Core Essence

What makes up the core of who we really are?

Core Essence

What defines the true essence of a person?

Is it the deep and intricate qualities from within? Or even their thought process on how to reach a conclusion?

Does essence reflect in a person’s physique? Or could it even be the personality they were born with?

Each person will have a different outlook on how they find the essence of someone.

What they value in one another will vary. What we reflect on ourselves, may not be seen by somebody and vice versa.

Over time, we slowly gather pieces from others. Pieces of joy. Pieces of support. Pieces of strength.

And all that together, only builds up our own essence. Our own personality. Our own views.

From that, creates an even better you. A stronger person. An experienced individual.

So I must ask, what is your essence?

Do you see yourself in a positive light? Or do you diminish the very foundation in which you were made?

It’s all about perspective. It is all our choice on how we view ourselves and others. And that viewpoint has power.

Power to destroy and power to lift up. Which are you doing?

The perspective we prefer determines the outcome of our life. What are you choosing today?

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester.

It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
