hi, I'm bella!

& I BELIEVE YOU GET TO DECIDE WHAT YOUR LIFE BECOMES

   ife isn't always what we want it to be. It doesn't always go the way we hope or wish—especially when we're kids. When we're young, we don't get a say in how we're raised, the things we learned, what we grow up believing and how our brains are developed.

But when we grow up, all of that is 100% up to us.

And that's what I do. I'm a lifelong learner, transforming my life into what I want it to be—and I help others learn to do the same.

self-awareness out the ass

IT'S NOT EASY, BUT I'M HERE TO MAKE REAL CHANGE, & NOT ALLOW LIFE TO GO BY WITHOUT CREATING IT.

WHO AM I REALLY & WHAT IS THIS ALL ABOUT? 

IT'S EASY TO SLAP SOME PICTURES ON A PAGE AND CALL IT "ME"...

But what's the real stuff? You can look at the pictures above, some from a year ago, others many more than that. What do the pictures say? I'll tell you....nothing. Not a thing.

Because you can't know someone just by an image frozen in time (say hello to social media, but that's a topic for another day).

The first thing you should know about me is that I fully believe we don't know enough about ourselves, and that self-awareness is the key to so much of what happiness is and where we find it...

And I know exactly who I am, though I'm still discovering more about myself each day.

my best girl,
Lux

so who the hell am i, then?

I am insatiable in my thirst for knowledge and understanding of myself and human behavior.

I love deep conversations, even with just myself, that probably stray on the "overthinking" side enough to overthink myself into worry, into anxiety but I'd rather over think than never think.

I live with intention, and don't just let life go by without rhyme or reason.

I don't share enough about myself. And other times, I share too much.

I love taking pictures of what goes unnoticed the most.

Food is my favorite, all types, preferably the kinds I've never tried before from a country I wish to visit one day.

My family has more of my heart than nearly anything else, though they might not know it. And I wish they did.

Movies, TV shows, books...stories...are my love.

I'd rather live for myself than for anyone else, ever. Always. This life is mine.

If you can't tell, I love the dramatics...I'm a writer, after all.

I have more love to give than I know what to do with, and wish I could give myself more of it.

And I love easily, but don't fall in love easily.

My childhood was rougher than I would have liked, but the truth is that I wouldn't change it even if I could, because while I walked away with traumas, I also walked away with some of my favorites parts about myself:

My drive and independence. My inability to put up with any shit. My immense capability to do whatever I want, however I want, because I always needed to figure it out myself.

I'm not perfect, at all, but I don't believe such a thing exists. But I try, and I learn, and I try some more, and at 26-years-old, I have so much of what I've learned to share that I don't even know what to do with it all.

And that's largely why I'm here (why you're here, even). To share what I've learned in the hopes that I help open eyes to the fact that this live is ours, it's yours.


& IF YOU'VE MADE IT THIS FAR, I'D LOVE TO LEARN FROM EACH OTHER.

& I believe YOU GET TO DECIDE WHAT YOUR LIFE becomes
