Finding Worth in the Middle of the Earth: 05.22.2018

The only unhappy person following a dream is the one following someone else’s…

Time has been coming up a lot in my life lately, the feeling that time is running out or rather being used in the wrong way. I ask myself what can I do to improve this pattern? What can I do to stop the procrastination that comes with depression? I tell myself to return to the things I love to do like reading, writing, research, travel, etc. By doing these things am I not dedicating time to what I need to do? No, the things that I am passionate about should be key in my life because those things will breed successful results and an opportunity to turn my passions into purpose. That’s something that we all need to do, have confidence in creating our empire and doing so by dedicating time to our passions whatever they may be. The only unhappy person following a dream is the one following someone else’s.

Peace and Love,

Time

When the clock begins to tick and tock

Things around the world turn to rock

Oh, stop time for you’re going too fast

I want to make this life last

I wish to take journeys not yet seen

Oh, time your insolence is so mean

Time is leaving me now

As it waves its hands, I begin to smile

Then I drown my hopes and fears in the endless sea of time

Is my time up?

Touching Individual Moments Every-day

Time has made me whole

Even though I hear pestilential cries

I hold my head up high

For in the nick of time again

I’ve been saved from this endless troublesome time of sin

Time, you change your ways so much

You work against me and then for me

Time, what I am afraid of and what I fear

Is when the time is no longer here

Peace and Love,

Finding Worth in the Middle of the Earth: 05.06.2018

This week has been a mix of sadness, happiness, frustration, clarity, anger, disappointment, and hope. I’ve been praying and praying for God to provide me answers to some hard-hitting questions about my career choices and goals. Has he given me the answer albeit in a way that I really don’t like? I’ve been kinda preparing for a change anyway but who would’ve thought it would come this way because someone couldn’t keep up their end of the deal and I’m not talking about a specific someone if you get my drift. It’s disheartening having to start over when you didn’t want to or at least not right now. However, there is something that my friends and I always say to each other and it proves to be true even now, “Stay ready, so you don’t have to get ready”. Those words ring true especially in this day and time when nothing is certain or permanent. If people don’t like where they live or work they can move or quit and it’s not as big of a deal as it was in the 50s and 60s.

We are in a different day and time where relationships, friendships, careers are all up in the air. Companies are constantly “restructuring” leaving their employees unemployed or underemployed. Significant others are looking for their “soul mates” even if that involves doing it while they are still together. Things have changed and for better or worse change is good. With this huge change that has entered my life, I find myself searching for understanding but also putting in the work needed to ensure that I am constantly advancing. I have been mulling over this new potential career track for a while now even in college. Although I know ultimately I want to be a full-time or at least part-time blogger, I have career aspirations that require me to get an MBA along with some additional marketing experience. This next opportunity is strengthening another passion of mine, the desire to help, encourage, and to educate.

I’m preparing for the journey, I have no other choice but to. God, I just ask that you prepare me mentally, emotionally, and physically. I think I am ready to start again but there is this worry that exists when it comes to waiting for answers and calls. “I’ll be ok” is what I tell myself, I have a plan. There is just the fear of uncertainty but I am ready for the challenge. Plus I have the opportunity to do something amazing and great for myself and for others and I have to be happy for the opportunity from God to do that.

Peace and Love,

Falling For You

Falling for you was easy but falling wasn’t the plan.

A Plan to fly and float failed.

A realization that I couldn’t fly or float if I wasn’t willing to fall.

You have shown me love that works for me.

Even in the hard times, I recognize the importance of a late night phone call.

What’s better than being able to fly and fall at the same time?

You being in my arms and I in yours recalling how life was before we had it all.

Falling for you feels like fountains flooding with love.

Love flowing through and in between mountain peaks.

Lead me to your fountain so that my love can flood you.

Falling for you, falling fast, falling forever.

Happy Valentine’s Day!! Spend time with the one(s) you adore. ❤️😉

Peace and Love

Finding Worth in the Middle of the Earth -6.18.17

Starting over yet again, looking out the window of my life watching so many people walk past my little stone wall. Is this really what all these years of school was for? To just sit by a window wandering about my career path, my “life” . Ohhh I’m so tired of this unnecessary push for perfection that I plague myself with everyday. Can I blame anyone but myself for this? Is there anyone else to blame for this really? Yes, I could look at society I mean it helps to shape us all or at least shape what we think the idea of “all” is. But maybe it’s time…
