Self belief

Holy crap on a cracker, it's nearly a year since I wrote anything here? That's impressive, even by my standards.

2015 was an interesting year, and to be honest, not one I fancy rehashing. Things happened, life changed and I changed with it.

It's now 2016, I'm unemployed (for now), 30 years old and for the first time, I can genuinely say I have learnt to love myself, flaws and all. I spent so many years wishing I was like other women I knew, that I was prettier or smarter, more popular or healthier, until one day I woke up and realised, others probably have the same feelings and inspire to be me. This changed a lot when it came to my way of seeing myself and thinking of who I am as a person, and it has let me become a more confident individual, who accepts her flaws and such and just continues. Of course, there are so many things I would change on one day or another, and days when I despise so much of myself, but that is human nature, and to recognise that allowed me to be free.

So, my name is Sam, and I am a pretty epic human being!
