A Letter

I wanted to write you a letter; I hope you don’t mind. There is just so much on my mind and so much I want to tell you. Before the hours turn into days and the days turn into months, and the months turn into years. I am standing alone looking out in the distance, […]

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 […]

Learn to Make Yourself Happy

Happiness. You can’t fight the feeling when you feel it, and you can’t hide it when you crave what it used to be. I thought certain aspects of life might tear me down – especially with what others might think – but I have never allowed myself to be defined by what other people had […]

Never Lose Hope

There are no guarantees or promises in life. We never know what is next; it is all a guessing game. One minute you are on top of the world, rising above all else. The next, you are at the bottom, struggling to pick yourself up. Life is tough. It is no secret that you will […]
