On Becoming

*

The best way I can sum up these girls is as my soul sisters. These girls make me laugh until I cry, put up with me no matter what, show me what it's all really about. We had a sleepover last night and three of us found ourselves talking for an hour and a half about everything. It was the kind of conversation where you learn things about not only the others, but about yourself too. Things that you never noticed before. The kind that reminds you that people are people. That we're all learning, and growing, and becoming.

I was listening to a Hank Green and Emma Blackery podcast earlier in which Emma talked about the importance of our regrets in that they are what make it clear that we've grown. She talked about the importance of being a better person every single day. And that really resonated with me, especially after the conversation with my friends last night. So now I want to put it into practice; to better myself in all parts of my life.

I've been a bit all over the place over the past few weeks. Not unhappy per se, yet not entirely myself either. But reminiscing with these girls about how far we've all come and looking to who we're becoming and what it really means to grow was the wake up call I'd been waiting for. One that brought me back here to write, and to reflect, and to grow.
