What It Means To Be Broken

I'm choosing to let my life be ruled by love, and not fear, because what do I really have to be afraid of? I'm freeing myself up to be open, honest, and authentic without fear of judgement. I'm letting go of that which does not serve me, including overthinking, unhealthy obligation, and caring what others think of me. I'm granting myself permission to take a step back and truly begin to process everything that's happened. 

Tis the season...

I've actually always loved the holiday season. Not just the breaks and time off, but the peace and energy that comes with it all. The fact that (commercially at least) everything is suddenly about wonder and warmth and sharing and sweetness and giving and gratefulness.

It's late November. Officially "The Holiday Season", whatever that means. There's music about cold weather and mythical creatures, spicy festive beverages, ugly sweaters, calorically dense foods,  and twinkling lights everywhere. I'm sure it's supposed to be a good time, but like many people this time of year is really difficult for me.

I have a roommate (she's a wonderful human being who happens to be a singer/song-writer who creates what I like to call “strong feeling music”. I have strong feelings. We make sense.) For the sake of this story, we'll call her "M". NOTE: This isn't some weird anonymity thing, it's more about ethics and if I'm honest, an aesthetically pleasing dialogue format
