What’s Yours?

The great Abraham Lincoln once said: “You’ll be as happy as you make up your mind to be now.”  It’s a fresh new year. That fresh new canvas for you to paint those three hundred and sixty-five days to come. I was very excited ending 2017. June to December was a movie, and if I…

There is Always Hope

Not many of you know this about me, but I live with a two-year-old. No, he is not my child. But that is completely beside the point or the moral of the story. I envy the way this child wakes up every morning with a smile on his face, ready to go the day’s excursions…

Beneath the Surface.

The older you get, the more you realize that it isn’t about the material things, it’s about the moments you can’t explain, the memories you will never forget, and our hearts and who they beat for… It’s about the moments that spring up on you and that summer you will never forget. About the heartfelt…

Be Fearless.

Yesterday marks one of the hardest and most strenuous days of my life. I learned to love and lose my soulmate. I learned the challenges that adulthood brings. I also learned that like all the wonderful stories, tales come to an end, we cry it out and then we grab another one. As I walked…

Dream: My Experience.

First, I apologize in advance for the typos, writing this was extremely difficult… Here’s the funny thing about dreams. They consume you, they open portals in your persona that you never though existed. They are the driving force to the unknown, they drive the car to the road trip, they pay the flights to the…

to the legendary class of 2016.

On June 2nd 2016 I made history. I lived through a day that was a complete experience and everything I dreamt it would be. I sat next to my best friends and as I switched my tassel from left to right, a dream came true. I am a graduated historian, my mom’s only child and…

The King of Rebirth

“Ay Amor Divino, pronto tienes que volver, a mi…” My mom’s voice consumes the hallway with the singing she starts her Sundays morning with. That long text message that makes everything better. The email that congratulates you to a new opportunity. The big sign that says “Congratulations Class of 2016” that I see in my…

One for sorrow, two for mirth…

This morning I had it happen again. I was actually all in my emotions of fear and I really didn’t know what to think, or how to react. Everyone who knows me, knows that I suffer from really bad nightmares and I find myself completely obsessed with finding meaning to everything. Last night I actually…

The Realness of your Reality

What defines reality? I ask this because reality is based off perception. Then perception is based of an individual experience, and every individual is made different. Meaning everyone has this different individualized, reality. How can you tell when something is real? The phrases and the questions tied to reality are often peculiar too: does if…
