The Art of Letting Go

You probably came on here thinking that I would start off by saying that I had it all figured out. That I had the magic recipe to let go. To let go of pain, suffering, fears, self-sabotaging behavior, or whatever other million things people are trying to let go of nowadays. It’s not that I don’t know how to do it, it’s just that one size does not fit all. I won’t ever get tired of saying that. What works for me, may not always work for you. Not just that, the thing that I’ve discovered is that one day,…

Social Media Detox: Why It’s Important

There were times when I found myself scrolling through social media apps for what seemed like a short period of time throughout my day, yet when I would add the time up it was more than just a few minutes of my day. I would spend hours on social media and then I would find myself feeling drained and disappointed with myself repeatedly. Why was I so hooked on looking at the latest posts from my friends and or other irrelevant pages? Mind you, I’m not saying anyone is irrelevant but I am saying that there were pages I followed…

Why Ultimatums Never Work

For the most part we’ve all been there right? We’re in a situation that is considered to be far from ideal and you’re frustrated and suddenly you find yourself having a conversation with someone and saying you either do this or I walk away. Then one of two things happen, the person either tells you I’m sorry but I can’t match what you’re asking of me OR the person adjusts to your request and then suddenly you think you actually got what you wanted. I’m saying you think you got what you asked for because you didn’t really get what…

Showing Up In Life

I made a short video on this on my Instagram post today on this topic. I asked a simple question(s), “Do you show up for yourself in every area of your life?” And most importantly do you show up for yourself? Which is more important because how you show up for yourself sets the tone for how you show up for yourself in every area of your life. If you don’t show up for yourself in your life, I truly don’t expect for you to tell me that you actually have a fulfilling life and that every other area of…

Making Peace With It All

I’m making peace with my past, every single demon that was once there is disappearing bit by bit. I’m starting to realize that the more I face these demons head on one by one, the lighter I feel. I acknowledge that some of these demons that have been here with me are because I didn’t want to take responsibility for them being there. I gave them light, in fact I handed them the fuel to light the fire. As the weeks go by I release each demon one by one and I thank them for what they showed me, but…

What You Can Do When Impatience Starts Kicking In: As I get Older I Realize I’m A lot More Patient

It seems that from the moment I started to identify my reasoning for being extremely impatient I started developing patience. I guess I made a deal with myself to get to know me better because unless I truly know who I am and what my triggers are, how can I expect for anyone to truly know me and understand me? At the beginning of January 2018 I was told that I had let a lot of amazing opportunities go because I had no patience. I didn’t allow certain opportunities to play out fully or I would say I didn’t have…

Why venting only creates more of what is

Have you ever found yourself venting your frustrations and repeating the same things over and over? How did all of that make you feel? Do you feel happy afterwards? My guess is that it probably leaves you even more drained, angry, and or depressed. Everything is energy. If you haven’t heard this before, you may have been hiding under a rock these past couple of years. Ever since social media got bigger than what was probably anticipated, you’ve seen your friends and/or specific pages post quotes about energies, enlightenment, affirmations, and the list goes on and on. I’m sure you’ve…

Staying true to you

It’s been well over 3 years since I last wrote something here, I was even debating taking down my first post ever. It kind of makes me cringe a bit reading over it, but I decided to leave it alone for the sake that it’s a part of my story. Over the last few years a lot of things have changed. Everything from my personality to my goals and dreams. People change, seasons change, everything truly does change, but I’d like to think that everything changes for the better. Things truly do get better as the time goes by. For…

Growing up and Taking a risk

I’ve been sitting here trying to figure out how to start this. Let me start out with the basics. My name is Cynthia and I’m a 24-year-old full-time student. I’m currently attending the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising for Visual Communications. I have always known that I’ve wanted to be involved in the fashion industry but I just never knew how. I always loved looking at magazines and flipping through the pages. I would look at the models and the amazing clothes that they would wear. I always wanted to be like them. However, growing up was tough. I didn’t…
