Who am I?
I’m just a silly girl trying to figure out what I’m all “About”. In this big, big world, the only constant that exists is change; that includes ME! I can’t tell you exactly who I am because I’m uncertain myself. I’m still learning and growing and I hope I never cease down this journey. What I can say however is this:
I’m a perfectionist (this is one of my worst qualities, no doubt), an introvert, I love reading about personal transformation and growth, I have a BA in Psychology and just finished an MS in Mental Health Counseling (YAY!!), I’m a total nerd and totally fascinated with psychology and neuroscience, I love fashion and online shopping (I spend hours buying crap on eBay), traveling is truly one of my passions (but I detest flying), I love bracelets, vintage items and unique accessories, my girlfriends in Chicago, CHICAGO, dessert, Thai food, Persian food, photography, good conversation, T.V. (No, I’m not ashamed, T.V. is the best!), abbreviating words and laughing loudly and often. The more I work on self-awareness and increasing my consciousness of my thoughts, emotions, and perspectives, the more beauty I see in this world, and myself, and the more I want out of this life.
A good friend of mine wrote in my birthday card, “Thank you for being as odd and quirky as myself, -there is no one I’d rather share that kind of inappropriate and erratic behavior with”….I think this sums it up quite well.
What’s this blog about?
A huge reason I’ve started this blog is to challenge myself throughout this journey of life to be authentic and true. For me, that means following my head less, and following my heart more. I plan to write authentically, and “with an open heart”. This is going to be a challenge FOR SURE, but I believe the reward will be greater. My posts will vary, but I plan to write about self-awareness, mindfulness, living a life with purpose, personal growth and transformation, personal challenges, being authentic, acceptance, psychology, positivity, seeing the beauty in life each day, things that make me happy, and simply being true (whatever that may mean). I will also share inspirational photos, words, and poetry.
