Confident Vulnerability

I Want To Go PlacesSometimes the doubt and sentiment for the past floods in, and I immediately think about what my morning or work day or weekend would be like if I were back in Tallahassee and not a new city. The nostalgia and desire for what is comfortable overcomes me. Then I stop in the middle of this mini-crisis and immediately think, “Stop it, you’re fine.” And I am until the next moment.

Being a touch of bold is put to the test in a new city. I realized it requires confident vulnerability. Each week I offer myself up to criticism at work from coworkers I don’t have a long-established rapport and attempt reaching shelter on what could or could not be a stormy day. I seek the comfort of friendship, while awkwardly attempting to forge new friendships. I open my heart to new romantic interests, while reaffirming I’m not defined by any previous failed attempts. I hope to become adjusted to this new chapter of my life.

“The nature of life is not permanence but flux. Things are changing.” When I embrace that change with confident vulnerability, I’m learning that I’m fine. I’m better than fine. I’m thriving.

  1. I’m confident you’ll do well in your new city, Jarryd! Just keep that same drive you had here and you’ll be fine.
