Embracing your Inner Child

Taken with Yashica EZ Mate

Hi everybody, welcome to a new post. Let’s get started. If you didn’t know this before, I’m an only child. It has many perks, its ups, and its downs, but after 23 years, enjoying my own company has never been an issue. Honestly, I do love surrounding myself with great people, go out, but I’ve also learned how to make peace with solitude. I get to be wild with my own imagination and be exposed to a lot of interests.

Yes, I still am that girl, and I don’t think we ever fully stop building. There will be more […]
