Does anyone else wish they could go back to a younger version of themselves and say “by the way, you’re going to be a boss ass bitch in a few years time?” Because I wish I could do that at least 80% of the time.
I feel like I have become such a different person from who I was when I was 21, and even now I feel like this past year I have become more of a boss ass bitch than ever before. I love telling people that when I was younger I was this quiet person who was terrified to speak up (seriously, ask my parents!) and for them to say Nooooo you were never like that!
But that’s the thing. I have become such a gobby person (especially this past year) and stopped giving such a shit about what other people think of me that I feel like a completely different person. A couple years ago, literally a couple, I would be so anxiety driven that I was too scared to talk to people who made me feel insecure or intimidated me. I was scared to speak up and engage in conversations but now I’m like HELLO LETS BE FRIENDS! To anyone who I find interesting and I have met such amazing people and gained amazing opportunities from it.
If you knew me when I was in my early 20’s, you would have seen a young woman who was unsure how to approach people, you would have seen a woman who felt completely lost and unsure what she was doing with her life. But now I am more confident in myself and with that I want to do and where I want to be. And that’s amazing.
So yeah, to the 21 or even 24 year old me... you will be a boss ass bitch in a few years and you will be so happy about it. Sure, you’ve been through some bad shit so you should be a sad bitch (thanks Ari) but that hasn’t stopped you from coming back and being stronger. So keep your head high and rock that shit! Everyone has the potential to be the person they want to be. You don’t need to be the loudest person in the room, you don’t need to be the most sociable person in the room, but as long as you are putting yourself as a priority and doing what makes YOU happy then that is all that matters. You do you, and be the boss ass bitch you were born to be. And let that ‘boss ass bitch’ vibe be whatever you want it to be, as long as you feel powerful and confident in what you’re doing.
Until next time, my B.A.B’s
