Today’s Prompt: write about finding something.
Over the past six months, something in me has changed. Not for the bad, but for the better. If you know me personally, you know that I am not a very open person, which is why I decided to start blogging. To give myself a space to just vent and be me.
I started working at the membership desk at another Y in September of 2014 and it has been great. I love it. But I was a little uncomfortable at first because I had to step out of my box. I was forced to talk to complete strangers and be okay with it. This was a challenge for me. I am a not a very social person. I just not, there I said it, and now the whole world knows.
This job has really changed me. I am more comfortable with being around people. I talk to just about everyone…my father complains that I just don’t shut it anymore. I have become much more outgoing. And I love it. I am not that awkward girl anymore. People don’t wonder as much about the strange girl in the corner.
I have found my confidence and my social side of me. The person I think I was always meant to be, and not the weird shy girl the people I went to high school with know. I have found a new me, and I really like her. I am not afraid anymore.
