"You think you know me, but you don’t.
And that means you don’t know what I can do.
You see me as someone who’s popular and has all the answers, but that’s not true.
I may not always know what I’m doing, but I’ll always try to make things better.
I can't do this alone, and if you'll take the chance on me, we can do great things together.
I promise, if you believe in me, I’ll find the courage to reach for your every dream."
Most people don't follow through with resolutions or don't make any at all to begin with. This year, I wanted to make it apparent that I need to make changes and I won't rest until those changes are made. I am slowly but surely becoming a woman that I can be proud of.
Here's some of my resolutions stepping into the new decade:
"I want to draw something that means something to someone. You know, I want to draw blind faith, or a fading summer, or just a moment of clarity.
It's like when you go and see a really great band, live for the first time, you know, and nobody's saying it, but everybody's thinking it, we have something to believe in again.
I want to draw that feeling, but I can't.
And if I can't be great at it then I don't want to ruin it.
It's too important to me."
That's how I feel about my writing.
No cut cards.
No take backs.
Just the cold, hard and honest truth.
It’s been awhile since I’ve written anything worth publishing, so this is in honor of all that I love and what makes me collectively me.

Places on my Travel Wish List:
Through each of our lives we are taken through a series of trials and tribulations that make us inherently who we are and more importantly what we might become.
I say that with a heavy, but also a light heart because pain changes us in ways we may have never anticipated.
I share my stories with you.
Personal, uncut and direct.
I want to show you that life is easier once we stop blaming ourselves for bad luck or unfortunate circumstances and start self evaluating.
I'll share my scary stories with you about me and my past, as long as you listen with a close ear and open your heart to the next person. Sometimes all it takes is breaking down our own barriers in order to receive the openness and love we are all desperately looking for.
