Letters

“I am not afraid, I was made for this.” – Joan of Arc

Welcome to my letters. I write these to those who feel it. Sometimes feeling someone else’s emotions can teach you a bit more about yourself. Please read them gently, as they are to everyone.

An Ode to CA

What a contradiction – to love being a homebody just as much as loving exploring. If there’s one thing this temporary move to Europe has taught me, it’s that I love having my own space. One that I’ve customized to my liking, that I’ve made comfortable for me, that embodies everything I find cozy, fun,Continue reading “An Ode to CA”

A Letter to the Hero

Being a person who is the life of the party is always a blast.Being a person who is everyone’s go-to for trauma dumping is flattering.Being a person everyone calls for emergencies is commendable. But who’s the hero’s hero? (Besides their grandpa?) Who’s comforting them? (Besides their cat?)Who’s rescuing them? (Besides 911? But even they pickContinue reading “A Letter to the Hero”

Thank you, 2021.

This year was truly inspiring. Through a whirlwind of emotions, it’s given me insight on a lot. It’s reminded me of the rewards of consistency. It’s taught me how to generously give my time. It’s encouraged me to be blunt. In my boundaries, my desires, and my non-negotiables. It’s made me to be courageous. Bold.Continue reading “Thank you, 2021.”

Validation Victims

Constant validation is a hard thing to wrap around my mind. Why does something always have to be said in order for it to be felt? Validations happen in moments, there’s not always something to tell. But the constant need to be told exactly how one feels and what they think is crippling. It’s likeContinue reading “Validation Victims”

A Letter to Not Hold Onto

This is a letter to anyone who is holding on to something that is weighing them down. To anyone who feels that constant tightness in their chest because they’re holding on to something that makes them anxious, sadness, anger, emptiness, or regretful. I stumbled across this quote – what a great reminder that it’s okayContinue reading “A Letter to Not Hold Onto”

Hi, this is for you.

This is a letter to anyone and everyone who I have encountered in my life. You are my friend. No matter how deep our relationship is, you are my friend and I care about you. Even if I don’t personally know you, you’re my friend and I care about you. If you need someone toContinue reading “Hi, this is for you.”

Thank You, My People.

It’s cliché – but it’s true.   People enter our lives, some stay and some go. Each one contributes a lesson, a blessing and an experience in life nonexistent without them. People are such an important role in life that allow emotions to thrive like never before. Emotions that make us vulnerable. Emotions that makeContinue reading “Thank You, My People.”

A Letter to Myself.

This is a letter for the girl who is struggling. The girl that just can’t seem to do anything right. The girl that feels like her world is crumbling down. This is a letter for the girl who wants to break down and give up. Don’t do it. Don’t give up. You are stronger thanContinue reading “A Letter to Myself.”
