What I’ve Discovered Recently

Motivational quote print

I’ve had a lot of time to think recently. Thinking used to be something I largely avoided. It came close to terrifying me as much as stepping outside did. At one point in time thinking used to mean simply dwelling. Dwelling on all the bad things of the past, the maybes, the what could have […]

Whittard of Chelsea Haul
