I’ve completely fallen behind on this whole blog thing… oops! Let’s try and play catch up, okay?
This past month at school has been amazing. I am in an apartment with my own bathroom. I love my roommates. I love my roommate’s affectionate little boxer. Every week since I have been here has been so much fun. I’ve made new friends and deepened friendships with old friends. I really can’t remember a time that I felt so light weight and carefree. This is the happiest I can remember myself being.
Before I thought Paul was what I needed to be happy, but it turns out he is the one who was pulling me down. Without him, I’m not stressed out anymore. I just go day by day and do as I please.
I think another reason I’ve been so happy lately is because I have stopped saying no. When someone asks me to hang out or do something, even if I’d usually say no, I say yes. I go along with it and put myself out there. We have all heard, “life begins at the end of your comfort zone” and you know what, it’s true. Saying yes and letting out my inner weirdo has been so great. Going to cardio dance, I learn all kinds of new moves. Do I look cool doing them? Hell no. Do I have fun doing them? Oh my GOD, yes! I’m no longer afraid to look stupid when my friends and I go dancing. I let out all my lame moves. Of course, a little liquid courage doesn’t help. I feel like all these factors have also helped boost my confidence. I feel myself getting stronger, more comfortable with myself, I see my body slimming down, I feel better, I’m enjoying life so much more.
Basically, I couldn’t be happier than I am today. Well, maybe if it was a solid 70 degrees out instead of the high 50’s. But besides that, I love it.
Lesson for the Day: Be yourself. Be true to you. Go outside your comfort zone and just live. It’s okay to be silly. It’s okay to let yourself go. That’s how you’ll be happy.
