Amor fati…

Three weeks ago I was approached to be a guest on a podcast series launching this summer. Naturally I screamed yes before actually thinking it through (and yes I am well aware that saying yes on impulse may one day be my downfall); but I was excited about the project and downright stoked to be…

SclScn 2.0

If you follow me on Instagram, then you likely already know that I have decided to re-launch SclScn. When I initially created this site, I was just starting to figure out who I was and what would fulfill me as I navigate my way through life. This blog has been a platform for every emotion…

The art of gratitude

I’m a big fan of birthday’s… in fact, they’ve always been my favourite thing to celebrate. Birthday’s represent significant beginnings (from the moment you take your very first breath and every milestone and achievement you experience thereafter). As such, I’ve always used my birthday as a time to reflect on the past, reassess my priorities…

The art of trusting

There’s been a lot of chatter regarding my last blog post so please treat this as a continuation piece. I get it, you all have questions – Who is Mr Nike Store? Why don’t you seem to have trust issues? Let’s talk about trust (and not talk about my avoidance of the very popular question…

The art of healing

I always seem to put this blog on the back burner when life gets busy; but as the 4th quarter of 2018 rapidly approaches, this seemed like an appropriate time to re-engage with you, my digital friends. Intro: In the past, I’ve unapologetically used this blog as a digital note pad. Some of you have…

Things I’ve learned

We live in a time where social media accounts (of people we don’t even know) make the rest of us feel inadequate more often than not. With that being said, I decided to share some of the “Things I’ve Learned” over the past few months – because in the chaos of our day to day lives I…

Leap of faith

I came across a quote recently that said “the destination is not what’s important; what’s important is the journey.” We are urged throughout our life to be cautious and aware of our actions. But sometimes, we need to let loose, we need to take chances and risks. Trial and error is an important part of our social development…

The space around me

Finding the perfect time and perfect place to write is not as easy as it seems. The hardest part is not the choice of space or moment, but rather a combination of the two. Your surroundings must stimulate a desire for creativity and simultaneously provide an outlet for your expression. I find being around other…

Solitude

Many people believe that choosing to be alone is cause for concern; and without a doubt, companionship and the process of giving and receiving love is one of the most necessary things in life. However, over the last few years I have firmly believed that I would rather be alone than be in a relationship that…

Why I write

From an early age I made it a habit to jot down my thoughts and feelings. Sadly, I stopped writing during my university years (when I was told I had to write). I feel as if I lost the only outlet that helped keep me sane. I’m hoping that this new journey will allow me the opportunity to…
