I am purposely doing the things that scare me, within reason that is. I want to explore the options I have, discover what works for me and what doesn’t. The only way I am going to do that successfully is if I try new things.
So what are the things I want to explore and do more of?
publically speaking about my mental health was such a big deal for me. For so long I felt like anything I had to say had no value. It’s good to get it out, it is even better when people listen and engage with what you’re saying.
I want to do some more public speaking, even though it does scared me, I feel amazing afterwards. It’s the initial getting up on stage and silencing my thoughts that is the hard part.
Exploring My Femininity
Exploring my femininity is something I am more open to now more than before. I want to have a better understand of who I am and redefine what it means to be a woman.
This ties into fashion, I definitely want to play around with clothing more. I am still big on comfort but I also want start looking and feeling good in my presentation. I am hugely inspired by women like; Tri From Curlture. I see women who freely and confidently express themselves through their clothes and I love it.
Lights, Camera, Action
Saying yes to being in front of a camera dancing with some of the women I admire was necessary. I knew I would gain a whole new level of respect for myself and it would boost my confidence.
Being around confident and successful plus sized women made me want to embrace my size even more. I see these women on social platforms, but to actually be in their presence and to laugh with them? What a great feeling. Definitely going to be exploring fashion this year.
Shooting My Shot
Utilising the relationships I have built during my blogging journey. Understanding the importance of working with people and businesses I respect, also again this will help to discovery what it is I want to do with my life.
I have some cool collaborations coming up and I am excited to do more, to work with brands and content creators that have inspired me. I am sending emails to brands I wouldn’t have dreamed of emailing, but I know the worst response I could get is a no.
What are some of the things you’ll be doing that are out of your comfort zone?
