Restore the sparkle to my eyes

At some point over the past year, I stopped journaling. I’ve always been super into writing everything down, in specific detail, no matter what, because I wanted to have everything documented. Every situation, every conversation, every emotion that was important to my circumstance at that time. I loved it because when I’d look back on [...]

Warrior
