Pretty sure I'm still that girl...

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 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...

  2. I still enjoy many things I liked when I was a kid, but the last few years have been basically a big bundle of change, regret and the happiness and then change again :D What actually really changed me were people, judging and school but somehow I made my way through it ;)
    Loved everything you said ;) xx

  3. A friend and I were just talking about changing and how we both have made positive changes in our lives over the past year, and that with work you really can make life better by making the effort to make the right changes. Life is a work in progress!

  4. Agreed! Life is all about changing. If nothing changed, what would be the point? As always I love your writing :)

  5. Totally true. If I sit down and actually put My mind to compare the before Me and the now Me... Ouch, headache!
    I used to think I was so mature (which I was for my age), but I can still point out numerous disasters I could have dodged had I been what I am now...
    Oh, well, change is good. Change teaches Us :)!

    Loads of love, SJay!

  6. I love how candid you are. It's refreshing, beautiful, and inspiring!

  7. Could not have said it any better...change is quite frankly synonymous to life, life delivers you the unexpected at any moment and sometimes you have to roll with the punches, I would be offended if people didnt say I changed throughout the years because I would feel like I haven't grown any lol

  8. Great post! Change can be so good, I really wouldn't want to be the same person I was 5 years ago. I love every single change and if people don't like that they can go.
