A month ago, I got a bracelet from my boyfriend and it said: "explore". My first thoughts on it were okay we have been everywhere in the past 9 months of being together. That’s cute because we always “exploring” something. Then I got to thinking ... explore means to travel in or through in order to learn about or familiarize oneself with it. We have been doing that ever since we met each other on October 29, 2016.
When you are exploring someone, you tend to make your own roadmap. Once you have your roadmap, you find yourself searching for more things to learn about that person. You want to know everything about them. What makes them mad, happy, sad. How the small things can make them happy.
BUT you have to know how to be happy before you can make somebody else happy. I found myself this morning noticing that I haven't taken the time out to know myself anymore. I've been so caught up in the world that I've been neglecting myself and not keeping myself healthy. With that, I am now finding my new roadmap and exploring who I once was and who I want to be within the next couple of months. Change happens and life comes at you hard every day, but it is up to you if you are going to fall into the trap that keeps you down or look at the trap and find a way out!
I challenge you and myself to become better than who you were yesterday! Make each day count! So what today didn't start off how you wanted it to or didn't end so well. Reflect on what happened and make changes for the better. Change comes from within! So, if you want to see a change you have to make it happen! Don't blame anybody but yourself if you cannot change. Remember change doesn't happen overnight either it takes time.
So explore yourself because once we know who we are intended to be then we will be free!
