I’m so excited to discover that I’m giving myself permission to be myself. To have fun and enjoy my life for me and not solely as a momma. I make plenty of memories with my little person. But the Color Run was for me. Every powdery, colorful, skin-staining minute of it!
I know, life isn’t always going to go perfectly. In fact, it will likely be filled with many unexpected challenges. My hope is that I can get to a point where those challenges don’t set off a negative mental spiral. A point where I can treat myself with the love and forgiveness that I would show to others.
When I got Molly’s email notifying me I was a finalist in the Season 6 Stratejoy Blogger search, I was getting ready to board a plane to the Blissdom blogging conference. It was late February, and I was just starting to come down from a bad winter. I was down and out, depressed, anxious, and suffering from esphagitus.
There’s something I think about a lot. But I never want to talk about it outloud. Something that sets my stomach churning in that I’m-about-to-vomit way. My mind goes into hyperoverdrive. I want to squeeze my eyes shut and pull myself into a ball and try not to move.
I’m not waiting on his job anymore. I can’t wait for us to get into one city. It would be perfect if the stars would align, and we would end up in the same city, amazeball jobs, and found the perfect house…but life doesn’t work like that.
I’ve felt like I’ve lost momentum in many aspects of my life, which has made me stop, and ask myself how the hell do you balance everything in your life?
I was waiting for the easier part of life. Waiting for the good stuff, waiting for the perfect conditions to start, I closed myself off, locked down like Fort Knox, and held steady, I suppose in the hopes that the good stuff would just slide down into perfect alignment. Business ownership, boyfriend, financial security, happiness, fitness.
Considering where I was two years ago, my life doesn’t seem so bad today. It’s perfectly fine by many standards, but it’s still not full of that audacious joy I’ve heard so much about.
My 22nd birthday was spent sipping hot chocolate in front of the Eiffel Tower. That evening I realized how alive I was. An unforgettable moment accented by the twinkling lights around and above. That moment.
Somewhere over the past two years, I lost sight of my dreams, my moments, and began to settle into a “normal” routine.
And that is not okay with me.
These last couple of months, my road feels a little bit like the New Jersey Turnpike, where I once drove in complete circles for an hour. Do you ever go through those phases, where you know the destination and what it looks like, but your damn GPS keeps messing up and sending you down some side street, or veering off onto the wrong ramp? It sucks.
You don’t have to be perfect. You don’t have to be right. You just have to be as fully YOU as you can be, because that is your gift to share with the rest of us. Just you. You all of the time: in celebration, in pain, in joy, in acceptance. And on that note, I’d like to share 30 tips to help you lead an extraordinary life by embracing YOU in all your glory. Get ready to glow, sunshine!
