I find some things about growing up in this life so…odd. For one, most of us end up spending so much time as we get older trying to simply…like ourselves. Shouldn’t that be a given? We literally are who we are, and yet we seem to like others a hell of a lot more than […]

Extraordinary Life

Life moves at such an interesting pace. So quickly nowadays. Information moves faster, we move faster, sometimes not even peeking up from under the visor of our everyday routine, shrouding us in more of the same. And we wonder why we aren’t happy.

Next time you look in the mirror, consider that your features are a collection of all your ancestors. Traits have been handed down from generation to generation, skipping around playfully in recessive alleles, or sometimes drawing a straight line of dominance from origin to what you see reflected back to you.

So many self-proclaimed “experts” have touted this advice as the holy grail when it comes to any achievement in life—namely, theirs. “Just believe in yourself,” they say, like it’s as simple as just washing your hands, or changing a shirt.

Success is such an interesting concept. Everyone wants to figure out how to know if you’re successful because we base so much of your self-worth on it but the thing is, it’s kind of inconsequential, isn’t it? I’ve been doing a ton of thinking about how to know if you’re successful lately and what really […]

I know. What the hell is a real adult? To be real with you, this title is a bit clickbait. Because the concept of a “real adult” is a bit bullshit. If you’re an adult, you’re an adult. I guess what I want you to get out of this post is how to get your […]

The conversation went a little something like… Him: “You’re such an optimist” Me: “It’s a learned habit, 5 years […]

I read a headline talking about how alcohol sales have increased significantly, almost in line with the prohibition when Covid first hit hard and lock down started to feel like a prison.

Ooph! If there was one thing I could change about my upbringing, over the traumas, the hardships, is the fact that nobody ever told me, “Hey Bella, it’s totally okay to pursue several different careers and hobbies and paths in life.” Because you can.
