What I Wish I Knew In High School About My Skin

20-Jan-2015

High School….how I loved you and how I hated you. Everyone was awkwardly growing into their own skin while dealing with school work, friend drama, heightened emotions, and for a lot of us, bad skin. I wish I could say I didn’t care, but I definitely did. My skin wasn’t the WORST, but I definitely had multiple zits camping out on my face 24/7.

Surviving And Blossoming After a Negative Attack On Your Core-Self

16-Dec-2014

Have you ever questioned your core-self because someone placed a seed of doubt in your mind? All it takes is one negative comment and who we are as an individual can quickly unravel. Personally, I have had this happen many times in my life and even recently. I am a very energetic, positive, happy and caring person and I love being ‘high vibration’, it’s who I am. Yet, on many occasions, I have been ridiculed and put down for being who I am. I have been told: “You’re such a cheerleader”, “How can you always be so happy, it’s unrealistic”, “Are you on drugs”, "Only children are this happy", and other negative comments. These deeply hurt because all I want is to be happy and for others to be happy around me, bring each other up and want the best for each other no matter what. Sometimes it's hard to stay positive and upbeat when my positivity is attacked and challenged. There always seems to be one or two people that look down upon my core-self and will do and say anything to make me question and doubt myself.

Last Thoughts on The Lions Mouth Opens

09-Dec-2014

I was in this Lucy Walker directed documentary short film deliberately to illuminate and eradicate by bringing it into the light a particular torture that we all face in the potential of illness. I sewed my vivid ideas and sweetest of dreams together in it because I knew the lions mouth was closing and I didn't want to believe the lie that we are all alone. I didn't want to believe the lie that we die frightened.

It's Okay To Be Lost

27-Oct-2014

I believe that the one thing you really need in this world, is passion. The determination to get up in the morning, the commitment to make it through the day, and the perseverance to do it all over again. For me, these three things, form passion. It doesn’t matter who you are, or what you are passionate about, but as long as there is something in the world that matters to you in such depth that it has the ability to make you feel happy and fulfilled, life will always seem more worth living. There will be a reason behind everything you do and you will live each day trying your best to get a little bit closer to your end goal.
