  • To the person going through a ‘life crisis’

    These are trying times. Life is hard. Life is really hard… Where do we go from here? What do we do now? Do we just wait and see how things will play out? What is our purpose? Do we even have a purpose? Right now, the whole world feels like it is on fire, and […]

  • Boundaries

    Become aware of the things you will and will not accept, not only from others but from yourself. Overcome the challenges you face, so you can start believing that you deserve the things you want in life. Unpack the reasons why you think you are not entitled to more than the bare minimum.

  • To be okay or not?

Sometimes you feel okay, because you have your set routine and you know what you’re doing. Everything may seem fine to others, but deep down you may not feel alright. You’re tired […]

  • You’re Okay

  • Dear 2020,

    We rang you in like any other year. We had our resolutions written down, we had our best outfits on, fireworks were going off; we had all the right ingredients to welcome you. We were eager, anxious, but we were ready for all the greatness the start of a new decade could bring. Sadly, none […]

  • To the person who feels like giving up

    Sometimes it feels like no matter what you do, no matter what you say, no matter how hard you try, you can’t catch a break. You try to have a positive mindset, you try your hardest to not let one bad thing ruin your entire day, but sometimes it just isn’t enough. Maybe it feels […]
