How to Deal With Unexpected Change
While some people see it as a life adventure, I view change as if I was on the highest point of a roller coaster, about to plummet. Others get a thrilling feeling, I get the feeling of quick and sudden doom! There is a quote from Heraclitus that has always stood out to me. It says, “the only constant in life is change.”
Why Do You Think YOU Can Do It?
But this new adventure has brought up some thoughts and feelings that I had been pushing away for awhile that I needed to deal with. When I started to tell people about this event, I would get insecure and I would feel like the people I was sharing it with were judging me.
I felt like they were thinking:
“Why does she think she can put on a faith based event?”
“She isn’t even that holy… she is such a hypocrite.”
“Why is she trying so hard? She is just doing this for attention.”
What Making Oatmeal Taught Me About Time Management
Until one day, I discovered this delicious oatmeal recipe and started wanting to have it for breakfast every day. Just one problem, I would always run out of time in the morning to still throw it together!

Life’s About The Journey
We got off to a very great and quick start, but not too long after we started to become exhausted. We had to take many stops to catch our breath and refocus. All I could think about was getting to the top. I didn’t care how we would get there, I just wanted to be done!
Wide Open Spaces
Our world is so completely saturated with stuff. Seriously… look around the space you are sitting in. How much stuff do you have around you that you actually NEED?
What Driving In A Snow Storm Can Teach You
“UGH!! This is so frustrating. Don’t all of these cars passing me realize how bad the conditions are? Maybe they’ll get in an accident…then they’ll learn…” I am embarrassed to admit the things I was saying in my head. But needless to say, I was not thinking kind thoughts about these cars passing me.
Expect The Unexpected
You know you hear those horror stories about weird things happening to people over Zoom calls? Well that happened to me!
Where Did Breakfast & Bibles Come From?
We are all called to work, and sometimes through the mundane tasks and everyday hardships, we forget to turn to our Lord and thank him and ask for his help.
This saying has been around since I can remember, and it is often related to doing things spontaneously or recklessly, because heck… you only live once! I was recently listening to a podcast called “You Only Live Once… So Commit” from The Happiness Lab, and it really got me thinking. We are extremely afraid of commitment. Why, though?
