Stepped into a counseling center for the very first time.
Ran a 10k.
Staycationed for spring break.
Organized a TEDx event.
Supported mom organizing her own.
Flew to NYC for another one.
Read a lot.
Wrote even more.
Walked and talked.
Started and finished The Office for the 4th time in a row.
Realized I’m a sav blanc fan.
Became a great grand big.
Dressed up, messed up, showed up in bold ways.
But learned to wash my face.
And turned my mental health into my biggest strength.
2018, I don’t have any one lesson I learned from you but thank you for it all. Thank you for these chances to dump lumpy clay on a whirling potters wheel and let the Potter make it something redemptive. This story’s just gettin started. And we ready to R I S E.
Happy "Joy" Year.
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.
