Now What?

Most people will come to have this feeling at least a few times in their lifetime. People will tell you that "alone" doesn't always mean that you are lonely but then there are times when alone means just that lonely, or it means lost. This isn't a negative post, or a post to make you [...]

Practical Love

Most people would argue that they want unconditional love, but we have not been taught to love unconditionally, and even worst we have been conditioned to love with many conditions. It is not as simple as saying that you will love someone forever, unconditionally regardless of what may happen. Everyone knows the marriage and divorce [...]

To Forgive or Not to Forgive

To forgive and forget is the main thing that I have struggled with. It is not that I did not understand what forgiveness was, my mother raised me quoting Colossians and Matthew every day about forgiveness.

Who Are You?

Above all else, "know thyself". The saying of the old philosopher, "Know thyself," proves his wisdom. True wisdom comes only by first understanding ourselves so as to know our relation to other things. There is no greater knowledge than knowledge of self. The greatest amount of time that can be spent especially in your younger [...]

Live Your Life Today

I never knew what it meant to "live your life today," until after I had reached a point where it was impossible for me to see beyond one day. It forced me to just live each day one at a time. I still planned for tomorrow, still planned for the future but there was a [...]
