Day 146/365

I did something unusual today. I let go. I went out with coworkers after work. I had a few (ok, a lot) of drinks. And I stopped holding myself together so tightly. It's been such a stressful few months-- since the beginning of the year really. Usually when "the gang" goes out, it's either during the week or I just feel like I'm not... I don't know. I guess I've always been so awkward around people my age that it's hard for me to imagine fitting in.

When I'm out with them at work dinners and such, I always feel so careful, and so guarded-- trying to be whoever and whatever I'm supposed to be as a 29-year old Corporate Professional... trying to be youthful and interesting, but also interested in our business and goals and protocols.

So today, I just... gave in. I went to the bar. I got drunk. I took shots, I drank beer, I laughed and joked and let down my hair (metaphorically speaking). I stopped worrying about being in control.

And it was great. I had fun. I let loose a little bit. I let people get to know ME a little bit better.

And yes, it was a beautiful thing. To just let. go.
