  1. I love this little prose. It’s such an important reminder to jump out of the comfort zone!

    Wow this is so so important!

    I am working currently with brides, doing their fittings and getting there dresses sorted for their big day.
    There are two types of women, one who love the dress and feel amazing, and the second who are just looking for flaws, thinking ‘the dress will look better when I have just lost a little more weight’.
    The way women feel has NOTHING to do with their dress size, dress price, looks, or anything, but how they feel about themselves.
    If we are always comparing ourselves to some distant idea of perfection we will never be happy, but if you realise that being happy with ourselves has nothing actually to do with our, size, hight, age, finances, following (insert any word here), it becomes freeing because we can be happy with how we are now.

    Its something some women are born with, but is something that we can cultivate by working on ourselves! I cannot wait to here more of your journey and how you get on!

    This is amazing good luck!!

    Wow, thanks for sharing, I really needed to read this this morning. I am in the same place, hitting 40 and finally figuring out who I am, what I like, not what others perceive me to be is truly hard and eye opening. I can’t wait to read more.
