Up close and personal: it's how I share things. It's also how I process things.
In a world where everything has become so rushed, distanced, and superficial, it's easy to get swept up in the comparison of others. Being honest, open, and patient can be really reeeally tough, but I've found it's more rewarding than to try concealing every flaw and hang-up I encounter.
This isn't to be confused with complaining or spreading negativity, but rather having a willingness to be vulnerable.
That being said, my life isn't always picture perfect. I have obstacles like everyone else and often question where my life is going. It's a balancing act of acknowledging the bad and appreciating the good.
Example: my knee has been acting up, making it impossible to go running. This is a bummer, but it's also an opportunity to focus on my writing. 📝
Another example: my car broke down a while back. The costs to fix it were overwhelming, but I took the opportunity to bike everywhere the sun does and doesn't shine while saving up.
Fast-forward to today and I have the funds to fix my car! Along with some biking miles under my, er, seat
I can't say what tomorrow has in store for any of us, but I can promise to be as open and encouraging as possible while we all keep pushing forward, regardless of there being sunshine or not 💪🏼 #shredtilyadead
