  • Thank You, Trauma

    December 19, 2022 by

    I want to start off this post by first saying, hi, it’s been a few months and how are you (really) doing? Most of the time we leave our responses to that common question to great, good, okay, and not so well. But do we want to waste people’s time and energy by diving into… Read more

  • My Semicolon Story

    September 9, 2022 by

    I recently came across a social media post sharing that this week is National Suicide Prevention Week, hence the semicolon (;) reference to represent mental health and suicide prevention. While I have gone back and forth with sharing my experience along with people in my life who I have lost to or survived suicide, I… Read more

  • Letting go…

    August 12, 2022 by

    A week from today I will turn 27. It is crazy to think how a year can fly by, and all the changes you can experience. From experiencing so much loss to gaining so much within a moment’s time. I do feel all moments in life have intent. You are meant to go wherever it… Read more

  • RAW

    June 21, 2021 by

    Raw, when you think of what this word spells backwards, you would notice it spells out war. And for some reason, I feel both raw and at war with all my feels currently. I guess you could blame it on Mercury retrograde. Or maybe it has been a while since I have been fully alone,… Read more

  • I Got Your Msg

    May 24, 2021 by

    I got your message is such a common thought in my mind lately. Because I feel this can either mean two things, I actually got your message or got what you are saying. As I think of this phrase I think over the interactions I have had over the past year and half of my… Read more

  • Alive, Existing and Lived

    May 21, 2021 by

    I feel many of us are alive, but are we really living or we simply existing? I feel we walk a fine line between being alive and existing. Many of the days we spend, we are simply just trying to exist and make it through, that’s okay. We play the part in life where we… Read more

  • Feeling It All

    May 14, 2021 by

    I feel at times we honestly do not take the time to feel all the emotions and thoughts we are experiencing, since we live in such an instantaneous, technological world, where we are always go-go. What about if we just stopped, took a deep breath and reflected for just a moment. I feel in that… Read more

  • Moving On & Forward

    May 10, 2021 by

    Throughout my entire existence, I have like many of you had to leave people and things in the past that are no longer serving me. While I do not like to let people down or cut off communication, at times it is (has been) the best for me and those involved. On the flip side,… Read more

  • Why Did You Go?

    May 4, 2021 by

    The past week of life has been like riding a rollercoaster to say the least, I ended an unhealthy, detrimental relationship, and for me not being further harassed that is what I will leave it at. I just want you to know, the person reading this, if you do not feel loved, accepted, or harassed,… Read more

  • Unstable: Mental Health Struggles

    April 19, 2021 by

    After writing the first sentence then consequentially deleting it time after time, I thought about how I should talk about my own struggles with mental health. While each person’s journey is different with mental health, mine has been one I have dealt from when I was very young. I can think back to when I… Read more

  • Poser

    April 12, 2021 by

    Lately the word, “poser” keeps coming to mind, and I honestly don’t know why. When you think of poser, what or who do you think of? I for some reason think about all of the people I see on social media, like Instagram or Facebook. I think about the people who just show the highlight… Read more

  • Ghosters: Modern Day Daters

    April 8, 2021 by

    Have you ever been ghosted or been the ghoster? Seriously, I think we all can admit we have either had this happen to us or been the one to do the ghosting. And if you are wondering what ghosting is, well pretty much it is when someone, specifically a love interest disappears out of thin… Read more

  • Accountability

    April 5, 2021 by

    Lately I have been thinking about accountability. I have been thinking about what accountability means in the context of being consistent, and how to keep motivation when you clearly do not have it. I myself tend to use a list where I can check off things as I go throughout my day or even week,… Read more

  • Making Amends

    April 2, 2021 by

    About a few weeks ago, I made amends with my past. I texted people who we didn’t leave off on the right foot or note. I also made a pact to myself to put my happiness first. While the past year of my life has been quite wild to say the least, I have learned… Read more

  • The Dating Dilemma

    March 12, 2021 by

    It is crazy to think that when we become teenagers then adults, we embark on the journey of finding our other half. And in order to do that, for most of us, we got to date a good amount of people until we find our so-called person. Well for those lucky few of you find… Read more

  • Be You & Only You

    March 9, 2021 by

    It has been a while since I last posted on here, well that might be because I lost myself in the midst of the last year (or a Mandemic as some of my friends and me like to joke about). I lost who I was and all I wanted to be. Crazy how feelings can… Read more

    It is crazy to write this knowing I am have now been 25 for almost two weeks now. If you would have told me 10 years ago at 15, I would be here, I would not believe you one bit. At 15, I pictured myself married and starting out a new chapter of my life,… Read more

    May 14, 2020 by

    Lately I have been feeling this sense of just being better off on my own. I don’t say that to be negative, but rather I just feel like I don’t want anyone to be carrying around my baggage like its their luggage. I see everyone so happy, content, in love or just living their life… Read more

  • Blossoming Into Who I Want To Be

    April 16, 2020 by

    A few years ago I posted a picture of me saying blossoming into who I want to be, and years later that phrase still rings true.

    Over the past month and half I have been processing through some emotions, and some things.

While making those steps, you learn who you… Read more

    Finding myself through it all, this year has been quite a ride.
