Just. Be. You.

I feel like my New Year's Eve of dancing the night away on Main Street in Magic Kingdom was the PERFECT way to start 2014. Why? Magic Kingdom. Disney World. Jordan. New friends. PERFECT!  Besides the obvious reasons, it was fun to just be myself. Just 100%. Just dancing even if I looked silly. Just being my genuine-but-sometimes-wacky-self. Making new friends by just being totally me.  It. Felt. So. Good.  So in this first month of the year, I've started noticing that I get so fired up by people who just do what they want - just being themselves - no matter what anyone thinks.  You want to dress like a princess? Do it. Life it too short to not use all the glitter and sequins you desire.  Want to be a cat lady? DO IT. [Just try not to get to the point of hoarding. I really appreciate people who do what they want in a healthy way...]  Want to read Teen Vogue and Seventeen and teen fiction but you're turning 28 in May? Do it. I am.  :) Life is short. You are spectacular. Just

Time lapse.

Picture this. A time lapse video of sorts. One person, centrally located, standing relatively still. The rest of the people moving, moving, moving. Making progress.  I usually feel like the person standing still.  You know what helps feeling like you're not the making the right amount of progress toward the right things at the right times? Not standing still alone.  Y'all, transparency is my favorite thing. Sharing my life and feelings with friends is what helps me get through life. It's refreshing and worth it.  I have a lot to work through and grow in spite of. 2014 is a perfect year to start.  Love, Jessica
