Transparency is a strength, NOT a weakness. Have you ever gone through a rough time, and felt like you couldn’t tell anyone? Felt like no one would care? Or maybe thoughts like, “what would they think of me,” or “what if they think I’m not normal,” travel through your mind. So many people these days are living life with a mask on.

Yup, you read that correctly. But don’t be surprised. Unlike many people out there I’m not scared to lay it all out and actually be honest with you. Heck, someone has to be on this day and age! Most recently I had the opportunity and privilege to slap some sense into a couple of friends. After finding out that they had been on a couple … Continue reading Why I deleted my Hook-Up apps
Growing up, I’ve always loved watching romantic comedies. From my aunt taking me to see The Wedding Planner at the movie theater, to purchasing a dvd of Pretty in Pink when I was in high school and trying to convince myself that I was Andy; one conclusion of this is true, I am a sap when it comes to a good rom-com. But this post … Continue reading For the Times When You have to Wait
“Restricted, this horse was. How mean and offhand was the Master to take the innocent stallion from his freedom and put guard rails around him. He was enjoying his life, and then … Nothing.

“Let’s go back to Judea.” Jesus’ disciples objected to what He said. “Rabbi,” they said, “only a few days ago the people in Judea were trying to stone you. Are you going there again?” (John 11:7-8). After Jesus explained the situation and once again said, “Come, let’s go.” Thomas, AKA “Doubting Thomas” said, “Let’s go too, and die with Jesus.” (John 11:16). It’s funny how … Continue reading What’s your default?
Well, the truth is out. I’m officially losing it! Everything is different now. It is currently midnight a few days ago… and all of a sudden creativity starts tickling my brain. Or wait, is that Rona in my throat? WHO KNOWS! To set the mood, I have contemplated pulling a 2007 Britney about three times this week. I told myself not to cut my bangs … Continue reading I’m Losing My Freaking Mind
“I am so bored.” “I don’t know what to do with my time.” “What am I going to do with my life for two weeks?” “Jesus take the wheel and Corona!” (Well, I may be the only one who might probably say that. Please excuse my extraness) “I am going to eat all of my quarantine food by noon.” “I’ve never worked from home.” “Do … Continue reading It’s not Corona, It’s YOU!!
