Tbt to when I was probably around 15 or 16 years old.
.
When there was no social media, comparison anxiety, face-tune, filters, body-shaming, body-image worries or a need to feel compelled to look a certain way, to be a certain size or body shape.
.
We all wanted to look our best and wear the latest fashions. .
We didn't eat fast food as it didn't really exist yet, or snack continuously throughout the day. .
So weight issues were less than nowadays as we ate a healthier and less processed diet. .

If you take on the challenges that life offers you, they can take you to exciting places

If you take on the challenges that life offers you, they can take you to exciting places.
.
When life offers you an opportunity outside your comfort zone seize it with both hands and go for it.
.
I have just done this. .
Many of my age would not. I'm 64.  They would say " You're brave, I wouldn't do this, but well done." .
Watch this space. .
I am going to be part of an exciting campaign that is something I would never have considered doing a few years ago. .
I'm braver now and I have to walk the walk and talk the talk if I am going to inspire and bang on about positive body image, confidence and being yourself whatever age, shape or size you are with no filters. .
Be bold. Be brave. Be you.
