credit

For whatever reason, up until a year ago, I never really was able to give myself credit for anything I did. During my freshman year of high school, I struggled a lot. It was taking me 7 hours to complete homework that should have taken much less. I struggled to balance that with swimming and... Continue Reading →

more

There are some people in this world that love more. Regardless of who they are. Whether it's a romantic relationship, a platonic relationship, a best friend, or a family member. 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.

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.

I used to think that in order to "be happy", I would need to be in a place in my life where I was consistently happy. At all times. I used to dream of that day. I would look forward to a time in my life when everything was the way I wanted it to... Continue Reading →

forgive

It can feel like the most impossible thing to forgive someone who’s done you wrong, especially if it’s someone that has shown you that they are trustworthy in the past. It has happened to all of us before. It comes as a shock. It makes you doubt your own judgement, and wonder if you were... Continue Reading →

passion

When I look back on the past year, I often think about how uncomfortable many of the experiences were. From the minute I woke up after my first seizure, I suddenly felt as if I was living a completely different life. My days were filled with challenges that I had never had to deal with...

new

There's something about new starts. To me, they feel like magic. After the year I've had, moving into school last Sunday was exactly what I've been needing. I'm writing to you from my bedroom in my new apartment. It's the first time I've ever lived in an apartment and have my own bedroom at college.... Continue Reading →
