On misfortune and uncertainty.

In life, there will be moments of sadness and heartache, and situations with explanations beyond our understanding. That is life. C’est la vie. These dichotomies are what make living on the spectrum of color, joy, wealth, and fortune worth it. Tomorrow’s uncertainty is today’s ambition. Fear of the unknown only hinders a person from experiencing life for all that it can offer. Freedom is living bold.


Ambition wakes me up at 5 AM.
Ambition tells me, “I can.”
Ambition pushes me to sweat.
Ambition tracks my progress.

Ambition is 100 push-ups before bed.
Ambition is reading on my free time.
Ambition is living vegan.
Ambition is practicing yoga before I even know what day it is.

Ambition is living up my dreams despite life’s obstacles.
Ambition leads to a life full of fulfillment.

I want to be creative,
So I create.
I want to be loved
So I love
every chance I get.

Coming Back from Holiday in Spain, France, Italy, Croatia, and Montenegro.

A letter to the friends I have lost

When i think of you, I still love you dearly. 
Though we may not have spoken in a while, and while we may never get a chance to speak to one another again, the memories I’ve shared with you still resonate strongly with me. You are a part of me. The relationship we shared shaped me into the person that I am today. I thank you for that, and, while, unfortunately, our paths have deterred from one another, know that I’ll always have love for you.
