As soon as the email for this months prompt dropped into my inbox I knew exactly what picture I wanted to reshoot, This Is Me!
That picture and sharing it means so much to me, I would not change anything about why I posted it or any of the positive (and negative) comments I received about it.
The reason behind me wanting to reshoot this image is simple, progress!
It has been 19 months since that original picture was taken and so much has changed with me, geographically, physically, mentally.
The majority of this change has happened to me with the past 4 months. I moved to Australia, I started working out. (I have lost 8.1kg /17lbs in 8 weeks) I have removed people from my life that were very damaging to my mental health and self esteem and have embraced people who know the true meaning of kindness and friendship. I now know that I can really achieve anything when I set my mind to it.
When I leave this town in the middle of nowhere in a weeks time a completely different person to the lost broken girl who arrived here three months ago will be getting on that bus. I couldn’t be more proud of myself.
Who would of thought living in the Australian outback would turn me into a whole new person, a better person, a happy confident person.
This is me…now!
