Accepting Happiness

Happiness is a whirl of emotion, a static form of energy. Many times when you’re feeling happy it’s shadowed with a little bit of nerves. It’s almost as if you are standing on the edge of a cliff overlooking the beauty of a mountains and yet steps away from its depths. It’s a wondrous emotion…

Change, a word that hold so many emotions, thoughts, and actions. A part of us welcomes change and yet sometimes always makes us wary of its presence. Change has a way of gradually welcoming itself or sometimes it just slams into our face like a distracted bug. Here is what the May & June 2016…

Accepting The Body

Imperfection creates originality. Our bodies are our homes that we are born into, our own personal temple. We create alters within us, some days we honor ourselves and other times we forget to. We take part in a routine of ridicule. Instead of confession we place judgment onto ourselves. We take our bodies and break…
