Figuring out where to go and listening to our inner selves
This past year, I think I have gotten to know myself better.
It feels refreshing to be fully aware of the things I love and things I'd rather not go into, to know where my boundaries are, and to know which things I'd like to try out, either soon or in the far future.
The future doesn't seem as intimidating to me now as it was when I was younger. Sure, it's still a vast unknown, but I find myself looking at it in anticipation more than fear. I know the future's coming. I just need to prepare myself for it now. And it's also up to me how I want to face this future.
It's not as daunting anymore for me to say, "my future is in my hands." I have a better understanding and appreciation of this now. It's a bit scary to have this kind of responsibility, but it also feels empowering.
I also see where I feel like I am lacking, and where I would need improvement to become a better version of myself.
