Love conquers all

When you love someone, love them where they are, at this very moment in time. Love should be unconditional, affection with no limits or conditions. Loving people teaches a lot about oneself. The people who are attracted to us in different stages of our lives are mirrors of where we are/were at that point inContinue reading “Love conquers all”

Breaking trends

I left my job in the dental field almost six months ago. I was sick mentally and physically. I was so far beyond burnt out that I was unrecognizable to myself. Over 10 years ago, I left a church.

Throughout my life, the book of Jonah always comes up at pivotal times. Honestly, when I’m in a certain frame of mind (like where I am right now,) I prefer to avoid the ocean and the book of Jonah.

 Don’t get me wrong. It’s not as rough as it is in Muslim countries. I can declare my faith openly here without fear of being killed, tortured, losing property or being imprisoned. Being a Christian doesn’t mean that I’ll lose my job. Before you throw stones at me or crucify me, hear me out. InContinue reading “Being a Christian in the US today is rough.”

Do the hard things

Yesterday was the first true test of my new life. I was home, in my apartment, alone…alone with my own thoughts. That can be a scary place.  I couldn’t get out of bed, for starters. I was, and frankly am, completely exhausted. From travel. From emotions. From making big decisions. From not-so-promising news. From life. Continue reading “Do the hard things”

What the fluff?!?!

This morning, I may have freaked out a little bit. I am leaving my job 😳 Yea, I made a rational decision based on evidence that it is time for me to leave. Yes, I know that I know that it’s the right decision for me, and this is the time that it needs toContinue reading “What the fluff?!?!”
