Different opinions

Photo Caption: We may not share the same opinions. I have some pretty out there thoughts on quite a few subjects. I’m OK with that. I’m OK with listening to what you have to say and changing my mind if it resonates with me. I’m OK with holding my...
I am not defined by your definition of me

I am not defined by your definition of me

I am not defined by your definition of me, nor by my definition of myself. My identity is no fixed thing. It does not have to be chosen nor identified and set in stone like a badge of honour to be worn and judged against. ‘You don’t do that’....
Look after yourself

Look after yourself

Moving Anxiety

Moving Anxiety

I’m not going to lie. Looking at apartments this week in Italy got me all kinds of anxious. I want new energy and good coffee and to be close to my friends…. And…. I want travel and new people and to chase the sun’s warmth around the globe. The...
