Quietly chugging along

For the past few weeks my life has been pretty dang awesome. I was uncertain about my birthday, and the fact that September can usually be a scary month for me (reminders of sad things happen in September). This year though, totally not the case! I've been doing awesome at getting myself out of my comfort zone, meeting new people, reading books that I want, saving for my tattoo, and working on my weight loss!

I've started to realize all the things stressing me in life are just simply not worth it. Most of them are things I can't control, or if I can, I just need to make minor changes, which is fine. I'm all about getting to the place in my life where I'm totally confident in who I am, what I stand for, and unashamed about it. No more is Miss questioning herself! I'm here, I'm bad ass, and that's just how it is.

This is all really showing in my writing. I'm still working on writing more often, but when I do my characters share this edgy persona that I'm emitting myself. I know when I go back to edit this might change some, and they will become their own persons, but for now I'm okay with it.
