Le(Petit)Chat

Le(Petit)Chat I'm on a journey. A journey to discover who I really am. If that even makes any sense. The following are a few things I know for sure. I love my family. I love music. My favorite color is pink. True love is my dream. The thing I want most in life is HAPPINESS. I want to feel content with my life. I'm 26 and I'm still not sure exactly what I want to do in the future. I'm determined to live a full life. This blog will only give you a glimpse into who I am. It is a collection of a few thoughts, pictures/quotes for inspiration, and just things I find cute. So join the fun or not, it's up to you.

"I had a child when I was sixteen. I got kicked out of high school because of all the absences. My family and community pretty much wrote me off. But right away I got a job at a sporting goods store. Soon I was able to get a job as a receptionist at a tax company, and they gave me enough responsibilities that I learned how to do taxes. Eventually I learned enough to become an associate. Then I got offered a job at a smaller company, and even though it was a pay cut, they offered me responsibility over all the books— accounts payable, accounts receivable, everything. It was less money but I wanted that experience so I took the risk. And I’m so glad I did, because six months later, the controller of that company left and I was given that position. They told me they couldn’t officially call me the controller because I didn’t have a college degree. So I finished my degree 5 months ago— just to make it official! So after having a child at sixteen, I made it all the way to controller of a company, without even having a college degree. Can you believe that? Honestly, I’ve been waiting to tell that story so long that I told it to a customer service representative on the phone last week. She was nice about it and pretended to care."

Things I want to tell people, that I wish people had told me:

  • You don’t have to achieve great things by the time you’re 25
  • You have intrinsic value above and beyond your perceived utility to other people and society at large. 
  • You don’t have to have sex, or have sex in any way that you find uncomfortable or unpleasant, to keep anyone’s love or good opinion of you. They didn’t love you or think very well of you to start with if they demand it. 
  • You don’t have to stay with someone who isn’t meeting your emotional or sexual needs because they need you, or you’ve been with them for awhile, or you need to be in a relationship. You need you. Your time is your own and it is finite. 
  • It’s ok to work at a job you enjoy that doesn’t make you miserable even if it’s not a career and it won’t “lead to anything.” 
  • Your life is not a narrative. It is not leading to anything, there is no overarching thesis, it does not have themes beyond the usual shared cultural experiences of your time and place. This is ok. It does not mean that your life is without purpose or meaning. 
  • It’s ok not to like or get along with the vast majority of people you encounter, so long as you afford them the same respect, courtesy and dignity that they afford you. 
  • Expensive is not always better. 
  • Failure is temporary if you’re still alive. 
  • People are both much better and much worse than you’d suspect, but usually not all at once. 
  • Stop thinking of your future self as a different person and it will be easier to prevent money and health problems. 
  • Let people help you, lean on them when you need to, and be available to help, but don’t swing too far in either direction. Try to carry your half of the life basket as evenly as you can. 
  • Set boundaries, and do not be afraid to kick people out of your life who disregard them. You will not end up alone and unloved. People who love you will be ok with your boundaries. 
  • Your power does not come from money or beauty, but from seeing life steadily and wholly, from a curious and thoughtful mind, and from your ability to say no when you want to, and yes when you want to, and I don’t know when you don’t know. 
  • There will be bad times, maybe lots of bad times, but not only bad times. 
  • Love will not heal the wounds in your soul, but love can give you the impetus to begin the work of healing yourself. 
  • Life might be a long series of starting over, and that’s alright. 
  • You’re really cool, you’re really beautiful, you’re really special. Really. Not to everyone, but to a lot of someones sometimes.

The internet is amazing. Endless opportunities, inspiration and information. But it can also be heavy for the mind. You battle not comparing your life to the seemingly amazing lives of others (don’t believe the hype), what people are buying, wearing, their apartments, their body, where they’re going and with whom, trying not to see what your Bf/Gf/exes are liking or who they’re following, your cousin or coworker’s depressing status updates on FB all day, feeling guilty for laughing way too hard at that meme you know was mean as hell 😩, etc.
When was the last time you layed out, took your shoes off and got some sun and fresh air? Just you and your thoughts? Just you and your friends or loved ones? We openly discuss beauty regimens, workouts and smoothies, but what good will those do if your mental health isn’t shown undivided attention too? Don’t forget to disconnect from the lives of others, sometimes. Don’t forget you’re here for a reason, too. Have you started the journey into you, to find out what that is? Don’t forget about YOU. The internet will always be there.
Have a beautiful weekend ❤
