2012-The Year of Me
“The present moment holds the key to liberation.”- Eckhart Tolle (The Power of Now) On this eve of the new year, I am resolving to make this the year of “me”. In fact, we should all make this year about ourselves. To reconnect with the present moment. To appreciate the people and things in our lives. To appreciate the beauty within ourselves, within others, and...
I Would Take the High Road, But I Decided Not to...
Just think, almost a year ago today We were on our way to being engaged Gave up my whole life for you You should’ve seen what a blessing I was from the start But you constantly took me for granted I don’t think I can ever forgive you For the things you’ve done to me You took advantage of my innocence And my overwhelmingly abundant generosity I thought maybe,...
Honestly, I Need to Stop Lying to Myself
I’m falling apart Still that Same little girl I’ve always been Afraid Alone Confused Undone Stuck inside Always trying to hide Away All the pain and sorrow Trying to escape The four walls That held me in For so long And yet I end Up Back Where I began Why do I hurt so much? Why does no one care? Would someone please listen? They would never dare ...
Innocently, It's True
I need you to hold my hand Tell me all the loving things You can Cuz I’m falling apart I’m crying my eyes out With this emo heart, of mine The world is a different shade It seems that I’ve got it made And it’s all because of you Don’t know what I’d do, without you You’ve built me up in ways I Never knew I needed My heart just breaks ...
The Tale of True Love's Kiss

The Ramblings of a Worried Soul
Worry, worry, worry. Always worrying!!!! I can never let go of worry. There is always something new that I find to worry about. How much I’ve eaten. What I have eaten. What I will do with my life. My relationships. Being a good person. How many times I’ve put on deodorant. How much money I have… or don’t have. What people think of me or how I look. How skinny I am… ...
To Fear Or Not To Fear, That is the Question
Remember when you were a kid and you had the ability to rollerblade down the steepest hill, without a care in the world? Or, when you would just jump off the highest diving board, feeling almost invincible to the fact that water would be propelled up your nose? What is fear? Why is it so disabling? Why does it seem that the older we get, the more fearful we become of so many things? ...
Where Oh Where Have All My Friends Gone?
Okay. So I have to admit, I have no friends. And it gets kind of lonely. I don’t remember exactly when this process occurred, but as I sat alone in my room last night, trying to find something to bring me out of my boredom, I couldn’t help but wonder, whatever happened to all of my friends? I began to judge myself. Maybe it was me? Maybe there is something wrong with me and...
Sweet Guilt of Mine
You are not the only one who feels guilt. No, I was no raised Catholic. I was raised human. And as humans, we are taught to feel guilt. We are taught to bathe in guilt. Actually, we glorify guilt. If, in your life, you don’t carry extreme guilt about something, you are not a compassionate, god-fearing human being. So, we are taught to feel guilty for whom we love, guilty for how or...
What's Love Got to Do With It?
Romantic relationships are weird. They make you become someone you’re not. They make you do or say things that would never happen if you were in your right mind. They make it so your logical mind often becomes wrought with indecision. You become an emotional fool. It is a beautiful thing to be in love with someone. It is a beautiful thing to see two people truly in love. But how...
Health, Wealth, and Happiness
My name is Keyra and I have an eating disorder. I have always been very open and honest about my past with others. I think I’ve always been a little too open actually. I always act like I’ve “conquered” my past. When in reality, I’ve continually struggled. All the time that I spend helping others is time less spent on actually focusing on myself and allowing myself the freedom to be...
