I have to be somebody different tomorrow. Somebody different then who I was yesterday, and who I was two weeks ago, and who I was five years ago. There are things that push and pull us, things that drive our actions like the operating system on a computer. Some days they work in my favor, some days they don't, some days they're meant to be refreshed. Some days things are just supposed to break and the wheels are supposed to fall off, and you know that where you go from here is somewhere different...because there's repairing and restoring, healing, in putting it back together. The beauty part about the entire experience of unraveling is you get to put the pieces back together how you want them. They don't have to fit back into the same mold of who you were and how you saw yourself, or how other people see you. You can start fresh, make new choices, move closer to the person you want to be who's just on the other side of how and where you limit yourself.

Learned behavior. It's not an acting, it's self love, self care, self worth. I wasn't always so sure of myself because I didn't always like who I was...loving myself would have never even been on the gauge. Today, I value who I am and the things I'm good at, and I know I have a purpose. It took me a good twenty years of 'finding myself', and another five years of moping under the table with no direction, to figure out what that purpose truly was.
I'm so resilient.
What else are you gonna do when you're trying to figure out what makes you happy? I don't buy into the thought process that 'mistakes' or 'failures' need to be on display in the Cabinet of Life as big fat you did it wrong awards. How else do you learn life, what you're good at, what you're not, what you like and what you know is not for you? You do it. You get in the trenches and have the experiences that give you the knowledge to move forward in what sets your soul on fire... 🔥 Full post in profile link
