From Let’s Talk

Thoughts 1.20.19

I always say I’m going to write more and I apolagize and then I don’t write again for like a month… It’s a vicious cycle if you ask me. I deleted my Instagram about a week ago – and the detox is good. Of course twitter had to go as well. Conclusion is – I…

Hi, Sorry (Again!)

I know I know. I’ve been MIA. Again. To be honest (as usual on this blog) I haven’t felt the inspiration to write. I’ve felt like a fraud, and rather than put out something that is completely unauthentic (as in you can smell it from a mile away unauthentic), I decided better to not post…

I’m back!

Let me start off with: thank god blogging isn’t my job or I would’ve been fired not too long ago. On another note hello again! It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve written anything – and I have a good excuse! I swear! I haven’t been writing any new blog posts, or updating my youtube channel…

Logging Off

If you’ve already read the title don’t freak out! I’m only logging off for the weekend off of all of my social media. I need to unplug. I have been spending much too much time mindlessly scrolling. And it’s not so much the issue that I’ve been scrolling so much (it’s therapeutic at times), but that I have begun to feel very anixous. Lately I have been so on edge that when my head hits the pillow and my eyes shut my brain races and keeps me awake for another 2-3 hours. I am tired.  The thing, is I don’t know what to…

Personal Development | Staying on Track & Inspiration

Today’s post is brought to you by Daria Hlazatova, who is the wonderful artist of the three pieces in this post.  I’ll start you off with five quotes that I find can help keep you on the track of growth. “Always speak how you feel and never apologize for being real.” “We are a spiritual being in a…

Finding Yourself

Finding yourself is never easy. If you’ve already found who you are I applaud you! Do you feel safe and at home in your skin? How did you get where you are today? Do you have any tips for me? I love a lot of different things, and trying to figure out which of those…

Back to my Roots

Hello my loves! For those of you who have been with me, you know that I am on the path to authenticity. I am constantly trying to find myself and better myself. The goal is to become self sufficient, to be able to accept who I am and be happy with who I am. I have…

Brand vs. Person

As I am creating my brand I find myself more and more aware that there is a difference between the brand Micalilu and me, the girl, Lilu. I want to be able to put my art and thoughts out into the world, and in order to do this I have to create this brand, this persona, in order to distance myself from…

I am a Fraud.

For the past couple of days I’ve been having a pretty serious identity crisis. I honest to god don’t know who I am anymore. Which is ironic considering that just a couple of posts ago I was preaching about having to be more authentic (it’s a process I suppose). On this blog I’ve been pretty honest. Posting the pictures I took of myself (or someone else took for me) and writing about things I was genuinely thinking about. So my blog is honest – probably the most honest thing I’ve put out on the internet recently (besides my youtube, which I’m kind…

Routine

Since I have been in Romania I have started, freshly showered, mask on, setting myself up in the kitchen to brew a tea and self reflect. I tend to write in my journal, write blog posts, or watch youtube videos while sipping on some combination of a “sleepy time” tea usually mixed with mint and/or…
