And it felt like my biggest accomplishment of this year, to date. Yes, I also finished a Master’s Thesis this year. Yes, I’ve also navigated intense, personal tragedies, trekked knee-deep through the aftermaths traumas, yes, anxiety turned my heart (literally) into emergencies. But I think I FINALLY let go of whatever inside me would have formerly felt compelled, or hopeful, or maybe even bored enough to respond to that text. I didn’t do it.

If you're like me, the full moon always brings the FULL FEELS. Coming off of Venus in Retrograde, we have been re-assessing our roles in past relationships (romantic or otherwise), which has left my heart so full of renewed love for myself and others, but also so fully confused! What am I truly looking for in my relationships? What do I have to offer to others/am I giving too much of myself? Am I giving enough? What does love look and feel like in a healthy relatio...
