I had no clue I was stuck in my own negativity. Everything was a problem. Nothing was good enough. There was always something better, something more. My language was negative, and so were my thoughts. When I was able to slow down, I started to notice all of this. Awareness. I was seeing what was … Continue reading Grateful
I’m starting with myself. I will try to understand. I will educate myself. I will accept how much I don’t know. I will listen. I will learn about myself. I will learn about my privilege.
