• I Don’t Want A Fresh Start

    With it being the holiday season, a lot of people are already proclaiming [predictably] that they are getting ready for their fresh start in 2019. Past mistakes are all being wiped away and they are walking to the starting gate, ready to jump into the next year with no connection to their previous setbacks or blunders—a clean slate. No insult or shade to anyone, but I do not want a Fresh Start. I don’t want a do-over. I want to be able to take the experiences and lessons from my past with me to motivate and provoke me to move forward.

  • Finding Your Unforgiving Purpose

    You are you, and your purpose is greater than just being a member of any flock. Your timing and route to finding your purpose should not be predetermined by those around you or by society’s rules. There is no perfect way for everyone. Your path and your timing may not make sense to everyone else, but just as they can’t breathe your breath for you, so too they shouldn’t define your life for you.

  • Guest Blogger Elle Miller: How to get over heartbreak – Elle’s Wise Guides on how to start again.

    I think there is one thing that has a monumental impact on a person’s life and how they look at falling in love, and that is dealing with heartbreak.  It can help shape and define how you see future relationships in either positive or negative way, and sometimes it can hold you back on letting go and embracing love again. Whether it be the loss of a loved one or a relationship breaking down, we tend to process them in very similar ways. There is a grief that holds us in the moment and we struggle to see how we can ever be the same. And I think in some…

  • Fairy Tales And Microwavable Lives

    I was not interested in most fairytales as I found them unrealistic, and depending on someone else to rescue me and save me – that just did not make sense to me. I mean think about it, what if the prince for Snow White had gotten lost, would she have had to stay with that piece of apple all up in her throat for years and years just because the dwarfs never learned the Heimlich maneuver? And what if Rapunzel had dry hair and split ends? Does that mean that her prince would have ripped her hair and never got to climb up to her window?

  • What is my Topic ? : Birth Week Challenge to Post Daily

    Day Five of My Blog every day of my Birth Week challenge [to myself…clearly, I need to work on my issues] and I am conflicted on what I should write. Yes, it would be easy for me to write random thoughts out of my head, but that is not really my style, even though it may appear that way at times. Hmmm…if I am honest there may have truly been times in which random thoughts did bounce around in my head and land on the keyboard without my knowledge. Who knows…it may be happening now. The thing is, there are two things that I want to write about and I…

  • Letting Go: My Birth Week Challenge to Post Daily

    May was a…. How do you describe a month where you experience surreal joy, pain and loss all within 31 days? How do you define a period where you saw great favor…where doors that never existed are now opening…with a month where my faith was pulled and tugged on, forcing me to hold strong to find some form of ground to stand on? [I should note that again, my faith proved itself to be my rock and standing ground, even when my knees shivered.] And now we are in June. Now Miss June [you must address this month with respect, so yes Miss], I’m not playing with you; May already…

  • Broken Wings & Mosaic Pieces

    The thing is…everyone is a work in progress. We are all made up of mosaic pieces, formed through the breaking and shattering of what we thought or believed to be whole. We have the tendency to over-examine and overanalyze each individual sliver, an exercise that culminates in the belief that we are nothing more than just worthless broken shards. But…guess what…that is not the end; we are merely unfinished. When our jagged fragments are rearranged with a new vision, and recombined with the faith that the Binding Agent is going to mold and cement them togethermaking them stronger than ever beforethis is when we come to the realization that we…

  • My Path:Unfiltered Changes and Choices along the way …..(part one)

    The idea for this blog entry started out as just ramblings about sometimes feeling out of place. It however took a whole other direction and went somewhere I did not expect it to. I have learnt not to force my words and to just let them flow out my head and sometimes even my heart without much filtering. As such this post has now changed from one entry …into a few [will post the others throughout the week]. As always I will hope that it is as honest as it can be, there may be moments of diversion; but if you are not new to this blog, you already know…
