How To Fit Into Yourself

How To Fit Into Yourself

Within the past two months, I’ve traveled back and forth to my hometown for more than six times already. Work, family, relationship, business - all of them have pulled me into their gravity which coincidentally took place in similar territory. Maybe it’s the mild weather and breezy afternoon they have here, or something about the all-sweet-tasted culinary; but I find myself enjoying the city more and more each time. I’ve moved to the capital for 4 years and around, but the city didn’t change as much as I do. Like a newborn, I started to see everything differently. I started to dress up casually, but still within a context of being “me”. I also, started to be able to relax and living the moment more consciously. If there’s a word to describe, it’s probably: Fit. I’m fitting into myself.

The pair of jeans I wore to lunch today, it’s the physical version of being fitted. These are the 711 Skinny series, with mid-rise waistline and stretch fabrics. Unlike other Skinny jeans that are too tight, these fits me just right with an additional room for my ankles and contoured waistband to curve the body. The kind of Skinny that embraces my very human body - imperfect, but valuable. LEVI’s and its Lot 700 series of jeans have been known as the leading of fit - they created the right trend, and I love the way it sticks to my everyday looks - from any daily needs to semi formal ones. It really explains the idea that being fit into your own paradigm can lead to more meaningful encounters: if I’m confident with my style, I can focus on seeing the good in others. If I feel special and enough, I’d embrace others to be the same. If I forgive myself, I’d find reason not to hold grudge against one another.

Here are three things I practice daily, that somehow leads me to fit in: first, I’d surrender. To the traffic or fast routine, to the slow-living and unfamiliarity; I decided to let myself blend in. That way I can see the circumstances better without being defensive. Secondly. I’d challenge myself to see my imperfection as a blessing. By being thankful over everything that becomes part of my personality, I learn to be humble and spend less time worrying about whether I’m already perfect or not. And last, I try to really soaked in the moment. Every second of life that I live, I consciously be at, and feel, the happening things. It helps me understand that every small thing matters, no matter how mundane they could be - the air, the sun, the bees, the cats on the street.

Life is becoming interesting when you’re fitting into yours completely. And once you’re in, you’d feel the support that you need.

Stay connected with yourself!
