To Bloom

Someone recently asked me about a past experience, one that for a long time I had carried a great deal of shame about, one in which I often sat in judgment. I thought that I should have done something differently or known better. It… Continue Reading “To Bloom”

Supposed To

We tether ourselves to so many things. I have found my hands grasped so firmly to the many ‘mistakes’ I’ve committed, the times I’ve left the path of supposed-to… the path that brought me here. This realization struck me that, as much as I’ve… Continue Reading “Supposed To”
