As a stay-at-home mom of three boys, I often have a hard time feeling like I am capable of having a meaningful impact outside of my family. So today I finally did something I knew I COULD do. I have taken my kids out for walks in the stroller many times, and the trash on the sidewalk and streets always catches my attention. This afternoon I did something about it. I tied a...

By F Scott Fitzgerald on October 04, 2018 / 1,872 views

"For what it's worth... it's never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There's no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet...

This is Chester. When I was in Afghanistan I got a care package from one of those 'Adopt a Soldier' programs that lets families send care packages to service men and women who are deployed overseas. Anyway, I got this care package, and it came with the usual stuff: Baby wipes, crackers, peanut butter, the Dad threw in a pack of cigarettes, and there was some jerky. But there was also a...

By Furqan on September 26, 2018 / 1,939 views

By Furqan on September 26, 2018 / 1,939 views

Here's the story of my growth over the past year. If anyone is inspired by this, that's wonderful. I'd been stuck as this incredibly insecure, under-confident, fat sack and just scared individual for years and years and years. Since childhood I'd been stuck like this, and I'd just resigned to a life where I'd be afraid of everything and be this 'introvert' or...

There was a man who had four sons. He wanted his sons to learn to not judge things too quickly. So he sent them each on a quest, in turn, to go and look at a pear tree that was a great distance away. The first son went in the winter, the second in the spring, the third in summer, and the youngest son in the fall. When they had all gone and come back, he called them together to describe...

Eyes closed, she felt the cool breeze on her face as the car swept past the green pastures. The breeze felt refreshingly new and gave her a sense of newly defined freedom and happiness. The breeze suddenly came to a halt with the car stopping due to a bit of traffic created by the grazing of some cute lambs. Climbing out of the car in excitement, she realized she was in a new world, where her only companion...

During a conversation between an old lady and I today morning, I saw a moving car followed by many young gentlemen by foot selling insecticides. Dust on their feet, sweats, and short runs showed me how tired and far they have walked. In spite of all this, they kept doing the marketing without showing any sign of regret or giving up. Their unchanged faces and some with smiles even when people refuse to respond...

I was eleven years old standing outside in just my underwear while I watched the house that I grew up in rapidly burn to the ground. A few minutes earlier I had been sound asleep in my nice, warm bed when a scream woke me up. My Nana's bedroom was just next to mine and my brother's. A fire had broken out there and awakened her. Hearing her my older brother had sprung into action. While I stumbled...

He's not comfortable with my extremely long texts. Or the pictures. I knew he wouldn't be when I sent them but I did it anyways. You uncomfortable yet? I sound...

I was outside eating a cookie and saw about 5 ants just roaming around on top of the steps. I noticed there was only one ant that wasn't holding anything like the other 4 were holding dorito bits or something and the ant seemed sad. It wasn't even going at the same pace as the other ants. So I put a cookie crumb next to him and he picked it up and started running as fast as the other ants and I think I...

I'm going to give you $100. I want you give away $100 of popcorn to people who come up." Apparently the people that they gave the...

As I am on my way going to see my landlady last Saturday, I saw a beautiful garden with many well grown yam plants. The broad surfaces of the leaves of the yam plants and the heights of the yam shoots climbed and spread over tall trees attracted me to look at the plants without making any movement. While picturing the plants, this question came through my mind, "why yam leaves which were very common to me...
