Hi, thanks for showing up.
Twenty Five by D is a little online visual diary that I’ve created to keep track of my spontaneous arts and crafts things that I like to do. And maybe the occasional selfies here and there…. Growing up I have always loved anything arts and crafts. My dad’s a pretty creative and very resourceful person and I think that’s where I got it from because my mum can’t draw for sh*t and she is terribly un-coordinated (this I got from her). A month ago, I turned 25 and it really hit me hard. I mean REALLY hard. I looked back on all my accomplishments and for some reason I did not feel fulfilled or satisfied. I felt that the last 25 years was a mix of really bad emotions, fear of judgements and self-doubt. Not gonna lie, I still feel this from time to time but is trying really hard to work on it.
I actually thought about creating an Instagram account, countless times, to document all the random stuff that I do but then I thought ‘who the hell would want to follow me?’ For the longest time, I was always afraid of judgements from others. I am my worse critic and I always felt that what I did was never good enough. But after turning 25, it made me realise how grateful I should be and that everything I do should only be for myself. PERIOD.
So here it is. Welcome to a snippet of my life in squares. A collection of random spontaneous shit I get up to. Follow me on this journey and watch me improve and be better than I was yesterday.
With zeal, D. xoxo
