You’re Stepping On My Toes

You’re stepping on my toes and it really hurts, but I can’t seem to find my voice to say ouch! You’re stepping on my toes, and it really hurts. I’m frantically moving around trying to escape, you ask me if I’m okay, and I lie and say yes. As I cry inside and stifle my…

Joy Comes in The Morning

Dear God, I came to the stark realization today that what we think really matters doesn’t even matter at all. Today I am grateful for this joy in my heart. Even though we are walking through the valleys and the shadows of death, your light is with us. I can see the victory on the…

Happy Thoughts

I find that I am happier when I write. I’m always thinking, so writing helps me clear my head out. I’m able to think through problems and come up with solutions when I write. I’m able to empty out my negative thoughts and fill myself with positive ones when I write. Writing is my liberator….

Transforming Love

There are so many things on my mind today. I don’t even know where to begin. I’m going to take a deep breath then count to five and the first thought that comes to mind is what I’ll talk about. *inhales* 1,2,3,4,5 *exhales* Transformation. Transformation, aye? Yes. I have some thoughts and feelings about that….

A New Normal–Balance

Many of you may know me, but few of you know my story or of my search for growth. For years I’ve been on a journey to the center of myself, and while I am still traveling to my core, I feel like I am closer to figuring out what I am about. I’ve gotten…

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,…
