Is it any wonder that the smallest of gestures have ripples that change the outcome of a life.
Days aren’t merely “placeholders” for numbers,
in a week,
in a month,
in a year.
In a life.
Each snooze button pressed, coffee poured, text answered, speeding, yelling, lost keys, forgotten words, smile, red light, tear, ripped hem, prayer, stubbed toe, broken heart, locked door, missing shoe, left turn instead of right
They all add up.
Bringing you to now.
Grab it.
It is where you are meant to be.

But you’re somebody else
Only it ain’t on the surface”

When did we stop loving photographs of ourselves? Is there a path back?

“My days all look the same
And I’ve known these wolves by name
‘Cause my own devils are all heartless lovers
And these sea legs tend to ache
Whenever I stay in the same place
It might be good of me to go”

—Ballroom Thieves

Saying YES to more adventures in my life.

Growing up, it was slowly, consistently shown to me that my desire for solitude was somehow “wrong”. It meant that I was anti-social, or odd. I do not think these things were intentional, but that they simply came from a place of unknowing, and little understanding of personality types from the adults in my life. A life surrounded by extroverts. It’s taken me a lifetime to undo those thought patterns, to embrace my need for solitude. And now that I’m here, with a much fuller understanding of what my introverted, type 4, infp-ness means, it’s a lovely and fulfilling place to be.
