Believing in me in the midst of Self Doubt

When I started writing I didn’t think it was good enough for others to read. I had lot of things going through my mind. I always kept my calligraphy and colored pens close to me. It was a form of art for me putting down my opinions. But self doubt always had a way of creeping into my head and reorganizing my goals. There’s always this voice saying somewhere “People will laugh at you. You’re not going to get this…

23

It’s the last day of my birth month and I decided to post today just because I feel like. So I’ve lived two decades and trennium and I feel ancient already. I try so hard so see if I can go with the trend and flow with my friends within my age range but it’s not that easy. Sometimes I feel like a mom, other times a guidance counselor. On a more serious note, 23 is such a cool age…

A Mile In Your Moccasins

Gradually you’re turning to the person you never said you’d be. You’re doing all the things you swore you’d never be caught doing. Finally you accept it as a lifestyle and make it who you are. We probably did not know what it felt like to experience the world in another person’s perspective and view life from their living conditions before we said we would never be like them or act the way they do. Most times from our comfort…

Tribute

Yesterday evening I went for Bible Study which turned out to be a wake keeping service for a 61 year old woman. I’ve never been to one so I decided to stay through the three hours it took. She died when she was serving in church (a sanctuary keeper). When it was time for the tribute, everyone had something great to say about her. She was so much loved and most people went on to celebrate how sure they were…

Say It

Speak your mind even if your voice shakes – Maggie Kuhn Looking at some talent auditions, you’d wonder how some people went for the auditions with so much confidence. They have friends and family that will rather tell them they’re good than ‘I think you should honestly work on this or change or career.’ Our unlooking game is the ultimate perfection We seal our lips because it will cost us the ones we hold dear We don’t say the truth…

An Excerpt From My Journal

I’ve had several embarrassing moments. I had to go through my journal to take the one that’s more recent, annoying and funny.  There was this guy in my French School then, his name was Andre (he had “strong ties with the people of France??,” that’s why he had a French name). We weren’t close in my first two sessions. We only spoke when we got paired for conversations. I just knew there was something strange about him I couldn’t figure…

Let’s Talk Jesus

We all get stumped  Let us talk about Jesus. Let’s stop spending most of our lives healing our emotions. We don’t feel qualified and look like we are all shades of messy speaking about Christ. We get scared and shy sharing what we believe, especially if the person we are talking to express the opposite of our faith. It’s good to have real conversations especially when you subtly share Jesus with others through them.  You don’t have to discriminate or…

My Best Story

I decided to read my favourite story one last time It was accompanied with nausea rippled in an empty stomach The only light I could see was darkness and shadowy forms of anguish My fingers were numb as my throat was dry from pain My palms were sweaty and sticky as I stared on the story that was once filled with sunshine  My heart was a raging inferno with no relief to be found The pages were blurred from rivulets…
