I thought for today post let's not change into nicer clothes, or do my hair up for the camera. Let's just be the first thing in the morning Leah in an old T-Shirt and a hoodie. That's not always the easiest thing to do for a lot of girls, but it was refreshing for me.
People like to give others a hard time for "changing". Why is that? Changing personalities or routines are always seemingly a bad thing...? Who would want to still be the person they were in 8th grade when they're 17? That seems ridiculous, doesn't it?
I wouldn't say I've changed a whole lot, and I'm still the same girl who'd much rather spend my day in old T-shirts & hoodies than nice dresses. I'm still the same girl who likes to watch Spongebob on a Saturday morning with cereal. I'm still the same girl who giggles at stupid jokes. But, I still appreciate the fact that I am not completely the same. And, I'm happy about that. I wouldn't want to be the same girl I was 10 years ago. I cringe at the thought if I'm honest.
(Slowly trying to forget the person I was...3 weeks ago much less 10 years ago. So many bad outfit decisions...so little time).
If people are giving you a hard time about "changing" then tell them a F off. Be proud of it. Say, "Yeah I've changed and I'm freaking happy I did." Change is what life's about. Staying stagnated and not growing up, developing and trying new things should never be your goal. Change is good, and change should be encouraged. In someway or another all change is for the best. Even if we didn't make the best decisions leading up to that change, we learned something, which helped us on our path of changing in the right way.
Quite frankly, if you look back on your life and can't see any change or progression...something ought to change...
