Please read and share this. There's a scarily damaging article that's viral right now---it's all over my FB newsfeed. I've written this as a much needed response.

Ironic Facebook share? 

"Happiness is not found on Instagram, or Twitter, or Facebook—and when I begin to question just a hair too much the beauty that resides in my own waking life, that’s when I know that it’s time to do these things instead:"

"When I reflected upon what had changed, it hit me like a fifteen-pound weight (ha): in stepping out of my comfort zone of vinyasa yoga and into my old tennis shoes, I had gotten myself out of a rut."

Spring has brought me a new place to dream!
"So I wrote this, a poem of the end of one such circle—meeting the beginning of another."
