FOR A DAY LIKE THIS ONE

Dear Father in heaven, we praise and exalt you. We thank you for everything for being faithful on your promises. Forgive us in all the moments we questioned our faith, in times that our faith bends and in times our faith crumbles. Father, we do not understand your majestic plans for us, but we entrust our lives in to your hands. Give us strength to overcome all our adversaries and keep hold on to our faith. Lastly Father, guide us, keep us in the right path and lead us to your kingdom in heaven. We ask this through Christ our…

BE GRATEFUL

The fact that March is nearly over is insane! Time has been passing by so quickly lately that it has been a necessary part of my day to stop and take a moment to reflect on everything and what my general goals are. Ambition and drive tends to whither down when you get caught up…

YOU INSPIRE ME

February 11th marks the date I was born into the world to live fearlessly, to explore with the right amount of optimism and caution, to love passionately, and to indulge in life’s limitless joys. Granted, I do these things less often than I would like; nonetheless, you all definitely inspire me to go out and live a little more. Thank you for your birthday wishes, I am so pleased to know such a kindhearted handful of people.  As always, thanks for stopping by. With love, – Rachaelle

DEAD END ROAD 

Dear you,  You wake up every day trying to be someone, to fit this mold you’ve built up in your head, glorified by only you. You wake up thinking, “How can I make myself better?” Never realizing that your standards of “better” are not related to improving yourself. Rather, you “better” yourself by changing your…

In state or out? Off campus living…

3 STEPS TO OVERCOMING FEARS

1. MENTALLY PREPARE YOURSELF  Whatever it is, it is going to take some time to allow your mind to fully grasp what is about to happen. So take that necessary time to relax, breathe, and get yourself ready!  2. EASE INTO IT  Everything takes time. Nothing should ever be rushed! It definitely helps to take it slow, bit by bit, and then eventually you will overcome that fear. Just imagine you have all the time you need, no one is pushing you but yourself. 3. JUST GO FOR IT  It’s time! If you really want to get over it, you…

4 DEFINITE WAYS TO ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS 

Self explanatory? Yes. But we all need this reminder every now and then. Go out there, take action, and actually accomplish your goals!  1. ELIMINATE DISTRACTIONS  Yes, I love to browse Instagram and online shop too. But if you are set on accomplishing something, you have to set things aside for a bit! If this is a goal that is truly important and beneficial to you, putting aside all distractions will help you get there faster. Work hard, and remember what you are working for.  2. TAKE STEADY, SMALL STEPS  The most of us are impatient and want to quickly…
