I’ve never really liked change. It’s scary. Stepping out into the unknown and hoping for the best isn’t exactly my idea of fun. If I stick with what I know, then I don’t have to worry or wonder, or guess, or hope for the best because my comfort zone is my happy place and it’s … Continue reading trusting and changes
6am. I can hear the melody of the birds through the window. I haven’t seen sleep because I have an addiction to pushing myself to the limits.
