Key Insight: You’re not the same person you were in the past. And your future self will not be the same person you are today. You get to choose how you see your past and you get to choose who you’ll be in the future.

Asia linked me to a project that she thought will help me. I agreed to give it a go. My writing has been in a book these days but to be accountable, I will put some of it here.

Challenge:

Pull out your journal and reflect on how you’ve changed in the past 3 years.

Well, I can walk into a room with a mirror and not shut the lights off immediately. I can even put make-up in that mirror and sing and dance in front of it. No, you do not want to hear that 😂
I understand that my self-concept is not as high as it should be. I have allowed a lot of rubbish that maybe you would not have (or you) but girl, it is loads better than it was. And I am getting there.

-In what ways are you different from your former self?

I think I am pretty fantastic. That version of Melinda I do not know very well. I look at pictures and I wonder why she was so mean to herself. I wish I could give her a hug and let her know that shit will get better. And maybe to avoid okcupid? Ah well. 😂

-How have you grown and evolved?

My evolution has been with kindness and lots of eyeliner and bath bombs from Lush. I would have never made it through the dumpster fire I MOSTLY STARTED without my girls and sparklie bubble baths. And hey, maybe I am only 3/4 of the way through. Maybe there is still another inferno for me to disco dance my way out of. How the heck and I supposed to know? I will survive until I do not. And then I can finally rest, fam.
