The world likes to define us into one little box.
This is what you look like. This is your career. This is what you enjoy, what you hate, what you can't possibly care about. This is who you're friends with. This is how you'll react. This is what your grade should be. This is good enough.
To accept your box is comfortable. It's steady. It's reliable and peaceful and easy. And tbh, there's NOTHING wrong with that. Sometimes that box is perfect, it fits you, you're happy, you don't crave the change, and you succeed. Hey, ygg.
But for others, that box has been there for too long. Maybe it was set upon you and around you and inside of you during middle school, and you've always just accepted it for what it was. Maybe it developed as you developed, and you went through something or did something and all of a sudden you had a box that you couldn't escape. Maybe, you didn't even REALIZE you had a box, but you've been feeling like something's holding you back and you're not quite sure what.
God crafts every inch of our story, and he crafted that box too. If it's meant to stay it will stay. If it's meant to leave it will leave. To live for him means to let him affect that, and trust him with what he chooses to do.
So what are you? What's your box? What has he placed on your heart to do with it?
Not sure? Ask.
HEYO. I'm Chlo.
So the basic gist is I’m really just tired of comparing myself to perfect people on the Internet, when I know for a fact that "perfect" doesn't exist. This here is a snippet of my inner thoughts and tidbits of experience, based on my twenty-something years of good ole fashioned, really really messy life.
My wish is for this blog to serve the small voices inside all of us that might have forgotten what being honest online can look like. Leave the hustle behind you, because this here is about HEART.
