Faith in love

Getting older and wiser doesn't mean loving and letting love gets easier. You see a lot more beauty though.

Life: It is about the gift not the package it comes in. ~Dennis P. Costea, Jr.

Life is  funny.  I'm enjoying mine and very grateful for it. I have an array of friends and family. Wonderful people who would help me at any moment if I needed it.

This week my aunt died. I asked a family member for a favor and they turned me down. I was furious and started swearing and yelling because I was so upset at their selfishness. It's frustrating to grow up with parents who give a their all to their children to support them and then see their brothers and sisters only focus on themselves.

My boyfriend and I had a long talk later that night about people who are Christian, preach their faith and religious views  to other people but don't really commit to constantly asking the question : What would Jesus do?, in everyday situations.  I never really thought about it. I guess I thought being aware that I am wrong with some actions that I take toward people was justifying my poor decisions.  This conversation made me realize that I have to keep working on the way I react to things. Really pray for guidance and peace so I can react with less anger and more love, especially, towards my family.

There is that old saying, you can pick your friends but you can't pick your family. I love my family I really do but I need to start helping them more and be more kind to each of them. My goal is to show  them love even when they drive me crazy!!! :)

"Don't let people drive you crazy when you know it's in walking distance." ~Author Unknown

This is all I'm going to think about this semester. I'm not going to let people get to me :)... Well.. I'm going to try anyway. While I'm at it, I'll try not to get to people either!!

Church is a good reminder that I need to practice what a I preach and being patient with people is one of them!

Oh Rome! How I miss you!

Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try! ~Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Thinks You Can Think!

Think think think. ...

I was recently asked to speak at Georgetown University at the end of October beginning of November. I'm so excited. I can't believe the doors that are opening for me. I'm so blessed and thank God for the life experience that he has given and the company he has provided.
So amazing.. words can't express how much I feel loved  and honored to have the family and friends I do. I'm truly grateful.
