This journey to one’s own reality is never an easy one. It weighs down heavily upon your bones and if you aren’t prepared, it will threaten to break you. But, you are not made of glass, and you will not break.
I have come to one very simple conclusion, if I am not able to accommodate myself and/or make me feel comfortable, why would anyone else ever bother to do the same?
The Beekeeper of Aleppo teaches us a very simple lesson, life can change at any given moment but it is the choices that you make which define where you go from there.

It gently, but quite obviously, gives the pregnant silence we all experience in our daily lives a set of subtitles. For all the unsaid feelings, the unimaginable circumstances, and the ways women have come undone at the seams, this book takes us deep into the American South and attempts to (and succeeds in) reminding us that despite our many differences, we all suffer at the same oppressive hands.

Sometimes a teacher, sometimes a student, but mostly caffeinated. This blog is a terrible attempt at writing out my thoughts - think of it as the 'comments, complaints, and suggestions' section of my brain. Nevertheless, I hope that some of these words will find a place in your heart and will stay with you even when I do not. If you'd like to get in touch, send me a message on Instagram or leave a comment on one of these posts and I'll get back to you at the best possible time.

I come from a home of slammed doors, clenched jaws, tight fists, and bated breath. I have spent a near 23 years waiting for the muted rage that runs through all of our veins to settle and yet, here we are, still slamming knuckles against the wall.

Does my face look big in this?

I have told myself, before anyone else could, that my face in its natural state is not enough. I've told myself that my nose is too big, my cheeks too plump, my eyes too small, but most importantly, that my face will only look better when it's not my face.

A Shifting Perspective

There's this feeling I can't really describe of being surrounded by people who love you enough to not force you to abandon parts of yourself to love them. They love you despite yourself and if anything, bring you so much closer to who you are by cultivating a space where you can just be. I am so grateful for my aunt and my grandmother who are, slowly but surely, bringing me back to myself.

Mindfulness Cards

Grounding and mindfulness exercises are key to our wellbeing and yet, they're things we prefer to use as buzzwords rather than a part of our daily life. Here are some ways we can start implementing them in our lives.
