Day 22: How have you changes over the years? Share pictures.
How have I changed? Well that’s a loaded question. I have changed physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. All for the better may I add.
I would say that the biggest change I have noticed is the way I look at things and/or people. I used to take a lot of things personal. But now, I’m more of a ‘bigger picture’ type of person.

Another way I have changed is physically! Ahh, the best part right? lol Yall see that Razor phone in the third picture? haha! Let’s not talk about it. But I guess you can say my body has matured. I love all of my womanly curves, wouldn’t trade them for anything although I am trying to give some back if you know what I mean. 🙂 I have stopped getting relaxers! (Let the church say Amen) In the 2nd and 3rd picture, I have a relaxer. The 4th and 5th pictures is a weave. My hair is longer than that. (Guess I should add some current photos of it later).
