Adventure

by Kim July 7, 2015

On Big Changes

by Kim February 24, 2015

I’ve neglected this blog in the last month and there are good reasons for that. In fact, life has changed so completely in the past few weeks that I feel almost paralyzed as I sit here attempting to explain it all, complex as it is, in a tiny little blog post.

New Beginnings

by Kim December 30, 2014

I’ve found that I don’t need the curved edges of a year to launch new beginnings for me anymore. I don’t need a fresh start to focus on the things I’ve been putting off or ignoring. Life is a lot more fluid for me than it used to be.
