Hey guys! Welcome back. I hope you had a great weekend. Today I wanted to share something personal again. My goal is to share a lot more personal posts here that aren’t just life updates and things of that nature. This year I have been working on my personal growth. I have worked on coming out of comfort zone, overcoming the anxiety that I constantly feel, and really working to develop into the person that I want to feel. And I can honestly say that after 22 years of being alive, I finally do feel alive.

I don’t conceal the person that I am nearly as much as I used to. I allow myself to be who I am and I have accepted that, good and bad, this is who I am. I have given myself the freedom to discover who I am and what that means. I have figured out what I want to do in the long run and how I can be used as a light in this world. I have decided that God made me the way that I am for a reason and I should not try to hide that.

In the past I stayed in my bubble. I mean they call it a “comfort zone” for a reason. I remained in my comfort zone because I am a creature of habit. But I have learned that staying in my comfort zone has done my no good. I have not been able to grow or overcome the anxiety that I have because all of my anxiety is coming from my comfort zone. So this year I grew to overcome my boundaries and really try new things.

I give myself permission to be spontaneous and say “yes” more often. I allow myself to push past the fear and work to open myself up to new opportunities and experiences. I have made new friends and I want to really live life in the best way possible. I don’t want to remain closed off and lonely because I don’t have to be. So I started opening myself up to all of the possibilities. I am not going to hold back because that prevents me from really feeling alive.

I have started creating more meaningful goals for myself. These goals will push me beyond my wildest dreams and help me gain traction in this new life. I have allowed myself to really work towards these goals and remind myself that I more than capable. It hasn’t been easy or perfect, but I make a little progress everyday.

I have worked to make time for the people who matter the most. I have also figured out which people matter the most. I have learned that not everyone deserves to be in my life and I shouldn’t keep them around if they only wish to hurt me. At this point in my life I am very selective of the people I allow to stick around. I have learned to make myself a priority and do what is best for me regardless of how it might upset other people. I never wish to hurt anyone, but sometimes it might happen.

It’s 2019 and I finally feel alive. I finally feel like I am myself. And I am so grateful. So far in 2019 I found my purpose AND my person. So as of right now, it’s shaping up to be a pretty great year. So I’m thankful for the opportunities to do both and I am sure more good is coming in the following months.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this. Please like it if you did. Let me know in the comments if you have also grown this year and share a little story if you would like. Don’t forget to follow before you leave if you have not already and I hope to see you next time!
