Freedom through Forgiveness

“It’s one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself, to forgive.” Why is it so much more difficult for us to forgive ourselves than it is to forgive the people we love? This is a question that often comes to mind in the midst of having made a mistake. I believe it stems fromContinue reading “Freedom through Forgiveness”

Swiss Scribbles

Waiting for the electric sunrise, the flow of lights streaming in synchronicity as the streetlights come on; that one in the kitchen above the sink, the other beside the bed across town, another weaving through plants in the sun room, and the twinkly ones strewn over the fence on Chrum street; reflections of people livingContinue reading “Swiss Scribbles”

Shameless (Pt. 3) Self-Love

“You can’t pour from an empty cup.” Oftentimes, our ego tells us that we can’t possibly be happy until we have achieved either this thing or that. The problem is that all we ever have is the present moment. If we put off our happiness now for later, it will only ever be so. WeContinue reading “Shameless (Pt. 3) Self-Love”

February (Pt. 2) Freakout

“How long should you try? Until.” I’d like to share that amidst my progression to be healthier this year, I’ve eaten some foods where health was certainly questionable. And though I felt guilty, I took a moment to stop and listen to the chattering mind that began to take over. Entertained by the ridiculousness ofContinue reading “February (Pt. 2) Freakout”

Chesham Chatters

The tiny trail, though surely much longer than I thought it would be, nestled in a cozy town. Snoring softly in winter and brought to life by the yellow in the sun. The way of things. How lovely it is to go on a walk, alone with your thoughts and the flowers, passing through treesContinue reading “Chesham Chatters”

January (Pt. 1) Jitters

“Set your goals high enough to inspire you and low enough to encourage you.” The usefulness of bringing your New Years resolutions back into reality. Not the goals themselves (go big or go home), but the timeframes you allot. With the beginning of the New Year brings the long-anticipated feeling of a fresh start. AndContinue reading “January (Pt. 1) Jitters”

Merrily Mary

A queue to big when considering the space, people line up nonetheless. Zigzagging over cobble stone, in a quaint little market, in view of a not-so quaint, magnificent castle. Coming from around the world to taste a bit of the thing that all from here say you must. For is it really a trip toContinue reading “Merrily Mary”

Living a Meaningful Life

What it truly means to live an authentic and meaningful life has become obscured. Advertisers know this. Their very existence depends on it. They play on our primitive fears of not being “good enough.” They prey on our foolishly egotistical longings for more money, more materials, more of anything and everything beyond what we currentlyContinue reading “Living a Meaningful Life”

Doggy Doodles

A teeny town, just over the railroad tracks. It’s his home. If he ever got lost, I’d know right where to find him. Here. A favorite place for salty paws. Every time we go out, the leash always tugs in the same direction. And I feel guilty because I know I should take him moreContinue reading “Doggy Doodles”
