throwback: summer wonder
Hey babes. Hope you're well. I've got a month 'til summer semester starts and I'm hoping to get some creative work done. In the meantime, join me in revisting this prose poem from last summer. (It's raining where I am. And I know people who've still got snow. So it's nice to remember what the sun is like.)
quote of the moment
“Belonging is the innate human desire to be part of something larger than us. Because this yearning is so primal, we often try to acquire it by fitting in and by seeking approval, which are not only hollow substitutes for belonging, but often barriers to it. Because true belonging only happens when we present our authentic, imperfect selves to the world, our sense of belonging can never be greater than our level of self-acceptance.”
- Brené Brown
I recommend following me on instagram for updates (I post on my story most days)
- recently celebrated a birthday with my gang! movie night was cozy and wonderful. I feel so centred and loved.
- my class magazine on mindfulness, Still, is racing toward production! my feature article and back-of-book pieces are written & fact-checked, and they are now in the hands of our editors. hopefully we'll have a finished magazine by june!
