I was a teen mom. This is my story. @ CoffeeHeartMind

I Was A Teen Mom & This Is My Story

My early teen years was just like any other… I started high school and had loads of friends. I was determined to find myself as I had always “tried to fit in” in elementary school. I was an honour student throughout! High grades. Teachers loved me. Very social. Never got into trouble. I was taking two dance classes outside of school (hip hop and jazz) and I was a choreographer for the […]


To My 20-Year-Old Self

We’ve been through a lot, don’t you agree? We’ve had to grow up so fast. It’s actually quite tiring thinking about it. We thought that once we were in our twenties it would get better. We have always dreamt marrying our one and only when were 27. Hope that we have a career by then. Hope that we have money in our bank account. Spoiler alert! – it doesn’t go the way […]


To My 37-Year-Old Self

There are a lot of things I wish for you. There are a lot more things I am curious about. Here are a few… + I hope you’re happy now. Truly happy. Inside and out. + I hope your health is better + I hope you are no longer in pain + I hope you are no longer battling this psoriasiform dermatitis + Do you still get migraines? + Do we have […]


A letter to my 16 year old self

To My 16-Year-Old Self

We learned a lot this year. And I mean *A LOT*. Thinking about it now, that was a lot for a 16-year-old to handle. Good on you! If I were to compare ourselves and the events occurred between our 16-year-old self and our 27-year-old self… I’m pretty sure we could write a book. How did 2004 start? We were still choreographing. I believe we just finished a competition just before Christmas and […]


What helped me during my darkest days

What Helped Me During My Darkest Days

I started the #BrighteningMyDarkestDays hashtag because I’ve been there. I’ve had my dark days where everything is so dark and everything seems so pointless. I also knew that it wouldn’t last, but I just didn’t know how to get myself out of it. So I started #BrighteningMyDarkestDays in hopes that we could all share what helped get us through it in hopes that it’ll help others through their darkest days. Let’s help others get out […]

Just Because You Can’t See Me Struggling Doesn’t Mean I’m Not

I am in pain And I struggle everyday. I constantly argue with myself. It’s tough to have your mind tell you That you’re not good enough… That you’ll never be good enough…. That no one will read this… (Because noone will care…) Why would they want to? Why should you get out of bed…? Don’t bother doing anything… You’ll do it wrong anyway. And then they’ll get mad at you. Do you […]


To my 8-year-old self

It may not seem like it now, but it will get better. Trust me. You just have to stay strong like I know you can. The children you’re going to be surrounded with in the next couple of years just don’t know. I know that it is difficult and that you will cry to yourself quietly during recess and lunch. I know that it is difficult to leave a place you grew up […]
