The Sad Truth

We were born for greatness. Why is this such a sad truth?Because we ignore our greatness. We slowly begin to notice all the bad things and think that only when we’re perfect are we relevant to this world. Our greatness is no longer seen in the mirror, or in our writing, or in anything we see. Only…

So a funny thing happened. I’m not a t.v. person. I don’t usually like sitting down and watching shows that I’m not genuinely passionate about. However, waiting for a call, I decided to put on the television. I flip channels, which I  know is a pet peeve for some people. On show, Carrie Bradshaw from…

Who Do You Want to Be?

Throughout our entire life we are inspired by people. We like what they have to say. We like what they do. We like them. We want to be them. Suddenly you find yourself wondering if this person is doing what you’re doing. Maybe it gets to a point where you are doing things only if you…

Reality

A very good family friend of mine went missing yesterday. You see so many posts on Facebook and other social media sights about missing persons, but they all become so haunting when you know them, when you’ve seen those eyes look at you in real life. It feels different. It feels real. The thing is,…

He told her how to walk. He taught her how to be seductive. He pulled her into positions and told her how to be nasty. She quickly lost sense of who she wanted to be and how she wanted to behave. In wanting to please him, in effort to stop all potential wars between them,…

Writing

As evident in my lack of posts this past week, I have a hard time being motivated. Until I’m under pressure and have no choice but to do something, I usually find every excuse in the book not to. Writing usually isn’t a struggle for me to do – I enjoy it! But sometimes I…

Things Are Shaky

My boyfriend and I have been dating almost 11 months now, across an international border. We’ve had our highs and lows and it’s been worth every minute of it. We’re pretty mature, I more prudent than him. Summer was probably the best time for us because we didn’t really see each other more than usual…

Nothing Feels Right

This past week, as I’ve been replaying Miley Cyrus’ Wrecking Ball, I don’t feel as happy as I was previously. Perhaps it’s the season, but then again, Autumn is my favourite season! I should be happy. Nothing particular is wrong (save for my poor relationship with my mother, my shaky relationship, and my lack of belonging –…
