There are so many different things I could write about right now. Words that could describe my life right now? Wondering, overwhelmed, and happy.
Wondering. Because I'm trying to figure out what I should be doing right now. My current job has me burnt out and I'm ready to grow my skills and knowledge about different things. I know that I love to take-care of others, I love the outdoors, and I love things that aren't mundane. Things I'm considering? Nanny, milker (at a local dairy farm), or college student.
Overwhelmed. Because for the longest time, I did not want to face reality. I didn't want to face the fact that I have to leave my comfort zone for the working world. I didn't want to face the fact that I'm growing up and therefore have more responsibility. I didn't want to face the fact that I have to grow and change.....I can't stay a girl forever. I'm a woman now. I've spent this last year trying to move forwards while still standing in the same place I've always stood. I didn't want to let go and grow.
Happy. Because I finally realize that growing up is a good thing. That stepping out of my comfort zone is a wonderful adventure (even if it's a little embarrassing). Happy because after a year of depriving myself of growing my mind, I finally crave something new. Happy because I can have fun in this crazy life that previously I was so afraid of and didn't allow myself to accept.
Time for this radical introvert to hit the open road.
St. Therese, pray for us!
