The Struggle

I feel like I’m in a funk that I just can’t seem to get out of and stay out of. For a time all is well and good but then I feel myself slip back into that space. It’s like quicksand it slowly pulls you in further and further till suddenly you realize its chest… Continue reading The Struggle
