extra stuff

celebrating away the stress

I’ve allowed darkness to squish my light lately, and I’ve been so stressed because of it. I think I need equal and opposite energy to stay balanced and content.

Yes, I’ll still be working my butt off and doing my part to avoid a second civil war, but I’m also going to be celebrating this month. I’m going to be refocusing on the things that make me belly laugh and feel small and wonderful in this human iteration of me.

If you want to follow along with my celebrations, join me on Instagram.
