Sam Smith shared a throwback picture celebrating their “non-binary gloriousness” and it’s 200 per cent the energy we want to bring into 2020.

In a tear-jerking Instagram post, the singer reflected on their journey in the last 10 years, one dotted with four Grammy wins, an Oscar and coming out as non-binary.

Paired with an old snap of the star circa 2009, the 27-year-old urged their fans to “celebrate your sexy selves”.

Sam Smith reflects on a decade of success, hardship and knock-off bags.

“So tomorrow is 2020,” they wrote, “wow.

“I find times like these are this crazy mix of happy and sad, where we look back at the last 10 years and think of all we’ve been through in our lives.

“Seeing you all post throwback photos and moments made me message my friend from school and ask if she had any photos from 10 years ago when I was 17.

“And I found this iconic picture above.

So tomorrow is 2020. Wow. I find Times like these are this crazy mix of happy and sad, where we look back at the last 10 years and think of all we’ve been through in our lives. Seeing you all post throwback photos and moments made me message my friend from school and ask if she had any photos from 10 years ago when I was 17. And I found this ICONIC picture above Hahahaha. This picture made me emotional because the confidence and freedom I’ve felt the last year is EVERYTHING I had those 10 years ago. This to me is a beautiful and important reminder that as we get older, life can get tough. As growing adults we get launched into this sometimes cruel and heartless world. And through that we sometimes feel like we lose ourselves and that spark we once had. But the truth is, if we fight on, do the work, keep singing, dancing and loving… we will be ok. The kid in this picture went to school everyday in their non binary gloriousness and ignored every stare or verbal taunt that was thrown their way. That kid never left. They just had some hardcore feelings to feel. So to all you beautiful humans on the last day of 2019, my only advice after my very short time on this earth is… FEEL IT ALL!!!! And celebrate your sexy selves. I’m raising a spliff and a glass of wine to the sky for you all ❤ p.s. that’s a fake Louis V #cozimtherealthing

The ‘Stay With Me’ singer also rang in the New Year by showing just how far they’ve come from their fake LV bag days with a photograph of themselves lounging by the pool and enjoying the sun in an undisclosed tropical location:

A mood not just for 2020, but for eternity.
