Our Talents

We were all born with special gifts. Some sing, some draw, some dance and some write. Nurture your gifts. When we don’t acknowledge our gifts–we deny them and in so doing we are also denying ourselves. I used to love drawing. When I was younger– I was always drawing– in class, at home, and anywhere…

Change

Don’t be afraid of change. The surest thing in this world is that our lives will always be changing. Some seasons will be sunny, and some will be blue. What matters is your attitude towards change. Don’t be anxious about the future. If you are dwelling in the past, you will feel sad and unsatisfied….

How to Move Past the Past

Refrain from getting emotionally invested in something that happened in your past. Acknowledge it, but don’t let it hold your attention for too long. Bad breakups, family disputes, broken trust, hateful lies, etc.etc, can still be in our thoughts long after the event has expired. But if you let yourself get lost in those events–…

Running

I was running so fast to nowhere. Then, I didn’t know where I was headed when I was with him. All I knew at the time, was that I wanted to run to wherever he was headed. This was the quickest way to lose myself. Now I am headed somewhere else and my destination is…

My Savior

It is only when I look in the past that I feel sadness and loss. But  I am not lost anymore, and I know that I am not alone…You are here with me, loving me and embracing me. Your love is like no other. You are my World, you are my Everything. My  mistakes can…

Endings

I wish endings would stay endings. I wish periods would be final. But some things are rarely really over. I wish I didn’t still feel this way. I wish I could forget about you– as quickly as you forgot about me. Yes, I talked to a few others– but none meant to me what you…

On the Road Again

I went down a path I thought I knew. I was working and going to school. In my mind, I was going to graduate from UNLV as an accountant. I had it all planned. I would graduate and then find a great job that paid good money. I was going to pay my debt, move…

Purpose

We all come into the world with gifts…and it’s our job to use them wisely. Sometimes, we get so overwhelmed with life– that we forget who we are and how much we are really worth. I am not talking about finances or net worth– I am talking about our innate value. God made us in…

Lost and Found

It’s been 3 years since my last post. What can I say? “A lot has changed,” is an understatement. I was in love, now I’m not. I was attending UNLV, now I am not. I was hopeful, now I am careful. I had a lot of colleagues, now I mostly interact with my family and…

Modern Love

Ever since I was 15, I have dreamed about getting married and forming a big loving family. As the oldest of four, it always seemed to me that I would be the one to get married first. For one, I was always in love. In High School, my closest friends were mostly male. I could…
