My life is on track in this moment of time. I’m grateful and blessed to be where I am today. But lately I’ve been feeling confused. I feel like I’m losing who I am…the real me. It’s a constant battle between resisting change and wanting to change in certain areas to better myself. This past year has brought so many external changes within my life such as graduating with a Bachelor’s degree, moving from Buffalo to San Diego, and starting my first year at naturopathic medical school. They say stepping out of our comfort zone promotes growth, but it’s scary. There are things from my past that I don’t mind tossing and never looking back at, but there are also things that I want to keep with me forever…like my love for fashion and beauty, animals, nutrition, and the outdoors. Sometimes I feel like a walking contradiction because I love the glamorous lifestyle AND the simple, natural things in life as well. Naturopathy is a form of medicine that I agree with wholeheartedly, but can I still pursue this career without comprising my love for looking good and having nice things?
