Being your best self.
What does that even mean?
I've gotten into running this past year. As I get older I see more and more necessity into investing time into physical fitness just so I can keep up with everything that life throws at you.
I'm not a natural runner. I feel like the top half of my body just isn't quite communicating properly to the bottom half of my body. But I get out there and try to make running a habit.
I'm not quite so advanced when it comes to my mental fitness. I'm still learning to be an effective communicator in regards to this and I still struggle to acknowledge difficulties.
I am also still trying to work out what I am good at and what I want to be good at.
I've always been jealous of people that know what they want to do.
I jump between jobs not really understanding what parts of them I enjoy or what I should double down on. What happens if you aren't very good at what you want to be?
Still, I'm definitely lucky. Lucky that I've probably got more confidence than I should have (white male privilege?) regularly saying "yes" and then working out how to do it.
All this thinking about where I am heading has me really thinking what my best life looks like.
Happiness isn't a location, it is more of a journey.
Maybe living my best life is just getting comfortable with the feeling of being uncomfortable.
