Get Up.

I have been hearing something lately…but not with my ears. With my heart. Have you ever heard a phrase over and over again inside of you? Like a song that pops in your head at the most random times. And the more you try to get rid of it, the more it keeps coming back?…

I’m Confident.

I lack something. And that is confidence. To those that know me personally this may not seem so true. But I can assure you that it is. Making decisions (even the small ones) weighs me down. Being in new places throw me off and scares me. Not doing the right thing because I am uncomfortable. …

Literally. Just smile. 

At Church the other day a priest said something I thought was awesome. He was describing how everyone acts so bitter and down trotten all the time. There is such a lack of joy in the world.  He said, “people walk around like they were baptized in vinegar.” I laughed. Why?  Because it is so…

Self-hate ain’t great 

I talk to myself.  No, not out loud.  Hmmm wait. Maybe sometimes.  But what I mean by this is that we all talk to ourselves. Everyday. In our minds.  We hear our own voice more than we hear the voices of others. It is constant.  When we get up in the morning. While showering. While…

It’s So Lit.

When I was about four years old I had these dope light up sneakers. No joke. They were awesome. I remember jumping up and down, dancing, doing whatever I could to see the lights. If you didn’t move they did not light up. I never wanted the lights to stop.   Today, I was reminded of…

All I Do Is Swim, Swim, Swim, No Matter What

The other day I was treading water. Not because I was in trouble, but because I was competing. Like in the movie The Guardian. The scene where all the prospective coast guard members are thrown in the pool and have to stay afloat or they are kicked out of the program. Click Here I am…

I’m in a Windex Commercial

A few years ago, I was late for a campus event. At this event we were advertising for campus student organizations. As an officer in one of the groups it was important that I was there to talk with possible future members. I felt bad that I wasn’t there on time so I started to…

Throw Me in the Furnace 

I’m struggling with something.  And to be honest I never thought I was.  In today’s society being a male comes with a lot of expectations.  One of which is never being afraid. I have told myself my whole life that I am invincible, but deep down I know that is not the case.  I was…

Don’t Miss the Boat 

I was at the port of Naples, Italy. My cousin and I had a boat to catch. I decided to bring my small Bible with me for the boat ride. Taking out the Bible in public is not something I often do. So I figured I would start to work on it.  While I was…

I Dare You to Sprint

On Good Friday of this year I saw something magnificent.  During the Catholic Good Friday ceremony there is something done called the veneration of the cross. Basically, everyone in the pews goes up and kisses the feet of Christ on the cross. It represents our thankfulness to the Savior of the world. Through this act…

Kangaroo’s and God 

I’m currently in line waiting to get into the Academia in Florence, Italy. Been waiting here for a while and very little movement. So why not write? I’ve been in Italy for a few weeks now. Traveling all around the motherland. Not gonna lie, when I got on the plane I was a little timid….
