How Love is Conquering All in My Life!

I'm in love. And in love, everything looks so much brighter. All around me is vibrant and luscious. I can feel the air saturated with perfectly timed scents of lavender and chamomile. If you're following along closely and intently, I'm sure that you too can nearly taste the essence of sweet Serenity's bliss. It's terrifyingly contagious and I know you're with me... Ah! Love. For most of my life, I've battled depression. But today is a day in love. One in which I am sweetly soaring the clouds with my honey. It is true. Love really does win! This doesn't...

Conquering Anxiety With Love <3

Tonight has been filled with so many soft and sweet--yet difficult to ignore--lustful notions. I am now convinced that a #lovewins mentality can conquer anything. But that's such a hard pill to swallow. It's an overzealous supplement to most. And continually overwhelming to myself.I've never been a firm believer in faith. But everything around me begins to shine.  Sitting back, I begin to relax after lulling my gorgeous wife to sleep with a beautiful passage by our hometown hero, “Mitch Albom.”And although everyone is asleep. You can tell that "family lives here." You may think I'm crazy by telling you only...

WHAT MAKES YOU #SMILE?  PLEASE share this with someone/somewhere that makes you smile and tell them WHY! A great quote for me this time of year is... "empower to be empowered" When I think of that quote another really impactful motto comes to mind. A quote that really uplifts me to live a faithful and prosperous life is to remember why I wake up. When I wake up I need to start my day with this question: "who can I help smile today?" This photo below really encompasses a great vision of joy, togetherness, empowerment, and smiles while ending...

My Worst Sin

Denial is the evilest--and my worst--sin of all.  I would rather regret something I did than never have an opportunity to make a change at all.  There are so many things that I regret; I’m so freaking sorry for that.  I know that I may never see some of my friends again.  I know that a lot of my family may hate me forever.  There are people who will walk and turn the other way if seeing me in public.  But there is so much danger behind looking at someone or something and forcibly denying anything wrong had ever happened....

Death of a People Pleaser...

I miss a lot of things every day of my life. It's so very exhausting! Like missing socializing. But the ways that I socialized were killing me in the process. I thought that if I accommodated what others felt was "cool" to fit in, I was cool too. But boy was I was wrong. If I didn't get high, if I didn't bring drugs or do them, then I was the biggest outcast in what was supposed to be "my realm." And that isn't reality. Those situations were just defeating any part of myself that allowed people who truly cared about...
