A Very Real Introduction

Hi all! I feel as if I haven't fully explained what The Resplendent Lioness is for me and what I want it to be so I just wanted to take this time to do so!

So if you don't know me, my name is Delilah Hannahford. I'm 18, born and raised in Australia and I want to create an online community where anyone and everyone feels safe to express authenticity, find connection and feel loved.

I live currently in a small town and have found it extremely difficult to meet like minded individuals who believe that finding your joy and making that your best life is the key to personal success. So I've redirected my focus and am now making a platform online because I am far from the lone ranger when it comes to feeling isolated.

I think somewhere along the lines social influencers sought to over compensate the darkness and heaviness of this world by vomiting positivity everywhere. And while I truly believe positivity is important and a mindset to be valued and maintained, for fucks sake everyone feels like shit sometimes and I'm willing to be someone who's going to share it all. I want to show the aspects of life everyone goes through but tries to hide. What's life worth living for if it's not authentic huh?

I don't want to be a life coach or someone who's going to tell you even how to live your life I just want to remind you that you are enough and feeling fucking fabulous is your birth right.

So welcome to The Resplendent Lioness, where you are valued for who you are and that will forever be enough.

Send me an email or let's connect on Instagram, wherever you feel comfortable because like Troy, Gabriella and the whole cast of High School Musical said, we're all in this together.

The Start Of The Rest Of My Life

Welcome to my first ever post on my new blog The Resplendent Lioness!I have been working on many aspects of this blog for over the past week but to finally sit down and write my first is a very lovely feeling.
Only just recently have I recognised that as long as I can write I am deeply satisfied. I still crave intensely many MANY wonders, writing just gives my experience a sense of purpose that other loves just don't. The best way I can describe it is as if  I am the whole universe, writing is the sun, and my many other joys are planets and stars. All are important and make up the whole universe, this is key. Stars and new planets can be discovered but there is only one sun.  The complete source of warmth, bringing light to every part of me.
My desires to venture into the blogging world have only come about recently and suddenly but I believe in divine timing and this could not have entered my life at a more excellent time. I asked for a summer romance and I got handed a blog. My oh…

18 Life Changing Lessons I Learnt In 2018

Here we are again, the end of a book and this time it so happens to be the novel that was 2018. A lot occurred in the past 12 chapters and 365 pages and for all I find peace with and am grateful.
Moments have been filled with pleasure, some with agony, some with sadness, elation, shock, glee, gloom, mild insanity, only to name a few otherwise we'll be here for the whole of 2019 if I try to list all the adjectives I've felt recently. I actually really enjoy watching the pendulum swing every which way asking you ever so politely with a kick up the butt to keep and never stop progressing. So to sum it up my year was filled with a lot of butt kicking.
I used to HATE the thought of new years eve and even birthdays so much that I'd get emotionally and physically distressed about them. It meant that the clock kept ticking and chapters kept ending, a concept my little eleven year old self didn't want to have to accept. Ever. It's only been this year that I've embraced th…

The 10 Albums That Transcended In 2018

Albums and EPs that I listened to non-stop in 2018 and you should listen to too!My favourite 10 releases in 2018 that features artists you will immediately fall in love with.

I spend a decent amount of my time admiring the artistic expression of music. It is something that I hold very close and very, very dear to my heart. Along with writing, music brings the most indescribable and monumental feelings of pure elation and raw electricity.
My favourite genre of music is the kind that leaves me feeling like I just saw through space and time in the matter of minutes and now I know every secret to the universe... so basically I'll go for anything that makes me feel like I'm high.

2018 was a year of some spectacular breakthroughs in music from new artists entering the scene or familiar faces re-inventing what they have to offer. Now, more then ever you're bound to find someone somewhere on the globe making something to cater to your very specific likes. I can't guarantee you…
