On Finding the Perfect Balance

Imagine this: The perfect day, starting with a cup of tea and ending with a book. Filled with mastering a new recipe (something involving chicken, no doubt), writing a short story, going for a run (classic cardio) (just had to google ‘is running cardio’ to make sure), keeping everyone in my life happy, watering a […]

Looking Back, Looking Forward

It feels like a long time since I’ve sat down with a cup of tea and the spontaneity of writing a blog post, so it’s rather nice to be doing just that. With the reintroduction of Christmas music into my life and the weather warming up, blogging is go. This year has gone fast, and […]

Love, Always

I think something that can get lost in the busyness of our everyday lives is that God loves us. Continuously. He loves us whether we finish our to-do list or not, whether we procrastinate or not. He loves us whether we read our Bible for an hour or two minutes, whether we pray in the […]

Good Morning

It’s time for a blog post. Let me hear your cheers of joy. Can cheers be anything but joyful? Can cheers be sad? (I just looked up the definition and a cheer is a shout of joy, so there you go.) (Look at me, caring for your education/not wanting to lead you astray.) It’s lunch […]

The past few mornings I’ve done something that I haven’t done in too long: Not checked my phone as soon as I wake up. My usual routine is to wake up without an alarm, save for Sunday’s because I have church in the morning. I don’t do volunteering until midday, so the time I wake […]

Slowing Down

I didn’t write as many blog posts this May. Let’s talk about that. In some ways I have never written more, but in other ways I’ve never written less. In terms of this blog, I wrote down a lot of one-liners or starts to a blog post, but most haven’t come into fruition yet. Whenever […]

Easter

Easter is one of those days that I want to write a blog post about (hence what you’re reading, well, right now) but in reality it feels like nothing I could write in this post can match up to the meaning of Easter and why it exists. The weightiness of it, if you will. Easter […]

Sunflower Dreaming

I was washing up when I saw them. Sunflowers, fully bloomed, looking absolutely perfect. There’s no other way to describe them. It’s the first time I’ve grown a plant from a seed. As in, all the other flowers and succulents I’ve had I’ve all bought already as plants, so all I had to do was […]
