This is a photo I didn’t want to share because my toe doesn’t point straight up.
Silly right? I’m in front of a freaking sunset, overlooking the ocean and I’m worried about my toe? Ridiculous!
I’ve been sharing more of the photos that bring me joy even though I know they won’t do well.
Part of that is for those of you that follow (just keeping it real) but a bigger part of it is for myself.
If you JUST saw my photos or met me in real life you probably wouldn’t guess that I struggle with depression and self esteem issues, but you also wouldn’t know how those things have shaped me.
Of course I wish depression wasn’t a thing. And I absolutely miss the younger version of myself that thought I was the bomb.com 😎 and was super confident just being my weirdo self🦄. Which sometimes I am, and other times I rethink/overthink how I should said or done something differently for months afterwards.
But unfortunately that’s not the world we live in... so in some ways I’m grateful. Grateful for the struggles that I share and especially humbled by the ones I haven’t built up the strength to yet.
I’m grateful for the things that try to hold me back because it’s those things that help me to be more empathetic and compassionate towards others. Also it’s that much more rewarding when I push through!
When someone wrongs me, my first instinct is assuming that they’re in pain. If I hadn’t faced my own, I don’t know if I would be the person I am today.
I live by a theory that if you share your darkest and most painful thoughts/fears/experiences/traumas/etc., they no longer can hold power over you.
By bringing them into the light, they become less scary and heavy.
It’s like how things seem scary in the dark, but then you turn the light on and all of the eerie dark corners and what-if’s disappear.
If you need to share something, talk to someone, or have questions feel free to comment or send me a DM. I’d love to be there for you and return the favor ☺️.

When life gives you olives, make olive oil! Or...body wash! 💦 Whaaat?! I like to try hotel bath products when I travel, so when we were in Italy 🇮🇹 and had all kinds of bath products provided that were made with olive oil, I was all in! Would my skin feel soft? (Yes!) Would I smell like a salad? (No!) We loved the products so much, we brought some home! Do you try hotel bath products when you travel?! ✈️
You are beautiful inside and out - lovely bath products are just the icing on the cake! 🎂 Remember whose you are - a daughter of the King!
With a bridge you can lead many people. But you cannot carry three on your back.

My NCKU friends and I hiked Flame Mountain last 6.29.2019 thinking that it was my first time to visit the place .
When I started posting photos of this trip last week, my friend @jameslin1004 from NCU actually told me that we had our field trip in that same mountain last 2016! Crazy that I wasn't able to recognize this! Hahahaha! To be fair, we're located at the downstream portion of the watershed during the 2016 trip while my NCKU friends and I stayed at the peak during the 2019 trip. I guess this explains why I haven't really recognized Flame Mountain... right? or we can just stick to the fact that I'm a terrible student at all. LOL. just kidding...or not. XD .
PS: Flame Mountain looks better when viewed from the peak! .
MISTAKES ARE PROOF THAT YOU ARE TRYING. REMEMBER THAT!☝️🙂

Из моих заметок, пока мы ехали в Грузию👀
«Впереди беспросветные степи, выжженные беспощадным солнцем. Позади почти 800 км, республика Калмыкия не вызывала дикого удовольствия, как ни у водителя, подвозившего нас до дороги на Ставрополь, ни нас, уставших от постоянного солнца южных сухих городов.
Где-то вдалеке остались воспоминания из трассы Саратова и ночевки в Волгограде. В плеере играла simple man lynyrd skynyrd. Волосы впитывали горячий ветер, тянущийся из открытого окна и я мечтала о том, насколько скоро смогу увидеть горы. Как всегда чертовски тяжёлый рюкзак, забитый непонятными вещами, не останавливал перед видами, которые я себе нафантазировала в грузинских сёлах и деревнях.
Водитель затянул очередную сигарету, дым быстро разошёлся по салону, этот запах стал уже привычен, хоть и не особо любим.
Сталкиваясь с постоянными приключениями, ты не думаешь о том, что тебя может что-то беспокоить на данный момент. Ты свободен душой и никто в такие моменты не может отвлечь от истинной цели.»
