The first time I looked at this photo I didn't like it. I thought, "good lord who is that!" I still think that a little bit, but I also think they "hey that's me! Ain't too shabby, you're a catch, girl, work that camera!" because my inner cheerleader is 'Connie' from 'Big Mouth'. A huge lesson I've learnt this year already has been about self-support, or "self-cheerleading", if you will, and the importance of believing in your own success before expecting others to. I've been dealing with the dreaded 'r' word recently, old mate rejection, and it's been pretty shite to say the least, but I've pulled myself through it thanks to Connie and I'm freaking PROUD boys and girls. I'm not great yet, but that's sort of a relief, because it means there's so much more to learn, and I'm here for that. I love a good bit of education. Self-cheerleading is the theme of 2019. Get around it, people!
