What Do You Choose?

HAPPINESS is a CHOICE. LIFE can be SO amazing one moment. And then, PAINFUL as hell the next. It can be MESSY. And then, it can be MAGICAL. We can feel broken. So broken. And damaged. And then, we feel whole. Sometimes we rise. Sometimes we fall. The  . . .
Dear Self…

Dear Self…

Dear Self, I know you struggle sometimes. I know you often feel broken and burnt out. And I know I don't tell you enough, So here it is: YOU ARE WORTHY. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. YOU ARE LOVED. The world sees you even when you feel invisible. I’m deeply  . . .

Journey to Self-Discovery

Journey to Self-Discovery

I lost the only person whose love I never had to question. I lost the only person who made me feel less alone. In 2007, I lost my mum. And for years, I felt lost and went through all kinds of emotions you can possibly think of. I  . . .

Let It Go

I believe love is about letting go as both of them represent an opposite thing of control and force - trust. Trust is something that is hard for me to do. It's because diving into trust opens such wide horizons of freedom. And that's scary. Exciting but scary  . . .

I was woken up by a nightmare. And woken up to the stillness of the night. To oppressive silence.   No one to speak to. No one to cry to.   All I had, soon as I looked at my phone, was breaking news and there was nothing  . . .

Just Hear Me Out…

If someone says to me, "you deserve better", "you'll be fine", "other people have it worse than you" or "it takes time" one more time, I might decapitate myself or that person. I'm not sure. I'm undecided. Firstly, I know I'll be fine. I know I'll get over  . . .
Inner Child in Me

Inner Child in Me
