There’s a lot of words used to describe people. We like generalizations, and sometimes they’re even useful, but sometimes they limit.
Wife, daughter, employee, freelancer, woman, writer, graphic designer, marketing director, blogger, millennial, Ginger, web designer, reader, cook, sister, friend. All of these describe me in one way or another. Unfortunately, they don’t tell you the important things about me.
I crave justice, equality, and stillness. I don’t want to be busy. I want to savor my life. I aspire to be a thoughtful and selfless wife and someday mother. At work, I crave success and sometimes recognition (10 points for honesty, right?). I think being self aware is vital to our own successes, yet we struggle as humans to do so. My motto for life is “when you know better, do better” by Maya Angelou. I read 120 books in 2017. I’ve been married for 3 years and it honestly does get better all the time.
I met my husband at 18 years old and married him when I was 20. I can’t remember a day in my life where I haven’t felt too heavy. I struggle with my weight more than anything else in life. I’m extremely clumsy. I’m a great listener and will generally listen to you talk without interjecting my own life issues. I try really hard to give the person I’m with my undivided attention. My love language is split between quality time and words of affirmation, but I feel loved when my husband takes care of chores around the house without me having to ask too.
I firmly believe that people can’t be classified or judged at any time because it’s impossible to get inside another’s person’s head thoroughly enough. I genuinely enjoy being alone most of the time. I’m an introvert but I can usually function in social settings, however I tend to say silly responses to the things people say to me and later beat myself up over it.
Why am I telling you all of my insecurities? If you’re going to trust me enough to read what I say and develop your own opinion about it, then you should probably know a few things about me. So, that’s me in a post. You’re more than welcome to follow me on social media and find out more.
