Day of Creativity (Part II)

I committed myself to having a monthly “day of creativity”. A day where I would disconnect all devices, be in tuned with nature and release all the words that have been forcefully oppressed. I didn’t know what day I would choose; I thought about the same day each month, but that felt too predictable, and unlike me so I decided to let my body tell me when it was time. Many times I ignored my intuition and regretted it, so now I’m all for listening. I had booked my birthday… Read more Day of Creativity (Part II)

Day of Creativity (Part I)

At the beginning of the year, I made a vow that I would take the time to “go off the grid” to reset and realign focus on the things that are important to me. I heard of this idea when I went to a workshop last year. “It sparked creativity,” she said, and it was able to propel her in the personal and professional aspects of her life. I felt I needed to do that because I haven’t been able to write a poem in ages, and I felt shattered.… Read more Day of Creativity (Part I)

(When you know) It’s time to let go: a jobuationship

I recently started a new job; aside from being in the honeymoon phase, I feel the stark difference in motivation to power through my day. When I started my first job in the UK, I was quite intrigued as I was about to immerse myself in an entirely new culture. It was quite easy as everyone was so helpful because, at some point in their life, they were in a similar position. That job was great, but after a year, I wanted career stability, so I opted for a transfer.… Read more (When you know) It’s time to let go: a jobuationship

I think It’s Time (The Epilogue to The Act of Calling out)

I usually write about whatever pops into my head. There is an element of randomness I appreciate; I think it’s because I’m so spontaneous. About a week ago, I posted “I think it’s time” because it felt right. Then after posting “the art of calling out” I thought that I should repost “I think it’s time” cause it tied together so well. I mentioned that I don’t call out people that much. However, there are times when someone you love is doing the most and slapping the stupidity out of… Read more I think It’s Time (The Epilogue to The Act 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

When you know (To Have The Talk)

I had that conversation around 25; it was just around the time I finished university, so I needed to figure out my next step. The need to have this conversation presented itself long before I completed my Bachelor’s. However, I avoided it because I thought I had enough time (and I was a bit of a procrastinator). Not surprising, time crept up on me, and I found myself in a negativity space at which time I forced myself to do it. It was hard in the beginning, as I didn’t… Read more When you know (To Have The Talk)
