"A large part of getting organised is learning to act from a place of self-esteem: knowing
what we want and taking care of ourselves...."
I've surprisingly really enjoyed this year of figuring myself out and taking time out to repair. I spent my early 20's hurrying along, doing everything but really not getting much of the important stuff done. I was pretty much forced to stop and reassess this year.
Although I have my moments I do feel that I am finally growing into myself and not doubting any decisions that I make. I trust myself almost completely. There are no voids for shopping to fill. I am warm. And I am nice to people. I make things work. If life has taught me anything, it's to hang on. Because things have a strange way of working out in the end. Somehow.
This year has gone much too fast though. When I headed out to look for a new salad bowl on my nowadays rare trip to the shops last week, I was startled to see a sea of pastel tank tops and 3/4 neon jeans that I am not ready for. But I guess a year taken to reflect and heal may just prove to be the most life changing yet. I really hope so.
