God, Can You Hear Me Now?

After binge watching This is Us, I sat in my car and cried. Though the episodes had plenty of tear jerker moments, it wasn't the reason for my tears. I began crying because I simply became tired. 

Fifteen days into the new year and already I was falling apart. I'm uncertain about how I really feel about my new job, finances are not in the greatest shape, my cat's illness flared up, and I'm not quite sure what I'm doing with my life.

True Life: I'm a Hoarder

In my last post, I briefly mentioned that I'm a recovering hoarder. Transitioning to minimalism forced me to become honest with myself. The truth was I had a bad habit of collecting and keeping things just for the sake of it.

5 Reasons Why I Became a Minimalist

For those who follow me on IG (@ingoodfaithxo), you probably noticed that a lot of my posts have focused on my transition to minimalism.

Just A Little Prayer

September 1st, 2016:

I was sitting in my car bright and early at work with an hour to spare. Traffic is a nightmare if I leave later than 6:30am. And with school conveniently back in session, I was starting to feel like I need to leave earlier. But that would require me to wake up earlier than I already do for a job that I now strongly dislike.

Somewhere Between Suicide and the Hamptons

There’s never really an in-between with me when it comes to my emotions. I can go for 0-100 real quick at any given moment without warning. You would think that by being on medication my moods would somehow level themselves out. But they don’t. I’ll have periods of stability then I’m back to being on the “crazy” train.

Bad Christian: Your Journey Ain't Like Mine

I don’t follow religion but when asked, I always say I’m Catholic because technically, I am. However, I wasn’t completely raised in a Catholic household or any denomination for that matter despite my family’s religious background. But I was aware. Aware of God, the Bible, you know the basics. I lived in a house with two (non-denominational) reverends growing up, so not being aware of those aspects was completely out the question. However, God, religion and the likes were never forced upon me. But I never questioned it until high school.
