Living with a Hole in Your Heart

For the past few months, I’ve been struggling with the loss of someone significant in my life. It wasn’t the end of a life, but instead, the end of a friendship. And the grief, at times, has been incredibly overwhelming. As much as I understand that this person can no longer be a part of […]

A Lesson about Love

Several years ago, I came across a video that had gone viral. It was about Chinese culture and how the use of the phrase “I love you” was rarely used. My husband, who is Chinese, engaged in debate with me over the topic. I am of Vietnamese ethnicity but grew up in Australia my whole […]

More Than Four Letters

I remember not so long ago, I believed I would never find “The One”. It wasn’t so much that I wasn’t given the opportunity to find it, I just don’t think I had yet. Then I met my husband and found exactly what I’d been looking for my whole life. Thirty minutes ago, I waved goodbye […]

New Beginnings

If I had told my former self 5 years ago that I would soon be married with 2 kids – I wouldn’t have believed it. In such a short space of time, my life has changed. I was always one of those people that wondered to themselves whether they would ever find The One, but as […]
