Around the Block

A couple weeks ago, I was trying to finish a blog post that I had been excited about for weeks, but then when I sat down to write it, and later to finish it, I couldn’t think of a single example or word that I had been wanting to use. My mind was blank. I … Continue reading Around the Block

It's full of distractions, doodads, books, ideas jotted quickly on napkins and post-it notes, lists of shows and movies I want to watch, pictures of my fiancé … Continue reading Prioritising Creativity

Healthy Place defines mental abuse as “any act including confinement, isolation, verbal assault, humiliation, intimidation, infantilization, or any other treatment which may diminish the sense of identity, dignity, and self-worth.” This can occur in so many different … Continue reading Anxiety and Abuse


Technically I’ve already written about yearly goals. But this isn’t just about the resolutions and goals I have for this year. It’s about the resolutions and goals I have for my entire life and what I’m doing now to work towards them. It's about pursuing my dreams and thriving in every moment along the way, … Continue reading Pursue
