weighing myself on paper

I freely admit that I’ve had some difficulty realizing my own worth in the past year and I could use a confidence booster every so often. I’m not yet where I want to be in life and I express that quite often. However, two of my sorority sisters from LA coincidently were accepted into a similar program to mine at DU (they’re going to Korbel) and it got me to thinking about my own experience these past 2.5 years in Denver and what I actually have to show for myself. This is where the self-confidence booster comes in. In the past 2.5 years I:

  • Ended a 3.5 year romantic relationship (or, it was ended)
  • Got my first choice internship placement in my first year at the American Red Cross
  • Made new friends in a new city and state
  • Went through an incredibly difficult but much needed time for personal growth & health
  • Decided to independently travel and visit a friend in Kenya
  • Spent 2 months interning in Bosnia and solo traveled for 5 weeks across Eastern Europe
  • Spent time in Washington, DC with one of my besties Jane
  • Secured an independent second year placement at the African Community Center of Denver
  • GRADUATED with my MA at age 25 and with nearly 30 countries in my passport.

throw in a lot of sunshine, smiles, great meals, Rockies games, concerts, wine, all nighters, & netflix and yeah, you could say it’s been a good 2.5 years. maybe even a great 2.5 years :)
