You’re Not Meant for a Box

Well, only you can know what kind of box you’re trying to fit yourself into. But let me remind you that you’re not meant to live in a box. Your expectations don’t own you. Their perceptions don’t define you.

Get out of the box. It’s not worth it to try and make it work.

Life Escapes

Planting a garden on my porch will always be one of the best decisions of my 20s. It has led to such profound reawakening of joy, hope, and anticipation. God has shown me such love + treasure through the small garden I began a few years ago. As my porch garden expanded so did the whole of my heart and soul. Life escapes where we cannot imagine it ever will.

And, for now, this poem is the best I can do to describe it.
