Hey, I’m Alyssa!

An Appreciation of Slowness and the Constant Allure of Productivity
The older I get, the more I want to take a moment to appreciate what I have, and how far I’ve come, instead of focusing on what I don’t. There will always be another task, another goal to achieve, but I’m more than a little tired of my productivity-addiction keeping me in a chokehold. It’s…
