Bloody Self-Acceptance

A couple of months ago, I watched a video by Sorelle Amore where she did an exercise in self-acceptance. The exercise seemed simple enough. You stand in front of a mirror naked for an allotted amount of time and simply observe your body without making any judgements or opinions about it. Just observe. After having…

Rollercoaster

Nine months ago I walked out the door of my home in Kansas City for the last time. With my stuff packed up into a trailer, I departed from the best job of my life and took off into the unknown. Why did I leave? Over time, I found myself growing more and more unhealthy.…

A Month of Lights

It has been exactly one month since my release from the psych ward. Writing has been a bit of a challenge as the inspiration has alluded me.

Christmas: A Celebration of Hope

Christmas is upon us again and, just like every year, we are quick to forget what Advent means for us. The light and glory of salvation shining in our dark and hateful world.
