    A New Light In My Path

    I have begun... I can feel the change within. Waking up early without an alarm, re-acclimating to a place that I thought I had left behind. Skipping the nicotine and replacing it with nutrition and yoga. This was almost automatic this morning. The change comes from inside your...

    In a few weeks time, I'm moving to a new city

    by myself to attend a junior college program for five years. It's a complete 360 change and I've worked hard to get into the school and part of why I wanted to go was to leave bad memories and bad people behind and move on. I'm happy that I got a chance at a new beginning but...

    My Thirties

    I had a rough transition from 29 to 30. Not because I was scared of getting older- I actually welcomed that part. What I struggled with was figuring out what was really important to me at this stage in life. I felt incredibly bored and under-stimulated with my 20-something...

    Again.

    And for the first time in a long time, I am encompassed by serenity. I am worth it. I will not waste my time with a liar. I will not waste my time with a person who talks down on me. Disregards my feelings. Degrades me. For a while I thought you were worth the emotional...
