Things That Make Me Me

I started to think about this after watching a video over on the fabulous WonderfulYou YouTube channel entitled #MyBestMe and it got me thinking all about what makes me, well me I guess…

There are many things that make me who I am, who I aspire to be in the future and who I have been in the past. There are many people I have met, befriended and come to love along the way that have changed my perspective, built my confidence and helped me grow as a person and there have been many that have knocked me down, belittled me and held me back.

These days I am more confident than I ever have been before and I don’t just mean in my appearance, I mean in my abilities and self worth too. I now believe more than ever before that I can acheive anything that I want to go do and if I want it, I should go and get it. I am happy to wear what I want, when I want and not care about what others may think. Plus I am comfortable enough to put myself out there, to go and meet new people, in situations that I am unused to.

I know who I want to be and what I want to do. Yes what I want to do may be a pipe dream and it may be within a heavily saturated market of writers, bloggers and vloggers but it is something that I am passionate about and would be proud to call my career. A career that I could say I have forged and moulded into what I want it to be.

I am more self aware and not in a bad or negative way either. Yes I have days where all I can see is the fuzzy remnants of definition from years gone by, my oh so wobbly bits (believe me I have them) and feel like a whale but I no longer feel defeated by these, instead I feel motivated to improve, work harder and impress myself when I look in the mirror. 

In the past I was prone to bouts of negativity, I would concentrate on the worst potential outcome of a situation as opposed to the best. I am now thankful everyday for everything I have now and everything I will have in the future and more positive about what the future holds for me.

I am 32 years old and it has taken all of those years on this little planet of ours for me to come to the realisation that it doesn’t matter in the slightest what other people think of you as long as you love yourself.

What makes you you? Let me know below and I’ll catch up with you again soon, until then though x
