Hello Darkness My Old Friend

It isn’t something I asked for. To bear these feelings. These emotions. These thoughts. But, nevertheless, here we are. For a while, I tried to convince myself that this was a more recent issue.

I’m Not a Superhero, and That is Okay

Some days I feel like Wonder Woman, and some days I resemble Eeyore. I have days where I feel like I can conquer the world, and days where I have to struggle to get out of bed. There are days when I feel like I have it all together, and times when I can’t imagine…… Continue reading I’m Not a Superhero, and That is Okay
