Painting You a Picture…

There was a picture I had for my life long before this blog was created, long before you knew me. I spent my entire being painting this picture. It was filled with different colours and shapes. I was so excited to be creating this piece because I was going to live my entire life looking […]

Sometimes I feel like I’ve lost her…

The woman and girl I used to be… She used to live on the edge, she used to take me everywhere, and she always had something to experience. She craved adventure and loved the thrill.

What do you do now?

The biggest question we get asked as adults is, “What do you want to do with your life?”. I thought the answer would be in plain sight of me. I thought if I finish school, I’d figure it out. “So what do you want to do?”; What if I don’t know? We are all looking […]

Perspective of a child

Childhood was a blessing. A complete blessing. The places I visited, the lessons I learned, and the moments I’ve never lost. When you’re a child you just see the world in a different light. I think, as we get older we start to build walls around that light and it becomes lost. But no matter […]

I’m Sorry

I’m sorry it had to be this way. I’m sorry it wasn’t fair. I wish more than anything it could have been. I wish none of this happened to you because you didn’t deserve it. I know you had dreams and aspirations. I know you planned so many things. You can’t do any of it […]
