I have been blogging for a long time now and you guys have seen me throughout the years as I have changed and grown. I love that I’ve shared so much of my journey with you guys. BUT I realise that I’ve never shared any pictures of me when I was younger on here.
I have been reminiscing a lot since I moved back to Kenya. I have been thinking a lot about who I thought I would become when I was younger and who I am now. I think my younger self would be proud (and irritated that I never became the lead singer of a band and randomly got discovered even though I have no actual musical talent). We are all on this crazy journey of life and I think I’ve been incredibly lucky and blessed.
To be honest, I haven’t shared pictures of myself when I was younger anywhere much but I recently did a couple of trends on social media and I had to dig up some old photos for that and I thought why not share them here too. So this is me as a child- I have no idea a how old I am but I’m guessing just a couple of years:
Just a little background to this picture- I’m pretty sure my mum had cut my hair for me because she usually cut my hair till I got older. She also loved dressing me up in clothes like these although I generally wore much more tie-dye clothing that she liked to make herself. I’ll share some pictures of me in clothes she made when I was younger if I find them.
And this is me in 2010:
Feels like a lifetime ago if I’m being honest but it’s nice to go down memory lane sometimes and remember the good old days. I usually don’t smile in pictures anymore because I feel like smiling distorts my features and makes my face look bigger than it is but back in the day I didn’t care about things like that and was happy to smile in pictures. And I look super tan because I spent a lot more time outdoors in the sun. I miss the tan if I’m being honest lol. Also those bruises on my knees did absolutely end up becoming permanent scars that I still have. Thanks, past Pooja.
I know this was quite a short post but I thought it would be fun to share something new although those of you who are on my social media pages may have already seen some of these. Maybe not the 2010 one since I dug that up from my old FaceBook page that I don’t really use anymore.
Do you have any favourite memories from when you were younger? What was your favourite hobby when you were young? Let me know in the comments because I love chatting with you guys there!
One quick thing before I end this: I’ve gotten a bunch of spam comments of someone hitting on women in my comments section. Luckily most of them went to spam and are now deleted but if any get by please ignore them! Thanks and sorry for any inconvenience!
