Vulnerability.

Shuffling exhaustion. Drunk tired, barely coherent, Sober as day but wishing I wasn’t. I am here. A place I don’t want to be. But still, I chose to show up.

I Am (Experiencing Life)

I feel small. The kind of small that sinks in your chest, your heart center. Deflated. Dejected. Deserted. I feel bullied.

(Feels like) Home.

The West Coast Runaway Pacific Coast Hostel, University of British Columbia Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada If Whistler taught me to find the courage to sit in moments of extreme anxiety, returning to Vancouver is giving me the canvas to explore slowing down just enough to listen in to what my body needs.
