I’m silencing the voices of shame and kicking fear in the ass to declare that the darkness does not get to win and have power over me any longer. The time has come to tell my story.
All of these things (little, big, and in between) have made a difference in my life and my mental health lately, and that’s something I’m grateful for.
it’s been ages since i’ve written just to write here. i’ve shared lists and reviews and products, but have I honestly shared my heart? not so much.

Safe to say, life isn't slowing down any time soon. There has been less time for reading, more time spent working, more social plans and outings than I've had in a long while, and less time to stop and reflect on it all.
I don't have much to say in this space today, but here are a few things I wanted to pass along:
A new Story Seeker post is coming tomorrow from a friend I love dearly. I can't wait for you to read it.
This post from an old friend is such a good one for anyone struggling with anxiety, control, or feeling like life is heavy and hard.
This post on Verily about the "Seven Types of Friends Every Woman Needs" is a good one.
