The Sunday Currently Vol 5 | she is every woman

Okay, so I actually find it mind-blowing that the last Sunday Currently I did was two years ago. Wow. So yea, this is another attempt to write again and share what I have been up to. :') Reading Kim Jiyoung, Born 1982.

Split Second of Stillness

I used to think that the universe will let me breathe if I would stop asking what it wants me to do; that I just need to seek what I want to do. So, I do that because I am done trying.

We owe at least that to ourselves. Growth is painful.
