To the Bewildered, Soul Searching Woman

Your journey isn't over, it's only just begun.

To the Bewildered, Soul Searching Woman
Morgan Richard Olivier

Here's to the beautiful disaster

The one who has created a war within herself to please and keep peace with the people around her.
She’s been dealt some difficult cards, taken the wrong paths, overcame trials and experienced losses that not only seemed to break her heart but also break her very soul.
Her hindsight haunts her, the future frightens her, so she overanalyzes today.

She may feel fragile, trapped, and consumed by this world but little does she know she is nowhere near defeated.
The numbing discomfort, overwhelming confusion, and the loss of self that was meant to destroy her very being was derailed and is being used to mold her.

What was set out to silence her words, corrode her mind, and rot her soul only awakened her hidden spirit.
She is more empathetic, humble, aware and understanding.
She craves purpose over perfection, authenticity before outside validation, and longs for the feeling of fully accepting herself and experiencing peace.

So let her cry till she has no tears left, disappear into the darkness of her soul, and scream if she has to.
She is releasing her former faults, detoxing from what she thought she knew about herself and the world, and carefully putting the mask away.

There is purpose in her pain for lessons in her lie. There is a burning and alluring passion in her eyes, warmth in her embrace, and compassion in her voice.
She is a child of God, a fighter, a beautiful spirit, and a powerful Queen.

She is YOU.

Six Lies Fed to Your Mind, By Your Mind.

These thoughts will drive you mad.


Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
