Never Imagined Blogging

When I think back on my life I wonder, how did this blogging thing come about? It takes confidence in writing something and sharing it with people. When did I get so confident? I can't really answer that and I still don't think I have the confidence I need to share all the things I … Continue reading Never Imagined Blogging

Dreams

Dreams. What do they really mean? Are they things that we think about when we are awake? Are they based on our hopes and dreams in life? Or are they complete random thoughts just made from the imaginative brains we have? Do they really mean anything at all? I am a person that has crazy … Continue reading Dreams

Dear Joe Rogan

For the last 5 years or so it has been on my list to go see Joe Rogan. I’ve listened to many of his pod cast, although I’m not considered a true fan because it’s not that often that I tune in. But none the less, I know Joe to be a very intelligent person … Continue reading Dear Joe Rogan

Day 2 of ATC

Day 2 of the race started much earlier than day 1. It also started with a little surprise. I woke up, got dressed in my tent, got things organized in my bag and then got up. Once I was up and got my teeth brushed, I saw a familiar person walking up. I finally realized … Continue reading Day 2 of ATC

My Very First Speech

So, those of you following this blog should by now know that I have a goal to become something much larger than I currently am. Most of you probably don't know how shy and scared I am when it comes to talking to large crowds though. With a new coordinator at our Jr. High that … Continue reading My Very First Speech

ATC Day 1 of the Race

Here's where the real fun part of the story begins. The actual race. We all lined up at the starting point and my team kinda stayed to the side and the back. Whitney (the leader of our team and the only one that had done this before) told us people take it a little crazy … Continue reading ATC Day 1 of the Race

The Ark Encounter

So this summer I had some stuff pop up that wasn't so very expected. I had originally hoped to go to Colorado and Arkansas to camp but Sweeny sports kept me in town the whole month of June and I had a few procedures that kept me Texas bound. My mom came to Texas to … Continue reading The Ark Encounter

Other people will always doubt you, so it’s up to you to believe in yourself!

I can remember in the first few days in rehab some of my doubtful thoughts. I told my mom, "I'm not sure what's gonna happen but this can't be it because I'm not a person meant for a wheelchair". This was my thought process because I was an athlete, I was active, and I loved … Continue reading Other people will always doubt you, so it’s up to you to believe in yourself!

What is Unconditional Love?

It was years ago when I went through that time in life that many girls go through. I had baby-fever for a few reasons but I knew I was in no way ready to have a baby. I was only 20, I wasn't married, still had a long way to go to finish college, and … Continue reading What is Unconditional Love?

First Solo Camping Trip

Last summer I was single for the first time in a very long time. With that experience I had moments of feeling alone and lost. It made me sit back and think. What do I want out of life? What is that I like to do? I like traveling and experiencing new things. How can … Continue reading First Solo Camping Trip
