** I'm in need of an outlet, so blogging it is **
Change. It's bound to happen. We're human. We're dynamic. It's inevitable.
The past few months have been full of change - a new home, a new city, a new mindset, a
new career path, a new relationship. Although I'm inclined to say that my life is devoid of all familiar ground, I know that's an exaggeration. I have more familiar ground than I realize, but at this point in time, my mind's clouded, and I just lost sight of it.
This is how your 20s are supposed to go, right???
October has undoubtedly been one of the most challenging and frightening months I
have experienced to-date, but I'd be lying if I said it also wasn't the most thrilling, fulfilling,
and enlightening months too. I've experienced lows (surprisingly similar to those when I lost my dad) and experienced highs - spiritually, professionally, emotionally, and physically. Needless to say, I made a decision this month that made my life do a 180, and I know the emotional roller coaster is just a result.
Regardless of the situation, I need to remember that I am exactly where I'm supposed to be. I'm 22 years old. I have the world at my fingertips (just like Dad used to say). I'm experiencing significant lessons, significant growth, and significant opportunities. I've got to get a freaking grip and disregard the 23856 thoughts floating in and around my brain. Because currently it looks a little something like this.
No es bueno.
I'm going to stop thinking about trying to solve my whole life. Because I clearly don't have that equation. Instead, I'm going to keep thinking about adding additional good things to it, and let my pile of good things grow.
And #smallvictories. Hooray, first 8k!
I'm going to celebrate my life for all that it is instead of all that it's not
and I'm going to endlessly rely on a new kind of "to-do" list:
1. Count my blessings
2. Practice kindness
3. Let go of what I can't control
4. Go with my gut
5. Be productive. Be proactive
6. Breathe. Be calm
I've survived 100% of my worst days. My life is full of abundances.
Today I'm making the commitment to myself to never, ever lose sight of that again.
How do you deal with change?
