Consistency

Saying what you mean,Doing what you say,Delivering what you intend,Making and fulfilling promises,No room for empty words and hot air.I won’t be chasing after anyone,Or looking to mold someone to my will,Seeking out realness and transparency,Connection and honesty,Someone who will love me unconditionally for who I really am,No shield or walls,Someone who challenges and excites […]

Feeling stronger on my own, […]

Tribe

It’s in the moments of sadness and despair,You reach out and see who is there.When you’re feeling down and out and don’t trust your own strength,This is when the power of friendship is the pull and support system you need.The people who are your day ones,They lift you up, but also call you out on […]
