This is only two years apart! I’m finally becoming the person I’ve always wanted to be: a fiery, curvy redhead pinup! My biggest regret is not embracing who I was because of the lack of acceptance of others. I love who I am, who I’ve become. I shouldn’t have dulled that for anyone #missi #missosiriarose #styleprogression

It’s weird how I’m not that girl anymore. The girl on the left is literally a different person. I was so unsure and insecure within myself. I thought I knew what I wanted. I didn’t know how to take care of myself. I was dependent on people I shouldn’t have been.

To now. I feel like such a strong woman. I just keep growing and
getting stronger in almost every way. In 6 months I’ve already achieved things I thought were impossible at the start of the year.

You aren’t magically a grown up at 18. You keep growing as you age. You find yourself in adult hood and begin to make a life for yourself. It’s all about a positive outlook and a good driving force.

My guy tells me there are two kinds of people. Valley dwellers, who constantly say I wish and mountain climbers who will always keep climbing higher. He says valley dwellers can become mountain climbers but climbers will always be climbers. We can’t quit. And I know that he’s right. I’ll always strive to keep getting better, no matter how hard things get. Because I want the best and it’s just what I do. I climb.

So much personal growth in the last two years! I came out of tremendous adversity and to my surprise I begun to blossom. I have never been as true to myself as I am now. I have grown from a girl to a strong, determined, amazing young woman and I will never dull myself for another ever again. Being true to myself has been one of the biggest steps to accepting myself as a whole and finding out more of who I am! I’m SO much happier now than I have ever been. I no longer keep the company of toxic people but instead have incredibly positive, supportive people in my life! It’s been an incredible 12 months for me in particular and I’m looking forward to another 12 months of growth!!
