The world might try and tell you that what you spend your time on might not be for much.
That bustin yo butt to do well on something you care about isn’t worth it. That a project you canttttt stop thinking about isn’t allowed to happen.
Now trust me when I say - balance is HARD. I’m a full-time student and (hi mom) I know I’m not “supposed” to be doing much else. Sometimes I get really overwhelmed by a really simple list of to-do’s, and I’ve had to start taking steps toward understanding myself psychologically as a I progress into this thang called #adulthood. Because UGH does it suck to look down at your calendar and realize you don’t have time to breathe. It’s crippling, actually.
But what has given me LIFE is beginning the process of finding alignment and clarity in what brings me TRUE joy. Not that thing I think I should do or that project that could be cool maybe or that group I could join for the heck of it. NOPE. I said ‘see ya’ to those obligations I wasn’t obliged to obligate myself towards.
2018 so far has given me the best of the best ideas, people, and projects to work at, and MM MM am I PUMPED to keep them rolling. Balance is tough but chase the moments when it kind of comes true.
Love your dreams friend!!! And love yo neighbor. The big man’s smiling down on it all.
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.
