Maybe one day I’ll write something great. I don’t know about you, but as someone who writes, I always feel like I could have said something better or that maybe it could have made more sense. I write because I want to express myself, but there is always the question: What is good enough? However,

As soon as Americans invented the suburbs, and the subsequent suburban lawn, people became obsessed with not only whose grass was greener, but also whose life was more admirable. In apartments, there are close quarters and fewer secrets, sometimes with neighbors’ indoor conversations within earshot, and in rural life, there is much privacy, but something

I always believe that life will amaze you in the most stunning ways, but what I do not know is that it will also break your heart in a very unexpected way. People always say that life will gift you with lessons that will help you grow and build yourself, but nobody warns you that you’ll

There isn’t a single day that goes by that I am not bombarded with seeing happy little families in the grocery store, couples walking hand-in-hand down the sidewalk on a hot summer night, and giddy teenagers fresh out of high school with their twenties still ahead of them.

Your twenties can be a rollercoaster ride of emotions.

I hope you know how much you are worth. I hope you know just how beautiful your soul is. I hope you know how much you have to offer. I hope you know just how golden your heart is. We need to stop asking ourselves if we are good enough for others. We need to

I was painfully shy as a kid. I decided early on it was easier for people to take care of me if I was quiet and out of the way. I took on the identity of the good, shy girl. And I was rewarded for it. “Anna’s so easy, you don’t even know she’s in

So you say you feel stuck. You say you feel stuck trying to pursue your passions and your skills, trying to figure out what those even are. You say you feel lost knowing what you’re meant to do, how you’re meant to spend this one life, and not just what you’re good at, but what
