What Was I Thinking?

Becoming

There is a lot happening already in 2018. 

This is my year of going back to basics and learning things I should’ve learned years ago.

Since my dream of going back to school and finally finishing a degree is now a thing of the past, this is the year of moving on. This is my year of teaching myself.

This is also my year of unabashedly learning everything that I possibly can from everybody around me.

This year, I will work on allowing what I know to shape who I am and how I interact with the world. And I will learn new things to fill in the gaps, and become the person that I want to be.

2018 is my year of becoming me.

One day I will speak freely. I’ll be less afraid, and measured outside of my poems and lyrics and art. One day I will be faith-filled. I’ll be trusting and spacious, authentic and grounded and whole.
