I grew up in a small town with a lot of farms and animals. I wore overalls and loved big trucks. My brothers were my heroes and I tried to be like them. When they became skaters, I wanted to be a skater...I bought the clothes and attempted to ride a board. When my brother went hunting or fishing, I begged to go with them!I loved them so much! I would do anything to be like them.
After I graduated I moved to a small town in Utah and started school. I was super busy with my own new life. I spent many years trying different things...but mostly...trying to find myself.
I didn't have my brothers shadows to jump into and try to take on their formation. I didn't have anybody but me...I changed my mind all the time! I switched majors every year, had a million jobs, dated silly boys and broke off way too many engagements, and couldn't ware the same outfit from year to year because I was constantly looking for my own style. People called me flighty. Or the author of adventure. But really...I was just growing up.
I still don't know a lot about myself or even, who I really am supposed to be. I still change my mind a lot. I can't sit still. And I still am super single:) but...I'm happy. That's what makes life beautiful...because happiness isn't a destination...it's a journey. And you can find bits of peices of happiness everyday to add to your own personal road map! Today, I'm practicing finding joy in the journey...regardless if my life isn't exactly the way I want it to be...happiness is great because we all create our own!
