Personal Hobbies

When I'm not working, I enjoy immersing myself in literature, finding solace in the pages of a good book. Journaling is another activity I find therapeutic, allowing me to reflect and express my thoughts. Nature walks provide a rejuvenating escape, and I prioritize self-care through activities like meditation and indulging in skincare routines. Exploring new culinary experiences and experimenting with cooking also bring me joy, providing a creative outlet outside the therapeutic realm.

You can't go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you and and change the ending. --- C.S. Lewis
