Out of the wilderness

I just spent over an hour in the car driving back from an amazing weekend, and I had this song on repeat. I must live under a rock because I've never heard Thy Will by Hillary Scott before (or I did and never noticed).

To live in the present

Sometimes I get lost

It's funny. Sometimes I'm downright in love with my life. Granted, it's been a little extra challenging these last several months and I've allowed myself to be bogged down by that. I've found myself falling into old familiar habits of trying to control all the things that are uncontrollable. I found myself feeling very alone… Continue reading Sometimes I get lost
