Let's grow old together?

There's nothing quite like feeling like you've known a person longer than you have.

Rather than introducing myself through words, I thoguht I'd give you a glimpse of me over the years.

After all, pictures paint an image clearer than words could ever portray...

This is the youngest picture of me that I have on my laptop - I think I was about eight. I really miss my hair being that length!

I have a feeling that this was my twelfth birthday... I look pretty bad, it's got to be said.

When I moved up to high school, I turned a bit gothic!

Then I had all my hair cut off :(

And dyed it red :)

And this is me now... well, in February anyway. My hair is brown again, and nearly as long as it was before. And I look a little less scary (although it's still there, don't worry)!

Quickest journey through my life ever? Yes.

It's funny how we change... I look back and envy some of the pictures of me, wondering why I changed and mostly, wondering why I thought so little of myself.

I wish that when these were taken I had more confidence in myself. I often wonder how different my life would be now if I had just grasped opportunities with both hands instead of being shy. However, the past cannot be changed, but the future can be.

Take opportunities; you never know if you'll ever get them again.

Believe in yourself; you never know when you might need to.

You are beautiful, I promise.
