A is for Armour. I'm learning to drop mine just enough to be reachable, approachable. It's a difficult dance between being open and trusting, and wary after having been hurt.
B is for Boho. Free People and Anthropologie are my clothing brand crushes.
C is for Calm.
D is for Duty. How many times have you stayed in a situation far too long only through a sense of duty?
E is Effortless. What do you do that feels effortless?
F is for French, my first love.
G is for (acoustic) Guitar. I wanted to learn when I was 14, then bought one when I was 28 only to realise that I was kidding myself.
H is for Hindsight. This can drift into regret quite often but I'm trying to focus more on the wisdom gained.
I is for Introvert. A bad word in many circles, but it's the cap that fits me. More specifically, the INFJ.
J is for Journalling. I've done this since my teens and find it to be both cathartic and a great way to relive specific periods.
K is Kindness. Almost always taken as a weakness (see armour).
L is Likeable. Are you likeable? Who is drawn to you?
M is for Mother. She taught me to be independent-minded, and to carve my own identity.
N is for No. Saying it sometimes is necessary for healthy boundaries, but you can still be branded a bitch.
O is for Odd one out.
P is for Pizza. :)
Q is for Quiet, which is probably one of the nicer first impressions that people have of me. Being quiet can lead to many different assumptions, which can be unfair sometimes.
R is for Restoration. What have you lost and had restored in a wonderful way?
S is for Shy and Sensitive.
T is for Travel. I've learnt the most about myself through travel, especially when I do it alone.
U is for Used. When have you felt taken for granted, exploited?
V is for Vintage. I'm drawn to old-fashioned, retro things (70s fashion, 90s music, old photos and journals, instant cameras).
W is for Water. I love the sound of it, and would really like it to be a permanent soundtrack to my days.
X... I have no idea! ;)
Y is for Youth. My 30s feel like youth with wisdom.
Z is for Zen.
