    I have preached "The Word of God.

    is the Word of God, is the Word of God. The Word works because its the Word of God." I understand anyone can write a book with good moral guidance. That book can also say "Every word is true" and "inspired". However just because I write a book and say it is true does not mean...

    I have been working on myself,

    basically my whole life. I'm trying to be comfortable with who I am, me, myself. I just ... I really don't understand how people can be confident. Every single time I look in a mirror I see something else that isn't perfect. I won't be beautiful until broken is beautiful.

    So it seems complacency is my middle name.

    I am complacent about becoming complacent. I had just as much to drink last week, I was just as bored at work and did the same menial tasks, I was just as indecisive and shy about venturing outside my comfort zone. I was lazy with getting up in the morning and cleaning and...

    I'M Self Conscious About My Weight

    I honestly hate being skinny. Not because Im worried that people don't find me attractive, but because I'm unhealthy. A few months ago my health took a dive and I got really sick. I have a lot of health issues that cause me to lose weight fast. My New Years resolution is to hit 9...

    And i'll be on one for the rest of my life.

    Just because we can't be perfect doesn't mean we can't reach for perfection. By perfection I mean the best you can be. I'm always going to strive to improve myself

    Over the last couple of years I've been a pot

    smoker on and off. At times I've abused it heavily and I'm at that point where I know it does me no good and if anything, delays me in many ways. It's difficult to stop when I live with my siblings whom smoke as well. I've been the only athletic one in my family and still am...

    Right now I'm working on finding my voice

    and reestablishing my values. I've found that many of the unsavory things that have happened in my life took place because I hadn't established healthy boundaries between myself and others. I allowed people to change my beliefs in what I felt was important to me because I...

    I thought I was falling in love with you,

    until you proved me wrong. It wasn't real. My emotional focus on you was just a reflection of my withdrawn focus on my own self-love. You weren't worth the time I've lost.

    I started on a similar journey many years ago. I was sidetracked, derailed, stuck in the mud for over 20 years. An amazing young woman came into my life, graced me with her beautiful spirit, then left me. The shock of that experience woke me up. I now read every day...
