•A reminder that I never thought I would one day be standing on a beach in Indonesia. Here it is. Everything can be possible if you work your ass off for it•

Up all night. 


There’s something to be said about being able to stay up all night just talking to someone. Someone that you don’t mind being exhausted the next day because that time spent with them is the best part of your day. With totally opposite schedules you do anything just about anything to get that small window of time with them. It’s crazy how an afternoon brunch with friends can change your life completely. When you least expect it.

The (bitter) cold hard truth. (Pt.1)

Life wasn’t the same. Living with a man you once devoted your life to was difficult. We went 6 months with nobody else knowing we had split. People always told me they wish they were us. Finding “the one” at such a young age. It wasn’t true. I was living a lie. I wouldnt say I was unhappy. I was living with my best friend, he understood all my wants and needs but we just couldn’t get marriage to work. We grew apart. I couldn’t be happier for him. He found his voice. He knew what he wanted to be and what he wanted to do in life. What more could you want for someone you so deeply care about? Maybe we weren’t destined to be together but that doesn’t mean I didn’t care about him. Something wasn’t right. We didn’t fit like puzzle pieces. I was okay with it. This was just the first chapter of a new beginning. I had no idea where I was going but I knew it couldn’t be with him.
