Change is a Good Thing.

This past week I have challenged myself to do things that are the furthest out of my comfort zone. It felt incredibly strange, and in the back of my mind I wanted to doubt myself, but I got on with it and for the first time in years I felt like I had achieved something.



When I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror, I almost didn’t recognize myself. It felt like I was a different person, no longer was I the shy girl who could barely speak a single word, or so caught up in my own troubles that I couldn't smile or dare to enjoy myself. I felt different, the worries and stresses were all now broken down into manageable portions, instead of stacked up against me.

Change doesn’t happen overnight, I can fully appreciate that now, but slowly things do change and what I have to do now is welcome that change into my life.

  10. How wonderful to hear you doing so well and having faith in yourself - we can all be guilty of holding ourselves back sometimes, but you seem to have really turned a corner. So glad things are going well.

  11. This is exactly what life is about <3 I try to escape from my comfort zone every now and again. It reminds me that I can do things that would otherwise seem strange.

    Can I just say a massive thank you for the amazing comment you left me. It really really made my day and reminded me that I am probably a bit too hard on myself sometimes <3

  15. Good for you! It is so true that if we never change anything, nothing will change - and a little challenge is a good thing! (something I often need reminding of!)
