2016 in Review

I have had brief periods of neglect in my blogging in the past, but nothing like this one. I, like many of the people I know and love, have been lost this year. A mixture of fear, hope, chaos, confusion, will, uncertainty, and drive all swirl through my head in reckless waves. I know what I want and who I need to be, but it has seemed just barely out of my reach all year. My fingertips brush it daily, but I can never seem to grasp it. I’ve been hiding a lot. Escapism has been my best friend, but it has left me feeling tired and empty.

I am  finally ready to break out of this shell. I am ready to strive to be that person who has been in hiding. I am ready to rest and repair in these dark days in order to emerge in my truest form come spring. I am ready to live the life I have always dreamed of.

CREATE. LOVE. DREAM. MAKE PLANT MAGIC. FARM. COOK. MAKE MY HOME MY SANCTUARY. REST. HYDRATE. MOVE. PREPARE. SIMPLIFY. CONNECT. GROW.

What keeps you going in your dark times? I’d love to hear from you!

Here are the things that kept me going this year and a few of the dark times too:
