May Update

I find this time of year to be so interesting. It’s spring. It’s supposed to be a time of cleansing, releasing, growing, and change. A time to bloom. But I never feel like I’m blooming this time of year… I feel like I’m… flailing. Falling? Like I’m floating through space trying to grab a hold […]
