I Should Have Loved You First

If I had to do it again, I would have chosen you first.

I Should Have Loved You First

Everyone is searching for something or someone.
Either for who they are, who they want to be, or who they want to be with.
We are all lost and in need of something or someone to follow.

If I had to do it again, I would have chosen you first.

The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you” Psalms 32:8 (NLT)
If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me. Jeremiah 29:13 (NLT)

All my life I’ve spent looking for something, or someone to complete me.
I have been longing to have someone fill parts of my heart that felt empty.
It wasn’t until the last few years I have found that no one can do that for me.
We are all human and we all fail.
No one will ever be enough for me; no one but Jesus.

Knowing what I know now about who I am and whose I am; I wish I could start over.
I would have fallen in love with the one who created me.
I would have followed his word and his love story for my life.
I would have found myself secure in his love for me instead of desperately seeking approval and love from others around me.

The thing about life is there are no do-overs.
You only have one life to live.
I know I haven't always gotten it right, and that will never change, but from here on out I am deciding to love you first.
I am choosing to set you as number one in my life.
I won't chase after someone or something else, and I won't turn to anyone who isn't chasing after you too.

Search me oh God, and know my heart;
Test me and know my anxious thoughts.
Point out anything that offends you
and lead me along the path of everlasting life.
Psalm 139: 23-24 (NLT)

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
