Living a Meaningful Life

What it truly means to live an authentic and meaningful life has become obscured. Advertisers know this. Their very existence depends on it. They play on our primitive fears of not being “good enough.” They prey on our foolishly egotistical longings for more money, more materials, more of anything and everything beyond what we currentlyContinue reading “Living a Meaningful Life”

Returning to your routine

Within the last few weeks, I’ve grown busy in other aspects of my life. I’ve gotten a new job or two. But in doing so, I’ve found that I’ve consistently neglected my regular routine. There are certain things that I like to do each day, as well as commitments I’ve made to myself that haveContinue reading “Returning to your routine”

Letting go

I feel there is this duality that we face as humans. On one end, we crave validation. Oftentimes, we strive for success in other fields because of the foolish belief that when we get there, we will finally have the approval of those who have been withholding their love, fully and wholly, for so long.Continue reading “Letting go”

Thoughts on black trans women during Black Lives Matter movement

Black lives matter. This includes transgender black women who are arguably the most marginalized in our society. Their deaths have not been given the media attention they deserve. We cannot give voice to some discrimination while the rest is left in the dark. Let’s work to change this. WARNING: Suitable for mature readers only. TheContinue reading “Thoughts on black trans women during Black Lives Matter movement”

Munich musings

Spinning slowly to see magnificent spires from so far down, as ghosts slip through the spaces between my hands like the breeze. Empty now, I can picture cartwheels in my head and I wouldn’t touch a thing. But people were here once, uncomfortably so, shoving each other to claim some space for themselves if onlyContinue reading “Munich musings”

The soul of a place

The more I travel, the more I am quite certain that every place I visit has a soul. You can feel the energy pulsing through the moment you step off the plane. Moving to Santa Barbara, I remember this feeling. I knew it was exactly the place where I was supposed to be. A greatContinue reading “The soul of a place”

Little drops & BIG dreams

How refreshing to know that the big dream will never be accomplished in a single sitting? What pressure! Rather it is the baby steps, how we choose to spend each day, that will turn into something beautiful. And there’s no exact formula you need to memorize, no specific number you need to reach, no statusContinue reading “Little drops & BIG dreams”

Moroccan musings

Hello, everyone! Thank you all so much for your support. I can’t believe it’s only been a few weeks and I already have some followers. Woohoo! Fridays I will be posting little rambles from my travels. I hope you don’t mind. First up, my trip to Chefchaouen, the blue village: There exists a world ofContinue reading “Moroccan musings”

Not one for politics

The more the pandemic carries on, the more apparent it becomes that we are so far behind the rest of the world. I see it now clearly where before it was obscure. A beautiful flag stands in front of it, covering it up. But now there are holes poking through, piercing light against a backdropContinue reading “Not one for politics”

Thoughts on peace during a pandemic

There has been so much duality lately. It makes one really begin to recognize the nature of things. A true spectrum. How much have we all wanted a break from it all, quite certain that if we were just given a few weeks off to just be, away from the stress of the everyday weContinue reading “Thoughts on peace during a pandemic”
