“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.” ~ Aristotle





Welcome to Lyd on Life, a personal blog written by Lydia, created for those on a journey to self-discovery, self-improvement and unconditional self-love. I’m glad to have the opportunity to share with you my experiences and the many things that I’m learning daily.


I’m a twenty something year old software engineering graduate living in London. I work as a project manager for a start-up (mid-size) software company; my first post grad job since leaving university in 2015.

I love writing, debating and gaining knowledge and I wanted to explore all the swirling thoughts in my head somewhere. So I chose to blog!

I created this blog as a place to share my journey through young adulthood with an online community. From navigating life after university, to discovering love, maintaining meaningful  friendships and being happy with the woman I’m becoming.  I welcome you to my little world of love, laughter, pain and growth.

As I share my life, thoughts and lessons I hope this blog can be a place where you come for inspiration, motivation and comfort. I come to you not as an expert (Lord knows we have enough of those!) but as one 20 something year old trying to make it in this world to another. Why? To simply remind ourselves that we are not alone. We are all going through it and it helps to know how we’re dealing with it together in one way or another. Real life, real stories and real experiences.

I feel there is going to be a lot in store so enjoy the ride with me.
