Red-Y


Not everything in life revolves around meeting another person to be with. Yes, it’s great to have someone adore you, but it’s more important to find the things in yourself that make you special and adorable. Before you can find who’s right for you, you have to become the person you’re meant to be.

Abstracts


Life really all comes down to…. Who do you want to be in the world? Not…what do you want to do, not what do you want to achieve, but who do you want to be? What is the kind of person when they read your eulogy? What do you want the words to be said about the kind of person you have been in the world? Do you know the answer to that question? Because in the end how your love affects people, the love you put out into the world is really what matters.

The Perfect Combination


The older you get,

the more you realize that

it isn’t about the material things,

or pride,

or ego.

it’s about our hearts and who they

beat for.

A Midi Moment


Communication… such an easy word to say right?... but such a difficult word to incorporate in our daily lifestyles. O how important it is to have a strong line of communication in any relationship you have whether it be your father, mother, sister, brother, girlfriend, boyfriend, fiancĂ©, husband, wife and the list goes on and on. These are all relationships that require some line of communication. Now, I’m not talking about a simple hey… hello… but actually getting down to the nitty gritty how do you really feel? See, I think where we go wrong is we fail to communicate our truest feelings to the people that have hurt us, we allow time, circumstances, pride and even our attitudes get in the way. Thus propelling us into a resentful and angry state of mind kind of somewhere along the lines of “I told you I don’t want to talk about this anymore” boy aren’t we all guilty of saying those words. How you communicate determines your relationship. If you’re vague, nonchalant, untrustworthy, and angry well you can kind of expect for your relationship to be a mirror image of that, weathered, damaged and broken beyond repair. You see communication is a two way street and if those lines are not open how can you truly expect for that relationship to grow? I mean stop and really think about it…. your brain sends a signal to your stomach when you are hungry right? (communication) and what do you? You get something to eat to satisfy your hunger. Life and relationship is no different but we as humans tend to get it all confused when it really is just that simple. Communicate how you REALLY feel people, because your relationships will never grow if you keep ignoring your pain.

All Laced Up


The more you like yourself, flaws and all the less you want to become like anyone else, which makes you unique.

Someone in the world awaits you, whether it’s in the middle of the desert or in some great city. When two such people encounter each other, and their eyes meet, the past and the future become unimportant. There is only that moment, and the incredible certainty that everything under the sun has been written by one hand only. It is the hand that evokes love, and creates a soul mate for every person in the world. Without such love, one’s dreams would have no meaning.

Seeing Stars

I have always been a huge fan of stars and as corny as it may sound my name may have a little something to do with that “STAR-ema”. However, I remember as a child asking my mom to buy me those little glow in the dark stars that you stick to your bedroom ceiling wall. At the time, I thought they were just the coolest things in the world and it was only fitting for me “Star” to have a “star” designed room. As I grew older I never lost my interest in stars. Those mystical, massive, fiery balls of plasma held together by gravity. It’s like I became engulfed with the idea of star everything, and unlike my childhood it wasn’t just because my name began with the word. It was something about the stars that was so amazing to me, inspiring, yet mysterious. Now that I am a lot older I have come to realize that the stars are one of God’s greatest creations. I mean think about it the Sun is the largest star in the entire universe. It illuminates the world we live in, all 6 billion people, without it what would all of humanity do? Digging a little deeper I began to think about life….. and how God sends us our own little stars. The people who illuminate our lives, brighten our days, make us reach for more, encourage our dreams and make us become better people. I mean just think about it, it’s because of those little stars in your life, you have become the person you are right now. Whether it’s your best friend, soul mate, teammate, mother, father etc. God specifically placed them exactly where he wanted them to be, so you can shine a little brighter. So appreciate the stars God gives you because life is short.

Gray Days

Time is never truly wasted. The point of life is to learn. Even if you were stuck in a bad relationship or a bad job for a long, long time it was the exact amount of time that was needed for the lesson to be learned. If when we were born, we received a guide to our lives that told us how long it would take to learn lessons about self-worth, changing people, and love it would make things a lot easier, but it would be like a crossword book with all the words already circled. There just wouldn’t be any point.
