Time….

One of my biggest fears is that time is running out. Like I don’t have enough time left, whether it is to do things I like, spend time with my friends,family, SOs, do something new, gain new experiences, travel and see new places or all of the above. Sometimes I feel like this is it.. Tomorrow may or may not come. And all this coming from a girl who has always has a five year plan during my teens.

Now, there’s Only hope for a better tomorrow, that whatever it brings will be beautiful and meaningful and that it too will lead to making me who I am going to be..

The thing I am most certain of is “now”, this moment where I’m sitting and furiously typing away on my computer, trying to put my feelings into words. Before I go, here’s my new favorite poem by Lang Leav.. Hope you like it too..

And before it takes away some more, maybe we can all just go out there and do whatever makes our hearts sing!!

Until next time,

Happy Sunday… <3

9 Simple Steps to Mindful Breathing and Rest

(Self-Kindness)

Mindful Breathing

  1. Have somewhere you can sit that is comfortable for you and quiet.

  2. Sit.

  3. Where possible, make sure you sit up as straight as possible but without forcing your posture too much. We’re wanting relaxed and not tense.

  4. To start, take 5 extra-deep, slow breaths, in and out.

  5. Allow EVERYTHING, absolutely EVERYTHING, to drop away from you for just a few minutes. This is YOU time. You deserve it.

  6. Continue to breathe gently and slowly, paying attention to the sensation of the breath as it enters and leaves your body. Simply observe each single breath as it happens, whether you focus on the rise and fall of your chest, abdomen, or on the sensation of the breath at the tip of the nostrils. Really feel what it is like to breathe, without any need to change your breath. Just watching it as…

18 Staples To Make Your Wardrobe Perfect

Originally posted on Thought Catalog:

1. Classic black denim, because whether you worshipped the cool rock girls in high school, or simply need something you can throw on in the morning without a second thought — or both — few things will ever have your back like black denim.

2. A go-to lipstick for days when you need to pull it together. Because that one color that works on your otherwise bare face exists, and it is worth hunting down.

3. A style idol. You can be a Beyonce disciple or worship the Cool French Girls of years past, but whatever your muse, sometimes you need someone to point you in the right direction (if not for your actual look, then maybe just the vibe).

4. The right-fitting bra. Go to a professional shop. Get fitted. It. Will. Change. Your. Life.

5. A favorite pair of sunglasses. For days when you need to hide behind…

20 Things You Should Know About Dating An Independent Girl

Originally posted on Thought Catalog:

1. We need alone time. A little each day and more than a little on other days. It doesn’t mean we’ve lost interest in you.

2. We don’t mind if you don’t call or text us every second. We like it. We won’t be contacting you either. That said, if you’re late, don’t keep us guessing as to when you’ll show up as we’ll make other plans.

3. We can clean up our own messes. We’re not waiting around for you to fix our problems.

4. We are perfectly fine doing chores, running errands, and exercising by ourselves. If you want to join us, we’re glad to have you along, but don’t talk to us while we’re in the zone.

5. We sign up and attend charity events, races, and cultural exhibits on our own. We don’t need a date to feel comfortable at these things. Set us loose in…

QOTD: Beau Taplin

Since yesterday, this is all I have been feeling… Sometimes being strong, tough and stubborn takes more life out of you than if you just lean on someone. I wonder if its easier to show someone my vulnerability and let them help me… Its true what they say, the universe gives you exactly what you’re feeling, one of the first things I read this morning was this post by Beau Taplin, an Aussie author whose words I have fallen in love with..

Hope you like it too…

You cannot always be a storm of a person.
It is utterly human to be occasionally fragile.
It does not give your sadness power to
admit that sometimes your hands shake like
houses in a hurricane when you think
of where you’ll be two years from now.

17 Truly Beautiful Reasons You Should Never Give Up On Love

Originally posted on Thought Catalog:

1. Because you don’t know when it’s going to happen to you. It could happen tomorrow, it could happen next week, and it could happen in twenty years. But when it does happen, you don’t want to have become so cold-hearted that you can’t receive it.

2. Because if you’re honest, wanting to be numb to the pain that past loves have caused you (or the pain that comes from a lack of past loves), has not made you any happier.

3. Because the different kinds of love you are meant for in your lifetime ought to work alongside each other. If you close yourself off to one, it will probably affect them all.

4. Because even though wanting love can hurt, and it makes you vulnerable and leaves you open to be wounded, it still makes you stronger; the alternative makes you weaker.

5. Because as long as you’re…
