Forget regret or life is yours to miss. No other road, no other way, No day but today.

My home is in Australia, but I left my heart in Ghana.

  • I miss you every single day that we are apart. Sometimes its kind of good,  being so far away from you means that I get to live my own life but it also means that i have to fight my own battles as well. 
6 months on and we still talk every single day, and it never gets boring. There is something so gratifying about carrying out a relationship based purely on conversation. We have built a level of trust and committment that I have never experienced before.
I am so excited to see you, to be held by you, go on adventures with you and to fall asleep next to you. Only 6 months to go babe!

  • Last weekend I was lucky enough to be gifted with some of my late grandmother’s most precious jewelry. A diamond ring in a vintage setting & the gold charm bracelet she wore every single day. 
Today I had the bracelet cleaned and resized to fit my wrist, its gold and I wear silver so it will be for special days. 

As for the ring, there were 5 rings and four women in my family who had to choose them. I was the last to choose as I am the youngest, I chose this beautiful silver one as her engagement ring, wedding ring and infinity ring had been taken. My Pa told me that she had just brought that ring for fun. As it turns out my Grandma had this ring personally designed, the diamond setting is a unique design for the size of the diamond and the smaller diamonds in the band were placed there after the ring was made. 
I believe that I was meant to have this ring.. i know that Grandma wanted me to have it. I plan to give it to my future husband so it can be designed into the  ring that I’ve always wanted. It will be all the more special to have an engagement ring fitted with my Grandmother’s diamond. 
I love you Grandma, thankyou for this gift.

  • Why I feel sorry for you

    Sometimes I feel sorry for you.. I’ve been in the place you’re in, thinking you’re happy when really you’re a mess and everyone can see it.
    Sometimes I feel like people should give you a break, but then I remember all the shitty things you’ve done, things you continue to do and I suddenly don’t feel sorry for you.
    Stop putting people down to feel better about yourself. Negative association when introducing people to others just makes you look petty and childish. I hope you grow up soon, I hope you can see how much the people around you have changed and that the people who aren’t in your life anymore have made it that way to escape your poison.

  • "1) Learn to put on your bracelets and zip up your dresses by yourself. There will be times when you will be alone.
    2) Get on a long plane ride. Look out the window. Understand the immensity of our world. Understand your insignificance. Understand your absolute importance.
    3) Press the send button. If you don’t say it now, you never will.
    4) Do not sneer at happiness or roll your eyes at sadness. Be aware that apathy is not healthy.
    5) You are more than the amount of people who want to have sex with you.
    6) That pit in your stomach when he doesn’t text you back, it shouldn’t be there. No one should be able to control you like that.
    7) Shopping is cathartic. Buy the shoes and deal with one-ply toilet paper for a while.
    8) It will get better, but it will never be perfect. Learn to live through the small moments of happiness. When they disappear, remember they will resurface.
    9) I promise that cookie will not change anything (except that it will make you smile).
    10) Please, please, take care of yourself. You are everything to somebody. You are everything to your self. That alone is enough."
