Finding My Way When the Map Was Torn
On Christmas of 2010, at the age of 25, I faced a moment that profoundly shaped my understanding of identity. It was a cold afternoon, the kind where festive cheer warms hearts, but mine was about to feel an icy sting. My mother, who had invited me over, was too intoxicated to open the door. Instead, it was my little brother, his eyes wide and innocent, who let me in. That moment hit me hard. It was like looking back at my own childhood, where my mom's battle with the bottle and screaming fights with her boyfriend were more the norm than Christmas presents and family dinners.
Mapping My Tomorrow: Crafting a Life Vision Beyond Goals

Morpheus' Gift: The Birth of Dreams
Once upon a time, in the primordial era when the gods were just beginning to understand their places in the mortal realm, Morpheus, the god of dreams, found himself facing a problem. This minor deity, a master of illusions, had a grand capability that could craft visions more beautiful and terrifying than anything that existed in reality. But Morpheus was stifled by his limitation: his captivating creations were solely for his eyes. What use were such grand illusions if there were no spectators to appreciate them?
The Quiet House at the End of the Road
The road was lined with a riot of foliage, trees and shrubs bathing in the late afternoon sunlight, bleeding shades of red and gold. Our house sat at the end of that road, the sun setting over its crown like a tired king, a metaphor that Jack and I often joked about after a few glasses of wine.
