The Victim Complex

I have been noticing patterns in my own behaviour lately and I am not proud of them. My biggest issue is what Iโ€™d like to call the victim complex. Among others, the Oxford Dictionary defines a complex as โ€ža related group of repressed or partly repressed emotionally significant ideas which cause psychic conflict leading to abnormal mental states or behaviourโ€œ. For me personally this means that I create conflicts internally and externally by putting myself into the position of a…

Into The Wild

I am quite a simple person. What I mean by this, is that I don’t need aย  lot to be happy. The most magical and meaningful moments for me are those of simplistic joy. Being in nature, having the sun shine on my face and being surrounded by people I love is all I need. On my 23rd birthday (time has been flying) I enjoyed so many moments of bliss. My sister and I ventured out with two bikes and…

However, I am grateful to have experienced them because in a way I grew from them and learned about what truly matters. Instead of putting…

Caught Up In The Moment

Lately, I’ve been caught up in the hecticness of everyday life. It’s been a while since I have taken a moment to write or take care of myself both mentally and physically. After a foot injury this summer I had difficulties working out or being active at all and completely let go of my healthy routines such as workouts. This combined with all of the temptations of food while travelling has led me to just kind of give up on…

Italian Romance

During my most recent trip to Italy, I took some time to shoot pictures in the picturesque city of Venice. With its canals, bridges and classic architecture the place has its own kind of charm. It is the perfect place to get lost and wander aimlessly through the smaller streets away from the busy crowds and touristic shops. Those little streets and canals are the true hidden gems of this city and exactly what I like the most. Here, you…
