What you don't own will own you

Ever feel guilty because you know if others heard you say the things you did sometimes they’d be like wtf really? Like they wouldn’t understand because their life is a lot more “traditional” than yours. Let me say I have grown up with a very broken family home. Not the type of broken you are probably painting in your head, but more emotionally stunted, and the connection (or rather lack thereof) really did a number on all of our healing. I don’t live with a “traditional” family household. Never have. Never will. This post is all about owning that. Being okay with that.

A happy heart & souls purpose

How my energy is being spent lately hasn't been feeding my heart whatsoever. My "spark" for life has been a little dull, my creative energy has been low, my thought patterns haven't been as positive as I'd like, and all in all how I feel I'm spending my time feels rushed. I certainly don't have the energy to do what does feed my soul. I am honoring my emotions through this current emotional wave, and I'm working really hard on remember my why in this life of mine.
