I'm really not sure what it is these days... If it is me getting older or being a stay at home mompreneur or the pandemic, but I choose comfort in my life no matter what. Yes there are times when I have to be a little uncomfortable to get to where I'm going but on a daily basis I choose comfort. That is just the space my mind and body wants to be in. From my home to my hairstyle I choose comfort.
Comfort is a state of physical ease and freedom from pain or constraint. I am making sure I focus on my comfort by listening to my body and making decisions that I'm comfortable with. As I open my closet door I have so many pairs of shoes and jeans but I always go for my most comfortable pair of shoes and pants. I don't want anything tight on my body. I'm not interested in hairstyles that pull and tug my brain. I even quit drinking coffee because of how uncomfortable it made my stomach feel. I love coffee by the way but it was an easy choice.
I no longer want to be in places or spaces with people that I am not comfortable with. I'm not interested in doing the things that I don't want to do or if it's causing me pain or harm mentally or physically I want no parts of it. I'm allowing myself to be free of all the burdens and have to do's of this world and it has been very liberating and fulfilling.
As for my home, I have taken years to really work on my home and make it the space I am most comfortable in. I don't invite people over who are going to stress me out. There is no other place I would rather be than my home. I hope everyone can get to a point in their life when they can feel so free. I am not necessarily tied down to anything or anyone. I have the absolute freedom of doing life how I choose to each and everyday. I don't allow things that once consumed me to put constraints on my life anymore.
God has blessed me in so many ways and I feel like all of my goals and dreams have been attained so far and I find myself wondering what is next but not really worried about there being a next because my now is where I want to be and I am comfortable being here for as long as I can be. Don't get me wrong I have my responsibilities as a wife, mom and a boss but all of those are things that I choose. Life isn't always butterflies and rainbows but I'm comfortable in the chaos, I'm comfortable in the unknown. It has definitely been a journey to get here and I never thought I could be this chill and somewhat carefree but it feels good and I want to continue to make it feel even better. We are all just dust in the wind and I choose to be comfortable in the skin I am in and with the life that I chose.
Only God knows what's really next. I will enjoy my freedom and ease on down this road of life and stop to take in the view and feel the sun on my skin, and dance in the rain because I don't care about getting my hair wet, and be thankful every step of the way.
