Have you found yourself yet?

Recently I met this girl. She was energetic, talkative, and loved being the center of attention - but she wasn't that bubbly, perky, type of girl who just gets on your nerves, you know? Well, anyway, somehow we ended up talking about what we were going to with our lives [or something along those lines] and the first thing I said was; I want to be a writer. Her reply was blunt and to the point; I hate writing with a passion.

Now, at first, I was offended. My mind was screaming "How the heck could you not like writing? Writing is a way of life! *rant, rant rant*" But then I stopped and thought about it.

We all want and desire different things [and we all have different goals of what we want to become]. These are our God-given desires. Whether they be a part of our life or something we strive to be, we all want something; a certain place on this round planet we call home.

For an example, let's use you, my [wonderful] reader. Maybe you want to be a writer too. Or an artist. A dancer, a singer, an actor. Maybe you want to put yourself out there, telling the world your name and hoping they'll echo it back in joyous acceptance. Maybe you like your quiet corner of the world, where everything is your own and there is no one around to bother you.

Or maybe you don't know what you want yet.



The will to win, the desire to succeed, 
the urge to reach your full potential...
these are the keys that will unlock 
the door to personal excellence.
-Confucius





You may not know what your soul purpose is yet - and I'm not telling you to rush out the door or rip through the books you own to look for it. But if you want to find it, you'll have to look within yourself, and have "the will to win, the desire to succeed", and eventually, you "will unlock the door to personal excellence".

Have you found yourself yet?

  1. So true, we all have our gifts and our dreams. I want to be many things...I'd like to do something like teaching for my main job, and then sew, act, and write on the side. Crazy? Maybe, but it's just an idea...:)
    Great design! I love the circle thingy. ;)

  2. Number 1, I LOVE the new design, it's GORGEOUS. The last one was awesome but I absolutely think this one is amazing!!!!
    and second, as of right now, I know what I *want* to do with my life, I want to be a missionary in Uganda. But a little over a year ago? I would have said I had. no. idea. I didn't and still don't see a problem with that, I say live life while your young and let that work itself out when you *actually* need to know that. My friends have their entire lives planned out, I say it's a waste. Ultimately, what I do with my life is GOD'S plan, so why waste time planning it myself, when God already has it worked out?
    Well there's my little rant/rambling. haha.

    Stay flawless,

How to Begin Your Self-Love Journey This Year

When I originally had the idea for this piece of writing I’m about to share with you, I was in a place of transition. I didn’t know my place in the world, I didn’t know if I was worth it and I certainly didn’t feel like I could love myself. Here I am almost a year later, an example of how this works - if you choose to put it into practice. You can improve and learn to love yourself. You can take the steps that bring you into a better place.

I won’t say it was easy and I certainly won’t say I had overnight success, but when you learn to fight your battles one at a time, you’ll be able to look back and see how far you’ve come.

Are you ready to take the first step?



Self Love: Step one I have always been a timid person. I’ve always had trouble keeping the standards I have for myself something below what I deem “perfect”. I enjoy discipline and when I don’t know what to do or my world is shaken, I’m hard on myself.

That’s just who I am.

With that said, I've always felt like I was not a…

A Love Letter

To my dear, blooming Rose - Attached to this letter is not only my love, but my gratitude, thankfulness and a small box of decadent dark chocolates. I would've had flowers delivered too, but no measly plant could ever compare or express my feelings toward you.

Ahh, my dear. You are my truest bundle of joy. It does not matter what mood you are in - you light up my day in the most wonderful of ways.

Your smile makes the sun jealous. Your embrace makes me feel full. Your laughter - so thick and loud - makes me want to laugh too.

What I love most is when you are truly and purely being yourself - because that's who you're meant to be.

With much love and kisses blown with a wink,
Your Secret Admirer

PS: Maybe we could share those chocolates later, eh?

When you need some uplifting, write yourself a love letter. Be silly and positive. Analyze yourself. Amp up your best qualities. De-sock your feet as you write and wiggle your toes as your write (then put your socks back on b…

Being productive can be hard, especially when you have too many things balanced on your plate. Most of the time, you don’t know where to start.
