I only do it as a hobby and I have no free time or extra money to spend on becoming a professional blogger. But I love it nonetheless. It’s part of its charm.
I hope you enjoy my life journey.
