Dear Mikey,

Today is September 10th, by the time I post this it won’t be your birthday anymore, but as I sat down to write I couldn’t keep my mind from going back to you. You would have been 20 years old tomorrow, I can only imagine the man you would be becoming.

Reminder

I wanted to write this post and not exactly have a topic, kind of just to chat with you guys. (more…)

Patience

You know when life feels like it’s just on repeat? Nothing is new or interesting and the same thoughts going in and out your mind and you’re doing everything on your to-do list but the list repeatedly stays the same. Well, at least for me that has been the feeling lately. I know what I want to achieve but not sure what exactly I’m going to do or what exactly my next move is. I don’t have a map planned out of what to do to reach all the places I want to be. I’ve been stuck on that for some time now, it’s worrisome to not know if each decision is the right one or if each step you take is closer or further from where you’re trying to go. I have also come to the conclusion that that’s okay and that each wrong decision is one step closer to the right one and that I will get to where I’m trying to go as long as I don’t stop looking for what that is.    (more…)

When Life Flips Upside Down

Life is always unpredictable. You go to sleep one night hoping that tomorrow will be a bright day but the next morning brings to your worst day. You think that days can only get so bad but then life shows you that it can get worse. You wonder constantly what you did to deserve this, and you never get any answers. You can only take so much until you feel like this feeling is all you have. Life is unfair. You can’t find anyone else to put the blame on. You cant even blame yourself most of the time. Things just happen.
What we CAN do, is try to remember a few things.   (more…)

Lessons Learned

Considering it’s the last day of the year I think now would be a good time to reflect on 2017. This year pushed me to my limits emotionally and mentally, I went through and overcame things I didn’t think I would ever have to. But this year was also the best year I’ve had so far. This year I started caring about myself and realized that I have a lot more control over my life than I thought I did. Whether 2017 was your year or not, I want to share some things I learned that I hope will help start your year off

Losing Yourself

Feelings are the strangest things I think, they’re these things you feel in your chest and your heart and you can’t control them. And sometimes they hurt, sometimes we know why and sometimes we don’t, but that doesn’t change the fact that we feel them.  (more…)
