There is More to Connecting

I find the brash evasiveness of strangers to be rather alarming. In one sense I want to be able to hold out open arms but in the same stretch I want to recoil. So many people act entitled to the point where your personal boundaries and limits are always tested. Nobody wants to take the…

My Journey into Motherhood

I just want to live an existence where my family is proud of me. It is hard to live a life in the shadows of those you hold so high. Scared to move forward out of fear that it will all come crashing down. I longed for a World that made sense. Where we were…

My Teenage Heart

Close your eyes. Imagine a time when your heart was young and somewhat free. A time before any and all this has ever happened. I can’t help but think that in some ways I have been apart of this all before. Not entirely or exactly but more just a hint. I always believed that somewhere…

Just Another Day

What is incredible to think is just how delicate our lives truly are. Where to some it is just another day to some it is the beginning of the end. Life ends in a second. With not interference. With no warning. One minute you are here the next minute you are gone. There is no…

Living a Life Oblivious

I like to think that my life has a deep soulful meaning. Don’t we all though. I love to dream and believe in a World that only exists in my mind. The day I stop believing in magic will probably be the same day I take my last breath. In a time where it feels…

A Game of Cat and Mouse

I see so many of my friends taking these tests to determine their level of privilege.¬† Most are scoring dramatically lower than they would have thought. Can I be the first to say how much I absolutely hate this Word. Yes I know my colour of my skin determines the way you classify me. You…

It has been a long journey. At times it felt like I would fall over from sheer exhaustion. Tired from the constant…

A Lifetime of Success vs an Eternity of Failure

“Dance, when you’re broken open.Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off.Dance in the middle of fighting.Dance in your blood.Dance when you’re perfectly free.” -The Essential Rumi, Coleman Barks I have spent my whole life trying to understand the actions of others. I have been broken to what I believed was beyond¬† repair. I have spend…

Who Would You Be?

Who would you be if you could be anyone? If you could live free of ridicule and judgement. Impervious to judgemental eyes as the waves of realization wash over you. The waves of your own eternal reality taking you to shore. Whose shore is it that you are searching for as you hope to one…

Leaving Behind a Legacy

Inner ward self reflection has left me wondering what is meant by those who want to leave behind a legacy. Simply put a legacy is an amount of money or property left to someone in a will. It is tangible. Left behind to comfort those that are left to pick up the pieces. So often…
