Be True Be You

"Nothing can dim the light that shines from within" Maya Angelou Do not be afraid to show them the real you. I find that so many people hide how amazing they are at something and how talented they because of the fear of being talked badly about or being scorned for being to prideful. We [...]

Giving up

"You're allowed to scream, you're allowed to shout but do not give up" Everyone goes through hard times. While you can see some people's struggle, some are very good at hiding theirs. They seem like they have everything sorted at their life is perfect but just know that they have struggled at some point in [...]

Act of Kindness

"Kindness is a language that the deaf can hear and the blind can see." Treating others the way you want to be treated. In life we see many sides of the human race and the different personalities that each person can have. We see great acts of kindness to disgusting behaviour that leave us questioning [...]

Stay Humble

"Keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground" -Teddy Roosevelt One of the many things that I find hard to do and constantly struggle with is staying humble and staying grounded. I seem to always want to boast about my achievements and to show off how well I have done without [...]

Auckland Trip

It was five days of family, food and fun! There is never a dull moment whenever I spend time with family and this time round was no different! From meeting new family members to seeing those you have not seen in a while and catching up on the times that you have spent apart. Seeing [...]

Hurt me with the truth

"Hurt me with the truth but never comfort me with a lie" Would you not rather have people be straight up with you and tell you when something is happening than to find out about it later after everyone already knows? If something was happening to me, I would hope people would have the courage [...]

Positive Thinking

"Always believe something wonderful is about to happen" Positive thinking is something that I struggle to do. To think of the cup half full rather than fall empty, to see things in a more brighter note and to take the good things and commit that into memory rather than the bad things in life. Over [...]

Appreciating People

Appreciating People There is a point in every person’s life where they stop and reflect back on what has happened so far. It may not a long reflection or even an important one. It could even be a reflection over the last few days. No matter how short it may be, it is still an [...]

Family

I have a lot of be thankful for and one of the biggest is my family. Right now, I am spending as much time as I possibly can within the next five days here in Auckland with family on my mother's side. Nothing compares to feeling like you have come home. First of all, we [...]
