You Are Not Alone

We tend to focus on ourselves when we’re having a tough time. On the stormy sea where the wind is overpowering you and your boat dangerously tilts, there’s a hand reaching out ready to pull you towards safety. You just have to take it. Talking about your thoughts and emotions is a key part of the…

Little Things That Make Me Happy

The earthy scent when it rains. Beautiful sunsets. Sipping hot chocolate and reading a book. Flowers in bloom. Singing along to my favourite music. Warm hugs. A good hair day. A big bowl of popcorn and a good movie. Popping bubble wrap. Laughing till my stomach hurts. Binge-watching a TV show. Funny memes. Listening to a song…

The Sky

The sky is an infinite movie to me. I never get tired of looking at what’s happening up there. I spend a lot of time appreciating how beautiful the sky looks. So here are some photos I’ve taken. If you’re looking at a grey sky, don’t give up. Soon, the sky will be clear again…

Her: Fire

Him: Ice

There he sat, the head of the family. Always silencing her, telling her that her thoughts are insignificant. “Shut up” being flung across the room without even thinking about it.   Is power what he wants?
