aliciazakon so to be real i've been having these stomach-churning aches this summer related to dreamchasing... took what feels like a long break from working on my goals and just started to look around at the bomb stuff everyone else is doing and man... it's overwhelming to observe ppl running when you're just plopped there watching it all pass. there is sickness you will develop if you just let your ideas marinate until they fester inside.
so GO. don't even run just walk. type a sentence. take one photo. yea i'm sure you've heard life's not a sprint it's a marathon... but let's at least start jogging. .

aliciazakon I've been reading The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, which encourages us to only bring things into our lives that spark joy. Um, I'm not sure how I'm supposed to wear this thing but I think this counts as joy laugher in the background by my niece who brings out the silly in me Happy Saturday. 1mon

aliciazakon this is how i feel / like i keep reaching for things but can never quite grab them / like i know what i want but can never quite have it. this is how i feel.
and tomorrow i will wake up and remind myself to leap. fight. reach. tomorrow i will stretch past my limits. tomorrow i will put on my brave face.
but tonight i will honor my struggle.
