december 9: challenge. something that really made you grow this year. that made you go to your edge and then some.
i talk about my summer in dc a lot. sorry for the repetitiveness, but it was such an amazing summer and i grew up a lot.
leaving dc was my challenge this year. i had to leave something i absolutely love to come back to a place where i was quite unhappy for a long time. but it’s good for me. i figured out how to be genuinely happy despite less than perfect circumstances. and it’s motivated me to get back to dc for good. i love the district, what i can do there, the dynamic, the freedom i have. most importantly, i love who i am there. working for a think tank was magnificent. i finally have a purpose for my life, a sense of direction.
