Broken Dreams brought me here

I’ve had a lot of adversity in my life. More than some, much less than others.

Yes, I have… Continue Reading “Broken Dreams brought me here”

My Next Endeavor

Nascent 

Nascent: just beginning, budding, developing, growing, embryonic, incipient, young, fledgling, evolving, emergent, dawning, burgeoning. This is the perfect word for me this past year. Yesterday’s run made me realize more than ever how far I’ve grown, developed, evolved, etc… etc… Not only physically, but as a… Continue Reading “Nascent “

Reflection
