Not Brave Today

Of all the courageous things I did today, what sticks out first and foremost is not my triumphs but my failures. I’m a work in progress, yes. Where I am today was not where I was a year ago or two years ago or even three years ago. How I feel about myself now might…… Continue reading Not Brave Today

Alone or Together

I know I am a person capable of much even though I have anxiety. I get anxious over purportedly “dumb” things. I belittle myself in this way because of the many times I’ve been in the moment of being actively anxious and how stuck I am. I think, Why am I feeling anxiety over this?…… Continue reading Alone or Together

In and Out of My Comfort Zone

Yesterday I attended yoga class for the first time in a looooong time. I prepared by practicing yoga once a day at home for six days straight. That first day of rolling out my mat on my bedroom floor, queuing up a 60-minute yoga instruction video from YouTube, and getting down and dirty was the…… Continue reading In and Out of My Comfort Zone

Missed Call From a Stranger

The curiosity that fans out from me is like a familiar mist. The rectangular little tape recorder icon on the left corner of my screen means I have a new voice message. A quick glance at my phone icon tells me no missed call was logged into the system. One thing can be deducted from…… Continue reading Missed Call From a Stranger

Too Much Activity

I go through fluctuating periods of being annoyed with too much phone activity or being insecure about the activity becoming stalled. Either of these things don’t seem healthy. I’m not saying that is true for everyone but I feel it is true for myself. I suppose it depends on who I am writing to through…… Continue reading Too Much Activity

Unfriending & Browsing Old Messages

Today, I am considering blocking and deleting someone so I’m no longer in contact with him/her. This is a person I’ve been friends with for at least 2 years. Lately we have not seen eye to eye on certain things and it’s partially my fault. Regardless of my reasons for wanting to let go of…… Continue reading Unfriending & Browsing Old Messages

Life’s Randomness

Where am I going with this random post? I don’t know. Life and all that jazz, I suppose? It’s not really a journal entry, in my opinion, so hence the unusual title. December is not my month. It snowed all day yesterday for the first time in my area in New York. I have a…… Continue reading Life’s Randomness

A Broken Promise

A promise I made but never kept was one from my childhood. In all the years afterward where I think of it from time to time, I always feel guilty for breaking the promise because I was too weak. The promise itself was a simple one. In grammar school, a friend of mine went to…… Continue reading A Broken Promise

Experiences at Parties

My personal experiences with parties are few and far in-between. Basically, that means I have almost zero to share about being at parties because they’re not my go-to place to hang out or meet new people, unfortunately. The last party I went to was when I was about sixteen-ish and I traveled all the way…… Continue reading Experiences at Parties
