It’s taken me a long time to accept who I am. Like a lot of women I have spent a large proportion on my life being not very sure about who I am meant to be, which has in some cases caused me to be very much not myself…which is not a good place to be.
It’s true what they say about the older you get, the more comfortable you become in your own skin. In my case I have been able to embrace my true self, I feel I know myself better, and because of this I feel a real sense of contentment. I’m happy that I am a contradiction…I can be glam and like mud, I can enjoy fancy restaurants and a chippy tea in the car, I can wear heels and Wellingtons (not at the same time obviously, although one on each foot, why not?!).
Being relaxed and at ease with myself, just being me, is a really happy place to be.
