Can I Be Conceited For A Second??

I love how much I've changed.

Look at me!

I was five years old in this picture.

                               I was in 8th grade in this picture

and NOW look at me!!
Cute, right?

If you ever told me how pretty I would be. I would have thought you were nuts. 
If you ever told me how much of a people person I would be. I would have thought you were insane.
I never imagined that my life would be more than I ever dreamed of.
I never imagined that I would love reading and writing.
I never imagined that I would actually BE in college. 
What a dorkie little girl I was:
I actually owned a pair of hott pink corduroy pants when I was in sixth grade and I WORE them. Bleck.
The change I've seen in myself is AMAZING!
I'm not perfect. I know that. I've just been able to see myself in a different light. 
And that's awesome.

I've learned that you've just gotta be yourself and be happy with that.
Self-confidence is an automatic man/woman attract-er.
self-confidence is something that I definitely have.
I still have my moments of 'I wish I was skinny' or 'Why doesn't he like me?'
for the most part, I like myself. And that's a talent I will always cherish.

I just felt like be conceited just for a second. Can you blame me?? ;)
