Desperation

It was on this cold Sunday morning that I was deep in thought about my life and my purpose. I thought about everything that got me to this exact spot. Let me start from the beginning… When I was applying to universities, I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted to do with the rest of […]

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 […]

Going Back in Time…

As I write this, the world around me is completely quiet. I am only left with the silent beats of my own heart. I want to just go to bed and sleep all my thoughts off but my heart won’t allow me. It’s speaking to me so loudly tonight. I am the only one who […]

27 things I’ve learned in 27 years

Birthdays are a funny thing. As a kid you can’t wait for your birthday. You get cake and presents! As a teenager it means getting your drivers license and buying alcohol. But then you get older and suddenly birthdays aren’t fun anymore. Now all you have to look forward to are grey hairs and wrinkles. […]

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