Lately, I’ve been feeling so happy and passionate about my life and I think summer has a lot to do with it. Summer brings out so many positive emotions in me and the vitamin D my body is receiving is bringing me so much happiness.
This summer so far I’ve spent my time with friends, coworkers and random, wonderful people. I’ve done things like float down a river, go to a country music festival, celebrated my 21st birthday and so much more.
I was worried this summer wouldn’t even compare to last and I’m starting to think I’m having more fun this summer than I did last summer AND I WAS IN ENGLAND LAST SUMMER (what??!)
I can’t stop thinking about how in love I am with the city I’m living in, how much I love the people I’m constantly surrounded by and the work I’m doing. Maya Angelou wasn’t lying when she said, “Success is liking yourself, liking what you do and how you do it.”
I’ve found my confidence growing a lot this summer. If you’ve been following me for a while, you’d know I once wrote about shaky confidence on my other blog, Lost&Found (see post here). I’ve been finding that if you allow people to love you, you’ll love yourself. However, the more you love yourself, the more it allows others to love you. I’ve made some of my best friends this summer and they’ve really brought my happiness/confidence to a whole new level.
This summer I’ve also began a couple projects that I’m incredibly excited about. I’ve been writing a bit more and thinking up some new story ideas and I have one in the works right now that I cannot wait for. Yet, the thing I’m most excited for is the song I’ve been writing. I started it randomly one night and haven’t been able to stop working on it. Hopefully it turns out well and I can feel confident in sharing it on youtube or something.
I read something the other day that said to not hold back and that’s what I plan to do from here on out. I hold back a lot because I’m scared of what people will think. I’m scared of rejection and I’m terrified of failure, but I never know when something will slip out of my reach, but I can be certain that once it does I’ll regret not grasping the moments I could have. Please read this, it could change your perspective on how you approach situations too:
I hope everyone is loving their summer, their jobs and their life as much as I am right now. As always, thanks for reading.
