    Leaves The Light On

    It is believing that we take lessons in every stone we find on the road and we learned from each thorn we find along the way. It is believing that even amid the tribulations, something in the universe „watches“ over us and „walks“ with us, and it doesn’t abandon us...

    Always...

    I don't expect anyone else, besides myself, to have faith in me. If I didn't have faith in myself, I'd be truly lost.

    I have to keep telling myself this.

    I can do this. I can graduate college with an offer letter. I can get at least 65 for my english. I am not going to disappoint my old man. I can meet all the requirements to go to uni. I just gotta keep telling myself, tell myself to hang on for just two more months. I cannot...

    I Am Reaching The End Of My Rope...and Fast!

    I am a strict believer in wanting something bad enough to show up to get it, and I have faith in myself to get the things that I want. Things have always turned out for me, as long as I harbor this mindset. I am a hard worker, and if I were to be in situations that were out of my...

    Faith is a word that is often used in tandem

    with God, or any religious figure that surpasses the abilities of mere mortals. This has always bothered me. Why have faith in something, or someone that you may never meet? Why place all this trust into something that may never return it? I have faith. Faith in myself. I...

    I Have Faith In Me

    Because I cannot expect anyone to have faith in me if I don't have faith in myself:) It all starts with us. Confidence and self-esteem is always, always important. We may fail, but that doesn't have to be the end of everything. We can always try to do it better. Or just TRY...
