Beauty

I like people who have a sense of individuality. I love expression and anything awkward and imperfect, because that’s natural and that’s real. Show yourself, do not pretend otherwise. I think it’s beautiful the way you sparkle when you talk about the things you love. And I like it when you disseminate, when you open…

Stillness

Our minds are quick to move from one thing to another. All throughout the day, we float between our fears of the future and our disappointments of the past, all while we’re stuck in the middle, trying to make sense of it all. Let stillness remind you that in this present moment, you don’t have…

Worthy

Just in case no one has told you lately : you are worthy of the same love you give. You bring value when you show up for others, and also, when you breathe deep and simply live. You long to find your place in thee world. You long to fully present. And I just hope…

Belong

I cannot tell you what the future will look like, but I can tell you that as long as you are breathing you belong in this world. And because you belong in this world, there will be places within it that welcome you. Perhaps it might not be with the group or position you thought…

Continue

You have come for far. You have learned to let go of what was not right for you. You have learned to step out of the boundaries of your worries, believing that in time, it all would be woven together beautifully. It has not been an easy road, but it has opened your eyes to…

People Who Are Good For You

There are people who notice you only when you shine, or when you fall into the darkness. Not the average you. Not the mediocre you. But the great you, or the not-so-great you. The people who are worthiest of your care are not those who only notice you at your best and worst but those…

In Between

In between where are are and where you want to be, there is endless, boundless peace. There is an opportunity to be still, as you find yourself in the gap between the past and the future, knowing that this is the space where you were called to come alive. And it’s okay if you feel…

You Have Permission

It takes a lot of energy to have hope for the future, so give yourself permission to ease into it. Give yourself permission to start small when it comes to looking ahead toward the future. Maybe looking forward to things isn’t so much about planning a perfect future, but about practising hope in that place…

Dear Whoever

The best view comes after the hardest climb. Many times when God isn’t changing your circumstances, it’s because he’s mostly concerned with changing you within the circumstance. We are all a little broken, but that’s how the light gets in. The soul inside me is stronger than the darkness that tries to overtake me. Sometimes…

Introvert

Yes, I’m an introvert. No, I’m not shy. No, I’m not stuck up. No, I’m not antisocial. I’m just listening. I’m observing. I can’t stand small talk, but I’ll talk about life for hours. I’d rather be home with a close friend or two that among a big crowd of acquaintances. Don’t scold me in…
