Life is layer upon layer of complexity. It is so hard.
Someone once told me that the most important way to spread hope is by growing relationships. Our words matter. We can use them to build people up or tear them down. We can use words to bring hope or isolation. As we balance on the hair’s breadth between optimism and pessimism, we have the choice to consider others before ourselves. I’ll be honest. Most days I see the world through a cloudy lens of self. I believe in trying again. We have the chance every day to learn more about the truth in our hearts and in the hearts of others.
It is my wish that the stories and pictures you find here, help you connect with the world around you and offer some levity and hope as you go out in the world and build relationships with others.
