I've spent most of my free time the past few months taking gentle doses of mushrooms and going off on lesser-known trails to hike and run my way through the mountains alone all day. I make pits stops at secret waterfalls and swimming holes to cool off with skinny dipping. It's been the most effective form of therapy I've ever done. I no longer have that persistent rain cloud hanging over my head when I wake up every morning. I am grounded and powerful in my femininity and body in a way I never have before, completely removed from the petty stress of having interact with people who just drain my energy, and fully in love with life. I never want this summer to end.
