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 →

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 →

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.

purpose

A few months ago, I woke up on what I thought would be a typical Tuesday morning to an email that one of my classmates had passed. Even though I didn't know her very well, I knew that she was a very sweet girl. I had a class with her and we had spoken a... Continue Reading →

time

Lately, I've found myself very guilty of wishing time away. To combat the negativity of doctor's appointments and long work days, I have found it helpful to look forward to exciting things that are coming up.
