    I met you for a reason; although the reason is

    still not clear.. there's a lot of "what if's" between us, but we still continue to live in reality.. I believe we are meant to be a different "US" something that we should explore beyond what others couldn't possibly imagine..

    Things fall apart to make the right things fall

    in place. At times I want to throw my hands up and give up, but god gives me the strength to stay strong. As bad as things are at this point, I finally got some great things happening :) I went out of my comfort zone and my future will thank me for that!

    There Are No Coincidences

    Today I had an appointment with a careers consultant. The date had been set quite a while ago and my concern had become increasingly important, so I was quite anticipant about how it would go. I was greeted by a sympathetic looking woman with a big round face and soft friendly...

    It All Happens For A Reason

    I believe things happen for a reason, what that reason is I don't know, but im sure there is some logic behind all the stuff that happens in this crazy world of ours, and our personal lives as well.We just have to go with the flow and keep cool.And that's my story

    Sometimes we have an experience

    that we don’t understand, but if we look deeply, or wait long enough, a reason for that experience will usually reveal itself. All the events in our lives lead to other events, and all that we have manifested in this present moment is the result of past events and experiences...

    The strangest thing happened today.

    .. I thought I should tackle a task on my to-do list. After doing an online search, I found a notebook that seemed like a suitable buy and checked where I could do a hands-on inspection in a city store. After noting the route and opening times, I set off on a pretty long trek...

    You asked, "When did you find yourself?

    " And I simply said, "When somebody loved me." Until now, I didn't realize how true that was. Thinking back, I wasn't afraid of loving him or being with him. No, I was afraid of losing him when I let myself go, when he took a good look and saw the real me. That I wasn't what...
