week in review

“A predisposition does not a predetermination make.” ~Walter Mishel, The Marshmallow Test

This weekend + week was all about travel, discovering a new city, making new connections and friends and taking risks. It was also about self acceptance at a time when I’m not feeling so great about my body and trying really hard not to feel shame and disappointment in this area (this was not easy). And, patience. Lots and lots of patience.
