6:30, my alarm sounds, and I sluggishly get out of bed. The usual routine of getting ready is in action. I take in the daily bible verse and send a morning hello to my boyfriend. Walking back into my room, I decide on a brown dress and brown boots. I start to get dressed and … Continue reading Cherish The Small Things
As I walked towards the metro station, with the crisp air biting my feet, I began to think about my life. "I'm not where I want to be. I'm not doing what I intended on doing. I'm not going where I wanted to go," I began to think. Our lives are masked by what we … Continue reading Seasons Change: You Can Always Start Over
I found myself complaining. The cold air and wet sky more than sprinkled over bystanders. Why didn't I wear rain boots? I'm so stupid. If these people don't get out of my way?! Everything was crowded, slow moving and unfortunate. Everything was wrong. I was wet, delirious and over it. I walked down the road and … Continue reading I’m Blessed
Last Sunday marked the day that our nation was attacked. The day that countless lives were taken. The day that no one expected, but those affected will always remember.

Why Are You Doing This?
Stop making excuses. Stop saying why you can’t. This is your moment. Your moment is now. Brush off the dust and start again. Pick yourself up and follow your life’s journey. If it were easy, it would not be worth it. There would be no satisfaction in doing it. You are capable. You are strong. … Continue reading This Is Your Moment
I'm not going to lie. This week has been filled with irritation, which has stemmed from the usage of public transportation, relying on someone for the means of getting somewhere, doing something. These past few days have been filled with waiting and hoping (that is that things will be on time and that I won't … Continue reading You Can’t Always Be In Control
We hold on to things that have no place in our lives. Past relationships. Unhealthy connections that hinder more than they nourish. We keep holding on as the baggage begins to accumulate. We add on worrying about the life ahead and pain from something another person has done to us. We add on sorrow from … Continue reading The Art of Letting Go
Patience. One word. Two syllables. So much is behind this thing that I struggle with on a day-to-day basis. It’s hard to tell yourself to slow down when the world around you is constantly moving. I am someone who likes things done at an exact time, on a drawn out schedule, within the box I … Continue reading Patience: It’s Easier Said Than Done
