Sure I watered it, and even mowed it, but that wasn’t going to give me rich bed of flowers to lie in comfortably.
What I want you to realize is that you don’t have to fit the storyline – theirs, his, or hers.
While you are eating your ‘last’ meals and planning how 2017 is going to bring about a new, fit, fabulous you, life is happening.
You instantaneously realize that everything about your life at that point in time is unsteady, changing, wavering, and altogether uncertain.
I can be a different version of myself in front of different people, and it doesn’t make me any less authentic.
When you walk away from a toxic relationship. Because being single is hard, but spending your life trapped in a relationship that makes you feel miserable and unloved is a million times harder (and scarier).
“I’m quitting my job to pursue my anxiety full-time.”
Be okay with being bad at stuff and be okay with sucking at stuff. Learn to find comfort in it, even if you hate it, because it means you’re doing so much more and growing so much more than the version of yourself that is sitting safely to the side – the one who is never failing but also never moving from that one spot.
Being in public and seeing something on the internet that makes you LOL and being unable to stop yourself. And then seeing some stranger laughing just because you’re laughing.
You gave me doubt and uncertainty but those times became reminders that I am only human and that I will never be perfect. You taught me to accept my imperfections and to let go of everything holding me back.
