before it all began…

Before it all began I didn't know what to expect, I didn't know what the future would hold... and this is what I had to say..   (July 31, 2014) I can not believe I am about to move to a foreign country . Tomorrow I will be on a plane flying to Spain. Not just … Continue reading before it all began…

October 24 2014

I found this journal entry from October 24, 2014 and just felt the need to share it .... These past few days have been rough. Living in a big city it's very easy to feel alone and lost. I am constantly surrounded by people yet I just feel so alone. It's so hard being in … Continue reading October 24 2014

things aren’t always as they seem…

It's all about perspective, isn't it?  Social Media has now made it so that everyone out there on the internet, both friends, family and strangers alike can see the most glamorized version of our lives, they can see what we choose to portray.

If you follow my blog, you know I'm going through a bit of a rough patch and struggling a bit with my depression … Continue reading the road to recovery

living my best life (with depression)

There has seemingly been a theme to my recent posts lately, a theme of sadness ... a lack of motivation within me... a sort of difficulty adjusting to the changes in my life. (which thank you to all the the people who have reached out to me and told me it's okay, you've really helped … Continue reading living my best life (with depression)

the passing of time

One of the harsh realities of living abroad, is that the world does not stop spinning. While that might sound like a stupid and incredibly obvious statement to make (because of course, duh... time continues and the world does keep going no matter if I'm here or there)... sometimes the actual reality of this is … Continue reading the passing of time
