regret

These days, I look back at my high school years with regret. I think about what my life was like before and the fact that I didn't take the time to count my blessings.I spent a lot of time not treating the people around me the best I could because I was too busy feeling... Continue Reading →

perfection

I have always believed that there was only one right way to do things. Just one path, one attitude, one way of going about things. If I didn't do things that way, I was wrong. I wanted to be like everybody else because that's what I thought was right. It was a constant struggle with... Continue Reading →

fate

I think fate means something different to everyone. To some, it means that what happens is God's plan. To others, it's the acceptance that we have no control over what our future looks like. To me, it means that everything happens for a reason. In mid-September of last year, I met someone who has since... Continue Reading →

awareness

I’ve always been one of those people who loves to plan. I make lists, arrange hangouts with friends, and plan my future as best as I can. When I walked into Linda’s the morning of October 1 of last year, I was planning to get breakfast and go back to my room to watch a... Continue Reading →

It's not a conscious effort. It's instinctual. It's how they are built. They don't know any other way to be, just to love as much... Continue Reading →

promises

It can be so easy to get caught up in the idea of forever when it comes to relationships. Every day, I see people in brand new relationships throw the word around on social media. It's almost addicting. It's a huge relief when someone promises you that they aren't going anywhere. But who can really... Continue Reading →

change

Happiness is fluid. I found mine in the acceptance that life isn't going to be exactly what I want it to be. Things and people are going to change, and we have to go with it. Nothing is guaranteed, and that's okay. Change is the healthiest thing that there is, even if it's not what... Continue Reading →

one

The passage of time is completely incomprehensible to me. It blows my mind how quickly it goes. Some days feel so long, but suddenly it's been a month. Then six months. Then a year. And you look back, wondering how it could've possibly been that long, wishing for the time back. But there's something amazing... Continue Reading →
