Why I am Afraid to Commit to Anything

Earlier this month I was feeling down. I went to a bookstore for some retail therapy and let my thoughts run off to the far corners of my mind to try and find out what might be missing (sometimes dangerous, sometimes rewarding). I found myself feeling unhappy with where I am in life and like I was still waiting for my life to start (spoiler alert: still feeling this way). Every time someone asks me what I am doing now I always say I am still figuring out what I want to do. It feels like my life is on hold while I wait.

‘Just’ Another Blog Post

Mind vs Shorts – Progress…

Mind vs Shorts – Progress…

I put on shorts for the first time in over a year.

Correction – I put on shorts for the first time in over a year and didn’t cry.

I even managed to successfully venture into a store to try on said shorts without getting too upset to buy them. This may seem like no big deal, but trust me – facing yourself in those awful dressing room mirrors is just about the scariest thing that can happen sometimes.
