Today marks the first anniversary of positivelyconfident and I feel like I should share with you what I have learned through starting this project. It has been a great experience, one where I have grown in ways I never expected. Although, I must admit it has been a challenge— the constant pressure of writing pieces that I hope many of you can connect to, the time management, and learning how to follow everything I write to all of you. I feel the latter was the most challenging for me.
Throughout my teenage years you could say I was timid and quiet. I knew a lot of my peers, but had few friends. I mostly focused in my studies and extracurricular activities. I always knew what I wanted to do in life and the kind the future I wanted—even to this day. I always felt like I wasn’t who I wanted to be. I felt people would see this shy girl, who was too afraid to crawl out of her shell, and that’s not who I wanted to be. I saw myself as someone who is strong, confident, honest, and compassionate; Once I started to work on myself, other people began to see me in the same light. It didn’t happen overnight, but positivelyconfident has helped keep me true to myself, and stay positive through the obstacles of life.
I hope sharing a bit about myself and how I have grown will give you hope to continue your journey and see the good in yourself. I have many wonderful plans for this coming year and I hope you can be a part of it.
