Losing yourself to find yourself

Hi there!   I have a pretty introspective post for you today, and I hope you enjoy it! Last night, I got back from a 4 1/2 day trip in Colorado, and it was a trip I didn’t know I needed. Not only did I get to spend quality time with my family, but I spent a lot of time…

Hi there! This past week has honestly been a bit off for me, as I have been experiencing some anxious thoughts. For the first few days of having this anxiety, I simply wallowed in it and allowed it to spiral–it’s easy to give in to negative emotions and worry.

The lost art of reading

Hi there! This title sounds a bit intense, I will admit, but the other day I had a realization that I felt inclined to share–I sat down to read a book, finished it in one sitting, and eagerly reached for my phone to post about it. This is what occurs every time I finish reading a book–I post about it…
