✧ It is in YOUR Nature to Enjoy the Good Life ✧

I compressed my hands into my face and clenched my body tightly together fantasizing to remain calm. This morning the creature had found a way to get underneath my skin again. It’s hard to keep your sanity when creatures knick and pick their instability into your life. I locked the doors to try to keep the creature out, but it always comes back. Creatures shouldn’t own house keys. And at that moment, once again… I realized I don’t have to be trapped in the same cage.

"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...”
― Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You'll Go!



So, I decided.

I decided I didn't want to spend the rest of my day concealed within my labtop fortress and ventured out. I picked a random park on google maps and drove there. I needed to get out, and the only creatures I wanted to see would be in their forest.


The beginning of my adventure B]
~the random tree must have fell over from the storm yesterday lol.


I begin the two mile walk ahead of me into the u n k n o w n and it feels pretty good.


☀ Of course, every adventure needs a quick selfie for memories ☀


& I appreciate the little things around me, finally forgetting about the creature at home.


Found a little wooden bridge to walk on.

"We build too many walls, and not enough bridges."


& then... I found a gnome shrine






I'll update the rest of this eventually
