We struggle. We make mistakes. We argue. But there is always support. We lift each other up. We apologize. We want the best for each other. We strive to make each other better; to make each other feel appreciated and respected. Our personal goals are aligned with what we want for our relationships. We are … Continue reading Quality Over Quantity
I haven't been writing a whole lot lately. I have replaced writing with reading, praying, and hoping things begin to fall into place for my precisely laid out plan for my future. I needed to take some time to fix myself. A good friend told me, "Your mind is like an ankle sprain. Sometimes you … Continue reading What The Future Holds
From the moment I met you I knew it would be an impossible journey. A journey I was determined to finish even if all the time wasn't worth it.
