In addition to getting out there and actually doing the things, I will always consult people who have done the things before me. It’s an important part of my praxis. I also require inspiration to keep the fire of creativity burning. In those moments where it’s not enough to believe in myself, I crack open a good book and let the words bring my mental into a space where I feel inspired and ready to create all over again.

This read was recommended to me by my therapist during our last session after needing to pause our services temporarily. She wanted to make sure I had some tools to take with me as I made plans to rebuild my life in ways that would address some of the things discussed in our sessions. I love a therapist with a plan and some tools *wink wink.* I look forward to when I can resume sessions with her. In the meantime, this book has been taking me on a journey of trusting that I am currently on the path I’m intended to be on, to have the life that will keep me well & fulfilled.

I’ve finally had some time to set up things in my apartment after a long while of only kind of being unpacked since I moved in several months ago. I honestly never quite understood the love y’all had for Target, but recently, I went in to get one very specific thing and left with all the things I absolutely did not need. If you could only see my “to buy” list now.

Look at these cute pillows I got! I also convinced myself I needed wine coasters because… why not?

With all the picture-taking, reading, reorganizing, and decorating. I’ve been journaling all the ideas that have come to my head, and this blog post is just one of the ways I’m holding myself accountable to all I feel like creating.

  1. Team Canon! I miss the excitement of a new camera.

  2. So for your camera, I recommend getting a microphone that attaches to it. And then usually those come with something called a dead squirrel. It’s just a big fuzzy cover that makes it so you don’t get the wind blowing and things like that. I have a Sony zv10 and I bought a small mic for it and it came with that and it helps a lot.
