Thoughts on Book: The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

I’ve never been a huge fan of self-help books. My siblings and I come from a small town, population: 3,500. We only recently opened a super-Walmart (which is still kind of small). We don’t get to see the big city often, but when we do, our favorite thing to do is go to Barnes & […]

Perspective

“Forces beyond your control can take away everything you possess except one thing, your freedom to choose how you will respond to the situation. You cannot control what happens to you in life, but you can always control what you will feel and do about what happens to you.” — Viktor E. Frankl Not taking […]

What’s in my Journal Entry?

My journal is what keeps me from going mad. I recently filled up my Eagle notebook, given to me by my little sister as a Christmas gift. Its lifespan was 1 year before I ran out of space. I miss it a lot. So, today, I decided to write about what I keep in my […]

Travel Blogging Challenge – Week  4 (Travel Misadventures) The Time I Almost Died on a Motorbike
