I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon with my 10 year challenge. Well, technically 9 year challenge, I was 17 when I decided to dye my hair blue! I couldn't find a picture of me as a 16 year old. Other than having normal hair now I still think I look exactly the same 😂😂. The biggest difference between these pictures is definitely internal. I have been through so many changes in the last 10 years and grown so much as a person. Especially in the last 2 years I feel like I'm becoming more true to myself that I ever have been before, Alhamdulillah. You never stop growing and learning no matter how old you are.
I think it's important to self reflect and this 10 year challenge should be so much more than just a superficial social media trend looking at external appearances and everyone's #glowup. But take it as an opportunity to look back and see how far you've come as person, and how much we have all grown and developed. Be proud of who you are, everything you have achieved in life and every challenge or difficulty you've overcome, to get to where you are now.
Looking forward to the next 10 years, I've still got a long way to go to be the person that I aspire to be one day, but every day I'm so much happier with who I am now, and one day closer to making my own dreams come true.
Keep dreaming, and stay happy. Lots of love xxx
