6 MONTHS LATER
Clearly, I'm not very good with this blogging business. I started back up at the beginning of the year with the intent to be more consistent and present with this thing but LIFE happened. We moved back to San Diego and we hit the ground running.
So much has changed in the last 6 months and I am grateful to be where I am at this point in life. New habits incorporated and old habits removed, I can confidently say that I am happy with where life has gotten me & I'm nowhere near done yet. I've never felt more motivated than I do now at this very moment and I have all intentions to keep this momentum going. I'm excited to see where it will lead me.
What I've learned these past 6 months:
You conserve more energy by being less critical. A trait I was not proud of & no longer served me. Life is so much better without it, quite liberating actually. I have my slip-ups, I am human so I can't say I've knocked the bad trait completely but I am getting there.
Meditation does wonders. I've incorporated meditation for at least 5 minutes before work & on my days off when I get up in the morning to set my intentions for the day. It sets my mood and provides clarity and focus that carries me through the day.
I grow where I am happiest. I struggled with conforming to social pressures of what a blogger should be which prevented me from doing and writing about what brings me joy. I was hindered by my own fears and insecurities. But I got tired of seeing others thrive in things that I enjoy doing as well and I want to thrive with them.
I love being married. I know it's still early in our marriage but people often say the first year is the hardest. We've been married for 7 months now and I am proud to say it's been wonderful. Sometimes we wonder if we should be fighting more but why fix something that isn't broken?
I forgot to be true to myself & it took 6 months for me to realize it.
Don't you ever wish there was some "Life Guide" or tutorial on how to navigate these different seasons of your life? Cause I sure do. I suppose that would take away all the fun and excitement from when we do figure it out for two-point-five seconds. Those moments of crystal clear clarity and euphoric realizations of "wow, I get it now!". It's been a journey and this is probably the Aquarius in me but I love learning, expanding, & improving. So here's to more growth and authenticity!
