Blessings List

Blessings List

Challenge: Make a list of everything you are thankful for and look over it on a daily basis. Read the list every time you wake up and right before you go to sleep. Some areas to think about include family, friends, health, integrity, children, residence, country, faith, occupation, etc. It is easy to forget how much we are blessed with. Are you thankful for what you have?

Pain: A Poem

Pain: A Poem

Pain A feeling of discomfort In the palm of my hand Drilling through my white t-shirt In the dripping wet sand A sharp pain in my side A quick intake of breath Struggling to maintain my stride No time for my death A cloak of numbness falls over me The pain refuses to subside Unable to see Unable to enjoy the ride Engulfed by flames of fire Swallowed up by the raging sea My only desire Is to be free

Overwhelmed

Overwhelmed

Hey it’s Grace! Probably forgot about me at this point, right? Well I’ve been MIA for quite some time now, and here’s the truth…Things haven’t been the best lately. And in all honesty, it just sucks. Contrary to your initial assumptions, life has been fine, great opportunities are arising, positive things are happening, and relationships are stable. The only thing I can define that’s wrong is that I’m just internally struggling. Which is crazy to me, to think everything can…

The Snowball Effect

The Snowball Effect

Imagine: Think of every day as winter. You walk outside and the ground is perfectly covered in a white blanket of snow. The birds are somehow still chirping. Your neighbor, Mrs. Jenson, calls over to you concerning her…ok, I’m getting too into this. Back to the point. (The snow is the most important part of this analogy so for those of you who are opposed to the cold, think of your favorite vacation spot…but with tons of snow everywhere) The…

Help Your Neighbor

Help Your Neighbor

Make it your job to be the first to offer help. What world is worth living in if no one is willing to look out for their neighbor? We’ve all experienced having less than 10% battery before…lend a hand to those in need.

How to Live

How to Live

Live in the present moment. Life is too short to take seriously. Drake said it best: “You only live once, that’s the motto, bro, YOLO.”…At least it was something like that.

Positive Self-Talk is Key

Positive Self-Talk is Key

Most people don’t understand the monumental influence that self-talk has on the human mind. We create our own mindsets. We have the power to influence our view of ourselves. Think of the brain as an objective pilot. Whether you give it a positive command, such as, “Achieve a smooth take-off”, or a negative command, such as, “Full-speed into the ground”, the brain will enforce what it is told. It utilizes no emotion in its actions. In order to take advantage of this fact,…
