I published a book!

I have been absent from this blog for almost two years now. Covid turned my life upset down, like it did so many others. I found myself moving back home. I found myself in new jobs and in new places that made me uncomfortable. I found myself outside of my comfort zone and I realized one very important lesson. I liked it there.

I am bad at updating my blog, but I have been writing. A lot! I wrote and self published a collection of poetry! For as long as I can remember, this has been a dream of mine. Since sixth grade when the library became a safe haven, I have wanted to have my writing published. I know this is only the beginning, and I am so excited to continue sharing my thoughts and ideas with the world.

How we choose to stay is a collection of poetry that focuses on my struggles with mental health, grief, and finally finding the courage to survive. I poured my soul onto the pages and cried more tears than I care to admit. It would mean the world to me if even one person gave it a look.

Thank you for being here.

Thank you for reading what I have to say.

Thank you for choosing to stay.
