The Inner Struggle

I struggle. I struggle a lot. I struggle everyday. It is an inner struggle. An inner battle. I know you struggle. I know you struggle a lot. I know you struggle everyday. The inner struggle. The inner battle. No one is exempt from the struggle. I have nothing to hide. I know who I am. […]

You Never Know…….

You never know the impact you may have on the life of a child. A rightly spoken word or a timely action, could literally, alter a child’s life. As we shift from adolescent to adult, as the years go by, most of us tend to lose the innocence, the beauty, and the purity of childhood. […]

Overcoming Anxiety and Fear

We experience so many feelings and emotions throughout the day. We have approximately 60,000-80,000 thoughts in a twenty-four hour period. The majority of us deal each day with some kind of anxiety, depression, and fear. There is a lot that happens within our brain, within our mind. Personally, I struggle daily with controlling my mind, […]

I Won’t Back Down

I won’t back down. I can’t back down. I won’t quit. I can’t quit. I won’t give in. I will continue to do what needs to get done. I will continue to do what I know I need to do, each day, every day. A lot of days suck, a lot of days are no […]

Wrong

It’s ok to admit that you are wrong. It’s ok to admit when you don’t know. It’s ok to admit when you mess up, make a mistake, or say something you shouldn’t have. We are all wrong at times. None of us knows absolutely everything. We all mess up, make mistakes, and say things we […]

Be True

Be true to yourself.  Be true to who you are, who you have become, who you want to be.  Be true to your goals, your dreams, and your passions.  In this social media age, it is far too easy to lose sight of yourself.  We see hundreds, if not thousands of images, videos, and posts […]

They Don’t Understand

It’s ok if they don’t understand.  It’s understandable.  Understandable that they don’t get it.  They don’t grasp it.  They can’t wrap their mind around it.  You are walking down a different path.  You are walking down the less-traveled path.  The difficult path.  You have been created and called to live a different life.  You have […]

Chop The Tree

The axe is clean.  The axe has been sharpened.  It is ready for use.  I take my axe, and set out to find the largest tree.  No one is around.  The sky is clear, pure blue.  The sun shines brightly, the heat is intense.  I stand shirtless, axe in hand, focused on the task before […]
