I've recently hit a brick wall in my life. A lot of things that were previously taken for granted are no longer so. Making decisions for my future is a constant part of my days. Trying to find what makes me happy is a consistent weight on my person. The peace I can find in these moments, however, is that others in my situation find themselves at the same unfortunate wall. It's a part of your twenties, it's a part of moving on in life, it's a part of growing up. Friendships and relationships will begin and end, paths you assumed you'd be traveling down have suddenly dead ended off a cliff. It's frustrating and stressful.
But there's also something to be said for having these decisions to make, and for having options in life most would dream of having. So this past month, I've been trying to surround myself with people and things that bring positivity and peace into my life. I've been a conscious effort to find music that feeds my soul, to reads books that have become my friends, to spend time making my dog happy, to be there for the people who are there for me.
I've found things to surround myself with that represent a calm in the chaos. Rings and jewelry now on my person are reminders of the peace within me. Calming and encouraging essential oils and himalayan salts are now an integral part of my day. All of these little additions to my life have helped me come to terms with this transition in life and have gotten me excited again for my next chapter. I thought I would share this with any of you who are struggling as well. Find whatever it is that speaks to your soul. Surround yourself with art and happiness and calm. This life doesn't need to be stressful or heavy. It's what you make of it, so why not make it a happy one?
Happy March, everyone!
