be where your feet are

Be where your feet are. Enjoy the day. There’ll be a day where there won’t be another day.

esse quam videri

Here’s to chasing dreams, love, and a life full of laughter.
But most of all – here’s to being, rather than seeming to be.

i’m not sorry.

Life. It’s a funny thing, you know. We spend so much time trying to fit into the ‘perfect’ mold of who the rest of the world wants us to be. And yet, we’re damned if we do and we’re damned if we don’t. It’s like that old saying, “you could be the ripest, juiciest peachRead more

one (extra) day

Can you keep a secret y’all? Because I’ve got a big one. As traditional and old fashioned as I tend to be, there is something I can’t help but love and be so intrigued by about the unknown. Anything from astronomy to folk lore, “magic” and the paranormal to superstitions. One of my friends got aRead more

roots 

It’s a funny thing… You wake up one day and realize you’re there. The place you dreamed of, the place you worked your ass off to be, the place you never thought you’d reach. Yet, here you are. Maybe it hits you when you catch a glimpse of your reflection in the mirror and instead ofRead more

the world is still round

And just like that, another day is in the books. Despite my desperate pleading with the course of human nature, time still marches on. As I sit alone in my new apartment, the reality of this is setting in. Here I am, unwinding from my first day of my first full-time job (the beginning of my career, perhaps),Read more

standing on the shoulders of giants

As I struggle to find the right words, you’ll have to excuse me. It’s been a long week year. 2015 came in a whirlwind, promising to be full of wonderful memories, abound with love, riddled with excitement, that it would be”the best year yet!” But then again, don’t they all? In the true fashion of life, whileRead more

closing the chapter

Barely eighteen years old, I was merely a child looking for a home. After four long days of bouncing and singing and phenomenal women with perfect hair – I found so much more than a home. When I opened my envelope to see the words, “It is my pleasure to inform you that you have beenRead more
