If you read part 1 of behind the blogger, lets just jump right into part 2, shall we? I think it’s fun to explain some more of what makes me, me. This is Brittany – raw and unedited.
11. Sometimes I write poetry. I’ve always been way too nervous to post them (I am certainly my own worst critic), but I really love to write it. It makes me happy. With that being said, I may start a poetry series here on the blog and share some of my pieces 🙂
12. I absolutely love to cook! One of my favorite things is making food for people and challenging myself to make different dishes. I almost went to culinary school in the past and I always dreamed of having my own show on the food network like Giada. In my dreams! Ha.
13. I am still confused about my life path. Honestly, I’ve had so many people say that they wish they had their life figured out like me and I laughed out loud. I don’t, at all. Social media can make it seem like people have it all together, but we’re all human. Personally, I have SO many different passions that it’s hard to define what I should be focusing on. Between all of my creative juices (blogging/writing, youtube, podcast), my personal training/coaching, being a mom, and more always has me confused at what my true path should be. Maybe it’s all of it? Who knows. I’m not sure I’ll ever know if what I’m doing is 100% right, but that’s life.
14. I feel like I belong in the mountains. When I first moved to Colorado, I was taken back by the beauty of the mountains. I felt something I had never felt before, I felt like I was home. Whenever I am hiking, I feel most like myself. I am calm, relaxed, happy, excited, and more. So many emotions flow over me and it’s incredible. It reminds me how small I am in this huge world, but it also reminds me that I am capable of anything. I feel my most inspired in the mountains.
15. I am eager to travel the world. While I love being home and I’m certainly a home-body, I love traveling. This past year was the most I have traveled in my entire life, and it was incredible. It was my first time out of the country as well and it reminded me how much of the world I have yet to see. THERE IS SO MUCH TO SEE, SO LITTLE TIME! Some of the top places on my list: Japan, Hawaii, Australia, All of Europe, Greece, and so much more.
16. Some of the best times of my life came from when I stepped outside of my comfort zone. Sounds cliche, but honestly so true. Whether I stepped outside of my comfort zone physically, like moving across country, or emotionally, like letting my walls down and allowing myself to express my emotions, they have always resulted in the best moves of my life. The scariest things I thought I could never do or accomplish, I did, and they changed my life. If you’re afraid to do something, do it. If you fail, you learn from it.
17. One thing I always pride myself on is being extremely honest and loyal. Two of my best traits, in my opinion. I cannot and will not lie, about anything. What I will do, is bottle things inside of me and not say anything – something I’m trying to work on. However, I’ll be honest about anything. I also cannot lie for shit, so there’s that haha. I’m also very loyal, a very Leo quality I have 🙂 I am loyal to my passions, my friends, my boyfriend, family, and anything else you can be faithful to.
18. I thrive on alone time. My introvert nature is definitely to thank for this one. While I do love going out and being with people, I feel more rejuvenated after being alone and sending time with myself. Being around people for too long drain me and makes me anxious. You would never guess if you met me though, as I’m typically pretty outgoing when you do meet me!
19. Make-up is therapeutic to me. I used to never wear make-up, but once I started, I loved learning how to do it and to create different looks. There’s something extremely therapeutic to me about applying the make-up, but I also love how it makes me feel and look.
20. Positivity is extremely important to me, and I am almost always positive. I used to be the complete opposite actually, I would look at everything in a negative light but I didn’t like that energy in myself. If something went wrong, I would have the thought “of course this would happen to me, just my luck”, as an example. Now, I pride myself on always trying to look on the bright side and looking for the good in things, situations, people, etc.
