"I belong deeply to myself"*

The past few months have been hard and I'm ready to put them behind me. Even though I've been going through a difficult time, I'm grateful to the people who have been sources of support for me, as I'm not used to people a) showing up for me and b) staying.

This week I made the decision to stop using a lot of social media: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and dating websites. It's been pretty liberating so far, and already the quiet moments have begun to return to my life. I notice that already I am more intentional about my relationships and spend time writing (letters or in my journal), reading, cooking, and just being more present in everything that I do. This feels good, and I'd like to do it for at least a month.

Kai and I just had our anniversary this week, too. I can't believe it's been two years since I fell in love with him and brought him home with me! He is such a handful, but he has such a personality and is such a bright furball of joy for me. I can't imagine what my life would be like without him.

Somehow the weekend is already half over. I don't know how that happened, but apparently the passage of time doesn't stop just because you don't have work. At least that means there is a new episode of Game of Thrones on tomorrow night.

*if you haven't read Warsan Shire, she is amazing.
