We All Have a Clock. What Truly Matters Most When You’re Running Out of Time?

Angela-the-One
 Sometimes I wonder are we similar to hamsters running around a wheel, waiting for change in circumstances around the corner, certain that the busyness is a part of life and always striving for more and never feeling completely satisfied with what we have in life.

Be True To Yourself

Be true to yourself. Follow your heart and pursue your passions. Don't let others dictate how you should live your life. I personally believe that we'll be much happier looking back on a life lived authentically, even if it wasn't completely what we hoped for or easy. I've learned to never ever lose hope despite what I may go through in life. ...

How Can I Not Offer to Help Them Out?

because-of-you-I-didnt-give-up
Around the time the stay-at-home order was enacted here in Miami, a teenager told me that her family was short on essentials and toilet paper. I had bought some the day before for my household and said, "I'll share what I have just provide me your home address and I will drop them off the next morning. I would've never expected that this family was...

I Found New Ways To Connect With What Matters

Angela-Chapman-Volunteer-Missio_20200822-231152_1
  Sometimes we are surprised by the behaviors of those looking out for themselves, and then again sometimes we can be surprised by the behaviors of those who go above and beyond for others.

Pain is uncomfortable

 Sooner or later, we must distinguish between what we are, not what we would like to be. The beauty is that there is always something new to discover. Imagine how sad it would be if there wasn't. I needed to know why I was here. I needed to show myself to be true, speak up and stand up for me. We don't have to run away from something, nor do w...
