It’s Impossible


I was talking to someone the other day. It was just a casual conversation. We talked about school, friends, and family. Everything was going great until he asked me what I wanted to do with my life. I usually hesitate or lie when people ask me what I want to do. I do this because the responses I get upset me. I still decided to give this person a chance. Maybe he was different. Maybe he would approve.He might even encourage me. That’s what I thought and I was wrong. He gave the same blank stare everyone else gave. He laughed and said my dreams were impossible. I smiled and walked away. I am used to people responding that way. I was not offended at all. People do not know my strengths or my weaknesses. They do not know what I am capable of. This guy was not talking about what I could or could not do. He was talking about himself. When people see others who are serious about their dreams, it scares them. It is so rare. People always have a back up plan for their dreams. They “know” their dreams won’t come true. They “know they are not good enough.They know they are not serious. They do not understand people who are. They expect for everyone else to know what they  “know”. They expect for everyone else to do what they do. They forget that I am not them. They forget that I am in control of my life. Anything is possible and nothing will stop me from pursuing what is meant for me.

” Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible!’ ”
-Audrey Hepburn

Don’t Judge, Just Love.


One thing that I can not stand is stereotypes.

They are usually unfair, out-dated, and downright wrong.

Even though I don’t like sterotypes, I admit to using them.

Sometimes I will see someone and make assumptions.

I judge them by how they look and behave.

It’s how I have been taught.

Life has taught me that this is wrong.

You can’t judge someone based on how they look or where they are from.

You can’t judge someone based on religion or gender.

You can’t judge someone if you don’t know their story .

Everyone has a  story.

Every story is unique.

There are a lot of things to learn  and lots of people to love.

So, stop stereotyping and start interacting .

Life is too short .

Don’t waste time judging.

Spend time loving.

“The more one judges, the less one loves.”

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.
