I need this today. The day hasn't been great wanted to skip my #BFC today, but I told myself I would feel better after yoga. I do feel better, the issues are still here but I have a clearer mind to handle them now. #BFCr2 @wanderinglynn

wanderinglynn 💜 We‘re here for you. Great job pushing through & doing your yoga. And great quote. Take one day, one step at a time. Let us know if you need anything. 2h

30 minutes on the treadmill and I am rewarding myself with lights off and @threeknockscandles burning (The Palace Arcade scent). I want to post a lot because it keeps me accountable. #BFCr2

Would you like to know why Haze is so chill right now? Because when I did my 30 minutes of yoga he was playing with my hair sitting underneath my downward dog, and licking the sweat off of me. My first day of #BFCr2 was definitely a challenge, but a cute challenge. Day 1 done and my body is feeling great. @wanderinglynn

wanderinglynn What a cutie! ❤️🐱 And great start! 🙌🏻 2d

My husband has an old friend from high school who found a bunch of abandoned kittens. My husband fell in love with this white one. Yesterday the hubby and daughter left to pick up this boy and then came home with a little girl too. Meet Haze (the boy) and Cinder (the girl). My reading buddies, today. #Hazedays #Cindercat

I would reccomend this book. Did this book change me stance? No. This book did bring up questions that I looked into. This book supports my stance that you don't have to agree with someone to be kind. You can hear an opinion without getting heated.

Due to rain (again), we have had a very chill day. We played an enchanted forest board game, ran around the stars on the rug, and now we are relaxing in our own ways. For my daughter that means watching movies on her tablet while wearing a Rudolph nose on her head. 🤣

Wow! I love this! I love that the end is left incredibly open, that the focus is Melinda, that she speaks! No, we don't know every detail of how it all plays out, but I don't feel like we need to. 5 ⭐ I will be putting a note on the inside cover of this book to remind me to give it to my daughter when she is older.

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

I have just started this book, but the lyrics to my favorite Beatle's song seem most appropriate.

I keep fighting voices in my mind that say I‘m not enough
Every single lie that tells me I will never measure up
Am I more than just the sum of every high and every low?
Remind me once again just who I am, because I need to know (ooh oh)

This verse could be printed on the back of this book.

He blew his mind out in a car
He didn't notice that the lights had changed
A crowd of people stood and stared
They'd seen his face before

This verse immediately took me to this book. A very tough read, but one that is relevant to our current affairs.
