Being Unhappy With Self: The Single Self

So I’m going to make this a three part series because I have a lot more to say on this topic than I thought. I started out making a post and it was beginning to get too long so I figured I would focus on each topic on a post by itself. I hope that…

Who’s In Your Corner?

Im late on getting this post out but I had to take a mini vacay for some much needed away time. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and the fact that I have good people in my corner topped it all off. I’ve been so overwhelmed by my own thoughts and ideas for reaching my goals that…

Pleasing Others Won’t Please Yourself

Now this isn’t something I had too much of an issue with when I was younger, but now that I’m getting older I’m becoming more self-less believe it or not. I’m always wondering now how I can be of help to someone else whether it be friends, family, or strangers. I began to notice that…

It’s Okay to Rest. Your Body and Mind Needs it.

So let’s talk about something that has weighed heavy on my heart for quite sometime and it wasn’t until a recent conversation that I was able to find relief. So my sister Brittany came to visit me a month ago and after hanging out all day we were naturally tired. At this time I was…

Im usually not the type to go out much because I don’t consider myself a good dancer. I would say I’m still in the beginning stages and could use a few lessons or tips. It’s not that I don’t try, I just don’t seem to have enough rhythm. After years of turning down outings to…

A Poem for Aunt Kim

God sends earthly angels to guide, watch over and protect.The short time spent with us is what we do not anticipate or expect. You impacted the lives of so many and somehow still found time to continuously give plenty. Through life’s challenges, pain, and suffering, you found the strength to persevere. You never missed those…

Are you hungry?

One thing I stray away from the most is writing. Not because I’m scared of the opinions of others, but because I don’t want to face my truths. Most of my writing comes from a real place that I in some way envisioned or experienced. Writing can be fulfilling but also very draining. If I…
