I’ve been doing life with these ladies for the last 6 years and it’s so bittersweet to be leaving them // today we spent the day in Sedona, AZ, swimming, creek walking, wine tasting, singing 90’s music at the top of our lungs, laughing, talking, crying, laughing. It was the best. #sisters

I heard this quote for the first time sometime last year. And I haven’t been able to let it go since. Being right is something that had/has been ingrained into the person that I am for my entire life. For the past 6-9 months I’ve been trying to practice being kind over being right and I had no idea how difficult it would actually be. To be kind means to listen without simultaneously thinking up a response, to be kind means to abandon defensiveness, to be kind means to think of others before thinking of myself and my need to be right. And It sounds so simple but it’s really hard. And I fail at it a lot. But in the times that I haven’t been failing miserably I’ve learned so much. For the first time I’ve not only heard the thoughts and opinions of people who have different world views but I’ve been able to step away from my own and listen to them, understand them, and process them. And I’ve found the person I am, the world view I come from to be so challenged, and even changed in some areas. Being kind, being a better listener helps you see that maybe you aren’t right all of the time either, sometimes I feel like it’s just choosing to be kind over being stupid. Haha.
It’s strange to of been so sure of myself, my beliefs, and my decisions at age 20 and now to be on the verge of being 24 and be questioning so many things, to see the things I value move and change before my eyes, and ultimately to feel like I don’t really know the person I am becoming right now. It’s strange. It’s good, I’m sure it’s good. But it’s strange none the less.
