In Christ, and Love.

Amazing things happen when you find yourself in Christ. All of a sudden, I’ve found my voice and I know and understand my worth. Even more beautiful, I’ve gained wisdom and the spirit of discernment. I have so much peace knowing that I don’t have to battle because I know they’ve already been won. For…

Love inspires me.

Someone asked me the other day what inspires me, and I didn’t have an answer then; but I have one now. Love inspires me. I think that sometimes we have this complex view of love. We think that love is feeling bound and we prove it with grand gestures, or complicated things, or that we…

It will be okay.

Today was a good day, but I am sad. The last few years of my life were nothing short of amazing. I had the most phenomenal experiences, and though I’ve moved on to other chapters of my life, I still carry the memories of these of experiences with me. Now this is not a bad…

Love Letters On the Mend

I grew up in a culture that taught us to be obedient, not confident. We were taught to be good to others, we were taught to respect, and also how to be kind to others, but many of us don’t get an important lesson. The chapter that covers being good to yourself was skipped in…

Absolutes in Uncertainty

What I know for sure is that I love you and I’m filled with so much peace when you’re around. I know that I want you to stay and never go away. I want to spend many more nights in each other’s arms, cuddling and enjoying each other’s warmth. What I know for sure is…

Yesteryear…

I don’t know about you guys, but my year ended with a bang. No, seriously. It ended with a bang! I got into a car accident a week before Christmas. I won’t get into details, but it wasn’t my fault; and I’m happy to report that we’re all doing well. Three weeks before my accident,…

It’s hard.

I’m having a hard time with something tonight. I’ve heard the saying, be good to those who are good to you. And I’d like to know think that I’m good to my tribe. But what I’m struggling with is when people aren’t good to you. What do you do? I know Jesus says “turn the…

I’m walking away…

I’ve gone full circle with my emotions and I’ve decided to accept that something I said didn’t bother me actually does. I’ve been angry, I’ve been sad, I’ve distanced myself from certain people and I’ve contemplated revenge, but after going through all the motions, I’ve decided to honestly just walk away. I don’t want to…

I don’t believe in New Years resolutions. I feel like the whole “new year, new me” quote that people use is almost a recipe for failure. Lol. Instead, I believe in new day resolutions and the constant strife to improve and better one self. As the year is coming to a close, I’m looking back…

The layers keep shedding.

I feel like I’m under constant scrutiny and some people are always waiting for me to “slip up” so they can point it out and say “aha! I got you!” Guess what, I KNOW I’m not perfect. And I’m actually okay with that. Yes I react to somethings, but guess what!? I’m only human. And…

Routines

If you really know me, you know that I don’t usually deviate from my “norm.” I’m a stickler for routines and patterns. I go to the same restaurants anytime I eat out, I order the same meals, I always opt for the same drink and I drive in the same pattern daily, switching lanes at…

Confidence, not Compliments

I’ve concluded that blogging everyday/sticking to one style of blog (i.e my gratitude journal) is just not going to work for me. Not because I don’t have to content, but because I have too much content and sometimes get stuck on what it is that I want to share! So instead, I’ll blog whenever (hopefully…
