    Positivity : The power of your words

    Something I have learned throughout my life is that my tongue has a lot of power. James says the tongue is a spark that can set an entire forest on fire. And yet most times I forget. In the name of self depreciating jokes or being ‘real’, I get lost in spewing negative words. And I know am not the only one; we find ourselves saying things like ‘it’s ok I’m just average’ and ‘I don’t care, I’m a savage.’ And all this is in the name of being ok with who you are and being real. We forget that what we speak will always come to life, I mean…

    10 of the best action/thriller Christian book series(PART 1)

    Action… the thrill of the chase, the depth of the mystery, your blood pumping, your head pumping, your heart racing and then “Hey!” someone yells at you and you fight the urge to punch them in surprise, horror or anger. That is the thing about action books, unlike the TV series or movies, you get to imagine the story for yourself; picture the characters described, live in the places and root for the good guys all without getting out of bed and no WiFi. I love me some good thriller/action books, not too gory and with just the right amount of romance without it being too mushy and we are…

    Dealing with stress and anxiety: How to train your mind to think positive

    “As a man thinks in his heart so is he…” and “out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.” These are some of the few verses that really encapsulate how important positivity and positive thinking is. We are told do not worry because worrying adds no day to our lives or inch to our heights and to focus on today. But how does this positive thinking work?

Why are we still struggling with anxiety and depression if it is as simple as a positive mindset?…

    5 things to do when you don't know what to do

    “I don’t know…” We say that often. Mostly because we really don’t want to give our opinion because it will be a shocker or we are tired of talking or we do not want to be held accountable if our advice makes life worse for someone. But occasionally we really really just don’t know. Everything is confusing, grey and murky. It’s like viewing the world through fog-covered glasses; you sorta know there’s something but you can’t really be sure either way. And if you’re like me then you get anxiety, panic attacks, migraines, irritable and you begin to question your very sanity, like actually begin to think you are mad.…

    What is love? ( A sorta love Poem)

    Ask most people these days about love and they tell you about heartbreak. They talk about pain, unrequited feelings and unfaithfulness. They talk about abandonment,lies and empty promises. They tell you about abused trust, abused bodies and shame. They tell you of trying so hard only to be ridiculed and left for broken. Most people are so cynical about love that even if it is offered free of charge and without strings they still wait for the other shoe to drop. And no one can blame you, I mean our experiences with so called ‘love’ have been terrible. We all know of the boy who gave his heart to a…

    Trust your journey

    Look at you, you’re so young. Yet you’re stressed ,depressed and carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders. You’re weary and tired as if you’ve lived 10 lives already. Your heart is so battered and bruised and yet it hasn’t even known true love yet. You’re so lost in maze you put yourself in while trying so hard to build yourself.

Struggling so hard to ‘have your life figured put’ Fighting with every breath to ‘make it’ You’re crying yourself to sleep because you can’t find…
