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 →

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. Are we that same person we started with? Have we changed completely in a way that coincides with our constant cell... Continue Reading →

What’s in a word?

What's in a word? From my perspective, a lot. I hear a lot of various exclamations throughout the day, face to face, on social media, and throughout my life.

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 →

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 →

BE YOU!

Following a date gone awry or a severed friendship, the abandoned often want to know what it was that obliterated the potential connection. From my perspective, it is unnecessary to know this information. The underlying reason why people want to know a motive is because they figure they can easily change it. They also tend...

Acting “as if”

Acting "as if".... ....is a theory that can automatically turn you into a writer, lavish entrepreneur,  or just an all around badass. Even  your favorite Xmen superhero, with powers you've always dreamed of, is on the table. (Okay, that last one is not official but I'm getting closer every day....oh, and I will get there). The more I... Continue Reading →
