7 months in S.A.

Wow! I can’t believe I’ve lived in South America for a total of 7 months. . . . Half a year of living on another continent.Half a year of learning another language.Half a year of living in another culture. . . . It’s crazy to think about all the things I’ve done / learned in…

As I sit here…

Here I am, waiting… Learning patience everyday! I sit here and wait. My day will come. I just know it, so I wait. Patience is a skill. I’m perfecting it. I get better and better – Everyday, I wait. I get discouraged. But, I never stop learning. There is a reason. I don’t know it…

The rear-view mirror…

Your breakthrough is coming! . . . “Dreams in the rear-view mirror are closer than they appear.” Although, you should keep looking forward when chasing your dreams; sometimes you need to glance backwards at the progress you’re making along the way because that progress is actually your dreams starting to come true. Think about it…

Birthday Goals?

So, today’s a weird / crazy / awesome day… . . . Today is my birthday, and I don’t know how to feel because I try to do this thing every year; I try to spend my birthday in a new country every year, so I can remember that birthday, and that country. But, for…

A Time For Everything!

Have you ever asked yourself the question: “What am I still doing here?”. . . . Well, I have. And, I know it’s never a good question to ask yourself because it very rarely has a good answer. (the answer to that question usually discourages you.) You see… Usually, when you ask yourself that question…

Every Mile Matters…

“It’s history You can’t rewrite it You’re not meant to be trapped inside it Every tear brought you here Every sorrow gathered Yeah, it’s history And every mile mattered“ . . . Life is full of ups and downs… it’s full of good decisions and bad decisions… . . . Right now you’re either at…

It all makes sense…

I finally understand everything that happened before this trip. . . . So, here I am. I made it to Chile! I am living in this beautiful country, teaching English and learning Spanish with my host family. The process to get here was long, but definitely worth it! But, there are still days that feel…

Put in the work!

You can’t just put in work when you feel like it. Success won’t come overnight. Your dreams won’t accomplish themselves. Whatever it is that you want to accomplish; YOU have to put in the work EVERYDAY! Results come with consistency and patience! . . . I’ve been living in Chile for 2 months and I…

My Own Material

For today’s post, I was challenged to look through my old Facebook, Instagram or Twitter posts and pick something that stood out to me and write what I think about it now. . . . So, I chose to look through my Instagram feed and, while scrolling through, my very first Instagram post stood out…

A rollercoaster year!

Hold up! Wait! Before I even start to talk about this past year, I just have to say that in the beginning of this year I would have never imagined being here in Chile for New Year’s. That’s just crazy! . . . I’ll admit, this year has had it’s down/low moments, but in general,…

No control… 

~There’s something so scary, yet, so “comforting” about not having control over part of your body/future.~ . . . So, today, I went to the dentist to get a filling and he numbed part of my mouth/face. And, during the process I felt the numbness start and I was fine because I could feel it…

Free Love! (your Sunday reminder) 

* * * Please read ’til the end! Thanks! * * * Jesus, the son of God, literally stood in front of death to save you! Think about it this way: Jesus was just walking by and he saw you in trouble, so, he came over and stood in front of you to protect you…

Half Full V.S. Half Empty

So, today’s been a very confusing day… . . . I woke up being super positive and ready to conquer the day, but then, I checked my emails and read a message that really lowered my spirits. I didn’t want to conquer the day anymore, I said: “what’s the point, something else like this will…

4 years ago…

Warning: Depressing, Inspirational & Real Post . . . Throwback time! (by that I mean; first blog post throwback!) I won’t go into too much detail; Let’s just say, four years ago today, I was at a VERY low point in life and I decided to open-up the bible and pray. After doing so, I…

Find Your Purpose!

  Let’s face it, sometimes you have a bad day (week, month, year, etc.) that you think will never end. But, think about it, they have all passed before, so why should this time be any different? . . . Well, this time you can make it Better; By Finding Your Purpose. Here’s how: Think…

Patience…

Alright, let’s Face it, you’ve said: “I give up!” at least once in your life. Whether you said it because you were just done with everything or you said it because you were tired of waiting for something better; you’ve given up at least once. . . . Well, let me tell you, giving up…

Looking forward..

Ever feel overwhelmed about “finding your purpose”? … Well, good news! Your ‘ikigai’ is always evolving! ikigai: A Japanese concept, that means; “a reason for being”, it is very similar to the French phrase; “Raison d’être”. Everyone has an ikigai. Finding it requires a deep and often lengthy search of self during a long period…
