One Thing About Me


Here’s one thing about me: I’m a broken person, and I puzzle myself together every day.

True Self-Love


I believe that perhaps true self-love comes from letting go a part of yourself that you really loved but is no longer making you grow. It may be something self-destructive. It may be a habit that you thought was keeping you safe but really was keeping you away from your true long-term goals. It may be someone who you shared love with for so long but isn’t really the right person for you, and it’s painful, but you have to let go because that person’s part in you is no longer making you grow. You can’t compromise your own growth for someone else’s. You can’t compromise your own happiness just because someone sees theirs in yours. You have to go somewhere else when the environment that you’re in isn’t beneficial for your well-being and development. You have to replant yourself in a garden that’s best suited for your soul. You have to go all the way when it comes to taking care of yourself especially when it comes to protecting your own space and energy. You have to go all the way when it comes to loving yourself, and that means self-sacrifice and doing the best that you can to become who you always wanted to be.

How Hope Works


It’s weird how hope works. You’re at the pits of despair. You think you’re forever trapped, and suddenly something with a little light comes along, and you take it. You use it to find your way out of the darkness even though deep inside your heart you know that you’re forever lost but it’s okay. The little light you have beats the darkness. And the more you believe in that little light, the stronger it will get until everything becomes filled with love and light. Hope is not the light at the end of the tunnel. Hope is the light that you use to illuminate the tunnel. So always keep hoping because hope no matter how dangerous that thing is will be your miracle.


Esprit de famille

breathe in and breathe out.
you are surrounded by loved
ones today.
the food is good, and there are
so many stories to tell.
this is the season of expression.
this is the season of loving kindness.
be in love with your family.
be in love with your own flesh and blood.
breathe in and breathe out.
breathe in and breathe out and smile and laugh.
you are happy at this moment and this moment is your life.
