Day 4

Word choice: Enjoy, Journey, and failure. Wherever there's failure there's success. Failure hurts but it's indeed a part of life, I've failed more than I would ever admit. I can't say I like failing but I'm human. BUT without failure what do you learn? Failure has taught to me how to be compassionate, empathetic and…

Attempting to Eat better

Recently I was informed by my doctor that I'm negative blood type and that I needed to eliminate certain foods out my diet. Now everyone who knows me know I am a pretty healthy eater. I've tried the vegan lifestyle, enjoyed it but it wasn't for me and vegetarian as well but I love fish…

Day 3

Word choice: Beyond, Circumstance, Joy I try to never let negative people and horrible circumstances steal my joy.

Stop impressing…

Lately. . . . After reflecting on my day and reading this quote, I realized that when I interact with certain individuals in particular settings I attempt to impress them.  Now I'm questioning why do I do that? Why don't I realize it at that given moment? Was I attention seeking ? Was this apart…

A day in the park.

  When spring comes around I love to work outside. As I type away on my laptop, I couldn’t help but to be distracted by my beautiful surroundings. I love to see other people enjoy the park just as much as I do, the families, the music, the flowers, the birds, I could keep going….…

“New Beginnings”

This week I developed a new motto, well more like a phrase that sums up my explanation for my actions. "New Beginnings" has been my answer for everything this week. Now before my "new beginnings" journey, I was so wrapped up in the wrong things and associated with the wrong people. For a long time,…
