Farewell, Comparison

Why do I compare? Why do I put stock in things that might not even really be there? She is better at this He is better at that And all the while I’m not improving or being okay with where I’m at.   Comparison writes a sentence: Shuts us up in a cell, digs a…… Continue reading Farewell, Comparison

Aha!

I almost didn’t make it here today. Everything inside me said, “No, I’m tired.” “Forget it; I’m not inspired.” I’d rather call it a wash and walk away.   My brain is flying to a million places.
