"I've stopped approaching God as an ashamed, apologetic, version of myself. Instead, I've started coming to Him as....me. Just me, with all my ups and downs, just one complete whole with varying parts. Just one complete, GOOD, whole. ...It's like magic: I am allowing myself to be imperfect, and I have honestly, finally, never felt better about who I am."
I have reached some kind of emotional-health zen. Let me 'splain. So, in the past I had a crushing tendency to aim for perfection and then beat myself over the head with my shortcomings. We're talking, regular cry sessions on...

Sparkly + Free = Yes.

"The thing is, I don't think most of us magically get better at juggling as we throw more balls in the air. I think we just increase the speed at which we're headed for some ultimate crash. Some moment/day/week where one ball suddenly flies off course, distracts you, and takes the whole circus down with it. In flames. In crazy, glaring, chaotic circus flames."
I have a chronic habit of overfilling my plate. Not my food plate...my hypothetical daily-life-to-do plate. OK and my food plate too sometimes. I'm sure I'm not alone in this. It's like one second things are all calm, and you...

I guess I should start by saying I didn't actually go glamping (glam + camping = luxury camping with electricity and fancy house-tents = glamping), and no "engagements" doesn't actually start with a G. But, oh well. Because, ...

Well this happened.
Sometimes when you're curious about something, you just gotta do it. Like that one time when I wondered if it would be socially unacceptable to take pics in a photo booth by myself....so I felt compelled to go ahead and do it...

It's here! And it's.....something...
Are you a fan of the book The Giver? This was one of the first novels I read as a wee lass....no, I think I hate that phrase...as a young child. It was one of the first dystopian novels....a la Hunger Games, Divergent, etc...

In which I now own a silk shirt, like a grownup. 
I'm not really the type of girl for high-maintenance clothes. Which, is probably why I've never owned a 100% silk shirt before. Can I wash it? Dry it? Probably hang-dry it? Can I even touch it? You can't iron silk, right? The...

A happy little ditty.
We need some tunes up in here. I feel like the ol' shblog has been a bit heavy with all my rambling thoughts lately, so it's high time for a music break! A friend sent this Jesse Woods tune my way a couple months back, and it...
