It gets dark when you’re trying to get your life in order. shit blows up in your face, people leave, you may cry a lot, you lose and you learn your lesson.

Growing up I never thought my life would change so much, that today I would be in some situations that I never thought I would find myself in. Working a 9–5 job and not being able to enjoy the summer as I am always working or to be able get myself anything as the bills are literally cornering me and choking me to death, I try to come up for air each time I get paid. I don’t want to bore you with my not so glamorous life but if I am honest things are not so bad as it…

I am not a fitness guru but I realize the reason why I lost interest in working out is because I was doing the opposite of these things that I am about to list below. I will list a few tips to help both you and me to stay on track.

When you’re working stop thinking constantly about the body that you want. Reason why I say this is because your body will not change overnight you will need to put in the work, the dedication…

you’re probably thinking about how everyone else is getting in relationships, getting married, having kids while you’ve never been in a relationship, still single after that last break up and can’t find anyone who will give you the love that you deserve.

Honestly, you are never late in love and you are never too early either; love happens when it supposed to happen do not force a relationship when you know it’s not right just because you’re afraid to end up alone. You are never alone even when you feel like you are, God is always watching over you and…

A disclaimer I do not promise that you will always be happy; no one can be happy all the time because there are things far greater than us that we cannot control, things like death. Sadly, death is one of our biggest enemy and whenever it sets foot somewhere it can only bring pain, tears, and great grief.

These small steps although they can appear easy are the hardest things that anyone can manage to do at all times because we have a lot of emotions, anger, greed, grudges but those steps can help get rid of all of that.

As humans we all go through hardships, disappointments and a few setbacks but life can be easier if we try to accept a few things…

1. you cannot please everyone, as much as you want to make everyone like you or want to get along with everyone you meet it’s just not possible to do that, why? because we all have different personalities, different upbringing and some people might not even have a valid reason for not liking you. When you accept that it is not possible to please everyone that will save you from trying to be like someone…

Love.

I want to find love but not the kind of love you find in 2019.

The kind of love that writers and poets write about.

The kind of love that makes you stay up all night reminiscing about the time spent with them.

I want the kind of love that leaves you breathless and that makes you want to change your wicked ways.

I want the kind of love that makes you stay outside looking at the stars and wondering why the sky is so pretty.

I want the kind of love that makes you want to write a book.

I want the kind of love that bares it all and endures it all.

Indeed, I want the kind love that drives you insane but in a good way. Where you call your friend at 2 am just to talk about them.


Bad day, lonely night.

You’re not you when you’re feeling this way.

You’re not you when you’re hiding away from everyone.

You’re not you when you’re crying without knowing why.

You’re not you when you’re sad and stay silent.

You change each time your world is breaking apart.

You change each time you cry yourself to sleep.

You change each time you decide to stay silent when you wanted to talk.

You change each time you stop believing in yourself.

You’re not you when you’re apologizing for everything.

You change so much that you don’t even remember who you are anymore.

Those thoughts.

Sleepless nights.

Feeling worthless from time to time.

Feeling pain but don’t know how bad from a scale of 1 to 10.

Hurting but don’t know exactly where or what is hurting.

Wishing you could feel pain.

Wishing you could feel what’s making you cry so much.

A dreamer's mind.

A beautiful sunset, magical nights, fireworks, great stories, good music, exotic cats are the things I live for. Lastly, I devote my life to the one that I love
