Hi!

I feel that everyone needs some sort of creative outlet, or passion project. This is mine. I share original and curated content of everything from photographs of my home, to my love for plants, to my carefully curated playlists. My hope is that this blog will serve as a source of inspiration for you as well. 

A Quick Note on Transparency & Emotions

A Quick Note on Transparency & Emotions

Transparency. It's a beautiful thing, a representation of your true self. It's a sign of courage, and not being afraid of showing your 'not-so-perfect' self. Sometimes, there is no need for facades. Appearing as if things are always perfect, and only displaying the highlight reels of your life can get a bit exhausting. It is okay to admit that you're not okay. It is okay to admit to people that you're having a shitty day. Don't deny what you are feeling. Transparency builds character, and it allows you to actually feel what you are going through instead of internalizing it.

I am no stranger to being emotional, and depending on the situation, a bit too much. There's this thing I do - where, at times, I can end up becoming too transparent to the wrong people at times, and that's an issue that I'm working on within myself, and I'm aware that it's happening because I regret it almost instantly.

I'm learning to talk less. Sometimes, when someone says something to me that could possibly be triggering, I tend to respond with more verbiage than I need to. Over-explaining myself. It's just something I no longer want to do. It's not necessary. I'm working on learning to say less while still being able to fully convey what I am feeling.

Being transparent and vulnerable is a positive thing because it celebrates self-knowledge and self-awareness. On the flip side, be mindful with whom you allow to see this side of you. Not everyone deserves a seat at that table.
