I have always been someone who was career driven, with clear work ethic and never shied away from hard work. It's was instilled in me growing up. I remember my dad telling me of when I was a baby, he had 2 jobs so at 5pm he'd finish work come home, eat, get a bus into Central London and then work into the early hours.
I always wonder what I will be when I grow up. I know at 33 that is a strange thing to wonder but I really don't feel like a grown up at all, so it is something that I do think about. Of course, top of the list is a Princess (if you didn't guess by the name of my blog) but I don't think Prince Harry is going to be looking for a chubby bride anytime soon!

Having them remove the mirrors was actually a blessing because I became more focused on feeling better than looking better. I actually feel ashamed at how superficial I was. I was grieving the loss of my identity and my life as I knew it, as a part of me had died. I literally woke up as a new person, a burn survivor.
