The Most Common Excuse

“I don’t have time” – Everyone

As much as we might hope or expect it to, life is not going to slow down so you can finally start your project, finish your book, take that trip or get some alone time. We all have the same amount of time in the day and we each have to learn how to get what we need in the time that we have. Or you don’t, which probably makes you feel overwhelmed and angry and eventually exhausted. You might start to feel like you don’t have a say in what you do because your time is owned by everyone else.   (more…)

“Am I Where I’m Supposed To Be?”

I know I’m not the only one who has ever asked myself this. This has been kind of sitting in the back of my mind for a while and I felt like now was a good time to bring attention to it. Lately I have become more aware of little anxious feelings I’ve been getting, mostly at night. It’s almost like I can’t breathe, and I mean obviously it’s not that I truly can’t because my breathing is just fine, but I can feel something on my chest so it’s just seems harder, you know? It’s nothing like the suffocating feeling I’ve gotten before that I talked about here, but I’m hoping by the end of this you’ll know what I’m talking about. (more…)

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.

What You’re Looking For

Here’s the thing. There’s a few things I have learned so far in my 21 years of life and some of them have been real hard to come to terms with. Some of them obviously being that you don’t always get what you want, Santa and the Easter Bunny aren’t real, that Justin Bieber is probably never going to love me, and lastly and most importantly was that there is nothing wrong with me. Yeah yeah I know it’s cheesy and it’s redundant but it’s true. There is nothing wrong with you or me and there nothing for us to be so upset at ourselves for. (more…)

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 There’s Not A Reason

I have always been someone who takes responsibility for my actions, I say sorry when I mess up, I always try to see different sides of situations and I always make sure to solve my own problems rather than leaving them a mess for others to clean up. We can all dedicate ourselves to being that great person all we want, but that doesn’t guarantee us that bad things won’t happen.
