Birthday Reflections

When I sat down to write this, I had no idea what to say about my birthday. Usually, I write what I feel. But this time, I found myself searching for ways to describe how I feel. So instead, I'm going to write a letter. A letter to "26". Here it goes.

Home is where you are

I've always thought of home as a place. Each of us has some place we call home. A physical place we live in. A place we go to at the end of each day. There is, however, another "home" we live in. A home which often does not get the same admiration as our places of residence do. 

Be THAT person

With school having ended recently, my days have slowed down. I have much more time to myself, and plenty of time to think. The other day, while in conversation with someone, I felt uncomfortably comfortable. Chatting away with someone I barely know is not usually within my comfort zone. Yet, this time it was.

Being me

It's 3 pm, and I have done nothing today except indulge in reality TV, eat all sorts of yummy foods and cuddle the pup. And there is no place I would rather be. In fact, I have been dreaming about this moment for months. All that matters is what my heart desires. And this is everything that it desires right now.


Have you ever felt yourself change? Like really and truly felt the transition? How do you truly experience a transition? How do you feel all that it comes with? I've been asking myself this question for awhile. Especially after being fully immersed in "student life". 

A love letter

This Valentine's day, regardless of what status you wish to hold, I want to remind you of a special kind of love. A kind of love that each and every single one of you already have. And that my friend, is love of yourself...

Twenty seventeen

I don't know how I feel about resolutions. On one hand, the new year brings a clean slate. However, the expectation to start fresh, make new goals and follow-through on them can be overwhelming. So which one is it then?
