“No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn.” – Hal Borland
This winter was challenging in some ways but rewarding in others. I finished my second semester of graduate school (!!!) and my part-time job which was such a good feeling, but I let the stress of it all get to me. I’m pretty hard on myself because of my perfectionist tendencies, but one of the things I’ve come to learn over time is that true growth takes time. I’m on a lifelong mission to have inner peace and if I look at where I am now compared to where I was last year, I’m definitely making some progress towards that goal. But I have a long way to go.
Winter 2019 showed me that when faced with what feels like impossible tasks, I can – for the most part – keep my cool and look at the bigger picture. Like the quote above says, no winter (or challenge) lasts forever and no spring (or reward) skips its turn.
Goodbye Winter 2019, and thank you for all that you brought my way.
It’s October which means that fall is officially upon us, friends! But before I dive into all the goodness that is fall, I need to say a proper goodbye to summer – and what a summer it was! Summer 2018 brought me the joy of film photography and I am grateful to have had an opportunity to capture my most precious moments in this format.
Without further ado, here are my favourite pictures from Summer 2018. Enjoy!
