So just by using my keen skills of deduction and ability to read the big bold titles, this page is supposed about me, I guess? I never know what to write or say when asked to describe myself. Hi, I’m Caroline. I’m 22 years old, I’m a Gemini and I enjoy long walks on the beach.
In all seriousness, I feel like there’s no way I can just be like “Hey, this is me” and not be weird about it. If you know me, then you know how I am. I guess I can describe the point I’m at right now and some reasoning behind this blog. 2017 has been such a life-changing year so far. I started the year the way I’ve been for a long time – anxious, feeling trapped and hopeless and insufficient. I don’t know what changed but something in me just lit up, like someone flipped the “on” switch. I put myself and my needs first. I stood up for myself. I freed myself from toxic relationships and mindsets that were bringing me down. I felt like I had been in a straight jacket – which I always thought would be nice and cozy and safe feeling, but apparently that’s not a normal thing to think, so… But it does kind of work in this analogy. It felt comfortable and safe, but I still was restrained. I got myself out and felt like I could breathe again. I started doing things for me. I’ve gotten to experience so many things I never would have been able to before. Like this road trip I’m currently on. Bryant and I are spending July 26 – August 9 driving cross-country. That’s one reason I started this blog, to chronicle all of our experiences and adventures. I also have been able to relate these experiences with thoughts and concepts that I’ve been developing in my head. It’s a nice way for me to get all of my thoughts in order. I thought I might share it with you all – maybe you can relate and we can talk about it, maybe you’ll be inspired and find value in it, or maybe you just are really bored and have nothing else to do but check out my posts. Whatever reason that’s brought you to my blog, I’m glad you’re here. Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.
