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.

I couldn’t agree with @scarrednotscared more! As someone who has only recently discovered the body positive community, I have never felt the way I feel about my body up until now. There is so much power in loving the body you’re in, no matter the size and finding others who see their bodies as nothing but beautiful. When @enamasiama asked me to get involved in this project, I was really nervous, and nearly declined. I am SO glad I did this, I am always so grateful when I meet unapologetic people, it’s such a freeing experience 💕 I had my few seconds of fame haha, you can watch the full video on @bbcthree YouTube 📸 Thank you again @enamasiama 😘
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?
