One of the toughest things I’ve struggled with in life is finding resolve in the questions that aren’t accompanied by an answer. You know, the how’s and why’s in life. For me, sometimes the answers are still only half the battle. If the answers don’t make sense in my mind, then they are just as…

Dear 2018

Dear 2018, You have been a year of clarity and growth. You reintroduced me to myself while also uncovering parts I’d never met.
