Feeling Lost

I went for a walk this morning, much too early for my liking. Thinking too much of too many things. Wishing someone could show me the way. Wishing someone could show me who I am. Who I need to be, what I need to do… It’s such a great purpose to pursue. A purpose much […]

If you can’t be a sun, be a star

A large majority of you that read my blogs are between the ages of 15-21 and with school right around the corner, I thought this blog was fitting. Six months before Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated, he spoke to a group of kids at a high school in Philadelphia on October 26, 1967. […]

My Promise To You…

There are many promises I have made throughout my life. Many, I could not keep. Not by choice. Some I have broke so hard that I wasn’t sure if I would ever heal from the impact. The hardest promises to let go of are the ones I had for myself. The promise of a new […]

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. She made mistakes, but always learned her lessons. Every chapter of her life was filled with richness. But one day, […]

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 […]

Gorgeous Imperfection

It’s not hard to be beautiful on the outside. Honestly. We can all put loads of money into outfits, make-up, hair, going to the gym, etc. That’s really all it takes isn’t it? I remember watching Oprah with my mom after school when I was a kid and she had these special episodes where people would […]

Meaning…

We spend our entire lives chasing dreams. We want to become someone, we want to have an impact, and we want to leave our mark. We leave comfort in search of it. Leaving a trail hoping one day we can look back and think it was worth something. We all want something in life that […]
