Kindness Heals.

Upon starting my freshman year of high school, I was put into a “community.” In this group, the students took their core classes in the same area and naturally built relationships with the students they saw for the majority of the day. As we learned together, we grew together and challenged each other to see the world through the eyes of our peers. At the end of the first quarter, we were brought into a classroom for an awards ceremony. Our teachers expressed that they’d been watching us attentively and wanted to highlight a skill we’d brought to the community. Being that I was one of the shyest people in our group, I sat quietly wondering what recognition I could possibly deserve. I wasn’t

They say when it rains, it pours. But sometimes, life can hand out one massive flood. As young adults, we often spend our years steadily searching for what our purpose is on earth. However, after losing two family members and more falling ill within two years, the quest to discover my calling was more urgent than ever before. As I began to tingle with anxiety thinking about the things I hadn’t done and the time I might have left to do them, the phrase “live your best life" repeatedly came to mind. Chuckling through my tears, I wanted to dismiss the thought because I was expecting more symbolic, but in all actuality, life really is that simple. Through love and loss, here are three lessons th

Self-control ladies and gents...

“Feelings are indicators, not dictators. They can indicate where your heart is in the moment, but that doesn't mean they have the right to dictate your behavior and boss you around. You are more than the sum total of your feelings and perfectly capable of that little gift . . . called self-control.” ― Lysa TerKeurst, Unglued: Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions Live loved.
