Mosaïc

I’ve recently discovered something…Something that has changed the way I look at life…Something that changed my perspective on everything…Something that I wish I understood and would’ve realized earlier… I realized that…My life is like a Mosaïc. It’s full of random,And broken pieces,Building something amazing. I can’t see it now,But, I know it’s gonna be beautiful….

In my thoughts…

There’s so much happening up there. All the time. It never shuts off. It’s always running at a million miles an hour. I wish it would just turn off. I need a break. From all of them. I just want peace for a minute. I just can’t anymore They don’t even agree with each other…

Birthday Goals?

So, today’s a weird / crazy / awesome day… . . . Today is my birthday, and I don’t know how to feel because I try to do this thing every year; I try to spend my birthday in a new country every year, so I can remember that birthday, and that country. But, for…

A little goes a long way!

$1 CDN = $500 CLP . . . So, 2 months ago I was living in Chile and the last time I went to the bank to get money for some souvenirs, I thought about how much money/souvenirs I wanted. And, since the bank machines were in Chilean pesos I had to do the math,…

The good ol’ days!

I miss the days when I used to play outside everyday after school. I miss the days when I would run around my block with friends and neighbours doing crazy and stupid things. I miss the days when we’d laugh all evening until the sun set. I miss those days because I always thought we’d…

Learning how to chill…

So, stress is not fun at all. And, learning that the hard way makes it even more stressful. . . . While I was living in Chile, I learned that stressing about things is never a good response. I learned to just go with the flow; to not always stress when things don’t happen on…

Stranger danger!

So, “stranger danger” can’t really be in my vocabulary anymore. . . . Remember when you were young, and your parents told you not to talk to strangers? Well, that comes with a lot of terms and conditions, the biggest one being: Traveling. P.S. I’m not talking about those creepy strangers in white vans (you…

For today’s post, I was challenged to look through my old Facebook, Instagram or Twitter posts and pick something that stood out to me and write what I think about it now. . . . So, I chose to look through my Instagram feed and, while scrolling through, my very first Instagram post stood out…

¡Summer in January?

Yup, it’s JANUARY and, I can go outside wearing shorts, a tank-top, and flip flops. It’s JANUARY and, I don’t need to bundle-up to go outside and shovel snow. It’s JANUARY and, I can be outside without freezing / getting frostbite. It’s JANUARY and, it’s sunny & +30 degrees Celsius. I keep having to remind…

#Blessed…

Lemme guess… You read that title: “Hashtag Blessed”. That means you have more than you need & you are truly blessed…  . . . Think about it, the only reason you know that this symbol # means hashtag is because you probably learned it on the internet (did know know that less than half of…
