2013 was a transformative year for me. I launched my website and I’m starting to work towards my life long dream of a clothing line. As this year comes to an end I find myself relflecting on the things that have past and looking forward to the things to come. One word that was every where this year was Selfie. Some people love taking selfies, some people loathe it. Me, I love taking them! Howerver I wasn’t always as camera happy as I am today.
There was a time in my life when I was very insecure. It was due to the aftermath of a relationship that ended because he thought I was too fat for him. Mind you we had been dating for over a year, we knew each other’s families, and in what I thought was love. He said he could not take me seriously because of my weight. And so he gave me an ultimatum. Either I lose weight or lose him. Even though I loved this man, even though I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him, and even though I didn’t want to lose him, deep down in my heart I knew what he was asking wasn’t right. I knew that wasn’t real love. And so I decided to let him go.
