I used to fear being alone, I hated the idea of it. It started as a child, I was deeply afraid of being left behind, abandoned... forced to face the world by myself. Eventually I grew out of it. But not surprisingly, I grew into a people person; a fiercely independent one. One that very much appreciated her space and ability to wander freely; she answered no one. But somehow, still always surrounded by people. .
I'm still a people person, to an extent. I love listening to others share their stories and experiences; it fascinates me. Being told about the world through someone else's eyes, processing something completely different than my norm, learning something wild, understanding a new perspective... it's enticing. But even-though, that need for time away and space to breathe only gets stronger as the days pass, and I have to believe that's because I'm still learning to understand it through my own means.
The more time I spend alone, the more I crave it. Sometimes I worry that this will spiral into much more than a person who likes her space and freedom. I often wonder if I'm wandering into a dark cave I'll likely get lost in, but just haven't fully realized it yet. .
At the same time, I feel happy, so at peace and so free. Because of the ever increasing distance I keep creating, there's much less noise, confusion and distraction; I'm less influenced. I am more 'myself' with each day that passes, and I'm beginning to understand what that actually means. Things appear much clearer to me now; I'm beginning to find the missing pieces and see things a while, in their entirety for what they truly are. And most importantly, I'm learning to accept it; I'm not afraid anymore. --a #sweatsavvysisters
Beyond grateful to have been able to have this beautiful place as my office. To have been able to swap the city life for one in the mountains and to have never looked back. For the first time in my life I kinda wish the winter lasted a lil longer.☀️⛰
It’s a Sea Lion party at French Creek!
There’s a whole crew of Steller (biggest of all sea lions) and California Sea Lions just hanging out!
The big boys are talking a little (herring) smack – and chillin’! Too cool to be able to see them this closely (and safely) from shore 😊
✦ Send me 1 or more edits of a confession. It can be one of your old ones as long as I get to see your style
✦ Stick to the traditional edits with a white background, any color foreground and a transparent piece of art
✦ The edit must include art credit and the accounts watermark or it won’t count
Ꭰue to the lack of active admins I will have you answer these questions
✦ Why would you like to be an admin to this account?
✦ When will be the best times for you to post if you were picked admin?
✦ On a scale of 1 to 10 how active will you be? And please be honest
Ꮖf you want a higher chance of me choosing you as an admin I’d recommend using clear art (that isn’t blurry) that matches the colors, using unique fonts and keeping things neat and creative
Ꭺlso if you are picked admin be prepared for some small rules like having an organized caption for your posts, but that’s pretty much it
Ꮹood luck to everyone that tries out and I’m hoping to accept 3 admin 💞 Please comment 💓 if you are trying out

Today was SO beautiful. 🌿I feel huge gratitude for my cloudy mornings of teaching and sharing, for the wonderful friends we have here and the ever-growing sense of a community. Gratitude for all the yummy food + amazing coffee so freely available. For the warmth of local people and the sweet love of all the animals. And for these magnificent views which I breathe-in deeply into my heart, every day. 🌿

There seemed not to be another living thing in all the world. There was something of bliss in this stillness, and something ominous too. It was the kind of stillness that beckons us to turn inward, toward the beginnings of our existence. —Paul Grundhoefer
