Until the end

Do you remember when you were little, and you and your friend “pinky swore” or “promised” to be friends until the end? Then, somewhere along the way, either trust was lost or you simply grew a part, causing the “promise” to become broken. I’ve had so many friends in my life (or I should sayContinue reading “Until the end”

Giant Faith

I’m pretty sure everyone is familiar with the story of David and Goliath. I’ve heard and read it countless of times, and every time I heard it, it gave me two things I needed most, courage and faith. Some of my biggest life experiences have been on the leveling field of David affronting Goliath, butContinue reading “Giant Faith”

High note

Cocaine, marijuana, sex, and alcohol is a lot of people’s drug of choice To help me cope, I don’t indulge in opioids, but I do prefer to “use” my voice Some people light up a joint, but I “light the joint” up with my positivity and inspiring post Me not getting stoned means nothing muchContinue reading “High note”

Where I’m from, but not who I am

I don’t know where I get my strength from. If I had to attribute it to someone or anything, for that matter, it’d have to be God and my unfortunate life circumstances. I didn’t come from a family of strong men, women, or leaders. I didn’t have sit-downs or talks on how to be aContinue reading “Where I’m from, but not who I am”

Mayday

In the 1920s, the term Mayday originated and was first used by Frederick Stanley Mackford, a radio officer for London’s Croydon Airport. Its origin is French for M’aidez, which translates to help. In a state of emergency, Mayday was shouted three times, to signal signs of distress, much like other popular phrases such as “SOS”,Continue reading “Mayday”

Total waste

There’s a reason for everything, although we often question what that reason is. Day in and day out, we selflessly pour into the lives of others, and do what we feel we are called to do, yet it all seems to be in vain. We walk the fine line between trust and doubt, but latelyContinue reading “Total waste”

Seasons change

The leaves have fallen and the trees have become bare, frail, and empty, just as you are. The vibrancy that once was, is now no more, but it’s not the trees I’m speaking of. Life’s strong winds are so powerful, that no matter which way you turn, it’s always against you. After being tossed about,Continue reading “Seasons change”

Get up, even when you don’t want to Go workout, even when you don’t want to Do something nice for yourself, even when you don’t want to Relax and take some time for yourself, even when you don’t want to Keep dreaming, even when you don’t want to Continue to believe, even when you don’tContinue reading “When you don’t want to”
