Guilt is a major emotion that can throw one off balance. One moment, you are okay, the next, you feel so bad. Sometimes guilt comes with feelings of unworthiness and self-punishment.

I am not a fan of traveling for long hours but there’s one thing that certainly makes it worse for me and that is when I have lots of luggage. I must confess I tend to over pack because in my head I get this “what if I need this?” However having to carry more […]
Faith and fear is something that goes hand in hand. It’s either you are living in faith or you are living in fear.

Yesterday, I woke up with a heavy heart. I was thinking about a lot of things, including past mistakes and decisions I have to make. I just felt like running away from all that bothered me but that of course wasn’t possible.
