Category: Growth On So Many Levels

Words Hurt as Well as Sticks and Stones (Part II)

So many times we say things about ourselves that are so demeaning, and we wonder why things are so unfavourable for us. We put negative energy in the world to multiply and follow us. Even if it’s a joke; the words are still released in the same way. It’s one of the reasons you are to blame for your misfortunes. Be kind to yourself; praise yourself for all the things you have accomplished. You are terrific, and it is time you realise the impact your presence has on the universe.… Read more Words Hurt as Well as Sticks and Stones (Part II)

🥳Celebrating Milestones🥳

If my blog were a baby, she would be at the point where she is more aware of her surroundings. She would try to talk, producing sounds unfamiliar to me, and mimic everything I do. We would both have that love and trust surrounded by unlimited happiness. Six months ago, I decided to be brave enough to publish my first post publically and chose to keep the consistency. It was such a nerve-wracking experience as I was scared of the rejections I would face when I made myself vulnerable by… Read more 🥳Celebrating Milestones🥳

My Poetry Challenge

I thought it! I said it out loud! I did it! As part of my theme this year, I wanted to push myself towards writing more poetry. I convinced my friend that we should do a writing challenge; we would alternate picking themes for the month, write at least three poems and send them as voice notes or messages to each other. My friend agreed, and we went on our 2020 journey. The theme for January was “Having the Strength to Let Go,” decided by yours truly! At the end… Read more My Poetry Challenge

You Are What You Call Yourself

I have this friend that continually calls me a girl even though I remind them that I don’t identify with that word. They didn’t seem to understand the idea behind it, but I felt the need to explain my stance to prevent any further confusion. So the story goes like this: “I made a conscious effort not to refer to myself as a girl anymore under any circumstances. Most people thought it was weird, but I connected the word girl with childish and finite things, and I didn’t want to… Read more You Are What You Call Yourself

My Bare Minimum Checklist

As part of “The Year of Mass Holistic Expansion” I set out some goals that I need to complete as part of the bare minimum to accomplishing this year. It started as a challenge I gave to my friends, new year resolution of sorts, but I decided to turn them into affirmations so that I can attract the necessary steps to get to the next level. I am going to become more spiritual; I am going to become more consistent with the tasks I set for myself; I am going… Read more My Bare Minimum Checklist

End of Year Address (Part 2)

…In Grenada, I reconnected with my father, got the chance to do some significant reflections; which made me learn a lot more about myself, and I finally decided what I wanted to do career wise. After returning from Grenada, I started looking at masters or PhD programmes. I found this school and I knew that it was the school for me (its logo was an owl, I’ll expand in a later post), and coincidently I found a job in analytical chemistry that was 10mins away from where I lived. I… Read more End of Year Address (Part 2)

End of Year Address (Part 1)

Every year I am fortunate enough to celebrate two new years; the one everyone celebrates based on the Gregorian calendar, and the other one is, of course, my birthday. The second one is much more special to me because it’s a celebration of my birth and a rededication of my commitment to be my most authentic self. This year, 19-28, was a fantastic year aside from the fact I will never acclimatise to winter for I will forever be a summer baby. The year started in Barcelona; it was a… Read more End of Year Address (Part 1)

A FaceBook Reminder

I was scrolling through facebook and I was reminded about something I posted a year ago. It was a poetry project I had completed; I research the meaning of my names and wrote a descriptive paragraph about myself. Looking back at it now, I have to say that I have maintained the level of growth I wanted for myself. I have maintained: consistency self love/esteem/belief/confidence peace/sanity/joy/motivation my diet (what I consume in all aspects of my life) my energy and the steps needed to protect it My Name: Unfolded The… Read more A FaceBook Reminder

The Art of Calling Out!

Asking for a friend: How far do you go when calling someone out? What do you say? How would you deliver the call-out? Who would you call-out? I vividly remember my first call-out, it was purely reflex, and I was surprised I did it. When I was 12, I decided to try out for the school’s netball team (got cut after a week). One day, we were queuing up, and one of the older girls said something negative with regards to a male teacher. I turned around and said, ‘why… Read more The Art of Calling Out!

I think It’s Time

I love you so I think you need to hear this: I’m tired of giving so much of myself with little to no appreciation. I’m tired of having to constantly listen without you acknowledging the impact of your negativity. There comes a time in your life when you need to realise that your choices not only affects you, but those directly in your circle. Your naivety is restricting access to your common sense. I pray that you will let go of the negative patterns you learnt as a child. You… Read more I think It’s Time
