Left To Say

Silence surrounds us now. Where once words gushed through our mouths, flowing one on top of another, to be heard, to be understood. We wish we could unhear, wish we could go back to being dumb, as now we are mute. What’s there left to say? What’s there left to know? Are words even necessaryContinue reading “Left To Say”

Letting Go

It’s literally a question as old as time: How do we let go of things, even when we don’t want to? I would suppose that boundaries are a good preemptive measure. But who—at any age or emotional maturity level—is actually an expert at setting and maintaining all their boundaries? (If you are one of thoseContinue reading “Letting Go”

Intentionally, Unintentional.

Per what we’ve covered in the last few blog posts, I have very little idea about what I’m doing with my life; and that includes my dating life. This is partially due to the fact that a little over 7 months ago, my relationship of 2 years ended. I’ve been pretty candid about what allContinue reading “Intentionally, Unintentional.”

Health?

“Does this spark joy?” – Marie Kondo For the past 6 months of my life, I have been working hard to become “healthy”. That is such a broad statement so let me break it down. I have been working to identify unhealthy people, situations and emotions, and then rectify them by either saying goodbye orContinue reading “Health?”

The P Word: Plans

It really is funny how life turns out sometimes, isn’t it? What do you do when the person you’ve become looks nothing like what you expected, but maybe she’s better? I’ve always been the girl with a plan. Growing up lists, schedules and white boards were my best friends. I had anywhere from a twoContinue reading “The P Word: Plans”

To The Girl Who Lost Herself (But is Ready to be Found)

You start to feel invincible, like nothing could ever hurt you again. Like the trauma of your past will never again rear its ugly head in your dreams. It didn’t take me long to become addicted to that feeling. This is for the one who hasn’t been herself lately, and not in the cliche, Instagram inspirationalContinue reading “To The Girl Who Lost Herself (But is Ready to be Found)”

The Privilege of Perspective

“I always tell my mom, there’s no such thing as balance. Balance is the sum total of how you prioritize people, things and situations in your life…” As many of you know, I recently graduated college, moved back home and have no job prospects at the moment. By today’s standards, I should be preparing toContinue reading “The Privilege of Perspective”

The B Word: Boundaries

In a world where everything from messaging to food to even sex is all “instant”, how do we draw our hypothetical lines in the sand? As young adults we’re encouraged to give our all. Whether it’s throwing ourselves full force into a relationship, working our fingers to the bone at a new job, or pullingContinue reading “The B Word: Boundaries”

The 67%

According to a recent online poll I read somewhere, 67% of recent college grads don’t have a full-time job lined up for right after graduation. For once in my life, I’m a majority. So why is that every time I log onto Facebook, or Instagram, or even Snapchat I’m stuck having to click a half-heartedContinue reading “The 67%”
