Time for Change

Is life making you busy or you are using LIFE as an excuse not to do the things you need to do? I made an effort to start this blog, and I was consistent with semi-regular postings. When things became a bit more demanding but still manageable, I rode that busy train to the point where I didn’t post anything for two weeks. I did, however, find time to scroll through Instagram in the name of clearing my head. I was allowing this sluggish nature to get the best of… Read more Time for Change

My Dearest Daniella (letters to my younger self)

“My Dearest Daniella, With your face to the sun and dreams bigger than your smile. Five years feels like yesterday and many moons ago at the same time. That independent, smart and brave eighteen year old girl determined to change her generation’s pattern and discover herself. As I reflect and tears roll down my face, I want you to know I am proud of the woman you have become; you earned it. There was no way of knowing where the trajectory of your life would take you but ultimately it… Read more My Dearest Daniella (letters to my younger self)

Happy March!

It’s been two months since the beginning of the year and it’s time to check in: How have you been? Is your (mental, physical, spiritual, emotional) health ok? Have you been saying your positive affirmations? Have you been remaining positive? Have you been accomplishing the goals you have set for yourself? Have you been consistent with your objectives? Have you been blessing the world with your magic? Have you been loving yourself wholeheartedly? Have you been tuning out the negativity? Kudos to you if you have. I’m happy that you… Read more Happy March!

Words Hurt as Well as Sticks and Stones (Part II)

So many times we say things about ourselves that are so demeaning, and we wonder why things are so unfavourable for us. We put negative energy in the world to multiply and follow us. Even if it’s a joke; the words are still released in the same way. It’s one of the reasons you are to blame for your misfortunes. Be kind to yourself; praise yourself for all the things you have accomplished. You are terrific, and it is time you realise the impact your presence has on the universe.… Read more Words Hurt as Well as Sticks and Stones (Part II)

šŸ„³Celebrating MilestonesšŸ„³

If my blog were a baby, she would be at the point where she is more aware of her surroundings. She would try to talk, producing sounds unfamiliar to me, and mimic everything I do. We would both have that love and trust surrounded by unlimited happiness. Six months ago, I decided to be brave enough to publish my first post publically and chose to keep the consistency. It was such a nerve-wracking experience as I was scared of the rejections I would face when I made myself vulnerable by… Read more šŸ„³Celebrating MilestonesšŸ„³

My Poetry Challenge

I thought it! I said it out loud! I did it! As part of my theme this year, I wanted to push myself towards writing more poetry. I convinced my friend that we should do a writing challenge; we would alternate picking themes for the month, write at least three poems and send them as voice notes or messages to each other. My friend agreed, and we went on our 2020 journey. The theme for January was “Having the Strength to Let Go,” decided by yours truly! At the end… Read more My Poetry Challenge

You Are What You Call Yourself

I have this friend that continually calls me a girl even though I remind them that I don’t identify with that word. They didn’t seem to understand the idea behind it, but I felt the need to explain my stance to prevent any further confusion. So the story goes like this: “I made a conscious effort not to refer to myself as a girl anymore under any circumstances. Most people thought it was weird, but I connected the word girl with childish and finite things, and I didn’t want to… Read more You Are What You Call Yourself

My Bare Minimum Checklist

As part of “The Year of Mass Holistic Expansion” I set out some goals that I need to complete as part of the bare minimum to accomplishing this year. It started as a challenge I gave to my friends, new year resolution of sorts, but I decided to turn them into affirmations so that I can attract the necessary steps to get to the next level. I am going to become more spiritual; I am going to become more consistent with the tasks I set for myself; I am going… Read more My Bare Minimum Checklist
