Clear the way

I have a 7-year-old niece who thoroughly enjoys hitting flips. Whether she’s flipping across the floor, on me, or from sofa to sofa, she is quite the acrobat. Whenever I’d yell for her to “stop flipping or you’ll hurt yourself,” she always replies, “I’m a gymnasts. It’s what I’m supposed to do.” Granted she doesContinue reading “Clear the way”

Peddling nowhere

Have you ever seen someone struggling to ride a bike up a hill, only for them to continuously roll back down? No matter how many times they tried, it seemed as if they were peddling nowhere? Had you stuck around long enough, what do you supposed happened next? They finally made it to the top,Continue reading “Peddling nowhere”

Breathe

I am a huge movie fan, particularly action-packed and suspense, and whenever I get the chance, I watch Netflix to catch up on the latest releases. A little over a month ago, I watched Ice Road, an action-packed, suspenseful movie, directed by Johnathan Hensling, starring Liam Neesom and Laurence Fishburne, two of the more notableContinue reading “Breathe”

An opening

Yesterday, I called the dealership where I purchased my truck, concerning a part I desperately need. I was advised three weeks ago, that the part would be here, yet I’m still without it. I reached out to the service department to ascertain that what I need, had finally arrived. Jennifer answered my call, and advisedContinue reading “An opening”

The Aftermath

I don’t like inclement weather or heavy, disastrous bouts of rain, and right now we are in the middle of one of the worst seasons we’ll ever go through, hurricane season. I live in Alabama, and although we got a lot of rain, we were fortunate to have hurricane Ida bypass us, but for thoseContinue reading “The Aftermath”

I can relate

Homeless and staying in a hotel? I have been there No food, water, lights, or gas? I have been there Experiencing never-ending trials and tribulations? I have been there Felt unappreciated, inadequate, and unloved? I have been there Felt rejected, ostracized, and constantly put down? I have been there Felt hopeless and at your wick’sContinue reading “I can relate”

Before their eyes

Why is it, that when people are down, that’s the time they are kicked the most? The situation itself is painful enough, so adding salt to the wounds is certainly not needed. A lot of times, mockery can be the reason you can’t get up. Every time you try to better yourself and make progress,Continue reading “Before their eyes”

Painful Profit

Last night, I cried a river longer than the Jordan and Nile combined. Being burdened is a lot to deal with, especially when it seems as though you’re carrying the load by yourself. Although God puts no more on us than we can bare, I can barely stand the little He does place on me.Continue reading “Painful Profit”

Going the distance

I took some (more) time off and flew to Jamaica, to enjoy the fruits of my labor, reset my mind, and give rest to my body, not to mention to celebrate my sister’s 40th birthday. That experience, was my most peaceful and serene one yet. Honestly, I didn’t want to leave, and even contemplated purposelyContinue reading “Going the distance”

Until it’s over

It doesn’t matter if you’re a good person, or bad, no one is omitted from difficulty or trials. Some of us will experience tougher situations than others, but nonetheless, we all will go through hardships. The question is, how will you use what you go through, to better you, and help someone else? Will youContinue reading “Until it’s over”
