The photo accompanying this article is of me at the end of a 30km charity walk for Beyond Blue. I love this photo because it expresses everything about me:
Fit and healthy
No BS - this is definitely not an airbrushed photo. What you see is what you get with me
Goal focussed and driven. I was in a team of 4 lovely friends and we totally smashed this walk in 6 hours. The drive and energy that we put into that walk was off the scale. This is how I approach everything in my life ... I live life to the max
Happy and fun. Even after walking at a crazy pace on a very hot day I still manage to be goofy and smiley
I also felt so flipping proud of our efforts - we raised $2500 for Beyond Blue which is an Australian charity which supports people suffering from mental illnesses such as anxiety and depression.
What has this got to do with confidence? Well this photo screams self confidence to me and I look at it often to remind myself that I can achieve great things whilst remaining true to myself.
