Don’t look back.

The reason some can’t move forward is because they refuse to let the past go. They still have the same mindset they had ten, twenty, thirty years ago. You have to let go of what was, in order to fully appreciate the present. If God delivered a person from a situation, why would they want…

January nights: Dance of the Northern Lights

Hi everyone! I’m back with another sleep story! I’m hoping to create a sleep story every month (fingers crossed). Anyway, lately I’ve fallen in love with the idea of experiencing the northern lights. From what I’ve read, it’s wonderful and celestial. I’ve created a sleep story of what I imagine it may be (at least…

A good deed a day.

Happy New Year  So, yesterday I was inside of a store shopping. Another customer asked if I could get an item for her. I am maybe a couple of inches taller than her. I actually had to get on my tip toes to get the item myself. Shubricca said, in my head… “You don’t work…

Part 2 Burger and fries, and steak and potatoes. Some people live for that happy ending, but I’ve learned to be content with a happy medium.

Part 1 Third graders are brutal “I haven’t always been this way- despised by society, broke (in more ways than one), inadequate, and discarded… like toilet paper after a good sh.” “Shhh, Ms. Angeles said, interrupting Aspen. “You can’t use that language Ms. Lewis,” Ms. Angeles said. “Oh, my bad. My bad kids,” Aspen said….

October Hayride: A sleep story

Do you love fall as much as I do? Honestly, it’s my favorite season hands down. I love the array of fall colors displayed in the leaves. I love the fact that it’s sweater weather. I love that it’s the season of Thanksgiving (which we should be doing all year), but during this time we…
