Grandparents: A Letter to My Future Child

Dear Future Child, I wanted to teach you a lesson about grandparents. A lesson that will make you run into their arms every time you don’t get your way (or when I refuse your dictator requests for more popsicles, like I did often to my mother). Because believe it or not, grandparents can be your closest ally, after your father and I of course.   You wouldn’t believe that amount of support you already have, my dear child. Between your parents, grandparents, and even great-grandparents you are immensely loved and treasured. You will be our greatest joy, and greatest worry. … Continue reading Grandparents: A Letter to My Future Child

Birthday Joy

Let me begin by informing you of the randomness of this post idea. My birthday is in November (Scorpio season is the best season), so this isn’t some upcoming occasion that I had on my mind. And yet, I’m always thinking about birthdays- not just mine, but my family and friends’ too. I have every birthday in my planner, and enough postage to send homemade or funny store-bought cards (usually of puppies or old women) to my loved ones. Today, I was reminded of this birthday appreciation because I heard someone say, “Valentine’s Day is my second favorite holiday, after … Continue reading Birthday Joy

Ghosts of The Past

I went home over this past weekend, and a few things happen when I go home. I eat way too much. I somehow manage to pick apart my already-bare closet and leave a tornado of evidence. I always go through my old things, even though I know this is a danger zone to proceed with caution only. And yet, I never take mind of my own warning as I frivolously flip through old notes, pictures, letters, and every other old memory that I keep tucked away in a shoebox and out of mind. These shoeboxes used to be my own … Continue reading Ghosts of The Past

Safety: A Letter to My Future Child

Dear Future Child, I hope you know how much you deserve. You deserve to feel happiness, feel peace, feel love, and most of all, you deserve to feel safe. Maybe safety is a combination of all of these feelings. I want you to experience safety the most of all, because if you feel safe, you have a clear mind to manifest joy. If you feel safe, you don’t have to worry about fear. If you feel safe, you’ll be open to giving and receiving love. However, reaching this so-called paradise of safety isn’t always easy, and I’m writing this to … Continue reading Safety: A Letter to My Future Child

My To-Do List For February 2018

It is almost the beginning of the second month of the year, and as the time passes faster than bearable, I’ve gotten into the habit of making sure I take care of business. Anyone who knows me or even sits next to me in public is aware that I govern my life solely by the use of to-do lists. I make them for every day, every week, every month, and every year. Also for special events or occasions. There’s just too much to be done in the amount of time given (even though time is an illusion, it feels too … Continue reading My To-Do List For February 2018

Letter to My Future Child: A Series

Dear Future Child, I’m not sure if you’ll ever read this on here. I’m not sure if this blog will still be around by the time you’re able to read, digest, and understand all the ways that your crazy mother expresses herself. You may ask yourself as your cheeks redden, “Why does my mom have to say this to the whole worldwide audience?” and I’d reply, “Don’t worry, small one, I only have 400 followers.” You may also think, “Mom, this blog and this series is embarrassing,” and I’ll say, “Sorry honey, it’s what I was born to do. And … Continue reading Letter to My Future Child: A Series

Travel: 12 DOG

As the series is winding down, I have come to realize what a truly overwhelmingly blessed season this is. I nearly forgot about today, because I was so caught up in last minute shopping, doing yoga, and eating sushi. I’m certainly not complaining, because this is my “break”. But even on my time off from class and college, I still want to work every day to improve my reading and writing, and this blog is just one way I do that. So on this eleventh day, I am going to express my gratitude for travel. To me, traveling just means … Continue reading Travel: 12 DOG
