Leave It Behind

Comparison is the thief of joy. Chances are you’ve heard those words at least once in your life. There is nothing but truth to that statement.

Building a Home

For the first fifteen years of my life, I did not have a home. At least not what someone would conventionally call a home. My mom and I spent those years roaming from place to place.
