I saw this post that was saying that people need to stop holding on to what has hurt them, that true forgiveness means you are done being angry, and that anger somehow poisons your own soul. But I don't believe that forgiveness is the only path to letting go. Indeed, plenty of people do not deserve the blessing of my forgiveness, and did not deserve it the first hundred times I bestowed it upon them.

A few weeks ago, a friend and I uprooted the grass on this overgrown, raised, garden bed on the side of the house I currently reside in, replaced the wood sidings, picked up several bags of well-draining soil, a hoe, and some mums, and transformed the little flower bed. But now, summer has gone and autumn is upon us with winter quickly approaching and I have been throwing every skin or peel from every fruit or vegetable I've eaten into homemade composting buckets. Then the bright idea popped into my head to use the entire garden bed as composting soil since I can't grow anything in it during the winter.

How to Use a Raised Garden Bed as a “Compost Garden” During the Winter To Improve Soil Fertility

Gyms, no. Surely, we can do better than that. And we can! But let's start with the more obvious stuff. You can stay in a hotel or hostel with a gym and pool, or even be luxurious with a sauna or steam room, but why not get outisde of your living quarters and see what the world has to offer?

As it seems to be her new hobby of thrusting things on me without warning whenever I go home to visit my parents, my mother did so again by surprising me with some avocados. I do say "surprise" because, I have never known her to eat avocados and I usually have to force them upon her by sliding them into smoothies or meals whenever I come around. So, I definitely did not have any intentions on cooking when I came to visit for the weekend.

One of my fitness goals for 2017 was finally being able to do a forearm stand. I wasn't being too ambitious. Being able to do a forearm stand while supporting my head was something I'd never been able to do even when I was at my fittest in high school dancing 8+ hours every week. This told me that whatever I'd done in the past had not truly helped me with my forearm stand, which is only partially upper body strength, but, from what I've experienced, is mostly abdominal strength and balance. Abdominal strength has never been one of my strong points, and if you caught my other post, Abdominal Strength: Thoughts From a Girl Who Has Always Been Killed By Crunches, then you know that abs and I have never been close.
