Hey! Don’t be consumed with where you are “not” right now, ok?
Right now, I happen to be on the west coast, hangin with family for the next week and a half. A few days ago I was crying on my bedroom floor calling friends because I felt out of control.
Life is life - and we can either choose to push on our desires towards change or we can marinate on what’s happening. Personally I am trying to learn how to balance the two. And that’s the message I really really really want to spread.
I think we’re really good at seeking our best selves, but it’s the other half of the battle that’s the hardest.
If we don’t marinate on where we are and how we’re doing, we lose the intimacy of our current experiences. We don’t fulfill a gap that needs to be filled. We don’t notice, nevertheless appreciate, the little things that are so, so good about where we are right now. Right now. And it’s important that we rediscover this presence.
Don’t let an app dictate how you feel about where you are and what you’re doing. Ok !? Promise?
Hi, I'm Chlo.
I've been writing and reading and all the storytelling things since I learned as a kid that if you fold and staple construction paper together, it sort of looks like a real book. I have always craved soul serving stories- ones that melt like butter in your mind as you hear your heart explained out loud.
This here is my home away from home. When I'm not exploring neighborhood coffeehouses, driving down the Pacific Coast (again), or loving on all my people - I'm probably here, with you. Come on in! Scroll around. I hope you feel less alone.
