You know—I’ve been working 24 years of my life so far. And you know what I’ve noticed? I’ve noticed that people for the most part are great people. They love  their families,  their community, and their country, but sometimes, just sometimes, they can become a—pain. They’re aggravated, and I don’t think they know why. I can relate, because at some point in my life I was walking around aggravated—totally pissed-off at my circumstances. Until I found out that it wasn’t the circumstances, it was  me!. I was just plain bored! And my aggravation was just my subconscious trying to get it through my “thick”—skull. It was trying to give me a swift kick in the backside so I would wake up!

I decided to update the “Home” or “About Me” section of my blog today! I am going to leave my previous post as well, because while I am updating this section, that information is still very valid to my life and who I am.

I am still a mother, a student, young woman who is trying to find her way & be the best possible version of myself I can be. Since I created this blog, a little over a year ago, I have faced many obstacles. I choose to keep these struggles to myself. I do not share them with family or friends, but I have found extreme comfort in sharing with the Lord.

I am not where I want to be in my faith but I am still learning!

My writing has declined as I find it harder to put my thoughts into sensible sentences.

Updating this section is just a reminder that their is continued growth in my life. Although I may not be were I envisioned myself last year, 2 years prior or even 5 years prior, I am still on the path to inner satisfaction and ultimate greatness!
