I cannot believe that I've reached the end of GG Renee's #30Layers30Days Self-Discovery Challenge! It has been an amazing month and I've learned so much about myself along the way. I've also had the privilege to come across some amazing bloggers/writers and I loved reading their entries each day! Be sure to check out the #30Layers30Days hashtag on Twitter to catch up on the entries of others!

At the beginning of the month I shared with you some of the things that I wanted to start, stop and continue in my life. I mentioned that I wanted to start spending more time outside, stop being fearful of going places by myself + stop worrying about why some people can be negative and continue being comfortable in my skin + being open to love.

I've changed a just one month. My birthday was on the 28th so I am now 23 years of age and I just feel different. I've stopped worrying so much and I realize that the more comfortable I am in my skin, the more that I'm able to go different places by myself. I don't have the energy to try to fix every single last negative situation and I realize that sometimes things are much bigger than you or don't require your focus. As far as being open to love? *Smile* Let's just say that the moment I stopped wondering about when I was going to share my love with the love of another is the moment that I met someone who can sit on the phone with me for 3 hours...someone who likes communicating with me and actually feels connected to me.

Life isn't as complicated as I've made it out to be. In fact, I realize that the more that I choose to focus on growth and actually living, the more that the really positive things enter my life when God feels that I'm ready for them. I thought that I was ready before...but now I am OPEN and to me that is greater than being ready for anything.

Thank you for taking this journey with me and I hope that you stay tuned because I have another surprise for you coming up soon! Have a great day!
