It’s confusing out here. Life, that is—a looming spiral awaiting us, commanding us, demanding that we march forth and brandish ourselves as we step foot along it. It’s horrifying and wonderful and convoluted and tangled and vivifying. It’s the one thing we all have in common, and we’re all in it together.
I want to know what it means to be human. I want to seek truth through obscurity, see beauty in the twisted mirror, and rebel against the rigid. More than that, though, I want to know what it means to be Millennial. We’re a special breed, the maybe-youngsters, the half-adults—toeing the delicate fold between “teenager” and “adult,” somehow redefining those words as we go. Suddenly “adulting” is a verb, one that we’re all mimicking but we’re not sure if we’re doing it properly because we’re not sure if there is a proper way to do it. I want to know how to survive in this age of transition, and I’m realizing that the only way to figure it out is to do it together.
And, thus, Our Millennial Mind: the musings of the kaleidoscope life. Here, I investigate what it is to be alive nowadays, in everything from beauty to travel to our innermost selves. I explore what the word “beautiful” means; how to develop confidence and self-love in a body-shaming society; and how to maintain perspective when the world is crashing down. I’m on a mission to encourage, support, and enliven every lost soul who reads these words by championing self-love, self-cultivation, and outward exploration. I never stop fighting forward, and I’m always looking for the beautiful angle, even in the ugly tangles of life.
