Importance of Setting Goals

Sometimes it is difficult to stay on track and feel like yourself the entire time. It’s difficult to always be uplifting, positive and energetic when your body keeps feeling down and you don’t know what to do with your days. That’s why I’ve been finding it so important to set goals and aim to achieve…

Fleetingness

For it doesn’t matter how you may feel at one moment, the fleetingness of it all makes it redundant holding on to that feeling forever.

Recharging My Batteries

We all get worned out. We all go through periods in life where we’re completely out of energy, feel exhausted all the time, anxiety is high, creativity is low, etc. We all go through phases when it feels like we absolutely need to recharge our batteries and get back to our full potential.

It’s Peaceful Underwater

The world can be a loud place. Gravity can be a little too strong some days. Streets can feel limiting at times. That’s why I love swimming. I love diving in the limitless ocean and hearing the muffled up sounds, the quietness surrounding me. I love the sensation of not having to give in to…
