Tripping On Air

Tripping On Air. First, what an awesome title (and look at her logo, y’all — everything). Second, I absolutely love her blog. I am looking forward to blog binging (is that a real phrase, or did I make that up) today:

TRIPPINGONAIR

Her Instagram feed has been such an inspiration to me, as I am getting adjusted to life in public on my wheels. I have sheltered myself for months, afraid of what others will think of me. I’m slowly getting out of my funk. It’s been hard, but I am thankful to others for sharing their experiences. It’s not easy. I admire their courage.

This woman is such an inspiration.

Love and Light.
