As a late bloomer, I've often felt my peers were passing me by--establishing enviable careers, finishing up graduate degrees, and intertwining their hearts in marriage.

I've always been a restless soul. A few years here and there, and too soon a decade has passed. Whether in life or love, motivation eluded me.

But sometimes it just takes time to grow into yourself. You can give yourself that.

akori is about being whimsical, and acknowledging that even though life's a race, no one is timing you except yourself.                                                                                                                      -Akori
