But did you die?

Well, ALMOST. I know I said I wanted to format my blog differently and I will continue to add posts like my previous one, but I realized I still need "me" in this blog. That's the whole reason I wanted t blog. To get the ME in my head out. I will continue to add…

Gratitude. Make it your Attitude.

Gratitude. How do you define it? According to Merriam-Webster, the definition of gratitude is : "The state of being grateful." While I conducted my own method of "research" about the topic, I came up with my own definition.  I'll share that with you later, but lets dive into what I found about gratitude. *********** SOUL.…

a new approach.

Yeah I know, Its been a while. While I'd like to say that there was something amazing going on during my little hiatus on this blog ( if you can even consider it one), there wasn't. I don't know why I stopped, but I know when I did, I kind of got lost too. You…

it shouldn’t take a funeral.

  Life had just given me a whirlwind experience and a lesson to be learned. My Uncle "Curly" had passed away on July 4th. He had a rare auto immune disease scleroderma. I remember when he was in the hospital a couple of months earlier I had paid him a visit. The moment I saw him,…

Life isn’t about yourself.

I normally post something about my Dad on Father's Day, but this time I didn't. I had the thought to share something, but I just didn't know what I wanted to say. My dad has been gone for 16 years. That's literally half  of my life now. I've only known my dad for half of my…

your soul is showing.

I just recently celebrated my birthday. I also forgot how old I was turning. 32? 33? 40? 32. I don't know what happened to my memory once I turned 30. It's like I just stopped caring how old I was and sadly accepted the fact that I was slowly on my way to becoming an…

I see you.

Perspective. Such a heavy word with so much energy. Let's look at the definition of it. According to Google search , let's use the second definition. perspective [per-spek-tiv] a particular attitude toward or way of regarding something; a point of view. I really love that. An attitude toward something. A point of view. The more…

All the YES.

It's obviously been a while since I did my last post. I really have no other excuse as to why I didn't post more than the fact I got lazy. I was on my high (refer to my last post) and then I went back down. And here I am. Not necessarily on  a full…

My name is Mel. And I’m an addict.

I love getting inspired. I love it so much. I crave it. I love hearing stories, or seeing things that make my heart beat a bit faster. The rush of endorphins that flood your heart and soul is similar to when you take ecstasy. (I never claimed to be a saint.) I never noticed how…
