When I went away I became really fixated on the notion of personal development to the point where I was obsessing over the last five years of my life. I constantly questioned whether I had done all I could have to be the best possible version of myself. The answer to all of that soul-searching was a painful and resounding 'no'. There is, and always will be more work to be done. But I'm grateful for that because it means I have so much more to look forward to in my lifetime and that the sun has not set. I have new adventures, stories to acquire and opportunities to seize. Then I had a really great one-on-one conversation around the bonfire reaffirming the importance of these same ideas. So for the past three weeks I have been stewing over how to improve one's self and am happy to say that I have been watching a lot less television lately and deleted some of the annoying apps off my phone. I feel better for it but I am still brooding about all this stuff hence the very angry, middle-school girl vibes and moodboard.
