  • Im late to join the bandwagon 😝 #pubertychallenge #howharddidaginghityouchallenge #howharddidpubertyhityou The old photos on the left are about 9 years old. Swipe for additional comparisons. :3 I was actually using a proper camera back then. 😱 That was clumsier than phones, but I kind of miss it. Quality still seems better. 😅 As for the tan situation - my actual tan is somewhere in between Id say. 🤔 I did get paler with time, but not this much. 😅The old photo was taken in the summer after loads of sun, and in dark light... and the recent photo was taken just recently, in winter and with bright light. 😅 But its hard to find photos this old in the first place so these are as good as it gets. 😆 Credits: Photo 1: Choker: @guangorenabrand Photo 2: Jewelry: @gothmall Makeup: @darlinggirlcosmetics Photo 3: Choker: @guangorenabrand Ring: @metal_liquor Makeup: @darlinggirlcosmetics Bracelets: @soufeeljewelry

  • #10yearchallenge - 10 years ago I was a mum of 3 but I HATED being a mum, I hated it and constantly reminded myself of everything I had ‘given up’ for these 3 little humans who I CHOSE to bring into the world... - It’s a hard thing to admit that I found no joy in raising my girls and still lives my life as a childless woman as often as I could. - I went out most weekends and drank most nights, I still took party drugs often and entered into toxic relationships with ‘friends’ and lovers willingly. My kids spent more time at nanny’s or with their father at home then they did with me and I hated myself for it but I did NOT want to give up my ‘work hard, party fucking harder’ lifestyle. - I was a bad mum. - I gave myself excuses like ‘I’m Doing the best I can with what I have’ but that was a huge pile of bullshit, I was just a lost girl with a huge chip on my shoulder that believed wholeheartedly that the world Owed me something and that my children were an inconvenience. - Years and years of therapy, conquering addictions, beating eating disorders, taking parenting classes and learning self love have led me to where I am today. - Where the universe knew I was always meant to be. I am a woman who has discovered her worth and has learnt to love herself. I am a woman who owns her shit and lives her own normal. I am a woman who loves the life she lives even through loss and heartache I love the life I have been gifted. - 10 years later and I am a woman who loves NEARLY every moment I get to be a mum to my girls 💜💜 - #mumthatsabadword - - - - - - - #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodrising #10yrchallenge #flashback #sydneymums #mummyblogger #selflove #overcomingaddiction #overcomingdepression #bipolar #parenting #positiveparenting #growingup #woman #womenempowerment #goodparenting #lovinglife #transformation #theuniverseprovides

  • Seen a few doing this so thought why not. 10 year challenge! Well well I’m much happier with myself & life now than back then. Don’t see much change in my looks just 30kg lighter 😆 back then. . This Challenge did however stir up some feelings inside & have made me reflect alot more about the last decade. I have kicked so many of my goals & then still a few still do get onto. . Will be doing some time out reflecting & journaling this weekend. . I know my Self-Care & Love is so on track now compared to back then. I listen to myself more & create space for myself. Looking forward to another great decade. . #10yearchallange #10years #decade #juanitaheart #growingup #skincare #selfcare #selflove #reflecting #goodtimes

  • Today marks the last day for Tyler at his first school. A place where he has made his own friends, had his first batch of teachers, where he learnt to find comfort from people other than family, and most importantly a place that helped shape him to who he is today. Swipe to see his photo taken on the first day of school 2 years ago where he cried like a baby - and the crying lasted for months😵. Today, he has become a sociable boy and the school is like his second home that he’s so comfortable with. He even knows when a teacher from another class is absent from school!😂 Tomorrow will be a new chapter for him as he starts his new school and I’m so proud that he’s excited for the new environment, and meeting new people! #newchapter #growingup

  • This #10yearchallenge is brought to you by #selflove. Technically there are 11 years between these two photos but you get the point. The 11 years in between these two pictures are where things got rough and she lost sight of herself and what mattered most. There aren’t too many differences between these two pictures. If there were a 5 year challenge, I’m sure the differences would be much greater. In both I see a woman who knows how far she has come and is excited for where her future will take her. The girl on the left thought she’d make an impact by being on stage and telling other people’s stories whereas the woman on the right is making an impact by telling her own story on her own stage. In both photos, her confidence and inner strength shows through. Take the time to realize how far you’ve come, what you’ve learned, how you’ve grown and where your going. #growingup #glowingup #selfdiscovery #confidence #personaljourney

I consider myself a bottle of fine wine. I get better with age.

  • #10yearchallenge . **Read** . A little about me. . The thing about pics is you can’t get the full story from them. The guy on the left is a complete stranger, not only to me but to my family, friends and who knew me back then and know me now. . Yeah there’s a difference in looks big time but what you can’t see is my personality, all the struggles and challenges life threw at me. 10 years ago my senior year of high school I was a fucking asshole who hated anyone and everyone, including my parents. It took me forever to realize how wrong I was. I’m just glad I woke the fuck up. . When my mother was first diagnosed with brain cancer I was just starting to come around. The thought that I could lose someone who had risked so much for me and would move a mountain for me to see me succeed woke me the fuck up. . It sucks it took me so long to wake up. There’s so many things I regret that I did, and said but it is what it is, I was forgiven I’m still not sure how but I was. I’m grateful for all the lessons I have learned over the past 10 years. I’m proud of who I am, what I have overcome and what I am accomplishing every day. . .

  • It is so funny, that when we where kids we always wanted to grow up. Maybe because we thought we could make our own decision about wether we wanted to eat 20 cookies in a row or if we wanted to be home by 11pm instead of 9pm from our playdate with friends. But actually the only decisions we need to make now concern our future, our bills, how to socialise and network, how to make our parents proud.. We all know what I mean. And yes it's hard, but also you can take your car and go on roadtrips, you can spend 100€ on a jacket you like because you work, you can plan and shape your future actively! So yes, "take me back to the basics and the simple life" would be nice but on the other hand we would have to relive puberty and honestly who would want that? 😂☁️ Oh and btw the song is called Ease by Troye Sivan 🎶 -------------- Source tumblr #astethic #basiclife #beautyoflife #troyesivan #ease #song #inspiration #goodlife #roadtrip #puberts #growingup #friends #future #ocean #clouds #tumblr #weheartit

  • I’ve seen a few versions of this going around so I thought I’d join in: 1. Age 4 in summer 1990 with my Grandad (after I had cut off all my hair and hid it in my toy oven so my Mum wouldn’t notice 🤣) 2. October 2009 age 23 when my eldest was 6 months old 3. one from December 2018 as I don’t have any of me this year yet that feature my face 4. And finally one of the very very few photos of me in 2019 in the last few months of being 32 - #growingup #growingold #itsbeenaverytoughdecade

  • First learning of 2k19: I deserve good things. I deserve food. I deserve hugs. I deserve patience. I deserve rest. I deserve attention. Second learning of 2k19: I am not always capable of giving all this back to others even tho I want to. Third learning of 2k19: that’s okay. We grow together. Still I want to apologize if I ever made you feel you don’t deserve all good there is. #loveyou #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthadvocate #recoveryispossible #recoveryisworthit #growingup
