“Two of the ultimate gifts that one can experience in life is: 1.) discovering your purpose; and 2.) celebrating it.” Growing up, I was sort of a romantic-idealist. I thought that life was similar to a Disney movie, where everything came easily and instantly. This made me overly optimistic and slightly naive in dealing with things.

No matter what happens to you, even how much you change, you can still be there for the people that you care for. Above […]

It’s a term usually associated with a past relationship.The truth is though, people move on from way more things in life- it can be a failed test, a stolen phone, a lost friendship, a humiliating experience, etc. The list goes on. Moving on is a test of strength. When you’re in the middle on moving on, it always seems like you’ll never be able to get past the finish line. It’s like you’re […]
