I’m making it

I thought things were tough, until I realized the strength of my shoulders. It’s amazing the weight they can withstand, even when I’m unable to. No matter how much pressure is applied, they never lose their form. I used to hate my shoulders, because of how broad they are. Now, I understand the reason forContinue reading “I’m making it”

Customized

When I’d look at certain people, I used to covet the things they had. Whether it be their “picture perfect” marriage, kids, or “fancy” lifestyle, I wanted it. However, no matter how much I wanted it, I couldn’t have what was theirs. Even if it were given to me, it’d never fit, because it wasn’tContinue reading “Customized”

In the process

I think I can speak for the majority, when I say that waiting is probably one of the most difficult things for people to do. I don’t know what it is about time, that makes people want to throw in the towel and quit. Although time plays a role in one’s impatience, I believe whereContinue reading “In the process”

Hurting to heal

I love God! I know, shocker. Obviously, I was being facetious, but my relationship with God hasn’t always been “that great.” One of the biggest influences of that, has been the things I’ve gone through. Most of which were pretty bad, but somehow I was able to make it through, even though I didn’t wantContinue reading “Hurting to heal”

Now, tomorrow, or next week

Where are all my procrastinators at? I wish you all could see how fast and high I raised my hand. For a woman that’s always emphasizing the importance of time, I sure know how to mismanage mine. I’m sure I’m not alone, but I have a terrible habitat of setting things to the side, whileContinue reading “Now, tomorrow, or next week”

Bad Address

“You have the power over your situation”, is a commonly used phrase, yet it’s also the absolute truth. For many years, I’ve allowed certain individuals to set the tone for my life, and ideally thought it was where I was meant to be. No matter who or what it involved, I chose to take upContinue reading “Bad Address”

The Refinery

A few weeks ago, I was binge watching sermons and wig reviews on YouTube, when a suggested video was waiting in the queue for me to view next. “How to make an engagement ring” was its title, yet I was trying to figure out what did that have to do with wigs and the wordContinue reading “The Refinery”

Overflow

I don’t like to see people struggle. When I do, I try my best to do something about it. Largely in part, because I was once in their shoes. Everyone either knows or has read about my poverty story, so it’s only natural that I have a soft spot for the less fortunate. Even ifContinue reading “Overflow”

Distancing from the crowd

There’s an age-old expression, “birds of a feather flock together”, and when I was younger, I tried my best to fit in. Mainly, because I wanted to be accepted. Now that I’m older, I’ve chosen to distance myself from the crowd. When I moved from flock to flock, I noticed one thing; I was readyContinue reading “Distancing from the crowd”

Living with lions

Sometimes I feel like Daniel in the lion’s den. Wrongfully convicted and thrown away, waiting to be devoured. I’ve often questioned, what have I done wrong, or where did things go wrong, because in my eyes, I thought I was doing everything right! Yet and still, I continue to wonder, while trying everything possible toContinue reading “Living with lions”
