    Where I Least Expected It

    Through my teen years and my early 20's I was constantly on this search to "find myself." I truly didn't understand who I was, what I stood for, and where I wanted to go in life. I had let my life be dictated by others because I had such self-loathing and such low self...

    I Finally Have It Back!

    Song Stuck In My Head... Kinda Suits Me.

    Found myself today, oh I found myself and ran away. Something pulled me back, a voice of reason I forgot I had. All I know is you're not here to say what you always used to say, but it's written in the sky tonight.

    To never struggle would be to never grow.

    You must let go of who you were so you can become who you are. It is within the depths of the strongest and darkest storms that you discover within you an inextinguishable light, and it is this light that illuminates the right path forward.

    Between all this mess,

    I find the peace within you. How can your touch calm me or your smile heal me, how could all my life have seemed pointless, without you. How could I have been searching all my life, to find my heart. When my heart was in your soul, with you I finally found my home.
