Tears on a Treadmill

[I forgot to post this on January 5] I have never been more appreciative of an empty gym than I was today, as I had a breakdown right there on the treadmill. It was one of those moments when inside, my heart just broke, and there was no stopping the flood. This is so not … Continue reading

Let Me Guess

Let me guess: you are going to eat a salad today, drink a few glasses of water, and go for a little jog? Hey- me too!¬† ūüôā I don’t really do New Year resolutions. I more or less resolve in general to live my life to the fullest and best of my ability. Jesus said, … Continue reading

New Everything!

Behind that lot was a rare find: … Continue reading

Once known for being the land of the free and home of the brave, I dare say has become land of misconceptions and home of the divided. There is this grave misconception that … Continue reading

Double Life

Sometimes I feel like I lead a double life. I do not mean that I am a hypocrite and act like a different person than who I truly am; I do not mean that I live two separate lives. I mean that I feel like God put two hearts in my chest, and I can’t … Continue reading

To be Loved

To be loved- that is all anyone ever wants. That is what we live for. That is what we spend our lives trying to acquire.
