As you wait

As you wait

you are always listening

mostly for answers

signs to guide you

always seeking

always searching

why are you not learning?

why did you stop fighting?

why do you keep hiding?

you stopped deciding

you didn’t choose love

you chose hate

you lost hope

you let fear in

 you can be fearless

adventure into the unknown

take the path less traveled

open your heart

let love in

let god in

find faith

bind it with all your heart

it’s your decision

it always has been


Holding on to Hope

Once upon a time there was a young girl, with many dreams and a whole lot of hope. She watched a lot of Disney movies, and believed in fairy-tales. She would sing loudly in the streets with her best friends to Faith Hill and Carrie Underwood. ( she still does this ) As she grew older, her dreams slowly slipped away. Somehow hope stuck around, and with that, she was able to beat the odds. That little girl is me! 23 years of age, I have decided to dream again!  With a new found inspiration, this blog is where I will begin.

A lot of my photos that I will be posting, or already have posted were captured by my best friend, who also happens to be a wonderful photographer… so you can check her out ———->  <——

What do you WANT?

A famous scene from “The Notebook”, we all know it, there are memes about it! Noah yelling at Ali ” WHAT DO YOU WANT?! ” It’s not that simple!” Her head and her heart were not aligned. ( The Head and the Heart <– really good band, check them out!!) A difficult connection sometimes! Knowing what we do not want, often comes easier than knowing what we actually want. Like Ali, we worry about what other people want for us, what other people will think of us, and a fear of failing to get what we want. Fear is the root of most failures, and turning our backs on our dreams seems a lot simpler..safer. With that mindset, we are failing before we even begin. I think we forget how powerful our thoughts really are! Our thoughts are the deciding factor of how our day, week, month, year, ect.. are going to go. So focusing on what we do not want, will not get us any closer to what we DO want. I recently came across this simple theory of what we think is what we get. Sounds pretty crazy, but is it? Finding a way to shift your mindset from negative to positive will make all the difference to living a happy life. Find whatever it is that makes you happy, and channel that. For me it can be as simple as playing a certain song ( right now that would be -Something just like this by Coldplay & The Chainsmokers or thanking God for the good things I have. I realize that’s easier said than done sometimes- we all have crap, some of us hide it better than others, crap is always there! BUT we all have at least one good thing! So use that, channel that one good thing, and you will find your thoughts will shift from negative to positive 🙂 Figure out what you want, and it will soon be what you have !
