I last wrote about confidence, or lack of, back in 2015. International Women’s Day seems like a good time to look back on that post and reflect on how, or if, things have changed for me since then.
Certainly, my life is rather different. I’ve lost my constant companion but gained a romantic partner. I won’t bore you with the fate bit but the gaining of one did help me cope with the loss of the other.
Another loss since then is a few dress sizes and those chronic dizzy migraines. So, yes I’ve gained a little more body confidence and I now have the energy and ability to go out without falling over (there’s been a couple of short relapses over the last 12 months but I’ll take those in comparison thank you very much!) which means a little more social confidence too.
But, I still very much lack confidence in this blogging lark! I still love to write. I still love to share my pictures. But, I still don’t feel that either is good enough.
I’ll keep pinning inspiring quotes and reading the confidence boosting articles and who knows what the next update will bring?
The International Women’s Day theme this year is #beboldforchange aimed at gender equality, but, I’m going to try and use it to help myself be a little bolder and hopefully grow my confidence too.
So, more work to be done but progress has been made and isn’t that all anyone can ask of themselves or anyone?
