I saw the new knockout film by Bradley Cooper starring himself and Lady Gaga, A Star Is Born, the other day and I am completely touched by it. Or, shook, as the youngun’s these days call it. I want to preface this by saying that there were so many important topics discussed and shown in […]

Welcome Back!

September 29, 2018

Everything I believed, and put on myself, about life, kept me from embracing the journey of getting to the beautiful parts. The true magic.

I am not naturally light. I am imperfection wrapped up in beauty. I am trodden down with anxiety. And if left to my own devices, my mind wanders into the constant depression that sits on the edge of my otherwise blissful life. Change doesn’t come easy for me. I cry in restaurants on the daily. […]
