Warmth of the Sun

Good Morning!!

I must say, there’s something soothing about feeling the Sun’s rays fall on your face. Seeing the sun peek through the blinds as you wake up should put you in an instant good mood. At least it does for me. I can recall times even I felt I had nothing to smile about, but when I stepped outside, I couldn’t help but smile as the sun kissed my skin. This morning was no different.

I can only hope that this good mood continues for the rest of the day.




Baked Apple Chips

Baked Apple Chips

So, in yet another attempt to eat healthy this year, I picked up some apple chips from Walgreen’s for a snack while at work.
And OMG, they were delish! I just knew there had to be a recipe out there so I could make my own!

I will be making these as soon as school starts for a quick (and cheap) snack on the go! I will let you know how they turn out.

Any suggestions for other quick AND healthy snacks would be appreciated!!

In order to change you must know what you can change and when you have the chance to change, do it and understand why you did. – Amos

On a journey to become a better person, change is more than necessary; it is essential. I believe that progress is a process and if true progress is to be made then some change must occur. I think he’s saying that to grow you should be aware of what changes need to be made in your life, thoughts, and actions. And instead of being afraid of change like most of us are, stop thinking about it and just do it. When you do make the change, understand what made you change and why you decided to finally make the change.

Life is a journey and you can never be absolutely sure where you’ll end up. But, that’s where the fun is, isn’t it??

I guess I’ll find out.

In order to cha…

Hello & Welcome 2013

Hey there!
Thanks for taking the time out to read!

So, what’s this all about?? Well, a friend of mine requested me to try writing again and this blog is the result of that request.  Some posts may be random or incomplete thoughts, some may poems (maybe), and some may be extremely long and be about nothing at all. I guess the point is, don’t expect to much.

I haven’t been able to write much since my dear friend and lover passed away in 2008. This is semi-new territory for me that I’m willing to venture into for the sake of myself. So please forgive me if I’m brutally honest or if it seems like this is a waste of your time. This is yet another attempt at introspection that I hope to gain something from.

2013 will be a very important year in my life. I will be getting my first degree in May, managing my own business (well sort of), and preparing to REALLY grow up. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t scared out of my mind, but becoming fearless is one of many goals that I have for this year. But I know “For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” (2 Timothy 1:7). So with that in mind, I’m ready for whatever this year may bring, at least, I hope so.

Positive and constructive feedback is welcomed. Anything other than that would be a waste of my time and yours.

Thanks again for reading. Come back soon.

Christen ❤
