The Key to Enjoying Where You Are
As most of you know, I just moved back to Detroit after living in Kent, Ohio for four years and then living in the Washington DC area for a few months. If you’ve had any conversations at all with me in the last three months you know I did not want to be back here in Detroit. It has nothing to do with Detroit being bankrupt or a bad place to live, but it had everything to do with Detroit being a place that I relate to who I was before college. I was not a bad person by any means before college I was just a girl who had a very difficult time disappointing other people or doing anything that was not the status quo. During my time in college I really had the opportunity to grow into myself and figure out who I was. Now, for the last few months there has been this battle between the people pleasing girl and the girl that lives her life with no apologies for being who she is. This battle has been exhausting and I know that it is a struggle that many people my age or in my situation feel.
During the last week I have really come to terms with the fact that I am here in Detroit and that is where I am supposed to be. I embrace it and use the the gifts and talents that acquired while being away to make this place home again. It is extremely easy to see the worst and the negative, but it is also very draining. I have decided to be more creative and open to what Detroit has to offer me.
Rant over- thanks for listening……
