Down to Earth

Trees on a mountain

First things first: I made it to 10,074 steps today… Yay! Second, it’s just weird out there. I took my mom to the store today and—after zigzagging through the aisles for what felt like hours—I realized that making “healthy food choices” will be MUCH harder than I anticipated. Why?

I do that sometimes. In time it will all make sense. The main thing I want to do is properly categorize. I hope to […]

Awkward Growth

“The tiny seed knew that in order to grow, it needed to be dropped in dirt, covered in darkness, struggle to reach the light.”  -Sandra Kring I’m not quite sure why I’ve been leaning towards pink and purple lately. I think it’s because I’ve been feeling hurt and angry, and I wanted to calm myself. […]

Feeling Unruffled

Be kind to yourself while blooming. I know sometimes it feels like your soul doesn’t always fit. It’s all a part of the process.
