She is a difficult girl to deal with. She is happy now and suddenly turns mad. She has crazy meltdowns. She tends to overthink. She thinks that she is not good enough sometimes. She has a bad habit of being too sensitive. She has crazy mood swings. She tends to push you away sometimes. She tends to question your intentions. She has trust issues. She sometimes gets lowkey possessive. She is sometimes sorry why she is acting such. When she becomes immature at some point, she regrets it. It is just that she has been to crazy shit in the past so she has to build her walls so high. At some point she becomes dramatic, but she wants you to stay. She just wants to know until when can you deal with her? #longpost #repost #thruthickandthin #breakingmywalls

Warning: long post I'm going to steal a quote I recently saw on a friend's wall and it sums up a conversation I had with another friend: "When you look in the mirror, what do you see?" I see an insecure person who was scared of a lot of things. I see someone who likes to be in the back because it was always easier to be hidden. I see.... a shy girl who eventually got out of her shell.🐚🐚🐚 But from jumping out of an airplane to teaching in front of people, I see someone who had more guts than before, who wasn't scared of anything for a moment. But most of the time, I see someone with a big heart ❤❤❤ and a big appetite 🍕🌮🌯🍔🥞🧀🍝🍰🎂🍞 I see a stronger, happier person who is striving to be the best with herself and not with others. I see her wanting to be loved by others but learned it comes when she can love herself first. I see that life doesnt come easy but the experiences are what shape who she is. Regardless of flaws and imperfections, all I can say is: I SEE ME!!! 👧👧🐰🐰 #philosophical #selfreflect #mirrormirror #inspirationalquote #lovethyself #love #lovenothate #selfie #smile #longpost

A then and now pic. It's been a year since I first started practicing calligraphy. It has been a wonderful journey. Even now I sometimes can't believe I use watercolor as my medium currently (I abhorred watercolor when I was a kid) and do challenges online. From faux to brush (and hopefully nibs in the future *crossed fingers*), it had opened up a can of rainbows inside me that I didnt know I have. The Ripple Scribbles account was made due to two primary reasons. First, it was to document my adventures as I dive in the world of creativity. I have done works many of which I was not able to save just because I didn't like it. If I messed up one stroke back then, it would instsntly go to the bin. It was only recently that I realized I appreciate the experience that comes with mistakes. I was able to learn. But the thing is, it's not just about learning (nor documenting), I put up Ripple Scribbles to give back to the community that inspired me to pursue creativity. The posted pieces of calligraphers, illustrators and various artists online as well as the people supporting me in my creative endeavor had been giving me not just inspiration and motivation but also life. These opened up avenues to express myself. It created ripples in me (hence the name). And I am truly grateful for that. #sortofathrowback #gratitude #appreciation #thankyou #thenandnow #handlettering #calligraphy #calligraphyph #calligraphycommunity #moderncalligraphy #moderncalligraphyph #brushcalligraphy #brushcalligraphyph #journaling #bujo #bujoph #watercolor #watercolorph #documentthejourney #creativityjourney #pursuecreativity #longpost

Today I cried. For anyone that knows me that's a big deal in itself, but to also admit it on social media that's a whole other level. Now before anyone says anything like "I'm so sorry," or "what happened," or "tomorrow will be better," let me tell you I don't need that I don't want that. I'm not posting this because I want sympathy or "likes" or to know other people are in the same boat. I'm posting this because I needed an outlet. I needed to scream that I wasn't happy or perfect for a moment into a void that is seemingly always perfect with the possibility that one day I would hear my echo whisper back to me that it's ok not to be happy or perfect all the time. I needed to remember that I put on masks of "happiness" and "positivity" and "everything being fine" when I feel like I'm drowning. I'm not broken or damaged and I don't want anyone to treat me like glass because I wrote a post into an abyss of the internet. I just need the void to have something and the water to stop rising and the abyss to not be so big. To answer the questions that people might have still. Yes, I'm ok. No, there was probably nothing that could have kept it from happening and there's really no one to blame, but me. Yes, tomorrow will be better. What happened was a long day of load-in and tech with a high amount of caffeine and a lack of food and frustrations I've kept to myself much too long. This all started off fine and led from me being content, happy and productive to being loopy, tired, zoning-in-and-out and not processing my thoughts to being jittery and awake to finally end hungry, angry, exhausted, feeling under-appreciated and stressed about things I shouldn't be stressed over, yet. So yes, yes I did cry in my car on my 40 minute drive home from a 13 hour day in a dark theatre on a nice day with very little breaks. And yea I wasn't ok, but you know what sometimes that's ok. #icriedtoday #iforgotstuff #iwillremember #iamokay #stage manager #tired #hangry #longdaysjourneyintonight #NotTheShowImWorkingOn #personal #theatre #longpost #sorrynotsorry #thanksforbeingmyvoidtoscreaminto #AViewfromtheBridge #timeforbed #tears #itsfine

Change is not merely necessary to life it is life. It can be difficult to leave a long-term life situation behind, even when your inner-wisdom tells you that things aren’t right and it’s time to let go. At this point, you can choose to let go and endure the sudden pain of leaving behind the familiar to make way for a new chapter in your life, or you can stay and suffer a constant, aching pain that gradually eats away at your heart and mind, like a cancer… until you wake up one day and find yourself buried so deep in the dysfunction of the situation that you barely remember who you are and what you desire. DONT DO THIS TO YOURSELF !!!!!!!! EMBRACE CHANGE 😉 Here are 3 tips to edge you on. 1. The most powerful changes happen in your life when you decide to take control of what you do have power over instead of craving control over everything you don’t. 2. Most people make themselves unhappy simply by finding it impossible to accept life just as it is presenting itself right now. 3. The secret to getting ahead is to focus all of your energy not on fixing and fighting the old, but on building and growing something new. #positivitytruemindfulness #bibiinnovations #longpost #longpostalert #changeisgood #embracechange #thoughtoftheday #thoughttherapy #motivationalquotes #inspirationalquotes #wordtoliveby #transformation #transformationinprogress #thinkbetter #livebetter #lawofattraction #naturephotography #mist #jeskynscountrypark #monday #makeithappen #itsagreatday

Honestly just trying to relax with something that doesnt have to be serious. I've been having a hard time trying to figure out how to balance my new job with investing in painting. On the bright side, I'm almost done with two commissions! They've been really fun, and different than I've expected them to be. I really enjoy finishing a piece and seeing peoples faces light up ♡ I always hope to bring people to that "wow" feeling that I get when I see something truly beautiful. After I finish the two commissions I plan to finish my abstract painting as well. #longpost #painting #watercolor #acrylic #busy #newseason #elephants #favorite #randomness #dowhatyoulove #lovewhatyoudo #animalart #untilnexttime

To You Who Can't Give Another Chance Just Because You Once Did, You understand that we are all not perfect. But still you are upset. You say that maybe you've done things I have done but youre still mad. Yes, I was too much. Yes, I was wrong. Yes, I was bad. Sooo bad you maybe wanted to curse me. Maybe you wanted to slap me and hurt me the way I did to all of you. You said that youre not really affected. You said that you dont really care for you expected it before. Those words hurts me the most. You had judged me already. Even before I made a mistake. Based on your experience, once, you were soft enough to listen and believe in love and second chances. I supposed it didn't turn out so well that now you are so cold and hard. But know this, your mistake, your pain, does not define the decision of others for not all people are the same. People change ALL the time. And though you may be afraid to trust once again, yes you are afraid, because anger makes us a coward, your cold and hard front does not make you strong. It wont make you happy. And just because you can't be happy, you will pull others inside of your dark cave with you. Then get mad if they won't do so. Then get mad if they are strong enough to take another risk unlike you. Risk is the enemy of fear. Dont let it consume you. #longpost #forgive #forget #moveon #risk #secondchance #love #randomthought #fear #happy #morning

One of my goals for #2018 was to read more - and thanks to mhpubliclibrary and audiobooks I’m well on my way to reaching my reading goal. I just finished #TheHateUGive by angiethomas which embodies so many of the reasons I wanted to dedicate more time to reading again this year. Books are so powerful and authors like Angie really continue to push me to want to live my best life - and to appreciate everything I have more. If you haven’t read The Hate U Give I would STRONGLY recommend it. Huge thanks to juniper00 for suggesting it to me! Also if you have any other amazing reads I shouldn’t miss out on PLEASE tell me and I’ll add them to my ever growing to-read list. #longpost #readinglist #2018goals goodreads

On the topic of #happiness a new friend this wknd asked me for advice on how he could achieve it since he thought I seemed so happy/optimistic. Here's what I told him: I wasn't always this way, nor am I always this way. Happiness is a choice. It does not just come like the bus, every 10 minutes, so you can hop onto it. You have to seek it out. Feed yourself with positive books, movies, programming, activities. For a year, every day I listened to motivational speakers on my Spotify. Get rid of #friends who enjoy misery, less the cloud hanging over their head drenches you, too. Do not attach your happiness to impermanent things or people. And if you want to change the course of your life immediately, simply do the exact opposite of what you are doing right now. Because whatever it is you are doing now, is not making you #happy. I'm glad he asked my advice because people are embarrassed to admit it sometimes and think they are alone. You are not. So here's to a happier holiday wknd! ❤️ #motivation #wordstoliveby #dontgiveup #dontstop #dontjudge #love #inspiration #sunshine #BlackGirlMagic #lovethyselfie #yogagirl #sundayfunday #qotd #motivationalquotes #behappy #friends #selfie #longpost

Those who know me best know one of my toughest battles is to love myself. Unfortunately, I don’t love myself enough. That doesn’t just take a toll on my personality but also in my love life when Azim tells me he thinks I’m pretty or how much he loves me but I don’t accept it easily. So then why all these pictures of myself on social media? I think it’s for me to personally put myself out there, put my flaws, my face and body out there that I’m most self conscious about, perhaps as a way to help learn how to love myself. I know how it feels to not love oneself, and I’m trying my best to fix that all because Azim taught me that for him, I’m beautiful inside out ☺️ so to all men and women out there who’re in the same boat as me, try and start loving yourself. Give yourself some importance, start learning slowly how to embrace yourselves, and I’m sure it’ll get better and happier as the journey goes by for us all :) Azim Maknojia, thank you for being my support system! 📷 amaknojia . . . . #selflove #loveyourself #innerbattle #chicago #falltrip #trips #longpost #thoughts #selfworth #perspective #tripphotography #travel #travelphotography #travelersnotebook #windycity #travellife #bloggerstyle #throwback

I don’t often post pics of my dog ( #Lilybug), mainly because she’s got her own Instagram ( lilybugadventures - she’s cute, go check her out), but today is a special day. One year ago, #PermaRoomie and I went looking at dogs, specifically for research only purposes. We did fine for the first three shelters - looking, petting, snuggling, no adopting - and then, at the fourth shelter/event, we saw her. She was sitting at the back of a crate, shaking slightly, and I knew - we couldn’t leave her. She had a terrible story - tear-jerking and hard to listen to - and she needed love. I wouldn’t change one minute we’ve had with her - every cajoling to come eat or play, every walk, every scary moment, every triumph, every heartbreaking loss, every single moment. I am so grateful that I get to share my life with you, silly girl. Love you so much. #LilyBug #LilybugAdventures #SillyLily #Selfie #Dog #LongPost #FosterDay

Film Review: Molly’s Game First I would like to thank Dymocks and eone for giving me the opportunity to see Molly’s Game in a private screening in Gold Class on the 17th. I had a great time and check out my insta story for some pics. Molly’s Game is the directorial debut by Aaron Sorkin and is a film based of the true story of Molly Bloom, former Olympian turned “poker princess”. Sorkin did an amazing job for a debut (can’t wait to see his next project) and the script and acting are standouts. The script is really the star of the film. It’s filled with lots of dialogue and narration but snappy and witty to create a very engaging experience through the leads. The script is also detailed with lots of information (about poker) which is reflective of the writing style Sorkin uses, also seen in his other projects like “The Social Network”. The acting in Molly’s Game is fantastic throughout. Jessica Chastain never fails to deliver, and as Molly Bloom, this could be one her best performance to date. She takes command in every scene and is Oscar-worthy although she couldn’t get a nomination this year. Idris Elba is also fantastic as her lawyer and delivers a strong supporting performance that stands up to Chastain’s strong lead in the film. Kevin Costner also has a small role in this film as Molly’s father and there is one scene in the film between him and Chastain which is one of the standout parts of the film. Both Elba and Costner give performances that are underrated and add to the film along with Chastain’s lead. The film can be seen as long with a 140 minutes running time, but it’s the script and performances that keep you engaged. Another thing I really enjoyed was how beautiful Jessica Chastain looked with the various dresses/outfits she wore throughout. This film could be compared to “Miss Sloane” (2016) but I think Molly’s Game is the more enjoyable film. The story is quite unique and you really just want to see what happens next to Bloom. Overall a strong debut from Sorkin, driven by an amazing script and acting. Check it out if you haven’t seen it: 8.5/10 Have you seen #mollysgame and did you enjoy it?

On this edition of do as I say not as I do I pull 410ish for a semi challenging double to kind of see where I lose a bit of form. I was in Chicago at a seminar so the deadlift wasn’t a planned pull but my competitive spirit came out. Then I drove home to get in my actual planned lift of all the squats. Def not the smartest thing but it all worked out. What I was supposed to do was work up to a Squat single at 305, reverse band singles at 345 and 355 and then the worst part, paused high bar narrow stance at 205 for 6 reps. Finished off with Cossack squats and reverse sit ups (controlled spinal flexion). I’m not sure if I like or hate the fact that the reverse band set up I have to use pulls me forward which is a major weakness I’ve been working on with all my lighter sets. The high bar paused squats I am super focused on keeping my knees forward and throwing the bar backward. Side note, I hate not following the plan as it’s written but this is probably the first time I’ve really deviated much in like a year so that’s solid. #longpost #squat #deadlift #legday #technique #strength #powerlifting #competitive #exhausted #survived #liftheavy #liftheavylivehealthy #strengthtraining

Phase 1 ✅ after several temptations and a couple rough days... To say I'm PROUD is an understatement as I have gone 7 weeks of eating clean and 4 weeks of working out HARD! Eating clean this long has never happened in my LIFE and I have never felt this GOOD. Usually 3 weeks in once I start feeling better the cheats start happening and the laziness comes in the workouts but not this TIME 👏🏻😀 Honestly the pictures don't represent how I'm feeling BUT I am ok with that because it's how I feel on the INSIDE that matters 💖lots of mindset shifts happening the past 7 weeks with listening to podcasts, reading and participating in my mastermind groups. Mindset is EVERYTHING and without my Fit family and personal development I wouldn't be as happy with these pictures as I am right now! Bring on Phase 2 💪🏻👏🏻 . . . . . #Healthybodyhappymind #fitgirlsrock #fitgirlsdontquit #mindsetiseverything #outdoorwomen #mountaingirls #workoutinspiration #workoutmode #workoutwithme #workoutdaily #strongisthenewskinny #fableticsootd #topoteam #fitmommy #momswholift #Mindsetiseverything #youareworthy #wellnesswarrior #createyourlife #affirmations #stepintoyourpower #createyourhappiness #mindsetshift #choosejoy #ohheymama #valueyourself #longpost #proudofmyself #youcandowhatyousetyourmindto

I love this! It's so spot on! I've been through many situations & experiences in which I would go back, give second chances & try to make things work..But it always felt forced. The reason we do this, (the majority of the time), is because of our comfort zones. We gravitate back towards what we are comfortable with because it's what we are used to & also because of fear. The fear of new beginnings, changes, taking risks & trying new things. The negative side to this? You end up wasting valuable time, forcing what wasn't meant to be (and time is money, people!). If you know that on the other side of fear lies your happiness, by all means go for it! Take risks & don't look back! ✌❤😊 #Sunday #RandomThoughts #ILoveQuotes #FeelingPoetic #ImStupid #IWriteTheseDown #Lol #TalkingFromExperience #TakeRisks #MyMotto #ChangeIsGood #GoForward #NotLookingBack #LongPost #MyMind #FullOfEndlessThoughts #AndCornyJokes #KeniaInHerFeelings #KeniaBabble #Chatterbox #AndIfYouDontKnowNowYouKnow #DontMindMe #NoWorkTomorrow #Yipee #HaveAGreatNight
