Love the Uncomfortable

"It's good to do uncomfortable things. It's weight training for life" - Anne Lamott

For at least two years I have been very reserved, especially since having Sage. I was going through a rough life transition; I think I was unsure on who I wanted to be. I am still unsure at times; but I think that is apart of "the life journey". Anyway, I made a promise to myself this year to try some uncomfortable things for the sake of love. Love for family, love for work, love for time, love for passions and most of all love for me.

Watering the Soul

I was more creative than articulate growing up. I’ve always been ashamed of it then, not knowing how to express myself verbally to people. Which ultimately affected my early adulthood, it lowered my confidence, self-esteem; to avoid embarrassment I didn’t speak up. And it wasn’t because I was dumb; I was good in other subjects like math and science, I just didn’t know how to put words together. I struggled in reading comprehension, even up until community college. I didn’t understand words, I couldn’t comprehend sentences to try and figure out what I was reading. It was terrible. So you know how bad it was when I had an essay assignment.

My passion was art, and how I can make things beautiful, no matter what it was; painting, drama, theater, dancing, sewing, jewelry and clothing designing, photography or drawing. What ever it was, I was into it. I remember going to summer programs at schools and bypassing the athletic activities, and headed straight for the art room. Where they had everything a girl could dream of. I loved going

Comfortability

I just had to talk about these pajamas from The Gap. Now I've never owned a Pj set. (I am serious) This is my first time wearing one. Growing up, we just wore old clothes to bed, an old t shirt, some tore up shorts and that was considered comfortable. As I got older, I matured and realized it is not cute walking around tattered throughout the day. Part of it was my fiancĂ© begging me to get some decent pajamas, it wasn't attractive, and I can respect his honesty, and if your partner is telling you to "go shopping" then girl, GO! Make yourself comfortable and sexy at home, not just for them but for you.

Almost Mid-Januray

Since moving out here, anxiety has held me back from exploring. I assume it's the foreign environment, literally not knowing where I am or going. Before Sage, the risk of wondering was never a thought in my mind, it was more of an adventure, of possibly catching something beautiful, something unforeseen. Though I feel where we moved is very safe, the way the world is going, I just don't feel right being some where that is unfamiliar and deserted. However, I try to listen to my inner self, and if where I am feels peaceful, I will shoot something. Today, Sage and I took a 5 minute detour from our daily errand, and I am glad we did. We ran into to what seems like a Horse farm of some sort, followed by a private cemetery and some land. It was stunningly foggy out and damp, just perfect.
