Diary of a Tired Human

Diary of a Tired Human

There is a quiet knock at the door. My vision struggles to focus as my eyes slowly open. A quick look around tells me that the sun has yet to rise. I turn my head to see the bright green numbers 5:32 flash upon my alarm clock. Oh, it’s morning. The door to my room opens and my dad’s head peeks inside. “Time to get up. Let’s roll.” I barely have time to groan before my jumbled thoughts become coherent….

God works in mysterious ways. You never know what to expect. I can definitely relate due to an encounter that I had last Thursday. This summer, I am interning at an advertising agency that is well connected to the city of Indianapolis. Because of this, I was graciously given the opportunity to attend a special fundraising event for Outside the Box; a non-profit that specializes in helping disabled Hoosiers. After hearing more about their mission and humble beginnings, I was…

I Made a Mistake

I Made a Mistake

Recently my brother Josh and I had an eye-opening conversation regarding respect for our parents. Now don’t misconstrue, I am a very well behaved and respectful child, and love my parents immensely. But I made a mistake recently and struggled to come to terms with why what I did was so wrong. And so, Josh asked me the other day if I had any rules for people when they get in my car. Which I replied yes, everyone who gets…

Friday’s Update

Friday’s Update

New Music Friday: Let me begin by asking for prayers for my cousin Kyle. A few days ago, he was rushed to the hospital for immediate surgery after his legs were crushed from an ATV crash. Thankfully, the surgery went well and his legs look to be on the recovery track although it looks like some serious days of physical therapy are ahead. Kyle is an incredible baseball player with the intent on continuing the sport in college. I’m sure…

2 Years

Looking back: Today marks 2 years since my sister Gabby passed away. As the years go by, the memories that we shared together burn deeper into my memory. Two years ago, I lost my best friend. It’s amazing how quick life goes by. In the moment, we think of time as dull and sluggish, yet when we look back on our time here on earth, it feels like it all disappeared in the blink of an eye. It’s the time…

Achieving Peace

Achieving Peace

Ask for help when you need it: For too long, I tried to take on all of the challenges that life threw at me alone. This became a serious problem as my emotional, mental, and spiritual strength slowly deteriorated over time. After looking back on my actions, there are a few reasons why I was obsessed with keeping everything to myself. Hopefully you can relate to some of these reasons. First, I didn’t want to be a burden on anyone….

Back to the Basics

Back to the Basics

Fresh out the kitchen: Recently, I’ve been posting a lot less frequently than I would like to. This is largely due to me having less time on my hands. Juggling work, family, and friends is hard enough as it is, but life continues to get more complex. I’m determined to not let the craziness of life get the best of me. I’ve had a lot more time to think and reflect about everything. My depression is largely influenced by the…

Lets Get Real

Lets Get Real

Attention: no previous planning or intense read-through has occurred for the following post. Lets just talk, get real and raw. I tend to plan my posts in advanced, or read-through them a million times before I finally decide to publish – which is not wrong, and perfectly fine – but lets switch things up a bit. I’m going to sit here, type up my thoughts, and send them off into the public eye immediately; because I view you readers as…
