Ah yes, the dreaded first post. Every blog needs an introduction, but I’ll keep mine brief.
There is a quote found in Henry D. Thoreau’s Walden that says: “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.”
This isn’t the original quote, social media has adapted the actual quote for its own purposes, but the adaptation suits me just fine. For most of my life, I have been told that I need to work on my confidence. I don’t know what it is – I just seem to be lacking in the self-love and self-belief that comes so naturally in others. Despite the fact that I am surrounded by family and friends and a husband who loves me, I struggle with loving myself.
So who am I? I’m Michelle, currently residing on beautiful Prince Edward Island, and partway through my B.Ed program. I’ve been married for 1.5 years to my wonderful husband.
Now that I’m nearing the big 3-0, I figure it’s time to work on myself and become someone who carries herself with confidence and poise. I want to be someone who radiates with self-acceptance and lives without the fear of constantly being judged. Here I hope to find myself. Life is good, but I know I can make it even better.
