The Happenings of Late

// I have been missing Mackenzie.

// I enjoy repeatedly drowning myself in a sea of written words and words to be written.

// I have fallen in love with dried fruit (apricots, raisins, figs: you name it, I probably eat it).

// I have wanted to be inspired and inspire others but I think I must go on an inner journey of self-discovery first.

// I've decided that perhaps this blog has wavered and I may take some time to shut down and reevaluate its purpose (which means I may not be posting for a while...).

// I haven't gone on break from blog designing yet. I think I'm afraid to give myself more free time.

// My writing class is swiftly approaching and due to my broken laptop, I may have to borrow one of my older sister's many devices (thank you, God, for blessing me with a generous older sibling).

// I created a small writing inspiration board, for my room. It has quotes and encouraging words scribbled onto bright pink index cards and I must say I love it very, very much.

// My hands smell like salmon, due to helping my mother in the kitchen. We're trying out this new diet thing and it means we're "eating clean" (no wheat, no dairy of any kind, no added sugars, and the list goes on). I don't like the blandness of the diet, but I do feel better. I feel energetic and perhaps, happier.

// I enjoy feeling, thinking, and speaking in a "philosophical" way. I think I want that to be my "tone" when I write.

// S.A.R.K is awesome (go here, please).

// And now, I shall end with a quote; "It's time to say goodbye, but I think goodbyes are sad and I'd much rather say hello. Hello to a new adventure." -Ernie Harwell

Thank you for reading. <3 (photo via pinterest)

How to Begin Your Self-Love Journey This Year

When I originally had the idea for this piece of writing I’m about to share with you, I was in a place of transition. I didn’t know my place in the world, I didn’t know if I was worth it and I certainly didn’t feel like I could love myself. Here I am almost a year later, an example of how this works - if you choose to put it into practice. You can improve and learn to love yourself. You can take the steps that bring you into a better place.

I won’t say it was easy and I certainly won’t say I had overnight success, but when you learn to fight your battles one at a time, you’ll be able to look back and see how far you’ve come.

Are you ready to take the first step?

Self Love: Step one I have always been a timid person. I’ve always had trouble keeping the standards I have for myself something below what I deem “perfect”. I enjoy discipline and when I don’t know what to do or my world is shaken, I’m hard on myself.

That’s just who I am.

With that said, I've always felt like I was not a…

A Love Letter

To my dear, blooming Rose - Attached to this letter is not only my love, but my gratitude, thankfulness and a small box of decadent dark chocolates. I would've had flowers delivered too, but no measly plant could ever compare or express my feelings toward you.

Ahh, my dear. You are my truest bundle of joy. It does not matter what mood you are in - you light up my day in the most wonderful of ways.

Your smile makes the sun jealous. Your embrace makes me feel full. Your laughter - so thick and loud - makes me want to laugh too.

What I love most is when you are truly and purely being yourself - because that's who you're meant to be.

With much love and kisses blown with a wink,
Your Secret Admirer

PS: Maybe we could share those chocolates later, eh?

When you need some uplifting, write yourself a love letter. Be silly and positive. Analyze yourself. Amp up your best qualities. De-sock your feet as you write and wiggle your toes as your write (then put your socks back on b…

Being productive can be hard, especially when you have too many things balanced on your plate. Most of the time, you don’t know where to start.
