Recently, I have started to reflect on how I have changed and grown over the past year. Whether the changes are good or bad, I have yet to decide. I think of who I was and who I am now, and they are two vastly different people.
I like to do a lot of things on my own. I guess I have always been that way due to my introverted tendencies, but I am pretty content with being alone. Now, there are days where I do feel lonely or isolated in this world, but I think that it’s part of changing and growing. However, I feel most like myself when creating content for my blog, reading a good book, or doing the most mundane tasks.
I have made my health a priority and well-being one of my priorities. Throughout college, I rarely worked out and took care of myself. I was always one of those people that would say, “I’ll start Monday” or “This is my cheat day.” Since the start of 2021, I have been consistently working out and maintaining healthy eating to the best of my ability. I fall off the wagon from time to time, but nowhere near as much as I used to.
There are also little things about me that changed. I never used to read for fun; I thought school had ruined that forever. Now I always love to end my night reading. I am more aware of what is going on around me. I know my likes and my dislikes and who I want to surround myself with.
I often find myself thinking about who I would be like if this past year hadn’t happened. Would I still have made the changes to be who I am today? Would I be farther ahead in my goals? Would I be happier?
I will never know the answers to my questions. If I sit here and think of my what if’s I’ll just spiral. I have yet to determine the cause of my changes and my growth, but I am excited to see where my life journey takes me.
Thanks for reading!
