One wrong turn can leave you with vanished dreams.

One piece of inspiration and yet another beautiful creation is born.

One act of great impulse could change your entire life.

One year ago today changed my entire life. I sat on my Aunt’s couch, anxious at the release of this baby of mine. Curious about how long my creativity would last. Nervous of the possibility that people wouldn’t enjoy or relate. The KiWord, in just one year, has changed me for the better. I have grown to see that life is not about the validation of others but simply living for me. I went into this venture wanting my blog to become this high and mighty next-best-thing and here I am 365 days and (enter beautiful number here) of subscribers later, just hoping my wornew-years-1098694_960_720ks continue to give both myself and others the release (or whatever it is) that we all may be yearning for. I’ve been asked so many times, “What is your blog about?” and so many times my soul wants to send people to the “About Me” section of my blog that no one ever really reads. #YesShade. But instead, I look awkwardly and respond, “honestly everything”. People may judge such an answer, but its the truth. Sometimes I have a desire to empower the next woman, and other times I just want to present my way of viewing life to the world. Sometimes, I even use this platform to speak some sense into us confused and ever-changing 20 something year olds. I’m not attached to just one thing. Why not you ask? Because my life is not like that so why should I be? I love, I hurt, I laugh, I wonder. My blog is all those things warped into one and it is what is is. Sue me.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I’m flawed. As a 22-year old (my, I’m so comfortable saying that here) I am still defining who I am. I’ll admit that. I’m never satisfied with the things around me and I continuously try to have my life lined up- never works; and 2015 opened my eyes up to such a reality. But here I stand today, stronger than ever, ready for 2016 and all that it comes with. The good moments, the bad lighting, better blogging, and ugly timing – all of it!

Today’s Keyword: transition |tranˈziSHən, -ˈsiSHən| (n.):  the process or a period of changing from one state or condition to another

If there is anything that I’ve learned from 2015 is that life is a beautiful thing that we misuse and abuse. We take so many things for granted and truly don’t appreciate things nor people until they are all gone. If you do everything and live the life you want, there won’t be any time for regrets. Who cares if people what people think? Love passionately this year. Dream bigger and act on them better. Seize the moments. This is my year of transition. My thought process has evolved and I couldn’t be more happier to say that life is so much better when you are living it the way your heart desires! Live for you and forever remain true to yourself.

On this first day of 2016 and the birthday of my blog, *hits a horrible Milly Rock*, I’d like to propose a toast:  to life, to creativity, to transition, to evolution.

Wishing you all much peace and prosperity this year!

Happy Tr(YOU) Year,
