If you can’t be a sun, be a star

A large majority of you that read my blogs are between the ages of 15-21 and with school right around the corner, I thought this blog was fitting. Six months before Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated, he spoke to a group of kids at a high school in Philadelphia on October 26, 1967. […]

What We Leave Behind

There are so many feelings but no words. I don’t want to explain it. I want to run away from it and never have to feel this again. My life is always screaming at me. It’s so loud that sometimes I can’t hear anything else. There is always something I need to understand. Something I […]

My Promise To You…

There are many promises I have made throughout my life. Many, I could not keep. Not by choice. Some I have broke so hard that I wasn’t sure if I would ever heal from the impact. The hardest promises to let go of are the ones I had for myself. The promise of a new […]

A Letter

I wanted to write you a letter; I hope you don’t mind. There is just so much on my mind and so much I want to tell you. Before the hours turn into days and the days turn into months, and the months turn into years. I am standing alone looking out in the distance, […]

Painting You a Picture…

She made mistakes, but always learned her lessons. Every chapter of her life was filled with richness. But one day, […]

I’m Sorry

I’m sorry it had to be this way. I’m sorry it wasn’t fair. I wish more than anything it could have been. I wish none of this happened to you because you didn’t deserve it. I know you had dreams and aspirations. I know you planned so many things. You can’t do any of it […]

Some people are made when they are broken.

  I love doing “book reviews” and with so many amazing stories out there I am always finding something that inspires me. I bought Laura Hillenbrand’s book, “Unbroken”, on a craving for something different. I usually don’t read too many books based on real stories; I love the imagination. However, this one seemed like a […]

The Fault in our Stars

I bought John Green’s book while browsing through the bookstore, not really sure what kind of story I was looking for. The title caught my eye and when I read the description, I knew I’d immediately love it. Being a volunteer at the Canadian Cancer Society I wanted to read this book to give me […]

Fight Against ALS

Today I was going to post my usual monthly blog from MD Canada; however, I felt the need to write about something a little different. This blog will be different than previous posts and it will be very “raw”. Meaning, I am not going to read it ten times and edit it until its “perfect”. […]
