Tonga – Home away from Home

While I was born in Tonga, I have always felt that Wellington was home. Maybe it is due to the fact that I moved at a young age and feel that I did most of my growing here in Wellington but every time I do go to Tonga there is always a sense of belonging [...]

First Heartbreak

Dear Future Daughter, I wish that I would have found a way to stop this from happening. I wish there was a way that I can allow you to avoid having your heart broken for the fist time. Nothing hurts me more than knowing that one day a young man out there is going to [...]

Taking Chances

"In the end we only regret the chances we didn't take" Every time I let a moment or chances pass me by, I sometimes ponder on the 'what if' afterwards for a long period of time.. and when I say long period of time, I mean for as long as it takes for me to [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Big Vs Small

“Great things are done by a series of small things brought together” In life we tend to think that whatever we want or is working towards is going to come to us straight away. We think that it is going to come to as soon as we work towards it but what we do not [...]

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 [...]
