On “Being You”

Well I’ll be darned. It’s been ages, my friends. So great to see you all again – hey, is that a new sweater? Did you do something to your hair? You look fabulous!

After the last post I wrote (which I actually deleted due to its pitiful nature), I took a break from the life of someone who would occasionally blog when she felt a little empowered, a little blue, or a little dance-y.

Alright, so I might be feeling a little empowered at this ripe hour of 1 AM on a Wednesday morning, but I was stuck indoors all day yesterday to avoid a forthcoming let down of a blizzard…so I had plenty of time to think and here we are.

Moving away from family and friends for the second time in my life is something I’m always going to reference when discussing major life changes because it continues to be rather influential. Having spent a lot of time alone my first few months out on the east coast, I discovered a handful about myself that I either a) wasn’t aware of before or b) wasn’t comfortable expressing. While I’ve made great strides in self-discovery since August, there’s a lot of work to be done.

In my opinion, the most wonderful place we can reach in life is when we can finally say – and mean – we’re comfortable with who we are and what we enjoy. This is a place I am quickly approaching. While the setbacks are frequent, they’re not as impactful as they used to be.

It’s okay to feel uncomfortable with who you are from time to time, but it’s important to realize that one of the most under appreciated things about life is that we were all created for a super amazing purpose unique to who we are, so grow to enjoy that! Embrace it. Embrace it reeeeal gooooooood.

I hope your journey to this magical place of self-acceptance and appreciation is rewarding. It’s tough, but man is it worth it. Let me tell ya.
