Embracing Change

Finding happiness in the strangest places has been a thing that is relatively new to me. Is it strange or is it just different, out of the norm? Doing things outside of my comfort zone has been the theme for me lately. I was never the type to go out of my way to feel […]

Life Starts When You Step Outside Your Comfort Zone

A comfort zone can be defined as a space where “activities and behaviors fit a routine and pattern that minimizes stress and risk,” and that’s why you need to leave it.

Dear Mama

Dear Mama, I pray this letter never reaches you. I am sorry. I am sorry you have to see this. Iam sorry I’ve left you alone. The moment I was grabbed from your arms into the clutches of ominous death I knew I would never return to you. Do you remember my hands you used […]
