Identity Epiphany

I have been trying to define myself all my life. There is one way that I want people to see me and it includes multiple facets, yet I fail at this all the time when leaving behind what I feel is my definition. For example, I came across the “List your Favorite Bands” page in... Continue Reading →

I saw the sign….

Symbols have always been incredibly important to me. I think it's my main draw to most jewelry and many things I have kept over the years. Going through all of my things that we saved from Hurricane Harvey has been so nostalgic and surprisingly a wonderful opportunity to stimulate memories I'd forgotten. What others may...

Being Mindful.

So I’ve been meditating every morning for a week and I have to say that it has had a very positive effect. I think part of it was because I was already in a relaxed place to begin with. A place I haven’t really been in very often for awhile now. First I want to... Continue Reading →

Identity

Identity. It encompasses our entire being. We question it daily and we question what others perceive it to be. Who we were as a child may or may not be who we are now.

What’s in a word?

I’ve spent years…YEARS worrying, thinking, and analyzing the way I look. What. A. Waste. When I was younger, I didn’t want to wear make-up. I think I subconsciously knew that make-up...

Friends ruined me….

My whole life, I've resolved that I would be a part of a group of friends that was convincingly, yet nauseatingly, close. Growing up, the television shows I watched painted a picture of what friends could be for me. I imagine it was similar to the picture Disney painted for romantic relationships that many other...

A Second Act

“There are no second acts in America.” –F. Scott Fitzgerald Since I’ve left Dallas, I’ve been thinking about regret and experience and what the difference is. I imagine they can be one and the same but “experience” just has a positive connotation where the word “regret” can be doused with guilt and unresolved feelings about... Continue Reading →

Never stop improving.

"Never stop Improving." This is Lowe's slogan and it's a good one. Although it is about home improvement,  I think it also appeals to our human nature to improve ourselves. The commercial and slogan itself challenges us to always grow -always be better. Many people choose to be something better than they currently are. This comes in... Continue Reading →
