Singer and actress Selena Gomez has found herself immersed in the spotlight of stardom from an early age. Yet now, the 26-year-old says it’s time to live differently than she has ever lived before.
“I think everything in my life is being majorly downsized, in a very good way,” says Gomez in a brand new interview with Elle Magazine. “I’m going back to simplicity. That’s always who I’ve been. It’s not me saying, ‘I feel the best I’ve ever felt,’” she continues. “It’s me saying, ‘I’m exactly where I am. And I’m so happy I’m in this place.’ It’s a lot of self-discovery. From 20 to 26? Oh my gosh. I feel like a totally different person.”
Calling Los Angeles as a ‘claustrophobic’ place for her, Gomez has sold a number of her properties in California, but she has also taken a job as an intern at a local non-profit.
“It’s peaceful,” she says. “It’s weird. The moment I turned 26, I felt 26. Right now I feel very sure of where I am. I don’t feel erratic or emotionally unstable. Or like I can’t handle my emotions, like I used to. It’s kind of understanding myself a little more. By all means I don’t have myself figured out. But it feels good.”
So who out there wishes they could do what Gomez has done? Who is looking to simplify their own life? Who is looking to getting to know their spirit once again?
Maybe this is your sign to do it…today.
