I can do hard things.

Sat down to write a few days ago. But much like so many things in my life currently, I’m getting to it days after the fact… It is Saturday morning. The sun is shining brightly and I immediately feel drawn from my bed to be outdoors. I waste no time putting on yesterday’s yoga pants, throwing on my Grandpa’s old trucker jacket, and heading out … Continue reading I can do hard things.
