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. I have let all the "shoulds" and "yea, but" and "well.." get to me and stop me from going. "Well it's gonna … Continue reading When You Just Do It

2019, Here We Go

Well It is officially 2019. What will you do with it? For me, 2018 was still a bit rough and full of getting over a broken heart, learning about myself, being comfortable with saying no, doing what I want, and being who I am without fear of losing people in my life. I lost friends … Continue reading 2019, Here We Go

When life feels like too much, I get … Continue reading On the Road Again

Murky Waters

Dealing with any mental health issue can be like trudging through murky waters. Everything looks cloudy and you, no matter how hard you try and how many different ways you look at it, cannot make out anything concrete. You can't see the life in the waters below, the tops of your feet, or any sign of … Continue reading Murky Waters

Camouflage

Imagine you are frozen in time; sturdy, immobile, solid like a rock. Nothing can break you and you mold with your surroundings and life's events. You move freely with the current, bouncing off rocks as they come not trying to avoid, dodge, or hit them but rather letting things happen as the natural flow of … Continue reading Camouflage
