WHAT DO YOU SEE?.
What you see with your eyes isn’t always the reality.
On the left, was my 18th birthday. This was the photo that made me want to change.
This was the photo that triggered something in my mind.
This was the the photo that saved me from digging myself further into a hole.
On the left You see a big smile, a happy, confident looking boy.
In Reality Ill tell you what I was feeling and what I see.
I see a fake smile covering up a lot anger.
I see a boy who is hurting.
I see a boy who has no confidence and has no idea how to get out of the hole he is in.
I see a boy who knows he is overweight but had no idea know how or where to even start to change. ———
On the right, is the photo that shows everyone that it is possible to achieve whatever it is you want, that if you want it enough and go at it with the right mindset you can do it. I turned that “I want to change” into “I did change”. I used that spark that clicked in my head to its full potential and dragged myself that hole I was in.
On the right you see a man who isn’t smiling, you see a man posing, you see a man seeking attention.
Ill tell you what I see.
I may not be smiling on the outside but I am so happy on the inside.
I see a man who has not only achieved his initial goal of losing abit of weight but smashed so much more than he set out to do.
I see 9 years of hard work paying off.
I see a lot of failing but never giving up.
I see a man not after attention but proud to show off what he has achieved.
I have seen myself grow into something I never thought at first I could achieve.
I see a man who is finally in control.
No matter how long it takes. No matter what obstacles get in your way. Don’t give up and you will get there.
