Being Real and You’re Worth it

Being Real and You’re Worth it

Life is a journey. One that I feel like I’ve only recently started embracing. Not too long ago, I wasn’t able to see a future for myself. I didn’t believe in myself at all. I hated myself. I used to sob about how much I hated myself, lol. My mindsets were completely built of lies, sown into my life through insecurities, the world, constant comparison and a very broken past.
But over the course of time, God slowly kept peeling back the layers of lies and pain in my life. I started moving forwards. I started breaking out of my shell. I did things I’ve never done before. I didn’t feel great doing it. I didn’t think I looked cool doing it either. But I did it!
In a world where we often hear truth, we still refuse to believe it. It just took me awhile to start believing truth. You may have to walk through a lot of pain before your heart begins to believe again. And you will definitely still feel pain. You will still struggle. You will still feel like hope is a l…

Top Ten Tuesday: Fav Dads in Literature

Top Ten Tuesday: Fav Dads in Literature

Top Ten Tuesdayis a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

In honor of upcoming Father's Day, here are some interesting and favorite dads of mine from fiction!

Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys

One Dad is a lawyer, the other is a PI and former police detective. But both Dads are absolutely supportive of their kids. They encourage them in their sleuthing skills and are always on call to give them advice or help.
Emma

Okay, so yes this Dad is a bit overprotective, silly and emotional. He spends most of his time worrying about eating eggs or if people will get colds without wearing a shawl. But it's pretty obvious that Dad loves Emma a lot with how absolutely devoted she is to him. And he never pressures her into any kind of marriage!
Pride and Prejudice

Another Dad that isn't quite perfect. I mean Dad didn't exactly marry the smartest lady on the block and he basically let his willful teenage daughter go on a sketchy vacation that led basically to…

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Review – A Swashbuckler Tale of Adventure and Family

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Review –  A Swashbuckler Tale of Adventure and Family

14 years ago, Disney took a big risk with a genre that had ceased to be popular for many years: pirates. Their gamble paid off with Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, a box office hit that shocked critics, made lead actor Johnny Depp the top dog for highest paid actors, and set off a host of pirate sequels – of which Dead Men Tell No Tales is the fifth installment.
The newest film starts out with a young Henry Turner, son of Will and Elizabeth, seeking a mysterious Trident that can control the seas and hopefully will free his father. He’s also searching for Captain Jack Sparrow, who he believes will help him find it. Through a series of deadly events, Henry ends up stumbling onto Jack, still his habitual bumbling drunk pirate self, and a young woman, Carina, who’s searching for the Trident herself to discover the identity of her father and is the only person who…

5 Books From Multiple Genre That I've Recently Added To My TBR List



It's been awhile since I've done a Top Ten Tuesdayby the Broke and the Bookish! Partly because I haven't been reading as much as I should/could. But that doesn't mean there aren't books I'm interested in reading, hehe. Because I definitely have a loooot of books I want to read!!
#Contemporary Romance
#1True to Youby Becky Wade
Why This Book: Read a lovely review by RissiWrites. The story sounds delightful with a Navy SEAL hero and an introverted genealogist. Plus, its Becky Wade, people. She’s fabulous.
#Young Adult
#2I Believe in a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo
Why This Book: This book popped up on the fabulous Dramabeans K-drama blog and immediately I was intrigued. A book about a Korean-American girl using K-drama tropes to find true love? Sounds way too cute!
#3For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund 
Why This Book: This book has come on and off my radar for a little while but I r…
