Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: Hey! I’m nat i live in California just recently moved from the bay closer to Southern California, I enjoy things like clothing, books, movies, and art. I love animals and one day would like to own a cat and move somewhere where it rains alot and is cold. My dream is to be the truest version of myself and live freely without the judgement or expectations of others.
What Inspires You Every day? : I would say myself lol as corny as it may sound, I remind myself that I’ve pulled through all those tough times and that I can still push myself further and don’t have to watch it all crumble as hopeless as it may seem. Progress doesn’t happen right away, It all takes steps and you have to have the patience and perseverance for it to happen.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: I wouldn’t say I live by any words of wisdom, I do say one thing constantly to myself though, “it’s gonna be okay, this will pass soon.” I mainly use this affirmation because it helps alot in times where things may seem so permanent like it’s never gonna be over or change but you just have to remember that this will pass and this moment isn’t gonna last forever because just like that last bad moment passed and you got through it, so will this one.
What is your ultimate goal in life? : I think my ultimate life goal is to just be my happiest most honest version of myself. I want to be free from the judgement of others and live by my own expectations and goals so I can be my most truest form I possibly can be and be happy, because I am most happiest being myself.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : Wow I don’t even know where to start haha, this pandemic has changed me as a whole and flipped my life upside down, Most of the major changes that have happened in my life have happened during this pandemic. For the better and worse, I had alot of physical and mental health issues going on not only to myself but to the people I loved and cared for. It was a really tough time in my life and honestly I have no idea how much my life has improved since then but I’m glad to be surrounded by such amazing people in my life.
What is a message you would like to give others? : No matter how hard life may seem don’t give up, your life is worth fighting for and this period of struggling won’t last forever. After the storm comes the rainbow, and everything happens for a reason. All your life experiences have shaped you into the person you are today and will continue to do so, don’t give up I promise it gets better and soon you’ll be so happy the good moments will out weigh the bad ones.
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: This is just the beginning because we all start somewhere and lead different journeys, but this is mine. I love being able to share my life with the world in the happy and sad moments and being able to interact with you all and just talk makes me beyond happy, it’s all I could ever ask for.
