Introducing Me

Welcome to my first blog for my new website! Introducing who I am, why I'm here and what's in store for the future. Here is me, finally putting a pen to paper and creating a space to help people, entertain people and share my creativity. Enjoy! Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Such a simple question attached to so many connotations because it’s the question of oblivion really. Time after time we disappear into the connotations of this question. We disappear into the when, why and where of it all.

I know where I want to be in 5 years, I think I know how I’m going to get there but there is always going to be little things that change the course of the journey. So let's talk about the journey, how am I going to try live my next 5 years? To keep it simple, I know I want to use my creativity more and overall I just want to start listening to what my heart wants. Staying true to myself and my 5 year plan, I have decided to start doing just that, which is the bread and butter to how this website/blog came about.

So, this is me, putting a pen to paper.
Who is ‘me’?
I’m Ashlyn Ann Coulter. Australian born & raised. In love with animals (specifically sloths), friends & family, reading, essential oils, creating, sewing, and the beach (just to name a few). In a family of five (middle child here) + our beautiful doggo, Zoe. I am obsessed with the TV show How I Met Your Mother and any food that is Italian. I work part-time at an office job while studying my biggest passion: Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy).
But I’m STUCK.
Stuck figuring out how to put my creative mind into real life while aligning my passions and goals.

It’s funny, we think we know ourselves…. From that freckle on your right knee to that secret (or not so secret) obsession with sloths. However, when it comes to our aspirations, our happiness, our mental well-being, sometimes we couldn’t feel more disconnected and confused. Despite this feeling, we do know ourselves better than anyone knows us because we are the only ones who live inside our own minds. We put out what we want to say and do despite how we actually might feel/think. Therefore, it is only up to our individual selves to stop, be real and start making our aspirations happen and our creativity flow. Only we can put out what we really want into the world.

So, I decided this disconnection between me and myself had to stop.

 

When it came to making decisions, I got into the habit of asking myself, “Does this support the life I am trying to create?”. I got tired of always answering, “Not really”, and I wanted to do something about it.

In such a busy and computer driven world we have no time to wind down and manifest what we really want for our lives, without the influence of other people. But I don’t want to feel disconnected from myself just because I’m connected online, instead I will realign myself to my goals and aspirations, while helping you.

 

Maybe you are reading this and don’t know this feeling at all

Maybe you are reading this and thinking, “Amen sister!”

Or maybe you just don’t even know what I’m on about.

That is all okay, because this first blog is simply here to introduce myself and tell you why I’m even here.

To summarise it all, I love to help people, I love to create, I love photography and I love learning new natural lifestyle tips. So why not create a space to do all that in one?

Hence, I’ve put a pen to the paper, (or should I say my fingers to the keyboard?) and I’m sharing this website with you.

I want to listen to myself more and what I want. If that means writing another blog that could go nowhere or creating another YouTube video after 6 months that also goes nowhere then so be it. But here is my start, my words on paper promising you I will create a space that shares my life, my struggles, my creativeness and my happiness.

 

Love always,

Ashlyn Ann
