There are things that I said or did when I was younger that are really shameful. I’ve said and done quite a few hurtful, inconsiderate, or otherwise problematic things in my time.

That being said, I’m proud in many ways of the man that I’ve become. I’m a different person today than I was at previous points in my life, and the changes have been nothing but positive. I would hope that people wouldn’t begrudge me for the things I’ve done in the past. I’d hope that they might think in the back of their mind that I grew up and got better (which I have). But at the end of the day, I only have a responsibility to be good enough for myself and the people I love most in life.

I’ve learned that doing things wrong can often be a better way to learn than doing things right from the get go. I will continue to stumble, fall, and pick myself up. Sometimes it’s hard to leave the past behind, but I look forward to the ways that I will continue to grow as a person in the future.

Happy 10 months old, baby girl! 

You are my reason to keep on going and for you i wake up everyday. From the moment you wake up, until the moment you fall asleep I am keeping myself away from bad parts of me. You don’t understand yet that you are whole world to me and without hesitation I’d do anything to make you happy. You are my only sunshine <3

I love you and I always will. 

Trever and I are no longer together. We love each other and he is my best friend. What has happened is difficult to explain in a way that makes sense, but after many late nights and difficult talks, we knew, in the deepest part of our hearts, that we are not right for each other romantically right now. We have growing to do, and people to become, and we were hindering each other’s growth and development. There were difficulties and differences in our relationship that I think prevented us from truly falling in love with each other, which is painful to admit.

In another way, I have never felt more compatible with someone, as friends and as soul mates… It just reinforces the idea that your soul mate doesn’t have to be your lover. You can share your soul with someone who makes you think, care, laugh, love, learn. And that someone doesn’t have to be your boyfriend.

This does not mean in any way that we will stop loving each other, spending time with each other, experiencing life together. He is my best friend, my other half. But for now, he can’t be my boyfriend. Maybe some day, after we have discovered the people we are meant to be, we will come together again. Maybe we’ll find someone else along the way, but I know he’ll always be there. For a while, we were moving forward side by side, arms intertwined, two parts of a whole. But we were holding each other back, no one could advance without the other. Now we’re just facing the world back to back, and I know when I need him all I have to do is reach behind me and his hand will be there.

I’m hurting still, because sometimes love isn’t enough to make something work, and the right decisions are often the hardest. But I know I’m not going through this alone. It’s just going to take some time to heal.

IMF says Ebola not to upset Africa’s overall growth - Xinhua

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) director for Africa Antoinette Sayeh speaks at a press conference in Harare, Zimbabwe, Oct. 23, 2014. Presenting the 2014 IMF regional economic outlook for Sub-Saharan Africa, Sayeh said the unprecedented Ebola outbreak in West Africa, which has claimed 4,500 lives, will significantly hurt the economy of the three hard-hit countries — Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone, but the impact on the continent’s overall growth is minimal.

The best 10 months of my life! How do I slow down the time? Can’t you forever stay this small? I do want you to grow, but at the same time I wish I could keep you this sweet and small for myself, so bittersweet.
In two more months you will be one, which is probably the hardest of your birthdays for me, but I already planned ahead the smallest details and even if you won’t remember that day, trust me I will.

A Break-Up Letter to Those Feelings That No Longer Serve Me.

Okay, okay. I see you. I feel you there. Yes, you exist. I will no longer deny your existence. But don’t you understand? Don’t you understand that I don’t need you anymore? You are not vital to who I am. You are not a crucial aspect of my existence. You have been there for me in times of sadness and sorrow. Hell, you have perpetuated that very sadness and sorrow. But I’m okay without you, you know. I appreciate what you’ve taught me. You’ve helped me grow in ways I cannot explain. But you’ve held space inside of me for longer than I care to admit. So, alright. Fine. If you come by again, I will welcome you for a fleeting visit. But you cannot stay.
