“You’ll learn, as you get older, that rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it.”- Mandy Hale
My decision to stay in Florida was mainly to try to find myself and discover what I want in life. At first I wasn’t really sure about the decision. Especially when I first started. I left what I was used to for over a half a year to have a fresh start. It was like a baby bird being kicked out of the comfort of it’s nest.This decision seemed horrible at first, but I can without a doubt say now it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I can’t tell you all how great it has been getting to know myself better without the impact of others criticizing my every move or telling me how I have to live my life. Already in just this little time I’ve gotten to know more of what I want to do with my future, have worked on changing my old negative behaviors, got to know more of my interests, and have had the chance to grow as a person.
It blows my mind how it has only been a month, but yet I have already learned so much! I’m so excited to continue living down here and continuing my journey in self-discovery. It’s like I’m not only discovering myself, but I’m also becoming the best friend I’ve always needed. When you don’t really have anyone else to rely on you really have to learn to work with yourself.
Being on your own also makes you grateful for those you do have in your life. I tell those I’m close to more how I appreciate them and remind them I love them. It has also helped my spiritual journey. I honestly feel closer to God then I’ve felt in a long time.
I encourage all of you reading this. Get to know you. Take a chance to be your own best friend. Find your interests. Find your passions. Just take a chance to find you! You are worth it!
Write to you all tomorrow,
