5 Things To Know About Me

Having gotten my undying love for writing and music off of my chest, I feel further at ease sharing some other joys of my life. So here are 5 to get to know me a little more!

Seeing as the blog post on Monday was a major event in history I thought I'd keep this one brief (...hopefully, only God knows how long I'll actually be sitting here typing away). 

Question one: who am I?
Well howdy there, I'm Delilah Hannahford and I dream of the breakfast I'm going to have the next morning while getting into bed the night before. I'm 18 years young and a Leo, hence the blog title The Resplendent Lioness. I also like to watch movies not necessarily for the story but for the location and the soundtrack. Born and raised in Tasmania, Australia and my dream travel destination right now is Ireland... 'P.S I Love You' quenches that thirst real good... but more on that later.

Question two: why did I make a blog in the first place?
I chose to make a blog so I could express myself on a higher platform and hopefully reach like minded individuals. To remind others about the daily wonders in this world and to showcase that feeling good is a birth right. While I gush over my loves maybe it'll ignite your spark in what you love, long lost or new flames.

Question three: what do I get up to when I'm not writing?
Thanks to Adriene from Yoga With Adriene, I have learnt the most valuable catchphrase ever and that is to 'find what feels good'. This I choose to actively live by with my actions and thoughts. I do tend to swing between hobbies as I'm a jump in the deep end or not at all girl, but some things never change. These includes: pumping iron like Arnold 'you have to shock tha muscle', taking pictures of sights that catch my eye, having deep and meaningfuls with my Mumma, pinning pictures of exotic places on my Pinterest boards, cooking then to only devour seconds later, impromptu living room dance parties, discovering new music and anything to do with the sky has me deeply fascinated.

Question four: how did writing find me?
At 12 I had an epiphany sitting window seat on a plane, I discovered the magic that is songwriting. Instantly I found myself gobbled up by this form of witchcraft wondering how does one write a decent song? On that very plane I started to write lyrics (which I still have but never look at because CRINGE!!! What 12 year old knows about love??) and the rest is history. Now songwriting is as big a part of my life as breathing. Only just recently have I decided to stretch my wings and see what else I can do with words and well, here we are.

Question five: where can I find you on social media?
Well well well, what a splendid question to have asked... I have left links for your hearts desires below.

Ahhh and I still sat here for hours... I can't help myself okay!

Love, Delilah

Dealing With Online Criticism: Brushing It Off & Moving Forwards

My first personal run-in with online criticism occurred this week in a somewhat odd and unexpected fashion but unexpected is to be expected when it comes to me as I'm just a wild child and would rather not walk in a straight line. I've never been one to dish out hate online as (and correct me if I'm wrong) I feel it just clashes with The Resplendent Lioness brand I'm trying to build but at the same time I've never really received it either. Actually I take that back, I did feel personally attacked a handful of times when I had my Taylor Swift fan account back in 2014 whenever someone openly claimed that they didn't like her. 14 year old me was scared but down to fight when it came to being a Swiftie.
It was a roller-coaster of emotions the first 10 minutes after reading someones unnecessary and uneducated opinion on my blog in an online community help page but once I stepped off the ride and allowed my feet to hit solid ground again the hills didn't seem a…

Creating Content: The Other Side Of Productivity & Inspiration

I haven't felt uber inspired to produce this weeks blog to be completely honest as I haven't been in a super great frame of mind. My thoughts have been scatty and my emotions have been strewn across my bedroom floor like dirty clothes I need to put in the wash but simply can't be bothered to. These feelings are partially to do with me wanting my content to be perfect and placing immense amounts of pressure on myself that would result in pooping rainbows or growing a second head. But just like every other week, Thursday rolls around and I have nothing, no inspiration or motivation to sit down and pour the next 12 hours into writing which is a draining standard I've gotten a little too used to.
Even when I don't have a hard hitting subject to cover or questions to raise I still wish to keep my steady rhythm of posting every Thursday because even though creating new content can drive me up the wall it still very much keeps me sane and it would feel like a part of me …

Living In Fear: Goodbye To Old Trauma & Hello To Your Genuine Truth

We are blessed to be alive in a day and age where technology is at an all-time high, international solo travel is more than possible and safer than ever, information is abundant and overflowing from every open stream of consciousness but we still live so much of our lives in fear. There is nothing wrong with fear like there is nothing wrong with anything that ever was, but living in survival mode for your whole life is not thriving like you and me were born to. Fear is something all humans feel, you can't not as it's kind of ingrained into our make-up after long lines of ancestral trauma and because we're animals with survival instincts. But times have changed and you don't need to shelter yourself in a blanket of fear anymore because we are at a point in evolution where staying 'safe' is far more dangerous than putting yourself out on the line.
A little over a month ago I fell apart and in that process I dropped and shattered the hard protective coating I enc…

Nothing Turns Me On Like Good Aesthetics Do: My Favourites

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
So often the little things go unseen and overlooked but without these forgotten tiny miracles the world would be pretty damn lackluster. I personally seek the little precious moments that you could melt into and hold onto forever, they keep me optimistic and make me feel infinite in a dimension that feels a little too physically restrictive for my liking. How someone notices, views, feels these moments speaks volumes when it comes to knowing how in tune or out of touch they are with source energy. Right now I want to bring your attention back to the little things so you can stay more aware and open to them throughout your day. It is a constant reminder to look up and watch the clouds when you've kept your eyes on the ground for so long but it is worth it because missing out on such magic would be the deepest of tragedies.

Here is a list of some of my favourite little things using your very basic but priceless five senses smell, sound, sight, touch an…
