Be Still and Know

I have honestly not been looking forward to starting school next Monday. I’ve been clinging onto each moment of summer, and the familiarity of the current season I’m in.

Unique

I don’t want to be someone who tries to make my words sound fancy or to be someone that I’m not. I struggle with things just like we all do, but I want to use my struggles to help others. Maybe you’ll be able to relate to this post, and be encouraged that you’re not […]
