  • A Space for Growth

    A Space for Growth

    This past Spring semester I intended to take five classes. In the midst of life’s uncertainty, I desire to always be one step ahead of the game. When the Coronavirus began to make the news, I was finishing up my 3rd eight-week class and about to start my last two classes for the semester. I […]

  • April Showers Bring May Flowers

    April Showers Bring May Flowers

    A common saying is April Showers Bring May Flowers and boy did April bring some rainy days. I cried a lot more than normal this month. Shedding old memories and the death of self-sabotaging behaviors as I embraced the discomfort that accompanies the growth process. My times were filled with yoga, journaling, and maintaining and […]

  • Christmas Spirit

    Christmas Spirit

    This year, Christmas has been very different for me. I am at a hotel, away from all I’ve ever expected Christmas to be. There was no Christmas tree, very little Christmas music, and a lot of confusion. I did, however, try and find time to focus on the true meaning of Christmas. In all honesty, […]

    June 2019 Intentions

        As Summer is in full swing, I have had some time to reflect. I had a month off of school and it looks as if I am planning to take Summer classes. I am spending the Summer working at the beach and I am grateful for this opportunity to embrace change and, ultimately, […]

    21 things I’ve learned in 21 Years

    My 21st birthday occurred earlier this month. It’s funny because a lot has changed since last year. Tears, renewed friendships, faded friendships, different fears, new discoveries etc. Last year, on my birthday, I found out that my dog, age 11, was most likely going to pass. She had gotten sick at the beginning of March […]

    Whisper Words of Wisdom: Let It Be(an)

    At first, I became nervous and overwhelmed that I did not meet my blogging goals, yet again, this past month. But then it dawned on me; isn’t this what my intention was for the new year. To take thing slow. To avoid getting ahead of myself and, therefore, stay true to God’s timing instead of […]

    2018 thoughts

    As 2018 comes to an end, I have been reflecting a lot more than usual. I can attribute this to the craziness of the year. I was overwhelmed much of the time whether it was due to sickness, loss, school, or just life circumstances. I let myself fall victim to a lot of unhealthy habits […]

  • Christmas Thoughts!

    Christmas Thoughts!

    As the holiday hectic is in full swing, things can get overwhelming. Last minute presents to wrap, family gatherings, last minute shopping, meals to prepare etc. It can be so easy to get caught in the hustle of things that we forget to find time to seek peace in the truth of what this holiday […]

  • September Blessings

    September Blessings

          Each day, I am learning more and more about myself and my body. I am realizing that my anxiety can be productive. I am, slowly but surely, accepting moments of rest as necessary, and I am finding happiness in all of God’s promises. I am spending time adjusting to new schedules and […]
