Hello my curious souls,
I just thought I would give a quick introduction on myself, my name is Hannah and I am 20 years old. I’m currently studying in the U.S. but I am originally from Sydney, Australia. I have been here, in America (on and off) for nearly two years, and in a week, I’m about to move back home to my gorgeous farm. I am excited to catch up with my friends and family…. and of course, my animals.
Something you all should know about me, I am in love with learning more about myself, yes, I know that sounds cheesy and I can guarantee you, this is not the case every day. Some things I have learned about myself, are what you and many other people in society call weaknesses, although I have recently chosen to look at it in a different way. I choose not to use the word weakness but instead replace it with “the opportunity of growth”. Growth is a positive characteristic so tell me how it could be associated with such a negative word such as weak. Highlighting and learning about your “weaknesses”, is something that should not be viewed as a bad thing.
One thing about living by myself in America has taught me, I’m an independent woman. In all honesty, I did not think I could do this, due to the fact how much I depend on my amazing parents, and that dependability I consider as one of my “weaknesses”. Although here I am, happy and content with my life as it is right now. I’m still learning and that journey will never be complete and I can tell you, not every day is rainbows, and a perfect image of me dancing around my room singing along to happy uplifting songs. It’s the days where I am lying in bed lonely and confused, which motivate me to keep learning and discovering more about what I need as an individual, to stay happy and continue growing.
Another aspect which has room for me to grow, is my confidence in myself. I have wanted to start blogging for nearly half a year now. I even created an account 4 months ago, and ended up deleting it as that annoying self-conscience told me society didn’t want to listen, not only to my words but my experiences. It made me nervous and a little uncomfortable, to think about the possibility that anyone could view what I am writing about, and god forbid the people that won’t benefit from this and the people who are going to try to knock me down, which I have learned to accept. There will always be people like that. Although I just have to remember, people who don’t exactly agree and support what I am doing, is not always intended to be malicious, that’s their opinion, therefore I move on. So, here’s the first step in that area of growth. I finally started, I hope you enjoy my journey as much as I do…
