when i was younger i remember always wanting to be around people. my mom said one of my friends would leave after a sleepover and i would already be asking for the next friend to come over. i guess people have always been my safe space. i always felt bored, depressed or anxious when it was just me alone with my thoughts. i was never good at goodbyes and i hated when the fun came to an end. so imagine my fear when i ended up single and living alone. there were a few days there that the silence was unbearable. i would fill each evening with a social activity so i didn’t have to face it.
and then one day i realized. this IS my reality so i better learn to like it. or even love it.
and i’ve actually seen myself change over the past few months. slowly but surely. here’s a few things that helped…
hi friends. we’ve almost made it through the week again. i’m headed to san diego for a baby shower for one of my college friends tomorrow. so a little reuniting is in order. i watched the jimi hendrix netflix documentary last night and loved it. most of all, i couldn’t take my eyes off of his badass style. i seriously want to go through a jimi inspired fashion phase! floral on floral, flares, fringe, colors. so good.
this week we welcomed erika, a new member to our team and had burgers and cocktails to celebrate. very delicious. what are your plans this weekend? anything fun? i hope it’s a good one! -bri
