The Year of Rejection

“We all learn lessons in life. Some stick, some don’t. I have always learned more from rejection and failure than from acceptance and success.” Henry Rollins 2019 has held promise, but that promise has been suspended above me and I haven’t been able to reach it. Instead, I’m standing on a tightrope and rejection keepsContinue reading “The Year of Rejection”

Cross OVER THE THRESHOLD With Me

“In lipstick and hiking boots, Julie travels up the mountain to escape her life. What she doesn’t realize is that she’s about to discover a man who holds the power to transform her identity forever.” In my last post I wrote about my experience at my first writer’s conference. If you’d like to check it out, hereContinue reading “Cross OVER THE THRESHOLD With Me”

Even so, I went to see the film with an excitement that’s been building up sinceContinue reading “Why I Went to See The Shack”

Post-Grad Life: First Month

Walking across that stage and taking my diploma in hand was one of the most empowering experiences I’ve ever had. Getting a college degree is an accomplishment that not everyone can claim. I can now tell the world that I’m a college graduate, but having said that, the title comes with a little weight. Well,Continue reading “Post-Grad Life: First Month”
