fixing broken things

I have this quote saved on a word document but I can’t remember where I saw it. I googled it and I see it was posted on tumblr a while ago. Maybe it was a sage tumblrer out there

One year ago yesterday I took the step that Alexis Pauline Gumbs describes as “viewing my life as a divine calling and not an alienated net worth.”

So I guess I was dissatisfied with where I was. And I changed it. I left toxic relationships, the hard way or the easy way, I left toxic environments and work places where the yellow lights seemed to be dimming any hope of writing and dreaming. I left towns with ghosts. I planted trees.
