Self help, because you are your greatest asset.
Off the edge
I have never been so high before..to the point everyone below looks like ants. Only thing keeping me on the ledge is fear itself. But why does it hold me back so much? Why can’t I ever step forward? It’s so easy to look down but never so easy to look up. Why is it so vacant here? Why do I feel I may have to jump alone, on my own. Although I see myself so close to the edge, I’m yet so far from reaching where I want to be. Why must everyone I admire have to be looking upon the clouds while I’m all the way down here? It feels like I’m only a step away to reaching a new time high, I can feel it deep in my veins. But I feel something else much greater; fear. Someone may think “how can you be afraid of something you put yourself in front of?” I’ll tell you why. It’s because I have no idea what is to come after, I don’t know what to expect once I’m off this ledge. I don’t have a clue how hard this downfall could be, but I do know one thing. I will jump, whether it’s today, later, years from now, even a century, I am jumping! My skin is tingling at this point, my heart is racing and I’m drenched in sweat. This burning sensation of fear cannot beat my rush, I will jump! I can’t feel myself moving, but I can see myself taking the steps back. I can’t quite feel myself breathing, but I can feel my body easing and what was once fear is now this big boulder of encouragement.
Focus On The Path In Front Of You, Not The Mountain Ahead
As Originally Post on Medium The first day of kindergarten sucked for me. I was so scared to go because I didn't know what was going to happen. Would I make friends? Would the kids hate me? Would I upset my teacher?

I Have An Issue Asking For Help & Here Is Why
I HATE ASKING FOR OR NEEDING HELP! Like, for real! If I were out in the middle of an ocean and there was a liferaft full of people reaching out to save me 5 feet in front of me and an island 500 ft away from me — I’d probably swim to the island then reach out to them to SAVE ME.
The Importance Of Life Changes
All I cared about was myself, friends, and partying. I got mixed in with the wrong crowd and started using drugs and drinking. My life started spiraling down hill fast!
The importance of Gratitude.
“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.”- Ralph Waldo Emerson
It always rains before the rainbow
Do you ever wake up in the morning believing the people and things that surround you everyday are better off without you? I know I have. And I know I’m not the only one. Every day more and more people die by suicide, but why? I know for me it was because I felt alone during the times I needed someone the most, whether that be after a traumatic event or just on days I felt unworthy for life. No matter what had been going on at that time in my life or what wasn’t going on, I needed someone there to remind me that it always rains before the rainbow.
The other side of sadness.
Is there really one defining moment that transcends us into adulthood? One single event that takes us from an awkward teenager and thrusts us into a full-blown responsible adult? I don’t know about you but my answer? Absolutely fucking not. It has taken an abundantly large number of events to make me into the person I am today. I am 29 years old and still trying to figure out this grown-up thing. On most days I'm not even sure how I ever thought that at this age people actually had their shit figured out. If you do – kudos. However; this may be slightly more relatable if you feel like a train wreck and still don’t feel like an actual adult.
Brave Faces, Made of Lies
By the time August 2021 became September, I had completed a number of tasks, and moved through a series of events, that changed my life completely. Each one, alone, was a gamechanger; cumulatively, they amounted to a significant shift in the landscaping of my existence.
