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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

A New Chapter

You have to make a lot of big decisions in life and no matter what you do, you are always going to end up hurting someone. The plan to move was always there. But I wasn’t into moving quickly. I have made excuses and delayed it. I have a dream inside of me. Everyday I […]

Don’t Ever Let Your Dreams Die

  “For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a nebula must collapse. So collapse. Crumble. This is not your destruction. This is your birth”. We all want something out of life. A good job, an education, a lifelong partner, children, a home, a dog… It can be anything. We […]

The Misconception with “Thinking Positively”

I had a blog planned for this month, but last minute I decided to write this. Recently, I heard someone tell me very bitterly, “I don’t believe in thinking positive. It’s a bunch of BS”. They may have thought that their words would affect me, perhaps question everything I stand for? And so here this […]
