The Me I Want To Be

Ask yourself who you want to be?

The Me I Want To Be

"The difference between who you are and who you want to be...Is what you do."

Ask yourself: are you who you want to be? It's a simple question, yet the hardest to respond to. I believe that each person is put on this earth with a purpose. God has created us to be the person He needs us to be. He made us each to be extraordinary in our own ways. With that being said, are you happy with who you are? If not, improve yourself by being who you want to be.

For me, I never thought about this simple question until my coworker asked me to describe who I want to be with one adjective. I replied back that I really wasn't sure. She told me to give it a week and let her know what my thoughts were. After a few days, it finally hit me. I wanted to be inspiring. I want to have the effect of inspiring other people to do more, to be a better person and to do what they love. Whatever it is that you want to be, don't be afraid to let that happen. Show people who you really are.

Growing up, I always had a picture in my head of what my life should look like through the different time frames I faced. However, the picture of my life for the future doesn't look like my life right now in the present. I have realized that God's plan for me is much more than what I thought I was only capable of doing when I was younger. I am here for a purpose as everyone else is as well. It's your life, so make the changes. If you want to be a worldly person then travel the world, if you want to be motivating then, be positive, if you want to be kind then do things for others, etc. If you have an idea of who you want to be then fulfill that trait.

For me, I'm always looking to learn more and improve myself so that I can be the best possible version of me. I have more than one goal, and I am constantly adding more responsibilities to my list because that's how I am. I want to inspire people to do what they want and to be who they want. It's that simple. No its, ands or buts about it. Therefore, are you the person who you want to be? If not, change it; you have all the power you need to fix it.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
