Like I said, I've been working to get my life in a really really good place, even better than before. This means taking a lot more time for myself. I spend a lot of times on helping other people with their lives and tend to ignore my own. This is fine in moderation, because its something that I really enjoy doing, but you can have too much of a good thing. So I started being a little bit more selfish. This doesn't mean hogging my food, alcohol, etc aka not sharing anything. I mean like on nights where people may want me to go out, just staying in and spending time with myself. Let's face it, other people can come and go, but you ain't goin' nowehre. We are stuck with dealing with ourselves our entire life. Better get used to it lol. So that's what I'm doing. I'm getting to know myself all over again. It's fun!
One of my favorite me things to do is go to hot yoga by myself. I tend to switch up between the 4 locations and try to go on random days as to not get the same instructors. This way things stay kind of anonymous, know what I mean? It really is so much more relaxing to know it's just you.
Another thing I've gotten over is always needing my phone. My blackberry was one with me before. I couldn't go anywhere without it and if I did it was all I could think about. I like the idea of having a cell phone, but I don't want to be one of those people who constantly turns to their phone every time they are in an awkward social situation. Currently, I am that person, but I'm working on it okay! LOL. It's so liberating!!!
I'm also doing away with all my ridiculous timelines and expectations for myself. I don't need a boyfriend by any specific time or for any duration. I don't need to do a blog every week because people expect me to. Clearly, there are some things that require time lines, but I'm just saying that the unnecessary ones are being plucked from my life one at a time.
These are the ones I decided on for now. This is quite a bit of work to do, and I'm excited to see myself change. I really think taking small steps and realizing how to become a better person is important. One of my friends told me "If you think about it, you are always in a state of growth or decay. There isn't any flatline." If I can help it, I'm gonna be on a constant growth as long as I can :). The best and most effective way to do that is to take small steps and work your way up. I feel like a new person already :D!
