about the blog

honest words. with myself. and with others. but why?

I first came across self-help advice unintentionally through videos that popped up on my recommended TikTok page in the lovely COVID era. The first few videos felt uplifting - they even gave me some sort of temporary reprieve from the world and I just wanted to float in all these beautiful sayings for a period of time. But after a while I realised how fluffy and irrelevant these quotes were to my life, I could read all the sayings in the world and nothing would actually change. Intuitively, we know these sayings have a ‘right’ feeling about them. Like okay ‘be the light’ sounds great and all but what does that even mean when I feel irritated about studying? 

Let’s be real, transformation doesn’t come when the sky opens up and you get an out-of body experience and suddenly understand every spiritual saying. Transformation comes in the mundane moments where irritations, triggers reveal your personal lies or the stories that you tell yourself that limit you. This is what inspired my blog - I take big spiritual fluffy sayings and explain them in real moments of time, moments of struggle, moments of observation, most importantly - moments of my everyday life.
