simplicity and humans don't mix.


simplicity is something human beings cannot be characterized by. we are anything but simple - in fact, we are one of the most complicated navigational terrains this world has come to see. there are so many factors to take into consideration when it comes to us - too many to name without excluding giving off the impression of generalization. but i will say there is an important one, one that should be acknowledged before you take that first step into the bodily territory of another being.

know that we are temporary in our ways, and that we all change without knowing. who you want to know now will not be who they were as the future becomes the present. so hold on to your days together because people change. memories don't.

thank you for reading. <3

  1. So true and sad. Like, I used to be friends with four people and they used to not be friends, but now it's the opposite; I've drifted apart when them and the four of them drifted closer together. In fact, one of them moved away and when they were asking each other where he went, I was the one who told them where he went (since I kept in touch with him) and they gave me this weird look. And in fact, if you're an INFP (like I am, perhaps you are one? I dunno. Kinda getting that personality type vibe from you though. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, searching up Myers-Brigg personality test) we are the most misunderstood out of everyone.

  2. True. We're anything but simple. Constantly changing and picking up things from out surroundings. Beautiful post :)

  3. Agreed. Humans are as complicated as they come. The word is, in fact, a contradiction to us.
    Great post :)

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…
