2017 has been, simultaneously, one of the best and worst years of my life. I have not had many words this year to describe all of my many feelings. While I have continued to write and share, there are so many more thoughts bottled up, compiling in my head, that I cannot seem to get […]
I felt the seasons start to change today. From warm to cold, from sun to clouds. I stepped outside to find leaves crunched beneath my feet. And I thought, how magnificent it is that the world knows just when to go from blue to grey, from green to orange. And that despite our human efforts […]
When you find yourself in a place of light, know that you are allowed to be there, to feel happiness. But don’t forget to cherish that feeling and to bottle it up for when darkness hits. Because light and dark come and go, in their own beauty, with their own purpose. Each teaching us to […]
Is there meant to be more to life than this? I’ve always burdened myself with the thought that my purpose should be to serve others… But each day a new challenge appears, a new endeavor fails, and the problems consume me.
