Today is Resurrection Day and I am so blessed to be feeling well. A few weeks ago, I was in a Tiny Buddha forum and someone mentioned the INFJ personality. I have heard of people using personality acronyms, especially in the online dating community, but I never felt the need to look into it. Similarly to astrology and horoscopes, I just don’t like to rely on these kinds of things to tell me who I am. However, when Continue reading →
The final question that this article asks was my second favorite question because it forced me to really dig deep into my feelings.
5. If money were no object, how would you live your life differently?

4. What makes you genuinely happy?
Gonna be honest here and say that this question was my favorite. Thinking about the things that make me happy has made me so happy. I mean, who doesn’t love to think about their favorite things in life? The author suggests considering childhood dreams and funny enough, I was just chatting with some girlfriends about my childhood passions. The things that have always made me happiest were handmade crafts, studying Japan and Japanese, and close relationships. Of course, as an adult and now a Christ-follower, God and my relationship with Him definitely make this list! Continue reading →
Question 2: What is your ninety-second personal elevator speech?
So, I’m continuing on from my last post about a tinybuddha article that has really given me some important things to meditate on. The second question actually caught me by surprise because this article focused on gaining a better sense of my life’s purpose, yet here I am being posed an interview question. I honestly skipped it each time I’ve come back to read the article and I’ve contemplated skipping it here too. Then I started to think, perhaps that’s exactly why I should be paying attention. I tend to disregard things that are sometimes very important just because of the way I came across them.
The author suggests approaching this question as if Continue reading →
After some recent sad events, I’ve been questioning myself a lot. It seems like just a couple of weeks ago I was riding through life on “cruise” mode, but as soon as things got a little hectic I jumped on the brakes and grabbed the wheel. It’s uncomfortable, if I’m being honest. The time that I spent cruising through life was the first time that I have felt free in a long time. I wasn’t concerned too much with anything. Not work or school, nothing. I just told myself it’ll all work out the way God intends and I solely focused on my part- which was to just keep doing my best. One forced kiss, verbal altercation, and academic situation later and I’m back where I started. Struggling to navigate through life on terms that I set out of self-preservation.
In the midst of finding my way back to peace, I decided to do some searching through the Continue reading →
There is a familiar voice in my head that makes me miserable when I should be happy. That’s what I’d define as “anxiety”. Recently, I’ve taken the approach (as often as I can) to roll up my sleeves and uppercut the shit out of it.
Okay, maybe I’m making myself sound tougher than I actually am. Continue reading →
Gosh, this will not be one of my happier posts. So there’s your warning lol.
Nobody likes to make choices that will cost them a big burden, right? For some, this could be a choice that leads to great financial strain or the loss of a physical item. That’s not what I’m going to be writing about here though. I’m talking about the decisions that cost you the people and relationships that might mean the most to you right now. Continue reading →
