This series, Three Peaks and a Valley refers to three positive moments and one negative moment that happens during a twenty four hour period of my life. When I’m feeling down, my mom tells me to remember one positive and one negative thing about the experience, a peak and a valley.
Three Peaks and a Valley aims to outweigh the negative with the positive.
Three Peaks and a Valley is a regular miniseries that, by sharing my own moments of joy and vulnerability I hope that you’ll think about your own.
PEAK: Because I haven’t washed my hair in several days my bangs stayed in place all day when I twisted them and clipped them out of my face.
PEAK: At the rotary I was paying attention so I saw another cut suddenly cut me off. I was able to apply my breaks before I hit it. I was glad I didn’t have to deal with a car accident or worse in rush hour traffic.
PEAK: I took it upon myself to socialize and agreed to go out to a 21+ party tonight at The Quarters. It feels good to say yes to things that take me out of my comfort zone.
VALLEY: My period caught me off guard this morning with a vengeance. I’m uncomfortable. I feel dizzy when I stand. I’m losing my mind… I’ve been picking fights all day to let out aggression meanwhile literally crying listening to emotional click bait on NPR.
