Just Some Reflection
I guess this post can be thrown into the mental health side of wellness. It really isn’t a post about particular food or fitness things, but a post with some personal reflection. This Wednesday(May 2) I took my last final exam of my junior year of college. It is crazy for me to think about heading into my senior year. Time is moving way too fast for my liking. I honestly feel like it was yesterday that I was moving into my beloved dorm for my freshmen year and now I am going to be entering my last year of undergrad in a mere 3 months. I’m probably going soft, but the thought of going into my last year of undergrad has brought back memories of the past 3 years here in one of my favorite cities.
Thinking back from my freshmen year to now(and looking through my Facebook albums over this span of time) has reminded me of how much has changed and how much I have grown over these past 3 years. The biggest change over these 3 years that I have noticed in myself is being comfortable in my own skin and being able to do my own thing. I have always been independent and able to doing things on my own, but there is a difference between ‘doing things on your own’ and ‘doing your own thing’. This is where the mental health side of wellness comes in. You have to be your own best friend before you can have a healthy relationship with other people. I used to worry so much about what other people thought and about trying to fit in that I wasn’t able to really be myself. I am not really sure when I decided to stop worrying about what everyone else was doing and what they were thinking and to just do whatever I wanted and felt like doing, but when I did make that change I was much happier.
When you start doing your own thing you begin to find the people in your life that have the same path as you and you are able to cut out those who are just going to slow you down or those who are going to hinder your happiness. The people that are in my life now are some of the most genuine and realist people, and they make my life better just by being a part of it. My life right now is pretty awesome. I am so grateful for the people that are part of my life and for those who were in my life because they have all helped to shape my into the person I am right now as I am writing this, and I am very content with who this person is. Life moves quick and I am not sure why I was so excited to ‘grow up’, but I am loving where I am at and I can not wait to see what the future has in store for me.
Thanks for reading!(and if you are reading this and are/were someone important in my life special thanks to you, I have a lot of love for you people!!)
