Again/Ohio

It always happens when you least expect it, when you intentionally plan for it not to happen. I suppose life has a way of doing that…

Me: I’m going to commit to being single.

Life: Oh yeah, well take this !

Again/Las Vegas

I went to Vegas this past weekend for a wedding with one of my oldest friends and had a good time. My sistermom and her best friend were also in Vegas so we got to spend time with them as well. Sometimes I have to remind myself that I am quite rich in terms of family and friends; I’m surrounded by some of the most amazing people in the world and I’m so grateful.

Again/submerging

As a writer you may already know there are many unfinished best sellers lying around weather on your laptop in your notebook or simply in your head. This past year I have actually completed my first book. I’m in the process well I can’t really say in the process because I haven’t started but I’m at a point now where I need to start editing the book. I’m having a hard time finding the motivation to do so. I use this site called booksie.com, it’s a place writers can share their writing and receive and give feedback. I posted a handful of chapters just too see if I had a good story line. I received a plethora of feedback, most correcting my writing, while I was thankful it was also discouraging. I know as a writer you have to have tough skin, even the best of writers make mistakes. I think at this point I need encouragement. I’ve always been so private with my writing, but I need to put myself out tbere, how else do I expect to grow.

Im gonna create a page and start posting some of the chapters of my book and I’m looking for all the feed back, criticism and encouragement I can get. I am going to fully submerge myself into committing to this book and  I thank you in advance for contributing.

Again/babies

There’s something about being around a baby that just makes me feel safe, it give me a purpose in that moment that overrides anything else.

Again/2015

On a normal occasion for New Years Eve you would find me surrounded by friends and alcohol and dressed like I’m planning a paparazzi attack. This year you found me alone in my self made fort decorated with holiday lights and very cool if I might add, but still surrounded by alcohol and dressed like it’s my honeymoon. I spent New Years Eve alone In my home with the lights off and the countdown on television and I couldn’t have been happier with my decision.

I’m not really one for making New Year’s resolutions it’s just a bit too mainstream and unrealistic for me, but I can say one of the things I’m looking forward to this year is finding comfort in my own solitude. I want to make an investment in myself, I want to make sure before I fall in love with anyone else I’m in love with me and in order to do that I have to get to know myself. The ins and outs, the good and the bad, my fears and nightmares. Even the things that I’ve tried to forget.

By the end of this year I want to have made a personal transformation. I want to feel like I know myself better than anyone else knows me, I want to feel like I love myself unconditionally.  I want to genuinely enjoy my own company. I wish I could say I’ve already accomplish these things but if I am to be honest I’m 23 years old and I feel like there’s a disconnect between who I am and who I portray; but if I’ve learned anything  this past year its awareness is key, and I’m aware there’s a disconnect and that’s the first step to reconnecting.
