Thoughts of the day: Being Gone

     It's almost been 8 months since I left the US for an adventure in order to gain some personal growth... Let me tell you, it hasn't been easy. Technically speaking, I've gone back home to the country that I spent 20 years of my life... yet it doesn't feel truly like home anymore. I find it odd sometimes that though I look like and speak like everyone else, I don't feel like I truly fit in anymore. 

      In the years that I've lived in the US, I've grown. I've adapted to the culture, the way of life. I came when I was in my early 20's, when my ideologies and beliefs where at a crucial point of development. Living in the US truly influenced who I am today and the choices that I make each day. There are things I have a hard time comprehending here in the country that I was born and raised, I tried to change and fight my way into making thing go the way I've been used to in the country I've spent my adulthood in... which led to anger, stress, and lots of breakouts! 

      Nowadays, I try to not stress myself out. I realized that I shouldn't try to change things that has been a part of a culture longer than my lifetime, not to say that I should be totally complacent about everything... It's just that I should pick and choose my battles... As a result, my life here right now is less complicated and I'm not stressed out. 

      I only have 2 months left and I can go back to my life. I can blog more regularly. I've not had anytime at all to do so and I miss it so much, blogging about makeup has been a way for me to relax and one the ways that I have fun!
