[I write for me first. Just felt I should say that, because in consuming things others share on the Internet, sometimes we forget and don't fully honour or give attention to what a person — who is being vulnerable in a respectful way — is really saying, going through or in need of. One of…Read more soft places for me.
Wrote this last year and left it as a draft. Just found it and it's pretty sobering to read it again. I do struggle with gratitude. (Ghana also makes it a bit harder to practice 😅...) I realized at the time that I didn't have a practice for gratitude and decided to just write something…Read more gratitude. 30/10/18
Just needed to document (or vent) some thoughts about how I've been feeling this year when it comes to online activity (hopefully they will change at some point?

But…Read more Don’t Fight The Process (a.k.a. It’s Gonna Suck Getting Where You Want To Go)
I thought it would be fun to keep track of the things I currently like (from within a period of a few months; that’s usually how long my tastes/preferences last) and maybe find some kindred spirits who connect in one way or the other. [Orr you will just discover how strange I may be, to…Read more stuff i fancy 2015 roundup pt. 2
