I remember the days when I'd be at home all day long, sitting in front of the tv and doing barely anything. Once I started working, I remember coming home and feeling like I was missing out on something. It was as if all I was good for was work...
Life can often feel like a never ending train wreck. One situation ends and then another one comes along... at least that's how I feel things have played out for me over the last year and a half. And it often feels like one event opens the door for another one to happen. I become… Continue reading Thankful Thursday :: Birds of a feather…
In one of my previous posts, I shared about how I suck at cleaning up my own messes... ...but I have come to realize that I also suck at learning important lessons. Maybe you've had days where you continually ask yourself where you went wrong in a situation, all the while the answer being right… Continue reading Thankful Thursday :: Repeated Lessons
I looked at food in an unbalanced way for a long time; I either couldn't eat food that I really liked because it was unhealthy or I couldn't enjoy the food I needed to eat because it tasted gross. I wanted to be healthy, but I felt I had to stomach the most disgusting meals… Continue reading Thankful Thursday :: Food.

To me, costume characters were the whip cream and cherry on top to a day at an amusement park. I always wondered what it… Continue reading Thankful Thursday :: Performer’s Life

Yet often I realize that I tend to get stuck in a cycle of negativity and worry that I don't take the time to release my burdens to God, make necessary adjustments,… Continue reading Thankful Thursday :: Laughter

What's your idea of giving? Is it something that should be done with the expectation of receiving something in return, or is it something that should be done without expecting anything in return?
