Successful Experiments with a Loving Universe

Experimenting With The Universe One of my favorite things to do is run “experiments” with the Universe and experiment with the art of manifestation. Similar to how people in the health and wellness spaces run tests for new supplement, diet, and exercise protocols, I enjoy testing, by somewhat unconventional means, how to discover, play with, and manipulate the forces that …

Let Your Pain Become Your Power (A Story of Post Traumatic Growth)

A few years ago I was sitting in a coffee shop with my friend, M. She half-yelled at me as I was sobbing into my coffee: “Your pain is your power. You are a force to be reckoned with my love.” I didn’t believe her. How could she possibly think this depression, this grief was my power? How could she possibly …

You Can Manifest Anything You Want in Life with These 2 Things

In May of 2017, I was wandering around the streets of Manhattan—stumbling in and out of the city’s many cozy coffee shops, sitting in the park journaling, and pondering the meaning of life.

Why You Need to Find Yourself in Your 20s

My thirtieth birthday is fast approaching and to be honest… I’m okay with it. I know that’s probably unpopular—I know I’m supposed to be worried that I’m getting “old” and that I should have my life sorted as I approach this important milestone.   But I was never one to do what I’m “supposed” to do. I prefer to not …

Breaking up with the “Good Girl”

Breaking up with the “Good Girl”  Flashback to University when I thought I had a stomach ulcer because of my crippling anxiety trying to be the “perfect” law student. Flashback to 2013 when I sat in my boss’s office and he told me I had to be “sweeter” in my approach to dealing with other lawyers. Flashback to 2014 when …

Thoughts // One of the best pieces of advice my parents gave me?

One of the best pieces of advice my parents gave me? Almost everything is negotiable. I used to cringe watching my parents negotiate when purchasing a high-ticket item. But I saw them chart their own success, wealth and happiness with the power of negotiation. So I started negotiating. At first, I was uncomfortable until I realised that most people will …

Thoughts // The Shaping of Destinies

My grandmother was forced to leave school and became a servant at 8. She cried and cried when they told her she couldn’t go back to school. My other grandmother gave birth to 9 children in poverty. My father barely finished primary school. He never wanted to discuss his childhood. My parents both emigrated to Australia from Croatia when they …

Surviving Loss in Your 20s

We meet regularly. This time we’re standing in his old office where the rooms are filled with memories. We embrace and spend (what feels like hours) together talking. I stare at him trying to absorb all of his features. The contours of his face, his smile, his hug. We walk together until he tells me that I’m not allowed to …
