They say that some people tend to be stuck on their pasts while others are too future focused. Only few operate in the present. For me, I am definitely a dreamer. I have many desires and I often sit back envisioning them finally being my reality. Goals, dreams, hopes, and desires are what fuel our … Continue reading My Future is a Distraction!
About a year ago, I wrote a post called Single (& Bitter About It). That post outlined some of my struggles over time as a single with longings to love and be loved romantically.

Who hurt you? Who hurt someone you care about? Who brought a pain into your life that you haven't been able to let go of? We've all been hurt by someone. Many of us have been hurt numerous times by various people and some of us have been hurt repeatedly by the same person. While … Continue reading You Need to Forgive Them
At the beginning of this month, I challenged myself and others to a 31 Day Prayer Challenge. The significance of this particular challenge is that we're praying for a specific person (or place) everyday.

I remember the first time I experienced true peace and contentment. I had a joy I couldn't really explain, to the point where I would cry happy tears. I had never felt such a pure sense of happiness. The most interesting part of it all was that I never knew I wasn't truly happy until … Continue reading Peace, Happiness & Contentment: What does it really mean to be content?
