Thank you for your forgiveness. How my heart yearns for you alone.
I dedicate today to being brand new. I will get down on my knees with my hands folded and head bowed and pray: Lord forgive my selfish ways.
I can’t be proud forever and I can’t put desires upfront. No this is the world I choose to live in: to seek his peace to reveal my own. Rid my evils and find my beginnings.
You’ve never left me, but God I stray at times. Your patience brings my deliverance and how divine my days.
I am a mess at best but I have a solid heart. No more madness to play in any part. What is good for me will lead the rest of my days. What is bad for me is a lesson I have learned.
I know the days to follow will be hard to conquer still. But with Your mercy and my faith I will move mountains and tame the seas.
Lord forever shine down your mercy upon me.
Knock, knock- Well, hello
I’ve got the entire world standing in front of me. Screaming insanity of injustices and whispering words of truth. I ask to their faces staring into my own- What are you in fear of? Why do you want to hide your truth? Will the world break down and crumble if everyone is happy? Where is peace in the times we live?
It seems to be coming back, or maybe that is just the generation in which I am growing. Everyone around me seems to sees the desire of hope and a real chance for change. Will we make the necessary actions to follow it through?
It takes a voice. Do you want yours to be heard?
Then the world says back- one voice can change nothing so my voice will not speak.
I laugh. In this moment I believe in full force the realm of social construction. You, world, are too consumed in the belief of what it is you think you know the outcome of.
Stand up. Stand out. Stand strong.
If you believe in something should you not go at it with your arms outstretched and your mind determined it will be yours?
What if we thought that /\ instead of thinking our voice did not matter?
We could conquer it all.
It is hard to believe in something when we cannot believe in our own selves. Believe in you. You are the most true truth you can ever know because no one knows you better than yourself. If you can’t trust anything around you- try first to actually trust yourself.
Life half full never worries about running dry.
The world may want to throw you all the signs to run and hide, but get up and get out. You would be so surprised what is waiting for you to come outside.
my best regards,

The world is beautiful because I see it as so. My life is wonderful because I live it out to be. I make my ideals real. My imagination is alive. Living in full force to create my world. My universe is me.
I’ve taken a moment to meditate on where I am. Where my life will go, and what I have done to even get this far have astonished me past amazement. So I began to wonder. Why couldn’t I see this all before? What held me back? Were my eyes always shut? Then I begin to realize something. Something that is key and I wish others would truly believe. I began to see how I think. That one sentence is so pack with boldness. It is erupting with answers that would leave you stunned.
It is ordinary to be consciously unaware. Everyone gets in a set rotation of what is “life”. They go through their days without a thought of how everything is working. It’s routine. But, what if you open doors. What if you decide you want to change your world? It’s extraordinary to do, but disciplined and focus is key. You are born pre-mapped. We all know this. Our DNA is a mixture of our parents, grandparents, and ancestors before their time. We are exposed to the ideals of others before we can even generate our own— this is what makes change so hard. Because we are unconsciously manufactured for the major aspects of living, we find that most of our behaviors are based on what we already know- our memories. So, given that sentence, if we behave off of what we know, we are what our memories posses. Our memories, our experiences, our way of life is all based on past happenings. Agreed? Because this is so, what if we change our memories, that’s easy? We change our memories by having new experiences, meeting new people, making new relationships. But what happens to our past? It’s still alive because we can still pull it back into reality, but our past is what made us want to change our future. So why do we still pull up the past? -Because we are consciously unaware of what we are doing. Our body acts off of routine because we’ve allowed it to. We don’t tell our lungs to expand and give us life, they are trained to do so and without effort from our conscious mind they function. What am I saying? Just as we make the unconscious decision to breathe, blink, pump blood- we unconsciously fall back into what is known. We are as fact- consciously unaware. But to posses true change, we must in fact change. So, how did I change? How does anyone?
Begin to see how you think. Be consciously aware.
If you take the time, look at your life. You’ve had hard days right? But you are alive now. You made it through those tough times. You have worried enough in your life. What did worry ever solve? We know that the fact that we decided to worry changed nothing on the outcome of what caused our worry. SO- take the lesson of the past, see its verdict- now change. You just proved to your own being that worry is only making you feel uncomfortable even more. One issue down, tons more to conquer.
You have to be at one with yourself. You have to love yourself. You have to want. You have to be ready to take on habits that your body does not recognize and make them known. If you want to be happy, you will be happy. If you want to be sad, you will be sad. You know that happiness feels good so take note of what makes you happy. Find your zest by first finding your own self by looking not in the mirror but inside. Listen to what you have to say and say it out loud. The first step to ever accomplish anything is to know what it is that you want to accomplish. You’re beautiful because you are you. You’ll see that in the end, when you are all grown up, that beauty is who you are.
The world is beautiful because I see it as so. My life is wonderful because I live it out to be. I make my ideals real. My imagination is alive. Living in full force to create my world. My universe is me and I will continue to always fight to conquer everything that it can possibly be.
