There is magic in the shift from a terrified “I don’t know” to an exhilarated one.
When we make a conscious decision to tell our hearts to live with open aired windows and let our experiences shape us as they will...
When we talk to new people about new things, and if those new things don’t play out into anything we know we can grow from them anyways...
When we choose to say we’re unsure and that’s okay, as opposed to we’re stuck and that’s all...
When we smile, and thank this season and this chapter in a very long book for teaching us that about this...
I don’t think we’ll ever be satisfied because of the phenomenon that newness fades. Change evolves into the familiar. No matter where we move or decide to leap into, eventually, we land. And we can either breathe a bit and then keep going, or we can stay and see what happens. His mercies are new every morning - that newness magic CAN re-enter us because of an infinite-ness outside of this world.
I encourage you to try, ask, or think about something new. Something no one ever told you to think about, that you’ve never let intersect your life. Entering a space you’ve never entered before can only guide you into something or someone new - and that energy feels a little like grace.
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.
