Bittersweet Goodbyes

That’s it. Tonight is the last night I’ll be sleeping in this room like it’s mine. My home is going to be a new, strange place, and it’s finally hitting me.

Gratitober: Entry 28

28. I’m grateful for all the warm things! I’m toujours cold. Actually. Unless it’s like 25+ degrees at the end of summer or I’m cocooned in three blankets, I’m cold. Spring, autumn, winter. Even when I wear knit sweaters and scarves and hats and double socks I’m still cold! So when I get the chance… Continue reading Gratitober: Entry 28

Gratitober: Entry 27

27. I’m grateful that this season will pass. Are you tired? Have you been feeling stuck in the same place, repeating the same destructive behaviour? Are you weighed down with discouragement after repeated trial and error? Have fear and anxiety held you back from taking opportunities that might actually turn out well? If you have,… Continue reading Gratitober: Entry 27
