This is your life. Are you who you want to be?
This is my 2,000th post of Sweet Disposition, which I began on August 18th, 2009. It started as a place for me to vent about anything and post whatever I really liked at the time, nothing that I considered that important or meaningful. It has evolved into so much more than that now.
2,000 posts later I have completely changed my life. Throughout my time having this blog I started college, met new friends, started new relationships, fell in love, had my heart broken, was at my lowest point both mentally and physically, failed, struggled to fit in and find my place in the world, vowed to get healthy, started running and working out, lost over 30 lbs, began training for a marathon, became more confident in myself,started loving myself a bit more, and most of all became a much happier person.
It definitely wasn’t easy and of course I struggled (I still do to this day) but let me tell you something - it was completely worth it.
Thank you to all of my followers for keeping me going and inspiring me so much - you are all amazing. This blog played a huge part in my journey to a healthy lifestyle, and I am so glad I have continued it for so long. I definitely wouldn’t be where I am today without the extra support and motivation this community gave me!
