It’s not uncommon to be walking around and engaging in everyday life with various unresolved feelings lying dormant. We have experiences that affect us in different ways and when left unaddressed, they set up tent and make a nice little home in our subconscious; just waiting for a chance – a similar situation or a quiet moment – to remind us of their existence.

The Beauty of Blankness

door-white

As I sit in my room typing this, I’m overwhelmed by all of the clutter in my room that I’ve been trying to sort out over the past year. By “trying to” I mean I’ve made half-ass attempts to make a plan to clean up and organize – but I generally give up before even really trying. I leave it to the ever elusive tomorrow. Just thinking about it stresses me out.

Hello 24 – Flexibility, Rock bottom, and welcoming the new

tumblr_ndi1cexmmt1rs8w78o1_500

Change comes whether you’re ready for it or not.

I feel like life has been repeatedly giving me lessons in change and flexibility. Both recently and just throughout my life in general. For some reason life wants me to get comfortable with the idea that I don’t have ownership or control over everything despite my desire to.

010

It took me a while to get here but I think I finally understand… some people just aren’t bangin’ with you. You’re just not chillin’ on the same wavelength and that’s okay.

You Are Not an Accident

self shame

I was sitting in my room one morning when this phrase came to me in a fit of inspiration. I was feeling down on myself about things I could be doing better, ways that I wasn’t living up to what other people wanted from me. How I wasn’t this enough or that enough. How I wasn’t successful enough after an expensive college education and doing everything that we are told to do in order to be successful.

The truth about that greener grass

tumblr_ntd8ehdygl1qapuajo1_500

Spoiler Alert if you haven’t seen the latest installment of the Divergent movie series, Allegiant (or read the books). I got a bit of inspiration from it when I saw it for Cheap Ticket Tuesday yesterday with my sis and cousin. I got to see a movie in theaters for $6.71!
