Timing is a weird thing and I noticed it again recently. We can sit and wait and wonder all the while losing sight of all the things that are working, have worked, and signs that are right next to you but you choose to ignore because they aren't the "ones you want."

Unique Observer

During my meditation this morning it really started to make sense. Who is the observer of your thoughts? You-no one else! This offers a unique opportunity to understand what the word observe means and how that offers a liberating sense of non commitment. "Observe:" to notice or perceive something. Does this say "to attach to … Continue reading Unique Observer

When You Just Do It

For about a year I have talked about wanting to go to one specific place. For what reason? I have no idea but that, in itself, makes me too curious not to go.

We All Struggle

The stigma around mental health is real. Is it really because of the term mental health? Two words makes everyone cringe, turn their heads, and never want to speak about something?

Growth

Growth. A word I wrote a few times in my journal over this last week. When I fell back into an anxiety spiral, I didn't let it consume me completely.
