on learning to love the middles.

on learning to love the middles.

I like things perfect. (hello, enneagram One!) I like things controlled, and clear, and clean, and finished. I like things black or white, and I’m not a fan of all the shades of gray in between. I like starting new things, and I like when things wrap up, but I’m not really all that stoked about the journey in between.

on humility and hard work.

on humility and hard work.

it’s not at all easy to open yourself up— to your own self-reflection, to God, to others. to let down your guard, to inch open the door, to break through the defenses, to let another person see you and speak to you and share with you… it takes work. real, hard work.

on disruptions and living on purpose.

on disruptions and living on purpose.

it’s easy to go through the days on autopilot, waking up and working and eating and mostly just going through the motions without real thought or intention. lately, i’ve been trying to disrupt that.

on feelings and fighting and faith.

on feelings and fighting and faith.

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.

on shadows and sunshine.

on shadows and sunshine.

In a season of depression that has most often felt dark and heavy, it's been hard to celebrate the light when it shines.

on the little clues and big truths.

on the little clues and big truths.

little clues. tiny signs. all pointing to i'm not okay. I want to be, truly. but yet, not entirely.

on green things and staying grounded.

on green things and staying grounded.

i've been craving the feeling of bare feet on soft green grass. i've been wanting to plunge my hands into big pots of cool soil, wanting to break it up between my fingers and be reminded i came from dust like this and i'll return to dust like this someday too.

on the coming and the going.

on the coming and the going.

there's something about roots, and something about wings. there's something about adventure, and something about contentment. there's something about there, and still so much about here.

on living in tension.

the tension is everywhere. i'm unsure what to do with it. but we must start somewhere, and so I am starting here.

on antidotes for anxiety.

I've learned little by little that the anxiety does not have to win.

on learning how i do things.

on learning how i do things.

i've been learning a lot lately about how i handle things. expectations, feelings, awkwardness, growth, friendships.
