Death, break ups, falling outs, war, etc. are all ways that we lose people. In nature, everything comes and goes, even people. Whether it was or wasn’t their choice to no longer be in our lives, we have to learn to let them go. My process for accepting their departure and moving on is to change my perspective of the situation… What was their purpose in my life? What lessons did they teach me about myself? What lessons did they teach me to help serve others? By packaging my time with them as a gift that I have received, I can focus on being grateful for that gift, which takes my focus off of losing someone. Whether the reason behind losing that person was bitter or not, I find a way, no matter how big or small, to appreciate the time they had given me. For those who do stay in our lives,…

The habit of coming home after a long day and watching television seems to be the household norm nowadays. We are too tired to do anything, so we sit and stare at a screen of blue light and live vicariously through scripted lives or soak in questioningly accurate knowledge about this world depending on our choice of entertainment. Little do we realize that we are further exhausting the part of us that is already tired from work. Our minds. Think about our total energies as different batteries. We have our mental battery, emotional battery and physical battery. In order to charge up a battery, we have to be using another battery since one can’t be charged while being used. Since we typically use our mental battery at work, we have to switch it off to charge it up. Coming home to watch television may help for about ten minutes, but…

Hilariously pathetic is when I’m lying down staring at the ceiling laughing and crying at the same time because I’m so fucking awesome but my life is a fucking joke. Hilariously pathetic is when I laugh at my conversation with God because he has a humbling sense of humor. Hilariously pathetic is when I know I have a big purpose but continuously fuck shit up. Hilariously pathetic is when I have such a good thing going for me so I purposely find a reason to ruin it. Hilariously pathetic is when I realize my “good idea” was really a very dumb one. Hilariously pathetic is when God tells me to do something and I fall on my face to learn the lesson. Hilariously pathetic is when I walk into a situation knowing that I shouldn’t as though I’m in an annoying scary movie. Hilariously pathetic is life. Hilariously pathetic is…

Focus on you. Keep your eyes on your path alone. Don’t let distractions sidetrack you. If they do, it’s ok… just come back to your path. It’s a meandering path, but that’s what makes it an adventure. There’s portions of it that are a steep uphill to climb, but there’s also the breezy downhills that make an effortless stroll. Either way, you’re moving forward. Don’t look at another’s path for their’s is unique to them and yours is sacred to you. Blessings, obstacles, experiences, people and lessons all show up differently because God and the Universe planned it that way. Don’t be jealous of anyone else’s journey for you are living through things they never have the opportunity to experience. You are touching the lives they may never get to touch. You are changing the world in ways they will never get to change it. Your light shines and your people…

When I was 14 years old I had my first panic attack. I was in the car having just left the store with my then step-mom. I remember my heart racing like I’d never experienced. I honestly thought I was having a heart attack. My whole body felt frozen within my own skin, desperate to crawl out. I reclined my seat and rolled down the window for fresh air. I don’t remember how long it lasted, only that I was completely overtaken by whatever it was. Over the next year I spoke with my doctor and he eventually diagnosed me with anxiety. At 16, when I started taking birth control, my hormones were all out of whack. At that time, my doctor and I decided to start me on a low dose of anxiety medication to offset what the birth control hormones were doing. Through the years I have been…
