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. […]

What We Leave Behind

There are so many feelings but no words. I don’t want to explain it. I want to run away from it and never have to feel this again. My life is always screaming at me. It’s so loud that sometimes I can’t hear anything else. There is always something I need to understand. Something I […]

Another Year Older…

My birthday is in August and every year around that time I try and find a few moments to reflect on the year and what I have taken from it. The days that have passed me by seem to have all merged together and become all the same. However, when I look back – everything […]

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 […]

The First Time I got Stitches…

Was today. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve fallen since being diagnosed with a muscle disorder. Too many times to count. Most of the times I can walk away with a little bruise here or there. Sometimes I have to go to the emergency because I tore a ligament or something. Today, I […]

January 1, 2017

And just like that, 2016 is done and gone. The first thing I felt was relief. This year was a testing one. A true testing one. And I thought to myself, why should I feel relieved? I was given a year that many did not get, many did not survive through. And I feel relief […]

Settle…

It is the oldest story I know. One day you are simply a child, exploring and finding things that interest you. Then without any kind of notice, today turns into yesterday. And this becomes your life. It is one of the saddest stories and I hate telling it. I hate it. Settling. The word makes […]

Not all those who wander are lost

I have always been a “wanderer”; thinking of what could have been and what may be. What would have happened if I had not come to Canada? What kinds of friends would I have? Would my character still be the same? What if I went to a different school or moved to a different city? […]
