Things I am growing in since turning 25…part 5

  • Connecting with my pain and understanding past hurts, helps drive my hustle

I used to hate getting hurt – I still do…but less so. With every emotional and physical battle I find myself fighting I now know I am learning a little more about myself and taking on a quality in me that causes strife and division. It can be a good or bad trait, either way I am building and developing that increased self-awareness. Self-awareness is incredibly powerful. In fact I believe there is little stronger than knowing who you are. As a Christian I believe that knowing who you are in God sets you up to live an exciting, challenging and fulfilling life. When God reveals Himself to you and in turn you learn more about yourself, something amazing happens. It is almost as if you finally wake up. Because I am sure you know there is a difference between surviving and living.

About Plantain Periodicals

Hello! Welcome to the Plantain Periodicals blogs. The name stems from the kitchen moments I had with my friends at university cooking plantain and planning our lives together. I have used this space as a window into my mind and the way I make sense of all my experiences through writing.This is where I share those conversations and moments that happen inside my head as a young woman growing up in 21st century London. Hopefully you'll be entertained and also learn a thing or two. My main blog ad: www.nissiknows.wordpress.com My literature blog: www.plantainperiodicals.wordpress.com NMx
