    PerceptionI've been doing some soul searching

    lately, taking stock of my life, my goals, my wants, needs. It's been a tough but good experience, and I feel renewed and refreshed. I feel purpose and drive again. I lost my way for a bit. I suppose we all do at some point or another. Getting lost felt good for a while too. I...

    Because It Matters!!!

    Paradigm Shift

    I joined Experience Project several months ago, at the cusp of my transition to university. It's very humbling to read back on that first post that I made; I was a scared, confused eighteen-year-old, with no idea of her purpose or value. If I had the capacity to speak to my...

    I am truly working on the becoming the best me

    as possible. I am the type of person that has put others before myself and I am aware I do this, so, I have to find a happy medium somewhere between bettering myself and still being able to help people without the selfish factor coming into play. People tell me at some point...

    I'm focused on becoming a better me.

    Than lashing out and blaming others for the weaknesses I may have. i.e. temper. I have decided that I won't allow anyone or anything to have that much power over me to ruin my day or to alter the smile I place on my face... looking forward to becoming a better me...

    When I was in high school I went through some

    intense drama one summer and had a huge falling out with friends. I went through a lot of internal ups and downs but in the end one of the things I thought was I could either lay down and take it or I could be proactive and do something about it. So slowly but surely I started...

    Change

    The time for change has come. I ended a seven year relationship with a very bad boyfriend who I now realized manipulated and abused me to the point, I had no self-confidence and was honestly contemplating suicide. The heart break still hurts. I miss him like crazy, but I would...
