There’s a common misconception about the star sign Pisces.
No, this post isn’t about signs or astrology. Yes, Pisces can be emotional and sensitive, but I’m sure 100% of the human population feels these two emotions as well. I can sometimes get caught-up in my feelings. Doesn’t everyone? As I grow older and experience different things and as I meet different people––both men and women, I’ve learned to not lean neither here nor there in terms of certain feelings. In some moments, I’ll feel really low, and in other moments, I’ll feel great joy, but in almost all situations, I always try to remain neutral. I like to see both sides: the good and the bad.
Feelings shouldn’t be viewed in a negative way. We’re human. We feel. It’s easy to sit on situations and feel bad for ourselves, but it’s those exact situations that eat us from the inside out and sometimes kill us. Don’t let them do that to you.

As I continue to live day by day, each day seems to be a balancing act.
I find myself trying to balance work, having a social life, working on side projects, and working on myself. When responsibilities from one of these things increase, the attention towards another lessens. That’s where I need to find a balance. I’ve found myself neglecting my blog––my creative outlet––because work gets out of hand at times. When the workload increases, I find myself having less time to create content for this passion project as well as finding less time to have a life I can enjoy.
As I grow throughout time and with life experiences, sometimes it’s nice to take a step back to look at our “film” in its entirety instead of what we see directly before us.
We all have our highs and our lows––whether it be within a day or our entire life.
I’ve spoken to people about how my year has been so far, which includes plenty high and plenty low, and it seems I’m not alone. Others, too, have had their moments both good and bad as one month of 2016 comes to a close. As we go on living our lives, we have to remember to stop and breathe when things get rough and tough. It’s imperative to have moments and time to go into recovery; let it be a massage to decompress or having a lazy day to Netflix and chill with yourself. Remove yourself from reality to nourish your body. You deserve it. You deserve that break––that time to breathe, to recollect, to reflect. It doesn’t hurt to put life on “pause” to ensure you’re okay.
