Yesterday was the first of November. The first day of a new month. For many of us, the first of November means the first day of holiday preparations as we look forward to relaxing with a cup of apple cider…

Letting Go of Unhealthy Friendships

Why do I write?

Have you ever wonder to yourself: why you do the things you do? Take my blog for example. Why do I have a blog? Why do I write about topics such personal and professional development, relationships, traveling, and a few inspirational…

The Person You’ve Become

On the journey towards greatness, it’s a given that we focus on the end goal. We think about what it would be like on top and how euphoria and victorious it would be. We fantasize about how things would be different…

Getting on the Right Path

It’s difficult what you’re doing… You try to undo all the hurt and damage, but it feels like it’s too much. You struggle as you maneuver through your hard wiring, trying to understand the reasoning behind your stupid decisions. You…

If I didn’t love myself

If I didn’t love myself, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I wouldn’t be able to push myself to try new things. I would learn that being comfortable is what’s most important and that self-growth doesn’t matter. I would…

What it feels like to think you’re falling in love
