Now I Need Some Inspiration…..


He who can take advice is sometimes superior to him who can give it.

Karl Von Knebel

Well, here goes nothing. It has always been my dream to live in a big city. I have been trying to find ways to get to one my entire life and when I finally find a way, I can’t go. Well, at least I think I can’t.  I decided to transfer to a school in California . I was accepted, but my father refuses to sign the papers. I can’t get money for school without them. He is refusing to sign because he wants me to stay where I am until I graduate.  I have been trying to stay optimistic, but it’s hard.  It’s Christmas and all I can think about is if I will be able to go.  I keep on seeing these stories on the news and I know that tomorrow is never guaranteed. That is why I am trying to live my life to the fullest. Things are so much easier on television when you are not the one experiencing the struggle.  I never thought that my own family would keep me from following my dreams. I afraid to make the wrong decision, but I do not know the right one. So, now I am asking for advice. What should I do ?

Back-up Plan


Every since I was a little girl, I knew what I wanted to do. I wanted to help people with my words. I threw myself into anything that would let me. I was the busiest girl in school. Noone could tell me my dreams weren’t coming true. I won awards for my writing. I was in every drama production and I had the grades to match. Everything was going as planned. I was going to be like Oprah. I thought I was unstoppable and then someone stopped me. Her name was life.My parents got divorced during my seventh grade year of middle school. Everything changed. My dad did not have enough money on his own. Noone could pick me up after school.  I had to stop doing everything that I loved. I could not play the cello after school. I could not practice scenes in the drama room. The only thing I could do was go home. I had no choice and I was devastated.I just wanted for everything to get better. All I wanted was to see my family happy again. I doubted everything that I believed in.  My dreams were no longer important. I needed to survive. I needed money. Naturally, when college application time came around,  I  chose something scientific. Science majors always made the most money.I “needed” to make money, lots of money. My children would not struggle. We would survive. Making money was my new “dream”. No one was going to stop me.  I was on my way, but something was still bothering me . My old dreams resurfaced.  I tried to silence them but they would not listen.  So here I am, ready to try again.

I am forgetting about my backup plan and focusing on my real plan.  I will be getting my Bachelor’s Degree in Broadcast Journalism. Only God knows what the future holds. I am ready for this adventure.

Nothing can stop me.

I am Vulnerable.


I am vulnerable.

I worry about what people think.

I let them control me.

I make plans that I don’t follow through.

I have dreams that don’t come true.

I put everything above them.

I think they are unimportant.

I think I that they are too big.

I think that I am too small.

I am vulnerable.

Respected Life means so much to me.It is a part of my dream.

I will explain why.

When I was growing up, I did not have much.I watched my parents be belittled,bashed, and betrayed.

I watched them struggle. I watched them cry. I watched them smile.

They taught me how to live. They taught me how to fight. They taught me how to inspire.

My family has been without. We still are without, but we are happy. We won’t stop fighting. We won’t stop smiling.

My parents always tell me to strive for the best. They want me to pass every test.

I am vulnerable.

I don’t want my family to struggle. I don’t want them to cry.I want them to have the world. I throw myself into my studies.  I forget about everything else. I am only focused on getting better. I forget about fun. I forget about  friends. I forget about dreams.

I am vunerable.

I just want to help. I want to help more than my family. I want to help more than the poor. I want to help more than myself.I want to help the teen who doesn’t know how to fix her hair. I want to help the single dad or mom who is having trouble paying the bills. I want to help the  diabetic  on dialysis. I want to help anyone who wants to make difference.

I know that I don’t have the popularity of a celebrity. My blog is not a “top” blog, but I believe that it can help others.  I believe that everybody is somebody. If I can make  one person smile, then I have succeeded.

Well, what if I don’t succeed?  That is the question that I often ask myself. This is why I run away. This is why I’m inconsistent.

This is why I am vulnerable.

This is why I need to change.

This is why I will change.

This is why I am strong.
