It’s Just Who I Am

Thought of the Day: “There’s something liberating about not pretending. Dare to embarrass yourself. Risk.”–Drew Barrymore

Sometimes I feel like I am barricaded into the image of being a 25-year-old professional who maybe slightly more mature than the next. Because, when I want to be a regular 25-year-old, It’s like a sin or crucify me if I make a mistake–SINGULAR.

I get it for others. Most of my constituents, associates, and friends via their job have to be a certain way without expressing their personal feelings too much. I just don’t think I can do that. It’ apart of the reason why I created my own job. I need people to see ME, and not rob me from the general human experience. The one I get to tailor to my liking. I get upset, frustrated, fall in and out of love, want to stand for something, cry, laugh, curse, yell out-of-order, accuse falsely, and apologize etc. I am not exempt, nor super human – although some people have made me feel that way here and there.

Sometimes I eat strawberry waffles for dinner. I don’t have to cook a full course meal to feel like a responsible adult or womanly enough to hook a man. Sometimes I have a beer for breakfast! That and a buttered cinnamon toast. lol *I’m laughing smh But it’s like, can I live?

I have a post drafted about it and I can’t wait to help other people, mainly women and girls, feel more comfortable with being slightly different. If not completely different. It’s okay! We don’t have to conform to an image or what’s said to be a “Woman” or a “Man”. It’s like, well damn, I was born a woman..is that not good enough?!

When do you ever become an adult? What classifies you as an adult? Are mistakes or sometimes being a little irrational not okay? Are we not human? Are we barricading ourselves, or each other?

I’m not trying to be something that already exist. The fact that I exist is perfect enough. I like waffles. So much that I have them for lunch and dinner all in one day, and that is okay.

So what?

I’m young. I like to discuss and debate serious issues, but I also like less serious issues and dancing with strangers at a bar. You gotta balance out the universe some way. 🙂

My life is my own and I would like to live and experience every level and season of growth there is. Let me be 25 so I’m not trying to be 25 at 35.

Living a happy, successful life filled with true love comes with a set of others things that you are allowed to express/feel. Balance. That’s perfection. Vulnerability.

Invite me in, but don’t offer me to stay…because I won’t. I have a lifetime that I intend to live. Either you’re coming along, or I’ll see you soon? Maybe… #sharemyworld

I just wanna be ME and I encourage you to do the same.

Last shot of the day on #MarieTV. I haven't had a Run DMC shirt, leather pants and gold hoops on in years. #whythehecknot?!?!

  1. I loved reading this post! Such a great reminder that I think all of us need from time to time. I’d be lying if I said I’ve never had waffles for breakfast, haha. Also, that gif of Taylor Swift dancing is the best!

    1. Thank you so much! A reminder that’s needed indeed!
