Write what you can

At the beginning of the year I wrote a post around my word for 2019 which is to Deepen. Reading back through it even today, I can see where I am beginning to see fruit and also where I am needing to intentionally push down even more. What has helped has been to set aside time on…

Year 11

Today I woke up remebering a today from the past. Waking up and realising my whole life had just turned upside down and nothing would ever be the same. And you said “take courage” and I did. Yet I didn’t realise that courage doesn’t always take the form of a lion; boldness not always identified…
