    Realized My Own Truth

    Today I realized that God is not something that we strive to be or someone we meet, but it's simply the force that's pushing our cells to divide and die and recreate themselves... God is life... I realized today that we are all made of the same fabric, that we are all...

    Unhappy With Where You Are?

    Where we are in life is exactly where we want to be. Not necessarily because it's what we want but because it's good enough. When good enough isn't good enough anymore THAT'S when we start living :)
