Write Your Own Script, My Dear

So really. Why would you follow in the exact footprints of someone else? They do not have YOUR unique qualities, gifts, abilities, and desires, and you don't have theirs. Should you fashion your life after what other people say? Should you let what is important to them be what guides you? Perhaps to some degree, if they are… Continue reading Write Your Own Script, My Dear

This is Your Brain. This is Your Brain in Love.

Loves you without boundaries or restraint, regardless of your brokenness, emotional issues, and the truckloads of psychological stuff you carry with you? It is addictive to say the least.   Your… Continue reading This is Your Brain. This is Your Brain in Love.

You should never feel as if you are insignificant and undeserving. Dream that dream. Set those goals before you. Because, why shouldn't you reach them? You, as much as anyone you admire, deserve the chance to do what your heart desires. Yep, sometimes it takes a long time. And it's really, really tough. But that… Continue reading Why NOT Me?
