TRUST.

Reflecting on 2018, I chased acceptance. I wanted so badly to be seen and affirmed. I wanted things to go according to my plan with no room for change.

LIGHT.

This Christmas Eve, I was encouraged and reminded that we are not built to live this life alone. That it’s okay to not be strong enough on our own. And that we are here to help others live lives full of light. Two experiences shed light on this truth that day – Chris Chandler’s SoulCycle […]
