A big, big part of my journey out of sucksville involves coming to terms with myself, working on my own narrative, practicing compassion and lovingkindness towards myself.
I am a magpie. I love life, experiences, all thing shiny, and all things are shiny to me.
And that is a cool, wondrous, amazingly beautiful thing about myself that goes completely unappreciated at home.
So here I can play magpie, free from the derisive and/or infantalizing comments that I would encounter/have encountered in my homespace (such as: OH, how CUTE that you know how to do that! SO CUTE! AWWWWWW!)
