Today is one of those days where I feel like I could take on the whole world. I feel like I could do absolutely anything if I wanted to… maybe even fly. It feels so good to be me and so good to be alive! Days like these are the days that keep me going. Praise the Lord who loves us so! “For I am fearfully and wonderfully made.”

I really want to be outside by the edge of a calm body of water right now. Sitting on a blanket in the grass, reading a good book. More than anything in the world. But, since I’m not doing that, I will have to take this very moment in this very place I’m in… and make it something unique and all my own. It always is that way. This is something I should remember more often. Life...

“Writing will show you that you are in the perfect place right now.” —Natalie Goldberg This is true in my experience.

I find hidden clarity about things in my life, and I begin to discover that I really am where I...

Blogging is not coming quite as easily these days, due to the fact that college sort of takes over my life. Although, there’s no “sort of” about it. My life is so crazy and full of things. A million things plus one or two here and there. Sometimes it all starts to feel like too much. But, I must admit, it feels nice to be able to come on here every now and again when I can and...

A friend and I were on Magazine Street in New Orleans the other day having a nice lunch, when we spotted a quaint yellow building on the corner of the street. We hadn’t noticed it before, but there was a sign hanging from the building which read ”Espresso Bar.” Both of us being lovers of coffee, we decided to stop in and check it out when we were done eating our lunch. We planned...

cbusforever asked: I'm really enjoying your 8tracks mix of 90's alternative hits. If you had to choose a particular decade of music that was not only the best, but that you would be comfortable listening to exclusively for the rest of your life? I know I'd pick the 90s, would you?!
I’ve been getting some really lovely notes in my inbox from some of you readers. I just wanted to take some time out to say that, even if I’m not responding to each of you individually, I sincerely appreciate all of your compliments and affirmations more than I can say. It really never crosses my mind too much that anyone takes time out of their day to come here and read my stuff or...

6. Write a letter to the person you’re closest to. Dearest friend, My intention for this letter was to tell you something about how much you mean to me and how grateful I am for your friendship, but it’s quite a difficult task to undertake. You’ve always meant more to me than words can possibly express. I can only hope I’ve shown you how important you are to me through my...
