To any of my friends, it is no secret that I change a lot. And I don’t just mean my clothes.
Recently, I downloaded the app TimeHop for a laugh. But upon downloading and receiving my Facebook statuses and photos over the past five years, I realized just how much I have changed.
But, today I saw an image of myself from five years ago, which led me to have a scroll through some old photos on Facebook. I’ll be kind and only show you a few:

Five years later, I’m not the same girl wearing baseball caps and shades indoors. I know I’m not cool, or beautiful, but I am proud. I’m proud of how I turned my life around from a girl who was on the wrong path, to a woman with books to her name and words in her heart.
I’ll keep changing, and growing but now – it’s for the better.
Sorry, this is a bit of a self-reflective piece, but I hope it helps you realize that change can be for the better.
