Owning it.

The last year has completely rocked me to my core. In fact I still have moments where I experience total & utter breakdowns.

You know the kind where you basically collapse, can’t really breathe and the whole world seems to stop? Yea… those.

But you know what? Any kind of forward motion, is moving forward. And every day I feel just a little bit stronger than the day before.

And no this is not a sympathy post. This is me being open and honest, because it just seems like the right thing to do.

So now what?

How about a quick reminder of who I am and how far I’ve actually come.

{If you follow me on IG @myssydneyt  – you might recognize this as well}

This is me.

I consider myself a creator who is obsessed with any kind of kineses related to the body.

I am a total spazz and I can be incredibly stubborn, as well as super competitive. I also get really defensive and I carry a lot of emotion.

But you know what else??

I live for passion. That is what drives me.

I want to drown in it…. live for the beautiful moments where I feel the most loved, seek spontaneous adventures, and meet all kinds of new people.

I love people and I love making connections. I love how small our world feels at times too.

And I’m not perfect. Not even close.

In fact I think striving for perfection is boring.

I want to be quirky. I aim to be weird.

I wish to travel often with no clear plan.

And although I overthink & over analyze each and every situation, trying to prepare myself for what lies ahead…. I also over love.

I think I have a lot of love to give and I want to share it.

Thank you to all of you who have become a big part of this crazy journey of mine.

just remember…..

you are allowed to terminate toxic relationships.

you are allowed to walk away from people who hurt you.

you are allowed to be angry and selfish and unforgiving (to an extent).

you don’t owe anyone an explanation for taking care of yourself.


with love,
