Love is Relentless

Here’s to kissing you forever. Happy anniversary darling. I had no idea who I was when I kissed his tender lips ten years ago. And in my limitation of what I could see of me, I had a limited view of what I could see of him. We were blind, bound by love, and someContinue reading “Love is Relentless”

Future Self Journaling: a 90 day recap on the best tool for self development you’re NOT using.

I have never journaled regularly, at least not in the sense that many people do.
