Hello! HEY! Hi!! Remember that time I blogged once a week every Friday?! I’m getting back to that. I tried this week but I just got back from a European vacation and then a weekend in NYC for The Curvy Con. Whirlwind, people, it was a whirlwind.
I’m going to be honest, I didn’t leave the trip feeling amazing or inspired like I wanted to. I left in my feelings, overwhelmed even. I still haven’t worked out why I felt that way but being home and getting my life back has been completely refreshing! I love my life, honestly. I have the best people around me, I’m doing things I love and I’ve been successful. What I got from the trip and the convention was a new appreciation for what I have.
It’s hard for me to enjoy the journey. My whole life I thought I should be ahead of where I was, work harder, be something. I still struggle with this but it’s moments of clarity that make me realize, stop. I graduated college two years ago and I’m so proud of where I am today. I’m a different person then I was then, I’m a different person then I was six months ago and that is okay. We don’t work this hard to stay the same, am I right Jay Z?! Taking a moment to gather my thoughts and to really reflect has been extremely rewarding, I have a new appreciation for the now, the now that I have created for myself. I don’t know what next month, next year will look like but I’m happy now and that’s something I need to stop and enjoy!
