Fill your emptiness, with you

I don’t want to agree with this. I don’t think we should seek to find happiness in external factors. We should work on creating happiness within ourselves. Maybe we need to find ways to fill those empty spaces through finding love and joy for ourselves. Not through seeking another person; or place; or distraction. I … Continue reading

While 7 years isn’t really a typical celebratory length of time, or notable ‘anniversary’ or anything, I still would like to share what I think is rather coincidental (?) – or should I say, has … Continue reading
