No More Dead Plants

I think when we all start pouring ourselves into something that actually breaths life, we're going to wonder why we wasted so much time on all the things that didn't.

A Home of Flesh & Bone

Even people who don’t claim the label of a cynic are still not quick to make a home out of flesh and bones or a moment in time. It is scary to lay down roots in someone else’s being and hope for the best.

Dear Anxiety, We Need To Talk

If anxiety was a person, it would be that person that periodically reminds you that your clothes fit a little tighter than they used to, or asks you how your love life is going when they know darn well you haven’t been on a date in at least six months.

Different Words For The Same Feeling

I don’t think being a writer makes me any better with words than anyone else, I think it just makes me more observant about the world, and more desperate to express how I feel about what I have found.

Take Two

Life doesn’t always offer us a fairytale, but sometimes we are lucky enough to get the chance to write a better ending, and to mend the hearts we have broken the best way we know how.

Less Like Ninety

I have so much left to do, and so much to still experience, and somewhere down the line I fed a lie to myself that I am supposed to have it all figured out when I haven't even experienced the best of what life has to offer.

Story Of A Girl

The writer in me no longer cares if I am someone worth writing a story about, because I have the gift and pleasure of writing the story myself.

Somewhere Between Lost and Found

When you're nineteen, sometimes you feel like you own the world, sometimes though, it feels like the world owns you.

I Still Care & I'm Not Sorry

Please know there is a reason you loved the hearts you loved, and it's okay to still care. You are not weak, you are not stupid, you are human, and sometimes we can't help the hands our hearts fall into.

My Apologies

I will apologize for some things, but I won't apologize for being human.

Don't Miss The Magic

We were never meant to miss the magic, we were meant to be a part of it.

In The Meantime

I don't know what it is that sets your heart on fire, and what things make you feel alive and important, but I know that if you aren't spending your time doing them, you're wasting your time.

Please Do Not Love Quietly

I want love that loves back, and loves back without hesitation. Love that is daringly, wonderfully, beautifully bold. Because love is desperate.

The Lightness of Living

 I was always a fan of love stories. However, my personal favorite is the love story between the creator of the universe- and me.

To Whom It May Concern

To whom it may concern; I am sorry, I forgive you, and its time I forgive myself.

Passenger Seat

Love might have once been red roses and diamond rings, but sometimes love might just be someone to let you ride in their passenger seat, ready for wherever life takes you.

Me and My Brain

I hate my struggle when it is loud and in my face, demanding that I feel it. I hate it. While my anxiety and my depression wage their loud war in my head and in my heart, my faith and my hope that one day my brain and I will be better friends, that hope is louder.

Love Does

 My greatest weakness became my greatest strength, and I pray for more moments such as those. Because love is honest, and love is vulnerable.

Room Full of Ghosts

The memories will always still be there, they just don't look so much like ghosts anymore.

Just A Moment

A lot can go wrong in a second. A relationship can end, a life could end, a heart could break. On the other hand though, a lot can go right in a second.
