The Greatest Power You Forgot You Had

The things we think and believe are often things we've been taught and have adapted as truths. Whether it's religion, values, morals, ethics, etc., the ideas and thoughts that surround these topics are typically not our own. As a child, most of us are taught the difference between right and wrong. Lying is bad, honesty is good. Having a job is good, not having one is bad. Following religious beliefs is good, sinning is bad. And...

The One Who Got Away: The Aftermath

Now that the dust has settled and realization kicks in, you realize that you lost a great thing, a gem, and, in some cases, there's no getting that back.   What do you do next?   You check yourself. Go deep, below the surface. Be honest and vulnerable with yourself and admit where you went wrong. Not where the other person went wrong, but you. Then, do better. Do better with yourself, do better in your platonic relationships, and...

The One Who Got Away

The saying goes, "you never miss a good thing until it leaves you," but the truer statement is, you never thought that good thing would leave you, so you failed to cherish it while you had it.   During my "dating" life, or lack thereof, I've questioned what my purpose was with the people I met. I've always wondered whether my purpose was merely to show the people I encounter what unconditional love was. To give love...

For any relationship to work, there has to be teamwork, collaboration, and a willingness from both (or all) parties to...

Plant Your Seeds On Fertile Ground

Many of you are sitting on seeds that are plentiful—the kind that will produce a bountiful harvest. The problem? You’re too afraid to fail, too afraid to try, too afraid to do the work. Farming is not a glamorous job in the least, but it’s necessary. It’s a source of food and nourishment for people, and what you have to offer, that bridled passion you’re sitting on because you’re afraid, is nourishment for other people....

How I Mastered Social Media Algorithms

So, we’re in the third month of 2018 and I don’t believe I’ve posted anything new on the blog. I could say I’ve been uninspired, preoccupied, working behind the scenes, etc., but that wouldn’t be the truth. Not completely anyway. Part of me shudders when I think about not constantly creating new content for those who follow my blog or even follow my social media pages. Social media gurus will tell you that you need to...

This Has Changed My Life

It’s my birthday! Today, I am twenty-six, and I’m so grateful to be alive and well and able to experience another year of life. As I reflected over the last couple years of my life, the growth has been amazing, and it has brought me to a place I didn’t ever think I’d be in, and for that, I’m grateful. For many of us, we have our lives planned out of the things we want to accomplish by...

Another Year, Another List Of Goals

The last few months of this year have been such an unexpected plot twist, but the experience has been so rewarding. Preparing for this new year, I really wanted to stray away from the traditional new year’s resolutions I would usually set because this year has proven to me that things are going to happen as they should, no matter how I try to plan it out. So, my goals for 2018 are as follows: To...
