It’s a question that Gwen Stefani posed to me years ago. It’s a darn good question. What am I waiting for?
In the last week or so, I have undergone a change, a change that I have been ramping up to as I slowly (or in some case,s quickly) approach 30. I have spend most of my life listening to the doubters, the ones who thought I couldn’t do something or have something, the ones who were negative. I have spent most of my life believing I am less for being a curvy and bigger girl, that I am less for being a woman, that I am a supporting player, not a lead. Why? As I age and settle into the woman that I am and that I have always been, and I am becoming less afraid of the power that I hold within myself. I have been lucky enough to have amazing people come into my life and tell me I can do more and be bigger, people who stare at me and can’t quite figure out why I am holding back (you know who you are!) So what am I waiting for? Take a chance, ’cause you might grow. From now on, I am no longer holding back, I am taking on the world head on. Truly becoming Diet Girl and challenging the world. I am thrilled to see what life, and what my 30s bring me.
