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…

Breathe Every Once and Awhile

Breathe Every Once and Awhile

I am currently suffering from the deathly cold that we all get at least once a year; and I can honestly say I feel miserable. My head feels like a cross between a bowling ball and a ticking time bomb, along with aches throughout my entire body; a painful scratchy throat and a stuffy nose. Last night, amidst my sleepy eyes and raging pain throughout my body, I couldn’t seem to fall asleep. I started praying to God, asking why…

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…

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…

How to Love Unconditionally

How to Love Unconditionally

In the wise words of Eminem, “Guess who’s back, back again.” I sing this because after a week of time away from my laptop, I am finally back. Today’s story: learning how to love unconditionally with special guest star, “ridding judgment from your life”. This topic has been running around my mind recently; specifically since my last out-of-state trip. I just got back from a national sales competition in Atlanta where I was able to proudly represent my school in…

The Power of Prayer

The Power of Prayer

A quick word on prayer: one of the most powerful spiritual tools we have at our disposal. There is no right or wrong way to pray. There is also no location best suited for prayer or specific length of time desired. The secret of prayer is to find the process that will effectively open your mind to God. The most important thing is that you are sincere. When you pray, you are opening up your heart to Him and showing humility. The…

Endless Energy Through Conviction

Endless Energy Through Conviction

How do successful and happy people seem to have endless amounts of energy to get through the day? I always had this question while growing up. As a teenager, I struggled with maintaining the desire to go out and do things. After a few attempts at getting up and walking around, I usually ended up back in bed. Sleeping always seemed much easier than dealing with my problems. Recently, a lot of prayer and self reflection has changed my outlook…
