This Year


Two thousand and seventeen.

It’s here.

Even though the future is uncertain, and at times can look quite bleak (especially after this American political season), I have hope.

I will continue looking for the light.

Looking for the awesome in the everyday.

I will rebel.

I will love, fiercely.

I will create.

I will explore.

I will eat carbs.

I will breathe.

I will be myself, unapologetically.


Let’s do this.

I Still Believe

Even in times of great tragedy, I still believe.

I believe that there is good in this world.

I believe that people are helpful, kind, and generous.

I believe that love for one another shines through the darkness.

I believe in hope.

I still believe.
