To me, loving somebody means accepting them as they are, all flaws included. It means choosing to help them even when they’re irritating, even when they’re a hysterical mess and all you want to do is turn the other way. Sometimes it’s a choice- to admit you’re wrong, put your pride aside, and pick them back up. We all deserve real love. It all seems so simple- and yet it is not. Continue reading “half love”
In this world, we’re always told to pick a side. Have a preference, a set opinion or a signature style. A way of being. However, there are always those who seem unable to choose. Are you one of them?
I think it’s safe to say that everybody worries sometimes. It’s only human, but for some of us worry becomes a force that controls our lives. I know this first hand- I’m not ashamed to admit that I’ve struggled with fear and anxiety. For a while I even allowed it to change who I was. Continue reading “anxiety”
Life goes by so fast, it’s impossible to keep track. This time last year I was fresh from a trip to disneyland with my friends, worrying about diploma exams and walking the stage at my high school graduation. So much has changed.

Okay, this is a subject I’ve wanted to write about but have been avoiding for a long, long time. Breakups suck. They’re exhausting and extremely heartbreaking, and they seem to drag on forever and forever. Having been through the breakup from hell, I figured I’m finally ready to put all those feelings in writing with the hope that somebody who’s going through the same thing finds this post and feels just a little better.
I’ll admit it- I haven’t been feeling my best as of late. This blog is supposed to be about all the things that impact my life; not just the happy moments. So here I am.

if you’ve read any of my other posts, you may have noticed that I always put a quote or poem at the end, just to sum things up nicely. A lot of my end blurbs come from Rupi Kaur and her book Milk and Honey. I thought I would write about it a little today, since it means so much to me. Continue reading “milk and honey”
Grace. It is the most important word in the world to me. It brings me so much happiness. It’s changed the way I live my life- and yet I find myself feeling guilty about it sometimes.
I can’t really tell you why exactly I started this blog. The truth is a lot has been changing for me and I guess I don’t know where to put it all, so here I am. Continue reading “times are changing”
