How A Free Watch Changed My Life

By Jakeron on July 17, 2017 / 2,404 views

By Jakeron on July 17, 2017 / 2,404 views

Three months ago I was a slob by the very definition. I acted like a slob, dressed like a slob, and felt like a slob. I was unmotivated and by all accounts it looked like I didn’t have much a future. I was the kind of guy that would work at Walmart all his life and retire with-out doing anything. Well 3 months ago to the day, I was on my computer and saw an ad for a free watch. I had nothing...

Have you ever stayed silent for a moment and observed life? What I saw was a world revolving itself, literally recycling over and over again. Human shares their life experiences of which was there before. We go through hardships, pain in different color of the paint but still was something that has been existing even before us. Yet we still cry, panic, fear where...

Moments Of Peace

The cable went out this afternoon. I could see through my bedroom window the white trucks parked next to the pole and the cable guys working on the line. I didn’t mind too much, though. With all the channels I had on my television I rarely found something I wanted to watch. I put an old DVD on for my sons, retired to my bedroom, and put on some old records for myself. I lay down on my bed while the music...

To My 12 Remaining Embryos

The day we learned there were 14 of you we instantly knew our story of hope wasn’t just for us. You have been frozen now for almost 3 years. Sometimes my infertility feels like a distant memory and other times the pain and anguish of an empty womb floods my heart like it was just yesterday. My body went through a lot just in hopes that God would give me one of you. So when the Doctor called to tell us...

I had a rough time growing up. Was bullied, parents divorced, didn't have any friends and turned to drugs; I lost control of my life and lost contact with loved ones. I was depressed for a long time and didn't have any hope for the future; I tried to kill myself but I threw up the pills and survived. After the attempt, I sort of gained a whole new perspective on life, simply revolving around...

Give Life Meaning

By Joseph J. Mazzella on July 10, 2017 / 3,469 views

By Joseph J. Mazzella on July 10, 2017 / 3,469 views

"What is the meaning of life?" This is a question that we all ask ourselves at one point or another of our existence here. It is a question that I have asked myself many times over the years. The best answer that I ever came across was written by the great psychologist, Viktor Frankl who had survived the Nazi Concentration camps in World War II. Frankl wrote that "The meaning of life is to give...

My Friends Are Robust!

Bondage or relationship means a lot in one’s life. Sometimes it’s hard to evaluate or comprehend the intensity of any sort of affiliation. Probably when we let ourselves governed or administrated by the one we consider as our precious person. But you know why we do this? Because we start considering people more reliable than our own selves. We start putting them and their opinions above ourselves...

Be Happy On Your Own

By Emery Allen on July 06, 2017 / 3,539 views

There's so much more to life than finding someone who will want you, or being sad over someone who doesn't. There's a lot of wonderful time to be spent discovering yourself without hoping someone will fall in love with you along the way, and it doesn't need to be painful or empty. You need to fill yourself up with love. Not anyone else. Become a whole being on your own. Go on adventures, sit in...

Watching Fireflies

By Joseph J. Mazzella on July 05, 2017 / 3,004 views

It was a Summer evening almost 30 years ago. I was rocking my baby boy in my arms and when he fell asleep I put him gently down into his crib for the night. My wife worn out from a long day of work was half napping and half watching TV in the living room. Not caring for the show I poured myself a glass of iced tea in the kitchen, took a lawn chair off our porch, and walked into the front yard to gaze at the...

You Want The Shirt Off Of My Back? No Problem

By JJ on July 04, 2017 / 2,140 views

S.B. and I were sunburned and dirty from traveling and being outside all day. We stood in the restaurant parking lot deciding, "do we really want to go into a public place looking like this?" Together we decided, "sure, lets go in, we are starving." That phrase changed us forever... We were walking to our seat in the crowded restaurant and we hear a shout, "HEY, I LIKE YOUR...

God Will Turn Eleven On Her Next Birthday

Except for my maternal grandmother (who’s no longer with us), ours was a non-religious family on both sides. Nonnie was a widow since I was a toddler and she came to stay on weekends. I was her first grandchild and the oldest by a number of years, so it became the mission of her “second life” to see that I got religion. I was never a totally willing communicant because I was never quite sure...

I never write these type of stories but what was my Lay Advocate and is my "angel," Sylvia Rose Viarrial has taught me many things. One major thing I will carry on hoping it will give hope to another survivor of Domestic Violence and Sexual assault. When I met Sylvia Rose Viarrial, I had just got my daughter taken away and given to her abusive father, not because of any neglect or abuse on...

I'm at the Spokane airport waiting for a flight to Portland. I was speaking at a conference. This is one of the few times I've traveled without kids in the past few years, and so I'm taking it in. But I can't help but notice this couple. I've watched them for awhile. I hope they don't mind me posting this, but these two deserve to be noticed because they are...

I was preparing to shave my fifty year old face this morning when I noticed something: my wrinkles no longer disappear when I relax my face. They have become permanent etchings in my skin. I know too that the television and internet are full of advertisements for creams, treatments, and botox to ease and lessen these permanent wrinkles but as I looked at mine in the mirror I decided that it would be far better...

I Hope This Helps Someone

Back about 20 months ago I started college and just struggled with everything, classes, friends, girls... I quickly became depressed, angry at myself for not being about to do better in school, in addition to lack of friends due to poor social and communication skills. This went on for months, until my 19th birthday. My parents sent me a cake, it was a great cake, but I remember having this large...

The way alcohol is marketed they make it seam that as long as you are not sleeping on a cardboard box on a rainy sidewalk, you don't have a problem, but drinking, at least like the way I did, had so many consequences it is truly astounding to see, now that I have space from my drinking days. I got sober 416 days ago and my life has completely turned around in so many ways it is kind of crazy. I...

One Big Pond As a child you think that nothing bad could ever happen to you. Every child growing up believes they are living in a perfect little glass house that could never shatter. In my case, my perfect little glass house shattered and I was left picking up all the pieces. A child does not ever think to themselves that their parents are going to split up, or that one of them is going to move to a...
