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”

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”

Everyday

To all the mothers (whether by birth, adoption, or surrogacy), I want you to know that you are loved, constantly thought of, appreciated, and more than anything, you’re wanted and needed. While most of you are only celebrated once a year, I want you to know, Mother’s Day is not your day…everyday is! If itContinue reading “Everyday”

Day off

If you were looking for a post or your daily note of encouragement, here it is. Sometimes, you need to learn to take the day off, and take some time for yourself! It’s easy to get burned out, but even harder to recover. If you are tired, exhausted, and restless, that’s your body speaking, soContinue reading “Day off”

Living on the edge

Over the weekend, two of my sisters and a cousin, went to Las Vegas, NV. While there, they went to visit the Grand Canyon, a place that I’ve longed wanted to experience. It was absolutely breathtaking, and filled with amazing heights and views, based upon the photos and videos they shared. There were two photosContinue reading “Living on the edge”

Knot today

I stress the importance of taking care of one’s mental health, especially during times as these. If you weren’t depressed before, I’m sure you may have experienced it since the pandemic. I’ve suffered from depression for years, and although the hardships I’ve faced in recent months were hard on me, I was able to manage.Continue reading “Knot today”

Stay in the womb

I’m not a mother (yet), but I know that once conception is established, a typical pregnancy takes 40 weeks for an embryo to fully develop into a fetus. There are three phases that are absolutely necessary to the growth and development of the baby. First, second, and third trimesters, as they are called, are phasesContinue reading “Stay in the womb”
