For a good portion of my life (about 8 years), I was heavily involved in different church ministries at my local parish. The majority of the time I was involved was spent serving with the Cross+Trainer Retreat Ministry. I firmly believe committing years to cross+training was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, not just for personal growth, but because I knew I was planting seeds and...

Yesterday, I was offered a summer internship position with the American Academy of Pediatrics! I’ll be working on the advocacy side of the organization, working closely with Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) and the Los Angeles Healthcare Provider Alliance for Children (LA-HPAC). The position is unpaid, but I get to work remotely (from home) and get compensation for any mileage I...
Carpe Diem. I think there are many ways to interpret how someone is supposed to seize the day. When I think about living my days as if it’s my last, I don’t necessarily think about doing all the crazy things I have yet to experience.

I’m also very thankful that I found...

First and foremost, think about your strengths and things that interest you. Work on refining those talents and try out different things that allow you to use them. It’s okay to try...
The Five Freedoms
theangrytherapist: To see and hear what is here instead of what should be, was, or will be. To say what one feels an thinks, instead of what one should. To feel what one feels, instead of what one ought. To ask for what one wants, instead of always waiting for permission. To take risks in one’s own behalf, instead of choosing to be only “secure” and not rocking the boat. - Virginia Satir
I found out Osama bin Laden died while I was catching up with a good friend over sushi. The first things I read when I refereshed my Facebook app were “OMG THEY GOT OSAMA”, “Oh shit”, “Finally, after 10 years!”, “HELL YA, HE’S DEAD!”etc. I told my friend and our reaction was one of confusion, since President Obama had yet to give his official...
