I can't say I love it. I won't say I hate it. However, oddly enough I am enjoying getting to know myself and see how I truly operate as an independent woman. I am currently re-evaluating who I am as a person and who I will become. Either way, I'm excited to see what this new phase in my life will bring and how it will alter my perspective on the world. I live by the saying, all things happen for a reason. I am sure that God planted this experience in my life to ensure I had a solid hold of who I am without the influences of my comfort zone.
It matters not how old or young you are, whether you live alone or with family, a roomate or a significant other, calling yourself an independent woman is being deeply rooted in who you are as an individual. Considering independent means doing something alone and the word individual is that one person, allow the words to be used interchangeably. Its loving yourself, flaws and all, lack there of and over abundance of, crooked teeth, blemishes and scars. Additionally, it's having goals in life and living to fulfil those goals. It's accepting that settling is unacceptable; that mediocre is non-existent; and that excellency is required.
With this God-given time, there are a few things I am planning to fine tune about myself! I love my personality: I'm witty, sarcastic, compassionate and frank! Therefore, nothing there will be changed! Sorry, darlings! However, I'd like to figure out my 30~flirty~signature~style and my purpose in life! A good friend told me that fashion is here today and gone tomorrow; whereas style is forever...A 60 year old in fishnet is not cute...so..instead of filling my closet with fashionable pieces I'll seek out more stylish items! My purpose in life...that can't be summed up in a one liner, more like a few HUNDRED posts!
When's the last time you re-evaluated who you are? What were your revelations?
