Persistence

This week has been emotionally tough. I haven’t been in the mood to write or even open up my documents to begin the process. I had nothing to write about and nothing to share. I was not in the right place at all. I talked to my mother earlier, and she told me about the…

Healing Your Past and Releasing Your Future

Healing is something that is near and dear to my heart. It is the space that I am in right now, it is my focus.  I have been through a lot and some of the things that I have been through inhibited me from moving forward in my life.  Living in the past has left…

Fleeting Thoughts and Struggling Commitments

Fleeting thoughts or I should say random good ideas that I make on the fly are kind of like a vice to me. It feels right for the moment, but it’s temporary. I can’t seem to stick to one idea and finish (which I talked about in scaling back). Some of my thoughts have to…

6 Life Changing lessons I have learned from the Armor of God

Bible study is very redundant and uninteresting. The Bible study leaders don’t go in depth. This Bible study, however, was different.

Being A Vessel For God

The Idea

Ideas are everywhere. The imagination is an endless source of inspiration. It is just hard giving birth to the idea. It is a constant struggle for clarity on what the idea is. We tend to make the simplest ideas complex and what we perceive as complex is actually simple. We have to free ourselves from…

Check In With Yourself

You need to check in with yourself. It is vital for your mental health and well-being. Day in and Day Out you have other people’s voices in your head that your voice is drowned out. Take time for yourself. Ask yourself: What is true? Are you letting my feelings make decisions for me? Are you…

Pursuing Serenity (Your Top Priority)

As someone who lives with mental illness, my biggest desires are peace and joy. It is hard trying to obtain it when you are in constant battle with your mind. I always say that I want to be living and not surviving but I never knew what living was. I always thought living was doing…

The Need To Perservere

This week has been emotionally tough. I haven’t been in the mood to write or even open up my documents to begin the process. I had nothing to write about and nothing to share. I was not in a good place at all. I talked to my mother earlier and she told me about the…
