Death

Death is something we all have in common in many different ways.

Have you ever lost a loved one? I know I have and it was very challenging on many different levels.  Death is part of the cycle of life and one day we will have to go through it ourselves, we don’t know when or how but all we know is that it will happen.  I understand that it’s not something easy to get through especially if someone very close to you has passed on but we need to remember one thing, the importance of life. 

I know Christmas is just around the corner and it’s at times like this that make it very difficult for a lot of people, but it’s also a time where we should remember all the good times we had with that special person, all the laughs, disagreements, secrets, plans and so much more. Sometimes the death of a loved one can be a lesson for us, to learn to appreciate life and what we have, whether good or bad. Death can come at any time and because of this it’s important to stay positive and even though it may be a difficult time it’s also a time of reflection, to appreciate what’s truly important.

Becoming Your Own Best friend

Have you ever felt sad? Lonely?  Numb? 

Over the years I have had to learn to become my own best friend. There were many nights I would spend crying myself to sleep, sad and lonely with every given heartache. Over time I realized that I had to become my own best friend, I had to learn to comfort myself to over come the pain. It’s a process and I am still learning how to do it, but I have gotten so much better. I can honestly say that I am my own best friend. We need to love ourselves the same way you would love your own best friend, we deserve as much love and care as we give. Self love is very important, without it we can’t grow as people and we will never be able to let go of all the negativity that ways us down. There is nothing wrong with comforting ourselves which will actually bring out the best in you.

A Farmers Donkey- A Fable with Moral

One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out a way to get him out.

Finally the farmer decided it was probably impossible and the animal was old and the well was dry anyway, so it just wasn’t worth it to try and retrieve the donkey.

So the farmer asked his neighbors to come over and help him cover up the well. They all grabbed shovels and began to shovel dirt into the well.


At first, when the donkey realized what was happening he cried horribly. Then, to everyone’s amazement, he quieted down and let out some happy brays.


A few shovel loads later, the farmer looked down the well to see what was happening and was astonished at what he saw. 
With every shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was shaking it off and taking a step up.

As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he continued to shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, to everyone’s amazement, the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and trotted off!

  1.  Moral: Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up.
  2.  Moral : Every adversity can be turned into a stepping stone. The way to get out of the deepest well is by never giving up but by shaking yourself off and taking a step up.
  3.  Moral : In life, what happens to you isn’t nearly as important as what you do about it or how you react to the happening.

You're Important

It doesn't matter who you are, what you look like or what you do, there will always be someone who doesn't like you. As hard as that is to accept, it’s ok!!! That’s sadly just life, as you might not like other people they might not like you. One shouldn't waste their time on trying to be accepted by those who dislike them but more so appreciate all the people that accept and love you! You are who you are and that is amazing in itself! 

You should never try and conform yourself to what other people want. It’s time to let go and focus on the important people in your life, those who love and care for you

Faith Blog #2 - It's ok to ask for help



It’s ok to ask for help. People feel that when one asks for help it’s a big deal, like if you ask for any support you are considered a failure but that’s not the case at all. It’s ok to ask for help, it’s a part of life and our needs as human beings, its normal for one to care for themselves and try to find comfort in others. So if given the opportunity and if you really feel you need to then ask! 

Your feelings are important and so is having a positive state of mind, so there should be no reason not to ask and get support. 

Allow yourself to be helped.

Faith - Blog 1


I can’t begin to tell you how strong my faith is and I understand that not everyone believes in a higher power but what I know that one way or another everyone believes in something. Today I had the worst day ever I found out that certain things were being said about me behind my back, which I already knew but this time around I was super hurt by what was said. I never let it bother me because I know that I am not the issue here. There should never be a reason why one should say things about other people that will truly hurt them. I couldn't help but ask “Why” why does this person want to hurt me so much, why so much hate? What satisfaction does she get and why me? As I sat at home crying and wondering I decided to go on my lap top to get a few things done and the first thing I see when I turn on my lap top was this…..

You don’t have to swallow your tears. You don’t have to hide how you feel or ignore your pain. You have to give yourself a hug, look yourself in the eyes, and say, “I’m sad and I’m angry and I’m hurting. And you know what? That’s okay. My feelings are valid. I’m not broken or crazy. I’m wounded. But I can heal. And I’m going to be okay. Maybe not today or tomorrow or a week from now, but sometime soon, this is going to pass. And until it does, I’m going to keep taking care of myself. I’m going to talk back to the negative voice making me feel small and speak to myself with kindness. I’m going to let myself feel my feelings and do self-care. And I’m going to treat myself like a friend. Because if there’s anyone who deserves my love and affection, it’s me.


I know that, that message was sent to me by the universe (a higher power) my heart tells me so! We must never lose faith in what we believe in and we must never give up. We need to keep in mind that no one should ever be given the power to make us feel something other than amazing. We control how others make us feel, we control our thoughts and feelings. You just need to have faith to know that everything will be ok.
