I’m so passionate about spreading positive self-love, especially to people who have anxiety and depression. I really believe changing this inner voice can create a whole magnitude of difference in their lives.
It was yet another rainy day and my cousin, my sister and I were having the time of our lives literally singing in the rain. I’m the one in the purple raincoat on the right, you can see the strain in my face as I tried to hit a high note to whatever song we were singing. This picture perfectly captures the playful innocence of child’s spirit.
I saw my love life like a voyage across the seas, setting sail to explore different places and ideas. I could not possibly set up permanent base on the first place I stumbled upon. I wanted my heart to be set free and experience what else was out there.
Tis the month of the four leaf clovers, green beer and a tipsy remembrance to good old Saint Patrick, who apparently wasn’t even Irish at all.

Anytime I opened any form of social media after the election results it felt as if my hair blew back from a flood of screams, shrieks and shaking fists.

I recently listened to an episode from the podcast called On Being. It was about listening as an act of love. In it David Isay, the founder of StoryCorps, discussed how fully listening to someone is one of the purest forms of generosity and kindness.
