01.TRUST IN IT. Collection 2021


So… why did I create this?


I think a lot of us can attest to the difficulties this past year has brought and the impact it has had on our mental health. Anyone that knows me knows I’ve always had a plan in life and from the outside looking in, it seems like I have everything figured out. (Also, a reminder that social media is a highlight reel).  But truth is, this year has been tough and has thrown me for a loop. It has brought heartbreak, medical school rejections, loss, anxiety, lockdown, uncertainty, etc. During this crazy year, I told myself every day to “trust in it”. Whether that be in the universe, faith, the process, my support system, myself… I had to trust in the fact that life was working for me and not against me in these moments. Yes, this year sucked but it also forced me to grow as a person. I can confidently say I am not the same as I was a year ago. Obviously, being vulnerable (especially on the internet) is a very scary thing. But I think it is crucial to acknowledge that not everyone is perfect, and that life isn’t perfect either. Asking for help is okay, not being okay is okay, needing support is okay.

This is also just a reminder that you never know what someone is going through, so to always show kindness and compassion towards others.
