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…

I Do Ordain

I Do Ordain

There is this poison in my brain Making me go insane This new strain Has taken reign Over my membrane Hoping to gain The fame Attached to my name Outside and alone in the pouring rain I look down to the stain And with much disdain I refrain From releasing my emotions How have I gotten here? Who am I? Lifeless and with shame I swerve to stay in my own lane Feeling the bane Of this pain I do…

Prepare for the Journey Ahead

Prepare for the Journey Ahead

Reflection: As I sit outside and feel the sun wash upon my face, I can’t help but smile. The birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming, and the sun is shining. Its days like these that make me feel as if there is nothing bad in this world. I wish this was true. Bad thoughts have a funny way of intruding upon the mind. They mostly come when we least expect it. This causes me to push myself to enjoy…

The Return

The Return

One Post to Rule Them All: I’ve been engulfed by a busy set of transitions these past couple of days and I haven’t had time to write much. The past week has been filled with a variety of changes; finishing my junior year, saying goodbye to friends who are graduating, and starting a new job. I have found myself bombarded with a ton of change all at once, and I, like most people, am hesitant to life changing. Needless to…

Change Up Your Routine

Change Up Your Routine

The Journey Ahead I’ve recently discovered a life-changing piece of advice: change up your routine. It has done wonders for my life and I know that it will impact yours as well. Changing routine is necessary and extremely important for people who struggle with depression and anxiety. This is because negative emotions will continue to pile up until they are too much to bear. The emotions then create a routine centered on them. The routine created is what turns our…

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?
