Rushing into something

Ever feel like you are rushing into something? Rushing to get home, rushing to get out the door, rushing to turn the page into a new chapter in your book called life? The other day I realized that rushing into something only makes time go by faster. It doesn’t always mean happiness, neither. Let me […]

You just have to remember one thing…

Not everyone has the same heart as you. I’ve learned this lesson a few years ago. No matter what you do for someone, no matter how soft you touch someone’s heart, you can never expect to receive the same treatment. If you feel like you’re swimming oceans for people who wouldn’t swim a lake for […]

Gravity is a b!tch

One of my favorite country star artists, Miranda Lambert, has a song called Gravity is a bitch. Her lyrics are phenomenal, they outline exactly what it’s like to get older. Gravity on earth plays a lot of different roles. It keeps our bodies standing upright on the ground, it usually returns any object down when […]

The nights before morning

The nights before morning are always a mystery. Unfortunately a good day doesn’t always call for a good night. On the other hand, a single good day could be a hint to achieving a good life. Life is a mystery and you never know what a 24/hour day will bring. Life has the tendency to press our inner spirit. We […]

Life & the balance of imperfectness

Imperfect, not. Swing your hair back and forth and smile. How do you think about your life? Pure and simple as it is, life doesn’t think about us the way we want. If it did, all living things would be perfect. Obvious enough, life alone is imperfectly perfect. It is defined as a continuous movement […]

Another day in paradise

Currently away in paradise right now, one thousand miles away from home; but yet I am home. I am resting my head under a roof that belongs to the keeper of many of my childhood memories…my father. It’s a new life here for him, it’s a life he has adjusted to over the last few […]

A long road ahead

The busy lives we live are approached day by day, and little do we acknowledge the worst case scenerio we may uncontrollably encounter at any given time. We all get into our cars, and we drive whatever road we have to take to get to where we are going–to essentially "check-off" another item on our […]

The girl in the mirror isn’t me

This image…this reflection…this person. She isn’t who I see in my head. Who I see in my head is someone much different and much uglier, and completely mismatches what I see in the reflective oval. How well can you visualize yourself in your mind? Do you see your distinctive features as clearly as you see them in the mirror? Do you see your […]

Teachers or parents: Who do we count on?

I distinctly remember several of my school teachers smelling like crisp coffee bean and I could never forget reaching for the mints, made by Life Savers, sitting in a round and white porcelain bowl on their desk top. The way they all dressed: shirt tucked into a pair of sleek slacks, blouse puffed out just enough to look comfortable. Black belt strap, with a shiny metallic belt buckle. The […]

Life Lessons and Wisdom

We all learn something new everyday, right? Whether it be in the workplace, at school, at a friend’s house, or in the comfort of our own home: we all learn something new every day. Aside from the obvious fact, I wonder, how often do we take the time to reflect on all the things we’ve […]
