Rings, weddings, and babies. Think your story ends here?

It may have only just begun and perhaps not that way,

You see your book is in the writing

and a new chapter’s underway

Some people spend years believing in a beginning and an end,

While their story continues, and few understand

how others make big life changes without looking behind

and realize that life is to live and to always

be alive.


Some people are doctors, and dancers, and lovers.

I am a dreamer

I am a teacher

I am a sister

I am a healer

I am a dancer

I am a singer

I am a counselor

I am a feeler

I play volleyball, do yoga, listen to salsa, and try to paint

I am not sure where else life will take me, but my anxious heart can’t wait

to fill a book with true love stories and find new passions everyday

to remember that nothing is permanent and that life is a game to play.
