Notice your energy: Do what is right. 

If you are unhappy, notice the energy around you- does it inspire you? Does it drain you? Does it motivate you? Does it intimidate you? I’m just now learning to be okay with saying ‘no thank you’ a little bit more and setting some boundaries. It’s easy to get carried away in our life- life …

It doesn’t matter.

It doesn’t matter where you go to school, what you major in or how many jobs you take on, although all that is relevant what really matters is how well you do it, how much effort you put into something. How much of your heart do you invest in the things you do? It matters …

Focusing your energy on positive returns.  

Today I saw some kids flying a kite, it was windy, the perfect weather to fly a kite. They were probably 16/17 on spring break and decided to spend the afternoon flying kites after baseball, I’m assuming, because one of the girls was dressed in baseball gear. It’s crazy how our decisions and the outcomes …

Weddings and Funerals

I went to a wedding last night (pictures below) and I overheard a man meeting his friend after a long time and he said, ‘it’s so nice to see you, of course we’d meet here, there are only two places you get together- weddings and funerals.’ It’s a while before we figure out what we …

Bet on it 

In every single field you come across, you will find yourself being denied of opportunities, of positions, of the ability to participate in activities, but that doesn’t have to be your destiny. It sucks when we are at the receiving end of it and it hurts when we are denied countless and multiple times but …

Find a Way: Find your Way

You can’t be what people want from you, you have to be what you want from you. No matter what your parents, friends or colleagues think you should be- you have to find your own way, you have to find your  own voice. At the end of the day, you have be happy with the …

A relationship with… you

I have to write to make sense of things, to make sense of plans, budgets, life and other things. It keeps me sane, even if I never look at the pages again, I like to jot notes down everywhere I go. It keeps my sanity and reminds me that ‘everything is gonna be okay.’ It’s …

Choose to be happy

Things happen everyday, things that upset us, things that don’t make sense. When things get shaky you have to remind yourself, life is not perfect but that doesn’t mean it’s not good. Life is full of hurdles, disappointments and set backs and even after we feel we have experienced the worse, there is always more …

Habits

Bad or good-they can drag us down or lift us up. The amount of times we go back to things that aren’t healthy for us shows us that we have the ability to create consistency in our life- it shows us that we can be pulled to something better just as we are drawn to …

Move

I was looking forward to writing this post all day- which is an exciting thing. It makes me wonder why we do the things we do and whether what we’re doing is ultimately what we want to do. What is something you look forward to? It’s Sunday and I know a lot of people dread …
