Hello! Yvie here, likely to be hunkered over a coffee writing out notes for another idea, plotting my next creative adventure to keep the fires burning in my heart, or simply exploring doodles and photo filters. Aside from self-pep talks, when we face seemingly insurmountable obstacles, it is the human spirit—which has stood the test of time—that knows our trials are lessons for us to work with, learn from, and surpass.

Recognise your struggles, and work with them, they are part of your story.

No, it won’t be easy. Nor should it be. But, boy, will you discover more about your life when you do.
