When I was about 12, I saw this word in a vocab workbook that I had.
“What does dynamic mean?” I asked my teacher.
“Well, in this context, it’s describing a person who is very positive, creative and is full of energy,” Responds the teacher, as they looked over at me.
“Wow! That word describes how I am.” I say, amazed at the new word.
“When I saw the word, I though of you and said to myself, ‘I can see that this is Karen in one word'” They said. Little did they know that on that day, I would consider this word one of my favorite words in the English language.
Even now as a twenty something, I am this way, I’m creative and my creativity has played an integral role in my everyday life. I am always thinking of new, fresh ideas to bring to this blog. It is an invigorating feeling when I write about my experiences and try to relate it to the topic of the moment.
Writing and telling my story are things that I hold at high regard. They are something that can be used as a lesson to not just learn from, but to grow from as well. Every stumble, trip, fall, even faceplants on the journey of life lead us to where we are.
If you think about it, telling our stories are what make us human, they are what drive us to become who we are and motivate us to work towards greatness in the future as successful individuals.
My blog speaks from my heart. With each post, my aim is to inform you about a myriad of topics such as…
- Embracing your most authentic self
- Learning how to effectively articulate your feelings
- Prioritizing your own mental health over obligations
And so much more.
I share parts of my life with you to show you and to give you tools to be better equipped when similar situations arise. However, please keep in mind that I am not a medical professional. I’m a full-time student working towards my communication degree, with the hope of working in the realm of marketing communications. Like I said before, I speak from experience and from the heart.
I see life as a series of twists and turns, but it all boils down to whether or not we choose to share different parts of our lives as a way to make our struggles/triumphs known and talked about on a much larger scale.
I hope my story, as it continues, helps you on your journey of life.
Sending lots of love and light your way,
Karen (A Dynamic Mentality)
