We often spend our time wishing for some future experience to happen, or dwelling on what we could have done differently in the past. For me, personally, I overthink events that have already happened, dwelling on times where I have been hurt, and thinking of people who are no longer in my life anymore. Moreover, I can spend a lot

This is it everyone. The last few days of the year 2017. The last hoorah. It’s been one hell of a year. With memories that I wouldn’t trade for the world. Would I say that this was the best year of my life? No. Would I say it was the most eventful? Hell yes. I’ve endured the hardest battles, and

There are people who walk in and out of our lives. Constantly. Life is like a revolving door. People are constantly entering and leaving. I know a lot of people who believe that their bestest friends were going to be by their sides forever, or lovers that swear they’d be together till’ death do them part. But then later on, they
