Be Wary of Never

Have you ever caught yourself saying, “I could NEVER…” and then found yourself doing said thing? Yeah. I am beginning to think life is made up of all of our nevers. Or maybe it’s  just my life. It seems as though every single time I have ever uttered those words it has eventually come to…

The blister of growth

This morning I was thinking about all the ways I am going to miss NC. My instant reaction was, “My soul broke open here” but a mere second later I thought, “no that’s not quite right.” It’s not. I went through tremendous growth here, so what could I liken it to? Perhaps not quite the…
