    Driving a lot means that you need something to do while looking out the window. I find that listening to music makes that stare much easier. The one problem that I have been facing is that I have limited Cds and I have listened to all of them at least two bazillion times. Still needing my joyful noise, I decided to turn on the radio. I am a country fan, but those stations only play the same five songs per 45 minutes, which means that I got bored really quickly. I scanned through the channels, hoping to find something new. I quickly stumbled upon this song. This song had a great beat, but that isnt what drew me to it. The message behind the great beat held my heart for the whole three minutes. If you have heard “Scars to your beautiful by: Alessia Cara” Then you know what I am talking about. The song is perfect for those fighting within to stay about their appearance.

“She just wants to be beautiful, she goes unnoticed, she knows no limits, she craves attention, she praises an image she prays to be.”

These are the first lyrics to the song. How could you start off a song any better? But then she goes on.

“Oh, she don’t see the light that’s shining, deeper than the eyes can find it, Maybe we have made her blind, so she tries to cover up her pain and cut her woes away, Cause cover girls don’t cry after their face is made.”

We live in a world full of girls and guys that are told they’re ugly. They are told that they will never amount to anything. They will be told that they must be certain way if they ever want to achieve their goals. Because of the world telling these amazing people that they are nothing, they forget that they are bright as the stars and will no longer shine. The grow dim, shutting off to the world and will let the world began to mold them into something that they are not. Broken inside they will cover up behind a smile, because deep inside they believe they are nothing without all the make-up.

Alessia goes into the chorus to say:

This world is a dark place. The people will never accept you, because they will always find something that is wrong, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t shine. You are the person that you are suppose to be and that shouldn’t change because of someone’s words. Instead, you should stand up against them, say screw changing yourself and change their hearts.

There are girls and guys out there starving themselves because of models. These people say that its okay to starve, that they can handle the pain. They want to do everything in their power to be accepted, so they will starve themselves until they begin to fade away. What these people don’t understand is that they are perfect. These people that are hurting were worth our attention before they began to starve themselves.

What can we do though?

We can be the ones that help them. She was told by another girl that she isnt pretty, so tell her that she is pretty. He was told, by another boy that he is too girl, so tell him he is great the way he is. She is being made fun of because she is 400 pounds, so step in and tell them to lay off. Grab her bags and help her. He is being made fun of because he smells, so buy him some deodorant. Simple things can help people overcome a lot. You don’t have to have superpowers to be someone’s hero, just be you.
If you are someone that is fighting with your self-image, remember that you are beautiful. No one can take the place of you, because only you are the perfect you. No one else can smile like you, laugh like you or love like you. Your life is beautiful even with scars. You are bright as the stars when you smile, so keep your head up. You’re not alone, we are in this together. Stop chasing after something that you’re not, because you are perfect just the way you are.

Let it feel like the very first time.
It doesn’t feel like Christmas time; well other than the horrid ice on the ground. For the last few years Christmas hasn’t felt like Christmas! I don’t know if its from being at work, a lot or if it is just not as magical as it use to be, but I don’t like it! I don’t like not feeling warm and cozy with family. I go back to being a kid and I started to thing; what does Christmas really feel like? Well, what did it feel like that is!

I go back to my childhood and all I remember was I didn’t buy gifts. Well, I bought my parents gifts if they gave me the money, but I never had to stress about what the perfect gift was. They were my parents, they were forced to love anything I got them; it was in the handbook!!!!!! The main thing was that they didn’t care what they got. But I never had to worry about the perfect gift, so I guess that is what put me in a magical mood for Christmas. Stress does amazing things to the body, especially make you hate the things you use to love.

We get so worked up over the perfect gift, that we forget to look at the things that we love. For me, it is the magical feeling of Christmas. For others, it could be the joy of making sugar cookies. Either way, we will want to buy the best present ever so we stress over what people think of a certain gift, causing a big stress bubble, also taking you away from doing the things that makes Christmas, Christmas.

To make a change we will need to do one thing; forget about presents. Who cares about presents, anyway? What you get someone will only last for two years, then those items will be replaced with new items; so why care about what present you get? Instead, why not make memories that will last a lifetime? As a child, I wanted to make non-bake cookies with mommy and then go to bed early. Then I would wake up early and sit on her lap and open presents, but that wasn’t what was important. I loved the time that we got the night before while watching movies and making snacks. If I didn’t get a present; who cares? Christmas is about joy. Don’t allow buying presents take that joy away from you!!!! That isnt the point of Christmas!

     I want to bring an old post back up. This post might have been shared before, but it still is something that I feel can help people. I dealt with a lot in the organizations of Religion and this post goes through my struggles. I want to make a follow up to this blog, so expect that soon. Until then, enjoy this post!

Impromts Top Ten: Im going to hell!

I spent ten years in one church. That’s more time in one church than most spend in a church their whole lives. I would attend (or attempt to) every Sunday and Wednesday. On top of that, I would attend other church functions such as: Prayer nights, youth rallies, Christian concerts, and anything else that had to do with Jesus.

At the time it was nice, I had a family that I could count on in the church, yet something deep down was missing, something that I needed to survive. I found this school, and decided if I wanted to stay a Christian I had to go!

Let me be brutally honest; I went to college to escape the fact that I was failing as a Christian. I wasn’t feeling anything in the church I was attending anymore; I had gone cold to the feeling of God. Seeing myself dying, I had to make a quick decision. I signed up for World Revival Church School of Ministry. I got accepted, now let me tell you this, I honestly did start feeling God more while College got closer. I almost told them I wasn’t coming because of that fact.

I pushed through the doubt and packed my stuff, which was hard since my best friend stayed with me the night before departure. But I had to do it, Jesus wanted me to anyways, or so I thought. I said goodbye to my father, jumped in my car, and headed west for Kansas City, Missouri.

I could explain why I didn’t last there, but there will be a post inLetters To The Chapel that will explain all the juicy details! It’s actually a good story that you should read when it’s posted. It will give you a different view on life!

Fast-forward—à>>>>>

I met my fiancé in March after coming back from College. Everything was still fine with church; I was focusing on my career in Youth Ministry. My pastors were including me in the service, which is what I always wanted.  On top of all of that, I was feeling God again! Then the walls fell over.

I got called in the office one Wednesday night by the pastor, which for me was never a good thing. They heard by a birdie that I was staying with my girlfriend (Now fiancé). This was true, but there were good reasons. They wanted me to tell them personal points in our relationship that I wasn’t willing to share. The conversation ended with me resigning from the church, and the pastors asking if they can pray that my girl and I would split up!!!!! I quickly exited that church….

In less than a month after that incident all my friends from church told me they couldn’t be friends, and I decided to continue my life, until a woman from the church stuck her nose in it. I made a status on Facebook saying that everything sends you to hell if you go by what the church says. She commented that I was going to hell due to living with my fiancé…like really? Am I?

Should I have broken up with the love of my life because they felt I was in the wrong? Am I overreacting? And most importantly should I feel bad for not going to church? Or Should I repent in the name of the Holy Lord above, so he won’t strike me dead?

Am I a bad Christian?

Today I want to hear from you! What stories do you have that regard the church, either happy or sad! I want to hear! Leave them in the comments!!!

   Where do we go from here?
I’m not close to where I want to be, when it comes to my blog. I still want to break some big milestones, including 1,000 followers! It is a realistic goal, since everyday I get better at this. I have faith that soon, I will be at 1,000 followers, then it will be time to update that goal. We have a far ways to go, though.
Along with the views, I want to also get my novel written and published. This is a big goal for me and hopefully I will get it done, very soon. This is on my list, but I want to gain a bit more support, on my other stories (Night Crawler Journals and Letters to the chapel,) before I share my novel with you.
Also, as promised before, I do plan on bringing that clothing line out. There was a little hiccup in the processing, one that caused me to postpone the making of the t-shirts. But I do promise, they are coming. I hope by the next 2-months. More information to come.
My friend and I are working on a new page, not for this blog, but for something g close to my heart. The information is strictly confidential, at this point, but once I can share, I will.

   I have been doing this seriously, for only a couple months. I have stopped in the past, and then came back. But if you want to add all the time, then I am a true veteran at this. But since we aren’t, then I am still a rookie at getting the stats. I just recently found out how to tag things, and that you are more likely to gain views if your post has a photo.
   It’s the simple stuff that will get you and will cause you to fail. As a writer, you have to be very detailed, or you will become another number, another stat. I am glad that I found this out before it was too late, luckily I found out, at the beginning of my career, so now I can use my knowledge, and do amazing things, while still growing with that knowledge!
Currently, we are only 27 post away from 300 post, and a handful of views away from 2,000. I can’t believe the numbers, it was like yesterday we started this wonderful blog, now we are almost to 300 post! Holy cow!
   I am excited to grow, and to connect with you, my fans. I have been majorly depressed, but know this, I am doing a lot better! And soon, I will be back to normal!

I have a feeling, one that is of my heart. One that says, no matter the struggle, I will stand tall. I will overcome anything that the demons have for me. I will do anything to become the person that I know I can be. I will be the one that God made me to be. I will make him proud. That attitude is starting today.
I have always had a negative tone to my voice. It is annoying tone, and one that I wish I could get rid of, but it seems like when something is going good, something stupid happens. I feel that if I have two good days, then that means that I will have three bad days. That is usually what happens, too, but it isnt because bad things happen, though. It is because I will dwell on the bad instead of the good. Little things become big deals to me, on those days. If someone flips me off, as an example, that will ruin my day, and put me in a bad mood. This is how my mind works, and has worked for years. But all this will change, starting today.
I cant be depressed, anymore. I have too much good going for me. I am at the top of where I can be at my job, and I make good money. I always have extra cash at the next paycheck. My bills are always fully paid off, and there is never a question if we will have the money to pay next month. We get to go out, and have fun. We have a warm house. My writing is starting to catch attention of some viewers. I have nothing to stress about, anymore.
I have to get out of this down-mood, or I will never further myself in life. I will have a bad day, and will cut everyone off. But the worse part is; when I get into a bad mood, my blog suffers horribly. I will be angry when I edit the post, and it causes me to think badly of perfectly great work, which in the end is gutted and posted anyways. Then when I simmer down, I look at the support, and wonder why I hated the blog so much in the first place.
But when I was sitting here, I began to think. I wondered why I was always in a bad mood. There was the pattern, listed above, and I knew I needed to change. That is when I began to change for the better. Every time something stupid happens now, I just remind myself of the amazing days that are coming up. This has tripled the amount of Good days I have, in a week. I seem to be happier, and my blog is enhancing due to it. I am proud that I am feeling this way. I know it is needed, and I hope that you guys can take my experience and make your attitude better, as well!
