I genuinely just feel like I’m at a turning point in life.
I've been through a lot in my life, including battles with self-confidence and peace. As I grew out of that phase, I came into point of gentle rediscovery. That was timid confidence, trying to find a lost version of myself, rather than create her.
Now, I’m at rebuilding stage. I want to make a new life. I have a passion and drive in me for something new. I want to share my thoughts, start from scratch, live in a new way.
For me, that doesn't just mean physically. The internet puts constant pressure to update your aesthetic, environment, wardrobe, and to have a glow-up. But I want to have an all-around life transformation. For me, however, that can include physical symbolization. Cutting my hair is greatly symbolic for the different phases in my life, and I want to get piercings to symbolize my power and strength. Also, I'm currently interested in a minimalist outlook on possessions.
But I want to live an intentional lifestyle that revolves around the holy parts of every-day living, and I want to work from the inside-out. Material things can certainly be an aspect, but not the only one to live a truly fulfilling life.
What makes you HAPPY? Like, ACTUALLY happy?
For me, that's staying in bed a little bit longer than some people consider productive. But not wasting time while I'm in bed -- I want to read a chapter of my current book each morning on the weekends. That's truly restful to me.
For me, that's not putting off my schoolwork or tasks, doing the best I can and giving it my all. That can be hard, but it is the most rewarding feeling in the world for me.
I want to push myself to grow, but in the most beautiful way possible, with no hesitations left in starting.
So, now is the time to start asking yourself: What can I do to support myself in this season?
