I guess you can call this somewhat of an ode to my last few days at home. I should be packing, organizing my clothes + shoes, and getting myself together to make this move but.. priorities, right? I’ve never been hesitant to voice my disdain for Connecticut but, I can’t ignore the fact that I just might miss it. Did that really just come out of my mouth?
Home is home at the end of the day. That’s something that I’ve definitely realized the older I’ve become. No matter where you go in this world, home is where your heart is. I was tweeting recently how I have the tendency to always run back to what’s comfortable. Taylor made such a valid point that it really just comes down to human nature, which I completely agree with. I just know myself inside & out and when I’m uncomfortable with a situation or circumstance I’m so quick to just run away from it. Always. In the back of my mind I know I have the comforts of home to come back to.
I’m really internalizing this whole new beginnings mindset because with this move I can’t just run away if I’m unable to adjust and learn to love my new situation. Forces me to grow up. I need that. Honestly, I’m blessed to have this opportunity and I’m ready to go at it full throttle. Tunnel vision baby.
I was born and raised in Norwalk. Went to school in Stamford. I’ve lived in the same house for 18 years. While I’ve had the luxury of traveling pretty consistently, the 203 is all I’ve known. My whole life has been here and now, with my 21st birthday only 8 days away, I’m about to embark on a entirely contrastive journey with [me, myself, and I] and I couldn’t be more ready.
Everything is about to shift and all I can say is this: I’m definitely content with how I’m feeling about 2015 and my twenties. It’s just all about making adjustments, staying consistent, releasing and accepting nothing but positive energy, remaining focused, and never losing sight of that end goal. Just remain focused on becoming a better you.
Remember.. the most challenging and significant relationship you have is with yourself.
