Just a few months ago I felt stuck, like I hadn’t been challenging myself enough. I realized that in order for me to be happy with myself, I had to improve myself. So I slowly started making changes.
I’ve been looking into going back to school, and I’m currently waiting on being accepted to start classes in July. I have a financial plan, as far as what I would like to accomplish by a certain amount of time. I bought my first new car in September of 2016 and I will be finished paying it off in just two more years.
I have been spending more time focusing on my blog, trying to remain consistent and writing about my true feelings and not being afraid to share them with the public. It’s hard to sit there and express yourself knowing that anyone in the world can read your deepest thoughts, fears, and the struggles you go through. But it’s also comforting to put all of me out there, and to not hold anything back anymore.
I’m working on my friendships. Finding the people that are truly inspiring by their positive energy and endless amount of drive to succeed, and trying to be the best friend that I can be to them. Friendship isn’t just a one way street, you have to put in as much effort as you’d hope your friend would. I struggled for a long time with having true friends in my life, and I’m proud to say that I know I have incredible people by my side.
I am trying to be the best big sister that I can possibly be. My siblings deserve nothing but the best, and it’s the most amazing feeling to watch them grow into their own person. It’s scary to realize that not only have I been growing and changing, so have they. My eldest brother is eighteen years old and will be going off to basic training for the United States Army in just a couple months. I just want to be able to spend every single second that I can with them, to cherish their childhood, and create memories that’ll last forever.
I’m changing, I’m working on myself. I’m focusing on becoming more self confident, being comfortable in my own skin. I will always be a work in progress, but I won’t ever let myself get stagnant again. It’s my time to improve.
