This One’s For You

I’d be lying if I said the last couple of months have been easy. I’d be lying if I said they’ve been good. I have been going through one of the toughest seasons of my life. But the thing I’ll say about seasons, the thing that is honestly hard to remember in the depths of… Continue reading This One’s For You

Fear: The Faithful Frenemy (& How to Unfriend It)

If you’re anything like me, fear is part of your morning routine. Wake up, get dressed, brush your teeth, worry about something.

These last few weeks have been jam-packed with emotion. My cousin passed away a little over a week ago, and I have been going through the process of dealing with everything that comes with that.
