Sunday marked the 4-year anniversary of one of the worst days of my life. It was also the full moon / lunar eclipse in Leo, which rules my 10th (career) house. As a result I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about how I want to show up in the world. I’ve been contemplating the types of the things I share on this little platform, and the things I don’t. Scrolling through my Instagram feed, I realized that, for the most part, I’ve fallen into the highlight reel trap. Aside from a few posts here and there, I mostly share inspiration and moments of happiness. While this isn’t bad necessarily, I’ve come to realize that the things I haven’t shared yet are possibly the most impactful and needed. So this year I’m taking a pledge to share more of myself, my story, and my work with the world. Starting now, with the truth about how I REALLY moved to LA. [TW] Continued in comments...
Wrote this to give voice to the pain that comes every time a loved one tries to move me along to a healthier place. Some people can’t truly engage with the pain of trauma. But it’s not on us, it’s not our fault. They can’t give the care to others that they haven’t given to themselves. #boundaries #writingistherapy #selfcare #selfkindness #selfcompassion #cptsd #traumarecovery #whennobodyunderstands #whennobodycares #cptsdwarriors #abusesurvivor
Anxiety is a constant ticking pen(yeah, I stole that line). The kid in the back of the class clicking his pen repeatedly. And you snap. You snap because you can't take it anymore. The constant sound and desperate need for attention. So, you snap at the kid. You attack him. Even though it ends up hurting yourself. The guilt takes over and your hands start shaking. You think you're fine. The kid deserved it, right? Your heart rate goes up and your vision gets blurry. Sometimes there are tears, but most of the time there's just fear. You breath. Hyperventilate. You stop breathing, start sweating. Thinking, maybe hoping you're about to die. The kid might kill you at this point. He screams at you. You feel scared and small. You crumble in pieces. Then the kid stops. It's silent again, but you lay on the floor. Extreme fatigue is taking over. Anxiety is a constant ticking clock. Even through depression, when you are numb and all alone. It is the one thing that reminds you that you'll never be alone. You'll never be free. #mental #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalillness #ptsd #depression #anxiety #suicide #selfharm #recovery #recoveryispossible #life #survivor #warrior #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #guilt #alone #anxious #writer #literature #writingistherapy #therapy #writing #free #poetry #bipolar
Life lesson 56: Don’t deprive yourself of what you love///Writing as always been so therapeutic for me. This last year I have completely forgotten to take the time and write. What a great release it was to sit in bed and let it all out. #writingistherapy #writing #journaling #journaleveryday

I went through some dark stuff last year when I started getting my health and my weight in check. Skipping old habits, living in a conscious manner and in a way that was in line with my principles was so so hard. I didn’t think it would turn out like it has when I went through it and to give my emotions room, I decided to write down some of my struggles. Check out the website if you like. It’s only one poem for now and it’s in Dutch (my mother’s tongue). We will see how these poems will develop. I will publish more over the next few weeks. 🤓🚀🌱🏃🏻‍♀️💪🏻 #authenticself #millionairemother #ditchdairy #dutchvegan #weightlosstransformation #fitgirlyvonne #emotions #stuffigothrough #writestuffdown #writingistherapy

Sometimes you are hurt so bad that you are not hurt anymore. Sometimes you just stay there wondering that if only this was the good you were waiting for. Sometimes life becomes so tough that you stop questioning yourself because everytime you question you get no answers but a bundle of questionable questions. The emptiness inside you starts to show up on your face when you are left to die amongst the monsters of darkness that haunt you every moment. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #writing #writeups 📃 #writeupdaily #writingistherapy #writingismypassion #writingmakesmehappy #writingsociety #writingsession #writingcommunity #writingislife #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #writersblock #writersthoughts #writersfeelings #writerstears #inkedtears #inkedfeelings #inkedthoughts #inkedwriter #writingdairy #followforfollowback #follow4like #followforspam #followforfollow #likeforfollow #likeforlikes #cocainetripped
”When He Doesn’t.” -Link in bio.
~~ They say look ahead (forward) and forget your past, I’d say look backward at your past and learn from the mistakes you did, Only enough to not drown in them and enough to do something constructive out of it. Use it to be a better version of yourself and when you are ready, hop on, the future awaits. All of the changes cannot happen in a moment, but if we try continuously it will set a pattern in our lives. Just like a water droplet can dent a rock, if it keeps on falling for years, drop by drop. However, pour the water in one go, it will only dampen the rock, for a while, with no prolonging effect. ~~
The goal. Just finishing up 1st round of edits on book 4 in my series today. Whew! Off to my publisher and betas it goes!
I had to repost this from yesterday because I noticed I'd made a typo error! For the rest of the week I'll be posting a different poem each day to commemorate my mom's birthday. ❤ #grief #griefislove #healing #writingistherapy #writersofinstagram #writersofig #poetsofinstagram #poetry #poetryofinstagram
Moments ⏳. ... There is something that happens deep within ones soul when their worries slowly start to melt away. This moment, this pause, this time to reflect on if this worry is really even worth your time. It is in this moment where our potential lives. Live in these moments, breathe through- even if just for a second. Eventually they’ll make up our lifetime.

I was writing some ‘Love’ themed poems last night as it’s Valentines Day soon and I thought how much writing makes me feel warm and ‘squishy’ like that falling in love feeling. Does writing make you feel certain emotions? If so, that’s the time to start writing. Grab a notebook and just write and watch as your emotions and thoughts spill out onto the page. It’s truly wonderful ❤️
There are people that suffer from depression or anxiety. There are also other who are in a dark place because of overwhelming stress from finances, relationships, death, illness, etc. I wanted to write something encouraging for those in that place to keep pushing. It too will pass and your smile will no longer be forced. #poetry #poetrycommunity #poetrysociety #poetrylovers #poetryisart #poetryislife #poetryisalive #poetryianotdead #poetryislove #poetryishealing #poetryistherapy #poetryis #poem #poemofinstagram #poemofig #poemsociety #writing #writingisfreedom #writingistherapy #writingislife #writingsociety #writingsofinstagram #writingcommunity #depression #anxiety #stress #smile #life

When your truth becomes your truth. I refuse to forfeit my truth and my reality to keep the good graces of others. This poem is my invitation to sit in the present moment even if it’s an uncomfortable place to be. I will not filter the life or the moments I live in order to make it fit with the frameworks of other people. I’m the only one who has lived this story. #traumarecovery #cptsd #cptsdrecovery #abusesurvivor #selfkindness #listentoyourself #sitwiththepain #dbtskills #acceptanceandcommitmenttherapy #mindfulness #mindfulnesspractice #writeyourownstory #writeyourpain #writingistherapy
It's January and I decided it's about the time to share a bit of my own work. It's nothing big just a tiny poem about January. It's not perfect but what is it. Maybe someone will like the positivity which I'm trying to find in everything, is helping sometimes. BTW I'm sorry for my handwriting, it's not my strongest thing. #poetry #creativity #writingistherapy

Love 💞. ... There are moments of doubt, of fear, of anger, of jealousy, of disbelief, and the list could goes on for days. When you find yourself confused on how to act or what to do or say in these times, simply don't react at all. Don't search for the answer or try to manipulate the situation into the outcome you think it should have. Just sit, breathe, wait, and when in doubt, always always always choose love.

Letter #5 on my blog is for the ones who didn't know better. There are days when you want to dust your shelves and reorganise the room to accommodate changes within. I write to let go and this letter has helped. It's not always book #retailtherapy that works 😅 . This gorgeous #barnesandnoble copy of #thesecretgarden is a great pick-me-up on so-so days though ♥️ .

People say “I never thought I’d be here,” Doing this or that, or whatever it is They’re doing. I say, I didn’t plan this either. I just lived my life the best I could Handling the day-to-day ups-and-downs And trying to enjoy most moments. What I do recall, Is the second I looked at him And thought, “This is what I don’t want.” It rocked my world Until I was all that was left Standing there clutching myself. And trying to figure out how to Begin again. And I guess I did. Start over in some ways. And in others, I was merely getting back to Who I was inside. The girl I had left behind When my life filled up with All the things That needed me first. So, here I am. Not asking if I ever Thought I’d be here. Just knowing what I don’t want And living my best life.
