What to Tell Yourself When Your Failures Start to Limit You

As I was sorting my files on my Google drive, I came upon this piece I wrote (but never published anywhere) in Feb of 2017. I actually forgot about it after writing it.

In the many autumns that passed, that one leaf stayed connected to its branch — trying her best not to detach and free fall. Her fears and insecurities… Continue reading Poem | The Leaf Who’s Afraid to Fall


(Don’t) “Go for What Makes You Happy”

Then, during the course of the interview, one of the band members said (non-verbatim), "If all people will go for what makes them… Continue reading (Don’t) “Go for What Makes You Happy”
