The thing with writing is that you must find your voice and reveal who you are.
Who are you and why are you writing?
What are you trying to tell the world?
Why should we read anything you write?
What is your purpose?
Are you writing to entertain, inspire, or simply to inform?
Are you holding back?
Don’t just write. Write with a purpose.
What you listen to produces doubt or faith. If your entourage consists of people with negative attitudes and limited minds, chances are you won’t go far in life. But if you fill your ears with words of life, your faith will grow.
Feed your faith and your fears will starve to death.
What we hear is critical.
Read Romans 10:17
People often wait for some sort of miraculous inspiration before they start doing what they supposedly love doing.
If you are passionate about something, that’s inspiring enough to keep doing it. Waiting for the “right” time may turn into never. The right time is today. Now. This second. That’s the right time.
What you focus on will determine your state of motion and feelings towards life.
Don’t let your future be determined by people of your past because those who created yesterday’s pain do not control today’s possibilities unless you let them.
Your words reflect what you believe about the future, so lose the language of loss an [...]
Everyone hates them.
But we all have them.
We try to hide from them.
Some even escape.
But only for some time.
They always come find us.
They come unexpectedly.
And they are never welcome.
But still, they insist on being a part of our lives.
They won’t go away.
They come and go.
We all have to go through them.
Don’t be a [...]
Don’t be confined by your own walls. Don’t blame others for your problems when in reality, you are the one to blame. Don’t blame someone else for the walls you built yourself. Accept the fact that you are human. Accept the fact that you aren’t perfect. Accept the situation. And break down those walls. Break them.
Some notes I found in an old notebook today…
Pushing through hardship can be difficult. One last push. Sometimes, that’s all it takes. Everyone faces difficulties in life. Why should you be the exception? Challenges, difficulties, trials, obstacles, however you want to word it, they build you up. They challenge you. They teach you lessons. Th [...]
One of the things I’ve had a hard time dealing with lately is realizing that some people just move on. I was speaking to a friend yesterday about how it feels as if most of my “friends” are no longer a part of my life since I got married. Only two remained.
Sometimes it’s hard to accept our new circumstances. I ask myself if I’ve done somethi [...]
Interesting article I found today.
So in China, every year, millions of students take their “Gaokao” also known as The National College Entrance Examination. It is a highly stressful exam. It’s been said that students have even committed suicide due to the pressure of passing the exam. That being said, there was one student in particular who [...]
“Some things are hard to write about. After something happens to you, you go to write it down, and either you over dramatize it, or underplay it, exaggerate the wrong parts or ignore the important ones. At any rate, you never write it quite the way you want to.”
― Sylvia Plath
I used to be afraid to tell people I was a writer. I doubted myself.
I didn’t know the real definition of a writer. I thought writers were only those who had published hundreds of books.
For the longest time, I wanted to be like someone else in my writing. I didn’t like the way I wrote.
I wasn’t an honest writer. Well, maybe I [...]
I promise I’ve been meaning to post something for the longest!
It’s not that I’ve been too busy, but I have had a lot going on at the same time! Good things!
I am in Pennsylvania right now for the last residency for my M.A in Creative Writing. I’m sitting here thinking about just how fast time goes. I remember exactl [...]
He sees you.
You are not alone.
Even though you might think you are alone, you’re not.
He’s right there.
He sees the tears you shed over unworthy things.
You keep praying for God to give you something that doesn’t belong to you.
Don’t quarrel with God about your future as if He didn’t design it.
That’s your problem.
You’re too much of [...]
