LiFE Lesson #4


This blog is the story of how I became the woman I am today. And LiFE Lesson #4 is all about one of the most important lessons I have learnt as I grow into my Self.

Confidence is not “They will like me”. Confidence instead is “I’ll be fine if they don’t”

Christine Grimmie

My writing starts from the beginning, when I had no confidence in myself in any aspect of my world.

Sir has made it very clear to me over the years that it is me that is beautiful. And my beauty is not dependent on the body that I live in. This has been backed up by leaving the man who stripped me of my self worth, building friendships with wonderful, loving people and learning to feel comfortable in my own skin. Completely by accident this blog has developed me in ways I never would have considered possible. With photo memes aplenty this space has been a place for me to appreciate the beauty in others. And to start to actually SEE myself.

Over the last (almost) 3 years I have lost 7 stone. Just a gentle reduction in my weight, healthy changes. I had stopped noticing my size, instead learning to love myself inside my body rather than the packaging. Imagine my surprise when I started to notice a woman in shop windows, mirrors and photographs. When I realised that she was me!

While it is nice to be liked, my confidence comes from a place of not worrying if I have to face the world alone.

I’ve done it before, and look what happened!

Life Lesson #4 is the next instalment of body confidence discovered through lingerie and quotes. You can find more here.


    1. Thank you. It’s never been about the outside as I gained the body confidence at my biggest. But its nice when the outside looks nice too.
