Hello all. It’s been quite some time since I’ve posted here, and I don’t have any good reasons. I have spent the last month having the time of my life. I was with friends, I joined a new group of people who do great work in the national community and I had some experiences that I wouldn’t trade for the world.
However, I wasn’t being true to myself. You know the feeling. You do what everyone else is doing, or what everyone else expects you to do or wants you to do and you do it. You don’t do it to blend in or fit in or stand out. You do it to explore new opportunities. You do it to learn something new, to do something new, to meet new people. And sometimes it works out great.
It did for me for most of what I went through. But there were nights when I was on the verge of severe mental and emotional breakdowns. I slowly became cynical, adopting philosophies that were not my own, that do not echo my own personal views on life and do not promise anything better than what I was going through.
And I wouldn’t trade any of that for the world. I regret nothing.
That being said, it’s time I came back to who I really am and continue growing in who I first started to be. It’s time for me to be true to myself and to grow in what I know and who I truly am. I’m not clear on what that is or who I am, but I’m willing to explore it and take a shot.
So, I’m back. Back to make friends, back to make enemies and back to doing what I’ve been called to do: change the world.
“We know we were made for so much more
Than ordinary lives
It’s time for us to more than just survive
We were made to thrive”
