There are 6 years between these photos (can ya believe it?!), and a lot has happened in those 6 years. I had the lead role in my senior play, graduated high school, fell in love, went to college, was on the dance team at a D1 school, worked at Disney World, fell out of love, undertook a complete lifestyle change and lost almost 50 lbs, graduated college, started law school and kicked ass my first year, and whew, I’m exhausted just thinking of all of that! Life can be exhilarating and amazing and heartbreaking and tragic, but at the end of the day you’re always going to have yourself to get you through it, so be your own best friend, learn what you like and what you don’t like, learn how to properly take care of yourself, learn who the people in your life are that have your best interest at heart, make mistakes and truly learn from them, figure out who you are as a person and what you want out of life and stop making excuses and just go for it, because there’s nothing more satisfying than looking back and realizing that you’ve accomplished more than you ever thought possible!
Your change is just amazing, mentally and physically. You’re such a role model!
