Wanderlust

Today I: want to share a definition that completely resonated with me. So much so that I immediately felt lighter once I read it, then I re-read it, and read it again. It feels like the answer and the reason why I have been on this mission to grow and become myself again after struggling through a long period of depression.

Right now, I am feeling everything again. I am trying to practice mindfulness, even though I know I don’t always succeed. I am allowing myself to make mistakes, because that is how I will learn. These things are a constant struggle for me, but I know that with these struggles, I will get stronger, and maybe some day these problems I’m facing now will dissipate and I’ll have a whole host of new problems! I can only hope that is the case because I want to forever be growing and expanding myself.

I want to understand my very existence and I want to experience my life with every breath I take. Here’s to continuing on this difficult path!

 

Tomorrow is officially my Friday this week thanks to several cancelled classes, so I am saying HELLO WEEKEND!

To everyone else, happy hump day! What are you doing to get you through this week?

 

Love,

Hi! It’s me!

Today I’m happy about: feeling like myself again! Dealing with depression and anxiety takes it’s toll not only on you but on the people surrounding you who love and care about you. Although I know change doesn’t happen overnight, I am so grateful to finally be on a path to improvement. The air feels fresher when I walk outside, the work I have to do feels less difficult, and I am re-discovering my passion for music and learning in a way I had not felt for a while. Not to sound like a cheesy infomercial on late-night TV, but I really feel like I’m living again after having been in a dark cloud for a long time.

I hope you are all having a beautiful and enjoyable Friday!

Love,

Cambridge friends and a truth

Today unhappy about: making new friends in Cambridge. I had a great time getting to know a couple girls who are also going to school in Boston, and I’m so happy we had a chance to meet up. I followed our lovely coffee date with finally purchasing my rain boots for the winter months that are fast approaching and the most cramped 30 minutes I’ve ever spent in a Trader Joe’s- props to all the employees stocking shelves while we were all lumbering around trying to find everything we wanted!

The future looks bright and tomorrow will be a great day, latching onto this positivity because I’ve been feeling a bit down this week despite trying to avoid that. It’s not easy but there are some real steps I’m planning on taking this coming week to sort out the way I’ve been feeling. I really believe you need to love and accept yourself before anyone else can even have a chance to feel the same way about you, so I am holding on to who I know I am for dear life and hoping that will be enough.

Happy Saturday folks!

Love,
