In less than a week I turn 28. In less than a week I get to wrap my arms around my long distance love and sink into my first relaxing weekend in a long time.
Fall is such a precious time of change and I'm trying to be self-aware. Where do I need to make changes in my life? Where can I improve?
I am telling myself - stress less. It doesn't make anything better. I am telling myself - love more. The people in your life who love you are the most important. I am telling myself - work hard. Doing anything half way has never given me pleasure or the rewards I desire.
As always I search for balance. Trying to remind myself to sleep. To get outside. To make time to breathe.
I remind myself to stop worrying about what others think. This is my journey. They are on their own. All I can do is be loving, respectful, and present.
I am still absorbing this life so far. What a trip. I am proud of myself for the risks I've taken and the dreams I've chased. I have yet to make the kind of impact I want in the world, but I have some years left.
In the meantime I'll continue to ask questions, and try no to worry so much about the answers.
