Pick me, choose me, love me

One of the reasons I used to be so insecure was because I always thought to myself, there's always going to be someone that's better than me. People are always going to love another person a little more than me, so why invest myself into someone that will never choose me? How could I possibly … Continue reading Pick me, choose me, love me

Societal standards

I want to talk about society's beauty standards and how they evolve throughout the years. So let's start off here. I have big lips. A lot bigger than the average and it's the first thing ANYONE has ever pointed out to me when we first meet. Growing up, people wouldn't even introduce themselves to me. … Continue reading Societal standards

I spoke too soon – my mojo is back

Recently, someone has been putting inspiration people in my life. For some reason, someone has me crossing paths with people who have had it harder than me and are somehow still making a new for themselves.

I’m not perfect

I'm not perfect and I've never claimed to be. There are plenty of things that I still need to work on about myself. For instance, I tend to be extremely impulsive. Whatever I'm feeling in that moment kind of becomes me. And none of that helps in situations that occur in my daily life. What … Continue reading I’m not perfect

How being a private person makes me vulnerable

I have always always been a private person. To this day, there are only a handful of people that know my grandma died 3 years ago. I'm not one to advertise how my daily life is going or tell everyone all the things that happen in that life. With that being said, people talk.

I believe

Hurtful words from the ones you love
