What's The Hurry?

Trust the timing of your life

What's The Hurry?

Challenges, obstacles, and struggles. Life sure can be chaotic sometimes and I always seem to get into a funk when my life goes off balance.

Maybe that's because we have a tendency to want what we want when we want it. But I'm slowly learning that waiting is not so bad.

Waiting doesn't mean you're passive or that you've failed or your life is falling apart. When all is said and done it is just a part of life. That is why patience is something we have to continuously accept and learn.

There are times when things don't get done, there are delays, and hurdles are in the way. But it's okay to run out of time. There's always tomorrow, another day, or another year.

As cliche as it sounds, everything really does happen for a reason. This, as a concept, wasn't always in my realm of thinking. It has taken time for me to accept and understand it.

I spent a lot of last year focusing too much energy into making plans, worrying about my future, and stressing over expectations of how things should turn out.

This year I'm learning that timing won't always be against you and it won't be wrong. Doors have been opening full of change and opportunity.

Maybe all those timelines and dates I put for myself were all off and my journey is taking a totally different timeline.

So far I've come out with a bunch of really good lessons, a whole lot of wisdom, a new found strength and a more positive attitude.

Timing may not always be on my side but it's on the right side. The one that makes sense and will make my future not only better but easier.

Eventually, things will fall into place.

So for now I will let time take it's time.

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. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. 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.
