#NIADIARIES VOL 6. – “DO NOTHING WITHOUT INTENTION.”

Scrolling through the most popular images on any "self care" hashtag, I'm bombarded with the same eye-rollingly repetitive imagery including: -  Open-ended, fortune cookie-esque inspirational quotes like "You can't pour from an empty cup." or "My imperfections make me beautiful." - Super skinny white girls in front of tropical, beachy, etc. backgrounds looking like they've never felt any pain in...

2019 / HAPPY NEW YEAR BABE
