This morning, I woke up to a video on—you guessed it!—digital minimalism, by one of my favorite booktubers, R.C. Waldun. He recounts his two weeks in his new apartment without internet. I work from home so cutting internet entirely is impossible. However, I wonder what this kind of partial “off-the-grid” life would look like for me…
It’s a gorgeous, blue-skied, fluffy white-clouded spring morning here in Washington. I don’t know what I’m doing indoors.
I have an idea of going to Barnes & Noble for the fun of it. Last time was quite a few months ago, though I didn’t buy anything.
If I remember correctly, the last time I actually bought something in a B&N store was a book to prep for an interview. I got there when it opened and probably seemed a little frantic because I wanted to get the book before I had to show up at the office at my current job. The cashier, a middle-aged woman with blonde hair, was so kind and wished me well. I don’t mean she just went through the motions of wishing me well… I think she meant it.
You matter. Show someone else they matter, too.
Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.1 Cor. 6:19–20
I am not my own
For I have been made new
Please don't let me go
I desperately need You

I’m at turning point in life, which (for personal reasons) I can’t be more specific about, other than that it’s really important. I suppose the best way to describe it, generically speaking, is that I’ve tried my best and failed, and now it is time to embrace failure by congratulating myself for trying, then moving forward. 😉 C’est la vie, et la vie continue.
