Burning Darkness

It all starts with a spark To bring light into the dark With the simple strike of a match Hope within begins to hatch   The fire begins as a single flame As we slowly remember our true name Adding my fears and doubts to the fire Just fuels my passion and desire   The fire increases and begins to grow Reminding me what I truly know That the lies hide in the night But…


Finding joy within the pain

I truly believe there are others that struggle during the Christmas season because I am one of them. I write this to share my story and to help myself in the healing process.

I know this sounds confusing but by the end you…

This is sorta a continuation of sharing the personal side of me. As you read this please remember that every introvert is not the same. We are…


I can’t do this on my own. Will you help me?

positive change

As I write this, my anxiety has been on full throttle for about the last 48 hrs. So many thoughts and emotions constantly flooding my mind. Yes my medication has helped but I can still feel my anxiety raging. I just want to hide under my bed covers and cry myself to sleep but I can’t.

How groups play an important role in your development

These can help us see our life from a different perspective and show us the correct path to take towards our dreams. Once you have read them, the only support and accountability provided is from yourself. After some time, you might give up because the struggle may be too much to handle anymore. This is where a group…
