Today this post is about finding me. I’ve spent most of my life seeking happiness elsewhere. I’ve bounced from one relationship to another over the years. I’ve sought approval and acceptance from others. I have poured myself into my studies and my career. I have bought clothes, jewelry, home decor, and other luxuries that amounted to stuff I hardly or never used and didn’t really need. These actions were taken in the pursuit of happiness and pure life fulfillment. In all of these, I have yet to find what I’ve been looking for. I’ve come to realize that happiness does not lay in anything else but within me.
However, what does that truly mean? I’m going to take the next year to focus on myself to find this answer. I’ll be documenting my journey to truly become the change I want to see in my world. You can follow my chronicles here as I embark on this adventure of living my life with a focus on finding me.
