I don’t know if words will ever do justice for the experience Kimia and her family gave us in Denizli, Turkey. My one and only Kimia. We met in LA in 2018. Ever since we met, her and her family instantly treated me (and anyone that Kimia loves at that) as if we are oneContinue reading “Our Family in Denizli”

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”

I think one of the coolest things about moving away from my hometown was I had the opportunity to create and find who I am, without preconceived notions of who I was while growing up. It’s proven our environments and the people who surround us influence our lives subconsciously. No matter how aware we areContinue reading “Explore Your Options”
A Reflection: Gaining Control of My Emotions
I’ve always hated seeing people weep of heartbreak. It’s like my heart automatically tumbles and weeps with them, leaving me with a heavy throat and lost words.

The morningContinue reading “A Reflection: Gaining Control of My Emotions”
I love my people.
Honesty is probably the most attractive thing in a person. When you’re honest, you bring safety. You create an aura full of nakedness. An essence of truth and openness.

Your wildestContinue reading “I love my people.”

It’s Award Show Season!!

Happy One Year, LA.
As clichè as it is, starting a New Year has always been refreshing to me. I enjoy the idea of a fresh start. Setting new goals. Tiddy-ing life up a bit by gathering the lessons you’ve learned and packing them up for the years to come. Re-assessing aspects of life that seem to be missingContinue reading “Happy One Year, LA.”
The War Against Reality
Picture this: It’s a quiet Sunday morning. You wake up feeling refreshed and at peace. You grab your morning fix, whether that’s water, tea, coffee, etc., and you hop in the car for some Sunday morning exploring. The sky is exceptionally blue with minimal clouds. The clouds that you do see are incredibly white andContinue reading “The War Against Reality”
Is chasing a far fetched dream worth being away from the best people in my life? Do I have enough knowledge and experience to make beneficial decisions? How do I get myself on track when I don’t even know what path I want to take? How do I believe everything’s going to be okay whenContinue reading “Comfortably Uncomfortable”
