Leap of Faith

I don't have much confidence. In fact, occasionally it slowly whittles its way to the grand total of zero. Which is why it's great I can hide behind the blue rays of my laptop screen in my darkened bedroom and hiss when the light shines in.

However, the older I get, the more confident I'm becoming and after recently turning twenty-one I genuinely feel a lot more confident in the things I do and wear. Being small with a young face, people often treat me years younger than I am and I’ve come to realise that subconsciously I’ve treated myself in the same way.

But I feel a lot more ready now. Seeing my friends grow up has taught me a lot, especially not to worry about what other people think. At the end of the day, they’re doing their thing and if I don’t do my thing I’m never going to to reach my maximum potential.

These days we’ve all got to be a little bit more thick skinned and sometimes you’ve got to take that risk and leap of faith. And that’s what my blog is to me. I am terrified to be putting myself out there, to let people know that I’ve created this space, but ultimately I’m at an age where no one can make decisions for me anymore. It’s time to stand up for myself.
