Turned All My L’s Into Lessons: An Update

ivyarum

After a much needed break, I’m back and I’m better! It’s only the second week of April and its already been a whirlwind. My car was broken into and so many important things were stolen from me.(also who steals dirty clothes???) I had to deactivate all my cards, hit the dmv for a new license, get my windows fixed and make an appointment to get them tinted.

I know they say to never keep things in plain sight in your vehicle so save that conversation for someone else. What about when you lock things in your trunk + glove compartment but they break into your car and get into those places too? You get got! And boy, they got me.

If we’re being honest though, that incident was something I needed to shake myself out of being complacent. Things could’ve been way worse. Like instead of just breaking into my car, they could’ve STOLEN it. I could’ve gotten hurt (cause apparently they were watching me) but I’m alright!

Which brings me to todays topic: turning these L’s into lessons (shout out to Chance the rapper) My car was broken into at a Planet Fitness. I’ve wanted to cancel my  membership for months now. I felt like I outgrew it. I continued to go even though I was unhappy with the facility because the hassle of canceling my membership made me cringe.  But all it took was a car break-in to change my tune. Clearly this is a sign to move on.

I canceled my membership the next day and now I’m reevaluating every aspect of my life. Where else am I complacent? Settling? Am I spending my energy, time, and money on the things that matter the most to me?  Am I being true to my values?

Like Sway, I don’t have all the answers, but there’s things brewing here. I’m wiping the slate clean and planning to pursue some ambitions I previously thought were too lofty. For the first time, I’m excited about change. I’m glad to be back. (sidenote: ya girl hasn’t found a new home gym as of yet so if you have suggestions I’m all ears.)

Growth, development, and self-discovery are all part of becoming your best-self. Have you ever experienced a loss that steered you back on track?? (and taught you a lesson) Hit me in the comments!
