Be Who You Are
Life is always a challenge. At some point my mindset shifted from being insecure and not loving myself to falling in love with who I am, owning up to my brutal honesty and just embracing the fact that some people will get me and like me and some people won’t. It’s the same with everyone right?
We all have our strengths and weaknesses, our little quirks, the attributes that allow some people to love us and others who can’t stand us. The truth is, I am still finding my voice. For a long time, I was afraid to write because I cared too much about what others thought about me. I'm not bound by those insecurities anymore so I've decided to just write.
The writing was a dream that started when I was a child. That the dream has come back to life and I wonder about the possibilities of using my voice to help others.
When We Learn to Love Ourselves
The question I have now because this is all so new to me is - what happens when we actually fall in love with ourselves and set out to conquer our goals? Where do the other aspects of our lives fit in? Health and fitness, self-growth, love, and family?
There are moments where I seek out balance and find it but most of the time I am navigating. I do have a clear vision for my life but staying on that path while still allowing the beautiful distractions in along the way is new territory. My path was never this clear before! There’s a part of me that wonders what I will lose along the way.
There’s a fear of the unknown but at the same time, I am excited about the beauty that awaits. There have been so many times in my life that I’ve set goals and not followed through. So, this time I’m going to do as much as I can in silence while still being open to some degree. As a writer, I have to be! There’s really no way around it.
