Two Year Anniversary

I know most of you reading this is curious to know what this blog post is all about, and what I'm crying about now. Well, today marks two years since I lost my dad. Yep... it's one of those posts. The sad and sympathetic one. The one people probably tired of reading. I'll admit, I'm [...]

I am here, at this point.

I believe I've spent the majority of my life trying to please other people.  I think it's my biggest weakness.  In efforts to make others concerns known and more important, I've realized how I have devalued myself.  There is an underlying lack of self-worth in my life.  I can often feel the discomfort in the [...]

My Creed
