a simple reminder

Keep dreaming and never stop. Hold on to that spark, that bright light that made itself visible to you. You are one of a kind. It’s time you stop telling yourself that you aren’t.

twenty somethings

For a moment, I guess I was finding myself. I did so while believing I didn’t need any help or assistance from someone else. I was determined to go on this long journey through my twenties alone. Here are some things I wish I would’ve known. You simply cannot grow if you refuse to move…
