Slowly Becoming

who you are. is not what you are doing. what you are doing is being someone else. --architecture |salt, nayyirah waheed| ***  For the longest time, I was asking myself, if I am being someone else, then who am I? And it triggered a journey that is peeling away fear and confusion. I’m like a camera lens coming into fo…

Be At Ease

In hindsight, I would have told you that you have a good sense of responsibility. Stop thinking that you don’t. The door on the other side comes with a blessing and responsibility that you are able to handle; you are more than capable. Remember all the things that you thought you’d never be able to do, yet you learn…

The Reason

The   Lord   is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.  |Psalm 18:2|    ** I am not always consistent.   People around me are not always consistent.   The world I live in is not always consistent.   And I need something …

Don't Give Up

Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand. The sun’s rays do not burn until brought to a focus.  | Alexander Graham Bell | *** This too shall pass. This storm won't stay forever. It'll cease. And the air will clear and the fright will dissipate. It'll pass. And every tear cried will not go un…
