Stand up

Your okay

You will be fine

This doesn't break you

This makes you

The way out

The way that needs to be taken

To keep on going

To survive

Beginning of the end

Or at least a new chapter

Stay strong

Stand your ground

Say what you have to say

Walk away

Its almost over

Just do it

Be brave

Stay strong

Out of control stuck

Can't breathe

Can't think

Not strong enough


Mature enough

To figure it all out

To stand up

Against the ones loved

Emotional strained



I just want to prove love is there

For them

Can't seem to do it right

Falling faster and faster to breaking

Wanting to be out

Wanting in

Wanting them to know that its not abandonment

It's a "break"

Its growing



Family is forever

True and Real friends are forever

Never wanting to hurt anyone

But all it seems is thats what's happening

One day

It will just be

The next chapter

For Everyone

And Anyone

Everyone will have each other

Some may be alone

One in particular

All will move on

All should get figured out


Can't hold back from reaching the next chapter of me

It's time to figure this shit out

Can't stay stuck

Can't stay feeling this way

So as I am now a few days into this photo/writing challenge, I must say I am having fun with it. It has really brought back my love for photography. Playing around and taking some "random" shots has been so much fun. And honestly (not to toot my own horn or anything) I have gotten some amazing pictures. I have impressed myself a little bit. I have some that really just make me flat out smile and giddy at how awesome they are. I'm really excited to continue, and see where it takes me. The writing aspect, well you know I have been on a writing kick lately anyways so that is just what it is. I do it everyday already, so yeah. 
If you want to check out the photos, all of them go up here (the full days worth, crappy ones and all) http://simplylifeasithappens.shutterfly.com/
Check it out if you want. Comment if you want.

Sunshine, a Smile, a Cup of Coffee.
Ahh yes the little things in life.

The things that bring the smiles to a face.
The things that make someone giggle and laugh.

Yeah those are the important things.
The things that we need to remember.

Remember the little things people care about.
Strive and live for the little things.

They are the things that keep us going, surviving, living.
The things that make our days a lighter brighter.

Not everything has to be huge, or extravagant .
But when you find delight in something, take it to heart.
Let it mean something.

The joy experienced is important.
Keeps us going, alive, real.

Feel it.
Live it.
Find the moments.
The things.

It's only sweet when we allow it.

I'm doing it

You handed me a challenge

"Pick up your camera and shoot. 100 a day. No deleting until 100 has been taken. Capture a moment. Capture the world you see. The world you see with your photographers eye. Part two... write something everyday. Just write."

Yup this shall be interesting, enjoyable, yet a challenge.

Ready Set Go

Press on. Go for it.
I love this. I honestly think it is one of my best photos ever. Could be better, but yeah I like it.

Thought/idea I got today.

What if I started doing my writing (the writing I do on paper) in crayon?
How cool would that be?
I think it would add something, and make it even smidge more me.
Ahh just a though, who knows. I will try it out and see how it goes, or use it on certain things, or yeah.

Creativity... sometimes it works in my world sometimes not.
We shall see :)

Starts with a flame

A flame of:


Something so small, can start something huge.
Change a persons life.
Change the way we see someone or something.

It has potential to start something amazing.
Or something disastrous.

When those flames in your heart or mind start to burn.

If its positive...
Embrace it
Live it
Let a wildfire start in you. 

If its negative...
Find a way to blow it out
Find the thing that over rides it

We are destined for great things. 
God has a purpose for each and everyone of us.
We need to find and embrace the things that God places in our lives. 
Cause you never know when you will find a flame that sets your life on fire.

  Open up

Tell all

Find that person

Give them your life

Your heart

Your soul

Never shut them out

  Be cautious though

Sometimes someone isn't always in a place themselves to have you bare all

Sometimes reaching for someone will hurt

Reaching for the wrong person

Can hurt you

And that person.

   Never give up on yourself

Or others

This thing called life

Is a roller coaster

Its a ride

Take it

As is

Embrace the good

Push through the hard

   It never stays the same

Unless you choose to keep it the same.

Miraculous is what I would call it.

This life I live. 

It has its ups and downs.

It has its love hate relationships.

It has people I can't live without.

It has people I could do without.

Its something new everyday

But so much the same week by week.

Never can I express how much a tid bit of information can change a person

Words spoken, can slowly kill a person

Or make them stronger

Actions and decisions made

May or may not change you forever. 

But it adds impact.

It makes it a part of you.

Life is worth living. 

Bitter-sweet as it is.

You can't enjoy the good without the bad.

Perspective is everything.

Make choices

Make decisions

Love the people you love 

Say it, even if they don't believe it

Cause maybe someday they will.

To much to give up

Even if you have nothing

You mean something to someone.

No matter how your life is or looks like

No matter what their life is or looks like

Sometimes we need to let people find themselves before they can truly show how much others mean to them.

Sometimes life discovery for one person comes during a storm for another

That doesn't change how they feel

Things may not look neat or put together

Or go your way

Or give you a break

But live through the storm

Daylight will come

All will be right

Oh my gosh I hate being sick.
I cant even tell you the last time I felt this miserable.

I do have to say though other then my headaches that I get, I don't get sick often anymore.
Cause growing up, I was sick all the time. Between my skin, and immune system sucking... I never felt good.

So thankfully I am pretty much over that. My skin is halfway decent most of the time now too. When and if I get sick, it may take me down, but you know I would rather be sick for a couple days every once and while, rather then most of my days.

Its a great song/message.

Facing it all

The life I live

It's honesty that counts

It's love that makes it all real

Face it

I can't always be right
Nor always wrong

A truth that has no words

Can't explain it

How do I say it

A mistake made in the past

Reliving itself

I live in that choice

God forgave me once
Will he again

Of course

Will you?

It was stupid

It is not a way to cope


But real

Tomorrow is a new day

A moment of hurt

Won't bring me down forever

Cause remember

Make It or Break It

Some days I feel like school can't come fast enough. But moments where it seems to be coming to fast...

I have things that I want to just avoid.
I can't avoid that stuff though.
It will all just bit me in the butt later on.
I want to run. Want to hide.

Conversations that need to take place,
Conversations that scares the heck out of me.
I don't want to be made out to be the bad guy.
Or made out to be selfish.

Communication is one thing I'm working on.
Getting better at?
But I don't seem strong enough to always do it right.
Or at all.

Decisions to be made.
I don't want to be made out selfish.
I don't want to do it for the wrong reasons.

There are things right now that if the just worked themselves out without me,
I would be content.
But they aren't going to work themselves out.
I may just have to be the one to make the break through.
I may be the one to make things click.
The things may not be my problems.
But if I go in with a whole lot of Christ in me.
And a whole lot of knowing I can do it.
In the big picture.
I may help save it.

How and why does it seem I have to be the one to save this.
How am I strong enough?
Am I really strong enough, got it figured out enough?
Is this God's plan and purpose for my life right now.
Where will this lead me to?

All I want is God's plan/will for my life.
But I am such a stubborn selfish sinner,
Who is so scared to think what the people think.
I don't want to hurt anyone.
I would rather want to take the hurt upon myself, just stirve and be stretched until I am about to break
Before I hurt anyone else.

Selfish much?
Prideful much?
Stubborn enough?

So here is my surrender to God.

I want to be what I have to be.
I need to be filled with Christ.
I need to figure it out.
Find the words. 
Trust enough.
Be brave.
Live obediently.
Do what I have to do.
Strive forth.
Step out.
Be a strong.

All I want is things to be fixed.
And it seems to be that I am going to be the one to kick start it.
I can't fix the things of the people around me.
But I can/need to love them enough to be truthful.
To get the communication going.
No matter how much it scares me.

God's got me


Alright here I am writing this, becuase although I have been on a writing kick, I want to know what some of you would like to see me write. I want to be challenged, challenged in what I know, how I can write, and so on. So if there is something that you have bring it, and I will try my best at working with it.

I will continue to write whatever pops into my head. But yeah.
