The Recovering Pessimist

Helping pessimists see the bright side of life without losing their "half empty" roots.

Friends Surrender to #Love


Imagine being friends with someone for years. The two of you are extremely close. Those around you swear that there’s more to the friendship because you both are so in tune with one another.

The lines become blurred. You don’t see each other the same way anymore. Can’t really pinpoint when and why this is happening but you know something is pulling you both in.

It is in this moment that you realize that you’ve fallen in love.

So many thoughts.

What if he/she doesn’t feel the same way? But what if he/she feels the same? Where do we go from here? Can we go back to being just friends? Is it worth possibly losing a friend if this doesn’t work out?

Despite the uncertainty, your conscious wants you to do one thing: Surrender.



Love Songs: Alicia Keys “If I Ain’t Got You”


You can have all the money, fame, and power in the world. None of that matters if you don’t have someone to love.

Love Songs: “That’s When I Knew”- Alicia Keys


The moment you realize you’ve fallen in love, captured in song. I couldn’t have said it any better.

Grateful: “Lesson Learned” #XD31


We all have that one song that keeps everything in perspective. For me, it’s “Lesson Learned” by Alicia Keys featuring John Mayer. Mistakes are inevitable, yet they serve as the biggest lessons learned. Enjoy!

Thankful: Journal #XD31


You hold all of my secrets, fears, random thoughts, and memories. When emotions become so heavy that sleep is no longer peaceful, I share all with you.

I keep you hidden. Others won’t understand the contents of your pages, judging what they see on the surface.

I’m thankful for the volumes that silently hold so much.
