    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 :)

    What Started It?

    When I was a kid I was told and heard there is a God, but I never knew who God was. I was raise with Jehovah Witnesses but I wasn't Baptize, I guess I was the only one that wasn't Baptize in my Family. My Mom wanted me to chose what should I believe, but why do we have to believe...

    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...
