She whispered, “I’m afraid.”


She whispered, “I’m afraid.”
And then everything changed when she realized
“SHE COULD”

In nearly every aspect of our lives, whether it’s in ourselves or in others; we will face moments when we will need this thing called confidence. So how do we gain it,  build it and own it? The bad news is; there’s no easy fix. The good news? It is achievable.

So what do we do?

 First, we must realize that we are human and make mistakes. Yes, we will make mistakes! Mistakes are meant to be made for our learning. Once, we learn how to handle failure, we will then see it for what it is and gain a better positive attitude. Don’t strive for perfection but rather build on the small, simple victories. Own your thoughts. Stay focused. Stay grounded. Don’t let others cause doubt. There’s no room for it! Stay committed.

So, if that voice within ever whispers, “I’m afraid.”

Know and realize that everything will change because “YOU CAN”

I want to THANK Giggles & Tales for inspiring me to write this.

If you liked reading this, please check out the inspiration from where it came.

the sweet mundane


No images. No gimmicks. No poetic words. Just me and you.

Because…

We all have those days…those ordinary, routine, repetitive, commonplace days where life just seems to stand still. The familiar gray monotony of a day much longer than the twenty-four hours, looms overhead and all we want to do is watch the clock. Our un-glamorous duties await us from the moment we wake and all we can think about is how to escape this recycled life to something more exciting.

No images. No gimmicks. No poetic words. Just me and you.

Because…

We all have a story to tell. A story that can only be told by us through those ordinary, routine, repetitive, commonplace days where life just seems to stand still. That familiar gray monotony of a day which seems much longer than a twenty-four-hour day that looms overhead, just may be the color in the life of another. The clock may seem to be ticking slow but yet, it’s still ticking. The un-glamorous may just be that…un-glamorous; but ask yourself this: Who is telling the story?

No images. No gimmicks. No poetic words. Just me and you.

Because…

I have a philosophy. I believe life is a series of stories. At times, the stories can be awesome. You know… those mountaintop moments when all is good and the view is amazing. Then there’s the “rock bottom” stories we can all relate to. Those moments when the only way to go is up. And in-between the ups and downs are all the ordinary, routine, repetitive, commonplace days where life just seems to stand still. The familiar gray monotony of a day much longer than the twenty-four-hours, just looms overhead and all we want to do is watch the clock. Yes, where the un-glamorous duties still await us from the moment we wake and all we can think about is how to escape this recycled life to something more exciting.

No images. No gimmicks. No poetic words. Just me and you.

Because…

I believe the joy of life is about the ordinary. The familiar gray is why I appreciate the mountaintop moments. Although life may have its “un-glamorous” tasks…I complete it. I use it. I learn from it. The tick of the clock is just a noise, if life is standing still. But if we all have a story to tell, who has time to watch the clock. An exciting story, if told badly, can be dull to any reader. And, a dull story, if told with excitement, can be epic to a listening ear.

No images. No gimmicks. No poetic words. Just me and you.

Because…

The truth is…when the familiar gray monotony of the day becomes larger than life, then we have forgotten the purpose of life and who the real Storyteller is. We have forgotten that every story matters. From life’s biggest moments to the ordinary gray…make the most of the beauty of the sweet mundane.

that moment…



that moment when you just wish you could freeze time…
that moment you realized everything was just the way it should be..
that moment you live life and forget your age…
that moment you can peacefully appreciate the world around you…
that moment when your inner voice says, “Listen”…
that moment…
that single solitary moment…
