The following are the three series I’ve done on Word Oasis so far! The Healing Series follows, you guessed it, my healing after the end of my previous engagement. The Get Honest Project was the start of sharing more of my story and opening up. Finally, Lights Out was where I started to dig into why I do the things that I do. I hope you enjoy, and look out for more series in the future!

The Healing Series

Healing Part I: The Man I Thought was the One Broke my Heart
There it is. All in the title. Maybe some have noticed that his name has disappeared from my bio descriptions on social media, that I haven’t posted anything about him in awhile, that both of our relationship statuses…

Healing Part II: Emily Dickinson and Sea Turtles
This healing process has doubled as a learning process. I’m still sifting through it, but I’m getting there. More (genuine) smiles and less tears have been happening, so progress is evident…

Healing Part III: Return
Just like that, it’s been two months since I’ve blogged, but I haven’t given up on this series. I would like to say that I’ve spent these months surrounding myself with rediscovery, trying new things, and overall becoming a better version of myself…

Healing Part IV: Being Honest With Myself
Things still fluctuate greatly depending on the day. Still, even though months have passed, some days I feel an inner peace while others I’m angry and hurt. But slowly, I’m seeing improvement…

Healing Part V: A Letter and Relief
It was suggested to me by a great friend that I didn’t need a face to face conversation with my ex, but writing a letter might do the trick. She was right. I wrote a letter to him. It didn’t cover everything…

6 Important Lessons I Learned from my Former Relationship
Now that the Healing series is wrapped up, I thought I’d share a little bit of introspection with you. I learned a lot from my relationship which came to an end…

The Get Honest Project

What’s Going On? Get Honest Project
For the month of May, I’m going to be unraveling the Get Honest Project. We’re going to get into the nitty-gritty: stories I haven’t told, topics most people shy away from, my own flaws…

Get Honest Project: I’ve Been Doing This Wrong…
I’ve been at this blogging thing for awhile. I thought I had it down pretty well by now. Well, turns out I’ve been doing it wrong… at least by my new standards...

The Get Honest Project: Years Go By
The past few years have proven to be quite transformative. I wish I could say I have a documentation through my writing, but as I say in today’s YouTube video, I got silent…

The Get Honest Project: Recognizing My Flaws
If you’re not completely familiar with me and who I am, then you may not know that I was once a competitive gymnast. Gymnastics was my life, and I truly did love the sport…

The Get Honest Project: Unfinished Business
I was sitting in my room watching this past NCAA Gymnastics Championship when it hit me: so many of the seniors got a sendoff as they were exiting their time…

The Get Honest Project: The Root of the Intimidation
When I was ten years old, I went to Six Flags and desperately wanted to ride one of the big roller coasters. I measured myself against one of the height charts….

The Get Honest Project: Mindsets + Cycles
There is so much power in the way that we think. This has been proven in a variety of ways, we know this, and yet it can be so difficult to maintain a positive outlook…

The Get Honest Project: I Am a Sponge (and so are you!) Truth be told, we aren’t always as complicated as we make ourselves seem. Many things in life, in fact, are quite simple although we like to complicate them. So today, I thought I’d make a comparison between…

The Get Honest Project: Rediscovering My Voice
I’ve shied away from this calling for too long. Since I was a child, I’ve been drawn to the way language can create other worlds, how it transmits untold messages…

Lights Out

Lights Out 2020.
The world is constantly lit up. The fluorescence of the city. The blur of streetlights on the highway. The singular window aglow at three in the morning. And then there’s the internal spotlight...

Lights Out: I’m a Failure (Journal Session)
When I was little, our house had the most beautiful window on the top half of the front door. It had a faceted border that would cast rainbows all around it on sunny… July 26, 2020

Lights Out: Where the Fear Lies
How many times have you let fear stop you? Think about it for a minute. For myself, I can say that I’ve let it stop me dead in my tracks quite a few times. In retrospect…

Lights Out: I Don’t Have to Tolerate This
There are some things in life that are just both a blessing and curse, and there’s no way around that. For me, it’s my tendency to be overly empathetic. On the one hand, it helps me to…

Lights Out: Coming Back to Myself

Every so often, I return to the park I used to play at when I was a kid. I tend to just sit in the grass and write for awhile; it’s nothing fancy, but I find that those… October 16, 2020

Lights Out: Awakening

What does lights out mean? If last year was about getting honest with other people, this year is about getting honest with myself. 2020 has caught many people by surprise… October 21, 2020
