I’ve been trying to write this blog for a few days. I have not been sure how to start it. How to express what I am trying to say. To put in words the things in my constantly racing mind.
Recently a friend told me I was different, not the same person. I am still unsure if it was meant positively or negatively. I’ve over thought this comment, naturally. What has come from my over thinking is the realization, I am different. I am not the same person and I am happy I am different. I’ve changed and I’ve finally accepted change. I want to adapt.
Growth is important in life. If you stay comfortable what are you getting from life? If you shy away from hard decisions and difficult truths then you’re cheating yourself. If you turn to substances to ignore or numb these things then you’re cheating yourself and everyone in your life. I’ve talked about self love before and how it is sometimes making the difficult decisions.
I woke up a few weeks ago and felt different. I finally felt comfortable in my skin for the first time in a LONG time. I felt ready to embrace change. I am, everyday, making small decisions to implement change. If who I am growing into results in the loss of people who can not accept change, then that is something I will have to face.
A friend of mine has been my biggest cheerleader lately. She herself has been adapting to change. She has finally reached a point for personal growth. She is a few steps ahead of me and has been understanding and selfless. Watching her has given me inspiration. I am proud of her beyond words.
On Monday I am going to start a 30 day minimalism challenge below. I am going to continue to promote personal growth. To become a person I like. Someone I can be proud of. To continue to love myself. Here is to a month of small steps. Also here is to you for reading all the random thoughts in my head that I’ve tried to put out in the world.
