24 months + 1 day

Friday, 10 April 2015 by

24 months and one day ago, I got on a plane.  I was heartbroken. I was crying (the ugly kind). And I was already homesick for the place I call home and people I call family (and the plane hadn’t even left the ground yet).   I couldn’t believe that I was being called away

Let Hope Rise

Monday, 12 January 2015 by

Last week, the City of Light was shrouded by darkness. The world watched in dismay as terror took lives and horror haunted the streets of Paris.   Paris is a place that feels like home to me.  It is a place I dearly love…filled with people I love even more. So there was a deep

On these cold winter days… All I want to do is sit by a fireplace with a hot drink. I find myself constantly seeking out the warmest place or thing. At every turn, I’m positioning myself in that sliver of sun that cuts through the clouds, just to feel that touch of warmth on my

It’s in Your Hands

We’ve made it one whole week into the New Year. So at 7 days in, how has it been? If you’ve made goals or resolutions for the year, how are they going? If you haven’t, do you plan to? Is there a plan of execution for those goals, aspirations, dreams, and resolutions?   This is

Rise Above

Friday, 05 December 2014 by

We gain nothing by diminishing others. In a world full of unhealthy competition and comparison, it is easy to get swept up in the “better than” game. It can be difficult to resist the allure of comparison. And it’s hard sometimes to avoid the urge to tear others down in an attempt to build ourselves

The other side

Go boldly to the other side of fear! Lay hold of your greatest dreams and ambitions! Don’t let fear hold you back from doing the things that are on your heart. Fear will try to tell you that you can’t…but fear is a liar! Go boldly, my friend!     Live #Wholehearted♥   Further Reading:

Creative Tip

Journaling has the power to change your creative output!   Some of my best ideas, best songs, best moments have been recorded in my journals. And often times those “bests” just begin as a word, short phrase, or sentence. Try it for just one month.  Journal every day, even if it is just one sentence
