Poetry on Odyssey: Just Be You

In response to 5 Reminders You Just Might Need Right Now

Being who you were meant to be sometimes doesn't come so easy. But if there's anything I've learnt during the last few years its not to let anyone tear you down.

We are all unique and are very deserving of love.

Sure, I still struggle with self acceptance and it is something I try to work on when I can.

Here is a poem on just that...


The mirror seems distorted,

But it shows you who you are.

Do not dismiss it -

Even when you're lost.

You are your own person.

There's no one else like you.

Look in the mirror and understand

How valued you are.

You are worthy of love.

You are capable of so much.

Let them know of your self-love.

It is not vain,

Its welcomed.

Self-worth is the first place to start.

For, if you can't accept yourself

How do you expect others to?

Love starts at home.

Put yourself first

And in time

You will know.

You are special.

You are loved.

There is no one else

Like you.

Let your uniqueness shine through.

Marching Through March

Some appreciation for the month of March.


I love the entire year. Well, for the most part. I'm not a big fan of Winter, but even then, every month has something that's pretty great. November? Thanksgiving. December? Winter Holidays. January? New Year's. February? Valentine's and Single Awareness Day. May? Existential dread during finals. But for me, March has always been my favorite month of the year, and for good reason.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,

After packing two oversized suitcases and two carryons with all the boho chic clothes I thought I needed to travel across the country for my dream internship, I quickly realized that although I may look like I belong out in the entertainment capital of the world there was a lot more to it than Free People dresses and fanny packs.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,
September: Los Angeles

Ever since I was younger I dreamed of moving out to California. There was something so amusing about being in the hub of it all that bursts with passion and artistry wherever you look. After a trip to LA when I was a sophomore in high school for dance, I fell even more in love with this utopia of a city and from that moment on, Los Angeles was that light at the end of the tunnel.
