A new beginning is underway and I couldn’t be more ecstatic! I’ve been doing a lot of thinking/discerning/ reflecting on what my life after graduation would look like and I’ve been overwhelmed. I want to just hit the reset button and re-meet the people I’ve already met as a cool way for us to re-introduce ourselves as who we are today because I believe in growth and change. I learned that people are too comfortable with being unhappy and that’s not where I’m at in my life. Because I’m such a people pleaser, it is difficult to remove others from my life but I also learned that it’s healthy to remove negative energy from my space.
In order for this new journey to work, I had to reflect on the times I have been negative and not fun to be around. I apologized, begged for forgiveness, and wallowed in my karma. I have done the homework to officially move forward and I couldn’t be happier. Difficult decisions are tough to make but that is a part of self care. Self care isn’t always fun and pretty- it is also ugly yet enriching in every aspect.
The journey I am now embarking on is one of togetherness. I want to be with people that are on the same wave length as me, want more out of life and more out of themselves. This will look different for each individual but it is exciting when other are putting in the same amount of work as you are.
This new beginning is still in progress. The season of Lent has given me the opportunity to reflect on the outcomes of my discernment. My days felt longer once I gave up social media and prior to COVID-19, I seemed to appreciate time in a different way than before. I started to think about the things I wanted to do and the people I wanted to see. During that time, I began to weed out seasonal people that I continuously try to hold on to that aren’t meant to travel into my future. I confess: I’M A HOARDER!
With that being said, the seasonal people are being left behind because I keep neglecting my forever friends. It was fun while it lasted but the show must go on.
It’s time to focus on me and those that bring me happiness. I can no longer take them for granted.
Peace, Love, & Light.
