One Life To Live

Discover the beauty of life

New Chapter

If something doesn’t last as long as you thought, don’t get down on yourself. You worked hard, you were doing your best, and sometimes it ends up being temporary.

I’ve learned this recently and even though I didn’t expect things to happen the way that they did, it was a stepping stone to the next chapter of my life. 

Be proud of yourself and don’t let anyone tell you you’re a failure or you’re not good enough. If that’s the case, they don’t deserve to be a part of your life. Be strong enough to walk away with your pride, don’t let them take it from you! 

Biggest Inspiration

What inspires you to write? Is it the outdoors, a friendly conversation, a break-up, or a paradise vacation that you went on. 

Let’s hear your stories of what inspires you to take the pen and put it to the paper! 

My personal inspiration usually comes when I’m going for walks (alone) or going to a local park and sitting on the swings. Being at peace with nature usually triggers a good poem or two! 


Has anyone had any experience with the self-publishing process? If so, I’d love to hear about it!

I’ve contemplated for a long time and I think that’s what I’ll end up doing when I finally put my book together. I will mostly likely write children’s books, short stories, and poetry-so only short forms of writing. 

Thanks in advance for your tips, suggestions, and stories 🙂

Never Good Enough

Trying to live up to someone else’s standards is probably one of the most unfair things you’ll ever do. It’s not worth it. If people can’t accept you for who you are, they don’t belong in your life.

Why should you change yourself to be who THEY want you to be. You are your own person, that’s how it should be. You may make bad decisions, but that’s a part of life. Live and learn from your own mistakes-don’t let someone else tell you what’s right and wrong. It’s different for everybody. 

Be who you are!!! Never change! 

Most Memorable Year

Post your most memorable year in the comments below💙 If you’d like to share the story to go along with it, I’d love to hear why 🙂 

Ready, set, go!!! Have fun! 

Mine would be between 3 years: 2004, 2008, and 2013. 2004 was when I met my soulmate, 2008 was when he asked me out, and 2013 was when he asked me to marry him 🙂 

Forever Love

So many years later, our love is still as strong as ever. What’s our secret…

It’s meant to be. He is my person. He is my other half. Born to different mothers but our souls were meant to come together for life. It’s destiny, it’s fate. It’s so hard to explain to others. 

Our love is one of a kind, a real-life fairytale. We speak the same words, we think the same things. It’s incredible. 

He is my forever love💙

Spring in the Middle of Winter

This weather has been absolutely beautiful. Sun beaming on my face, fresh warm breeze through my hair, and not a cloud in sight…couldn’t ask for anything better.

The simple things in life are what make me happy. Take the time and look up at the sky. Appreciate every sound, every sight, every moment, every breath.
