you’re never too much

June 2, 2017


we’re all going to always be “too much” of something to some people. for me, i’ve been known to be too sensitive, worry too much, care too much (about others & what they think of me), sleep too much, am too emotional, overthink too much, say sorry too often & am too hard on myself. but that is me. it always has been & always will be. and today i’ve decided i’m done apologizing. i’m done trying to change myself.


because at the end of the day i am all i have. and if i’m not happy with that, then i’m not happy at all. yes, i need extra reassurance from time to time. yes, i get upset when i see others down. yes, my heart hurts sometimes from all the love i have for others & the love i seek in return. yes, i have days where i can’t get out of bed because i don’t want to handle this messy world we live in. and if this is too much for you, just know i’m not changing anytime soon. you’re free to go or free to love. because we’re all going to be too much of something and instead of being ashamed of it, we need to be proud of it & use it for leverage to grow & learn & love. use our superpowers for good. last off, find a few people that you can go to when the critic takes the front seat and help remind you of all the good you bring into this messy world.

My name is Lauren and I am yogi and marketing specialist in my mid-20s living in KC after spending a few years finding myself in SF. I love laughing, teaching, learning, Broad City & Workaholics (I tend to clump them together), cooking, trying new things (sounds cliché, but it's true!), writing, art of any kind, growing, bending (my mind and my body), and most importantly, my friends and family. I created The Loving Lotus as a space for me to unwind and share basically all of the above. I am so happy you made it here and would love to hear your thoughts on my page or just talk over a glass of wine or coffee. Feel free to contact me about either. Or both. 🙂
