I’ve always been the behind-the-scenes type of person ( #introvertedlifestyle #bornthisway #quietgirlsrock ). I was the one who volunteered to type the group projects while another person presents the work… the one who would keep score instead of being on the kickball team. Even as an adult who continues to gradually shed my social anxiety…

Last night I started a prayer journal (again lol, and I came across a scripture that snatched up my senses and inspired me to write a new blog post (Thanks God!): Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; you are mine -Isaiah 43:1 I was reminded that I…

The roots of my inner struggles… my emotional fractures and ruffles… are grounded in the folds of my childhood. True to it’s nature, the seeds that sprouted my twisted roots were never visible to others. Instead, they were swiftly planted within my soul, one by one. One seed for every childish verbal jab from childish…

To “dare greatly”, according to Brené Brown, “means the courage to be vulnerable. It means to show up and be seen. To ask for what you need. To talk about how you’re feeling. To have the hard conversations”… I wonder how many people can agree with Brené… I wonder who is bold enough to call the…

I love Maria Shriver. Ten years ago, my love for the former Mrs. Schwarzenegger would have been completely based on the fact that she is the daughter of the fierce Eunice Kennedy (I’m not ashamed to say I had a Kennedy obsession in high school…who hasn’t?). But today, I love her not because of her…

“For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?” –Esther 4:14 (My FAVORITE scripture!!!) Isn’t it funny (in a…

I am sitting here alone in my space… filled with anxiety and trying not to scream as I’m drowning in emotional claustrophobia. At first, I couldn’t help but think, “Why am I feeling like this? I shouldn’t be in this mindset right now! I’ve come too far to be here!” It’s true, I’ve come mad…

Here’s a not-so-fun fact about Sheesh: I struggled with misinterpreting the possession of tangible objects as the possession of happiness. My idea of happiness was going to Barnes and Nobel after a stressful day and charge $100 on my credit card. It was shopping on Amazon whenever I felt like life was pointless. It was…

January 2018. This has been the time of year that so many people have been anticipating. The season in which we declare to have a fresh start on life. When all through our social media forums the mantra “New year, New Me” is emphasized in capitalized and bold letters. It is amazing how fixated so…
