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.

Delilah x

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…
