It’s kind of hard to believe a whole year has passed since I started this blog. So much has changed since then, most noticeably my self-confidence:
I’ve gone from being afraid of crop tops, to wearing them as just another part of my wardrobe.
I’m on the list of life models for a regular life drawing event.
I have far more good body days than bad, and have developed tactics to deal with the bad ones.
I’ve cut from my life any people who (deliberately or not) push the wrong buttons, and I’ve made my introvert time non-negotiable.
I’ve learned to answer back and argue my point instead of being a good, quiet little lady and letting people walk all over me.
And so much more.
Honestly, I kind of expected all that to happen. Maybe not quite so well or so quickly, but I was ready for ‘fake it til you make it’ to work out as it has in the past.
I was not expecting my eyes and ideology to be thrown wide open.
This blog started off for me. I was going to do things I was afraid of so I could change. But over the last year I’ve realised that there’s a good deal more in the world needs changing, and if I can help, in even the tiniest way, I just have to.
My first year has been a learning year. My next year will be one of action. Watch this space.
