Accepting myself is one of the hardest things that I have ever had to do. Like many others, I have chosen to wear many different masks in life. I reflected what was appropriate for the situation I was in, or for the group of people I was with. I never reflected anything that I was not, but I often did not reflect all that I was.
I have done well in three different professional fields, yet I still hold on to some level of feeling “not good enough”. One of the strongest tenets in life is that our homes reflect who we are. Sound like I am on a tangent here? That would be far from the truth.
While I have always tried to create a home that reflects who I am, at this stage in my life I feel that I can do this in a stronger, more dynamic way. I have sorted and given away things several times since my move to Nevada four years ago. I feel that I am at a level now that I can sustain, and that I am ready to have my home reflect me in a different way than before.
The new year is showing renewed hope for me.
