on maturity

as per usual, i’m running in a hundred directions and not blogging regularly yet again. i’m not here to ride the busy train because i know we’re ALL busy so it’s not really an excuse. i’ve got a couple diy projects i’d like to share but i want to devote some time to the photos/details about my little projects.
i’m still here and waiting eagerly for summer. sun’s out, guns out right?

one diy project you can eat, and the other you use to bathe! so stay tuned for that :)

also, in a totally awkward segue. . .i’ve been really taken lately by little bits of text. these aren’t exactly conspicuous affirmations, but thoughtful prose that i see around the web or hear on podcasts during my commute. this one struck me as one i thought i’d share with you. perhaps you are going through a difficult or reflective time in your life journey and this will solidify your doubts as a natural part of the process. bolded emphasis mine…

Listen to your being. It is continuously giving you hints; it is a still, small voice. It does not shout at you, that is true. And if you are a little silent you will start feeling your way. Be the person you are. Never try to be another, and you will become mature. Maturity is accepting the responsibility of being oneself, whatsoever the cost. Risking all to be oneself, that’s what maturity is all about.”

    I love that idea and the older I’ve become, the more I have been trying to tell myself to just be okay being me, but it’s easy to get off track or like how someone else does things and want to do it their way. :)

    I love Osho. I also agree that I’ve definitely become more comfortable in my own skin as I’ve gotten older and am way more confident in my own strengths (and aware of my weaknesses) and how to make them work for me rather than trying to be someone I’m not.

    love that! thank you for sharing. It hopes for us as we turn another year older ;)
