Uncertainty| March 15, 2017

Last night I was given the opportunity to experience one of the most beautiful things a human can be exposed to– a crossroad. The uncertainty in one’s thought process as they are faced with a predicament cannot be described as anything less than exquisite.

I sometimes wonder why we do not allow ourselves to face these crossroads more often in life. We quickly shut our minds off to many ideas and dreams we could have achieved simply so that we will not have to undergo uncertainty and risk. Protective mechanism I guess you could call it.

After last night, seeing someone stuck between two conflicting decisions and choosing to take her “own” road, revealed something to me. Life is not as black and white as we make it seem. Journeys are individual. At the end of the day, we must make sure to take care of ourselves, take risks, survive, and come out on the other end— Happy.

Pleaser. | January 28, 2016

Everyone wants to be loved right? We firstly experience this tender warmth when placed on our mothers breasts for the first time. Then we spend the rest of our lives attempting to recreate this feeling in our interpersonal relationships. But what happens when the baseline of love meant to be shown to you by your mother never felt complete? Then you spend the rest of your life pleasing others in hopes that their love will be deep enough to somehow fulfill the indentations.

It’s clearly evident however, that contentment will not take place in these relationships  for you’ll strive to make them love you, instead of allowing them to decide to give you love. Continue reading “Pleaser. | January 28, 2016”

Truth. | January 13, 2017

Damn. I haven’t actually sat down and gathered my thoughts together in a good minute.

Today I came to the conclusion that people may be better off unaware of the completely raw truth.

My lovely counselor decided that I have trust issues (which is nothing I didn’t know before). In order for me to break out of my “everyone will mess you up” mentality, she suggested I start being more open with people that I’m close to without feeding them all that they want to hear. In order for this mentality shift to be successful, I need to actually taken others deep enough into where the honesty lies so they can catch a whiff of all the crap I’ve been feeding them this whole time. So naturally what do you do when your counselor gives you “professional advice”?…You trust that their 6 years of graduate school certifies them to play games with your mind, so you let them.

2016 Gone Already? | January 10, 2016

Last year flew by with the quickness. I can honestly say that was the most challenging, yet most beautiful year of my life. I learned more that year than I remembered to jot down, but here goes some…

1. Take responsibility and make decisions even if you really don’t want to. Because guess what? It turns out okay in the end.

2. Don’t beat yourself up for making a decision that contradicts with what someone else thinks. If you believe it, why bother explaining yourself.  Continue reading “2016 Gone Already? | January 10, 2016”

Repeat.| November 5, 2016

Overwhelmed. Feeling trapped somewhere in between security and passion; unable to equate either to success.

Pushing through is a possibility. Day after day, lecture after lecture. Just one more year, or two or three or who knows how many.

For the amount of times this thought passes my mind, it’s astonishing that I’m still at square A. Ineffective decision making perhaps, but most likely the four letter word we all fail to admit to: FEAR.

So here we go again, back to where my mind could function without distraction. Time to fall off the face of the Earth again.

This time for some reason feels as though it’ll bear a lot more tears.

The New Kid| October 26, 2016

“Everyone, we have a new student joining us in class today.”

Synovial neck joints rotate euphorically unanimously in search of the new creature bearing the intrigue they so crave for to awaken their breathing corpses and ignite their drowning spring. Palms hit the desks transferring perplexed appearances upon the masses of curious bodies. Continue reading “The New Kid| October 26, 2016”

Healing. | October 4, 2016

Missing you now more than ever before my little one. You’ve consumed my thoughts all day today. Look at me trying to live out milestones in my mind that were never had the opportunity to be met.

Crazy how I’m still stuck on you and you were only a part of my 18 year old life for less than 2 months. Even after it all, I would have wished for nothing less.

I know that somehow, someway, it was worth it.
