Today is not going to be a post about my struggles and whatnot. Nope. This post is about ALL of you who have made me feel inspired and energetic about life and have enouraged me even when I didn’t feel like I deserved such kind words. Today was quite the landmark for my little blog. I officially have over 3,000 lovely followers!
When I first began this journey toward finding myself beyond OCD, I can honestley say that I NEVER thought anyone would be interested in reading what I had to say. I think my entire life I’ve had self-esteem issues, which have diminished quite a bit in the last few years. However, I believe I have been stuck in the mindset of having to constantly feel like I need to apologize for myself or feel ashamed about the way I look or dress. You all have given me the confidence to highlight who I am a little better and with honesty.
The photo above is the iconic clocktower at my Alma mater, which makes it into just about every photo of the university alongside the sample gates. My boyfriend and I decided that the weather was not perfect or wonderful, but decent enough to go out for a walk and take pictures. There wasn’t much to photograph because nothing is blooming yet and the lighting wasn’t particularly great either, so what I had to work with was limited.
The picture might seem random, but it’s not. To me, I feel like this photo of the clocktower in the background represents the time I’ve had with all of you and the future yet to come. I will be honest. I didn’t notice that the lamp was broken until I got home and looked at my pictures, but now that I notice it I can’t help but notice anything else about the picture 😉 I hope you can look past that imperfection and see what I see and appreciate the time we’ve been allowed to share.
Once again, thank you for all the kindness and support you’ve given to me.
