You Matter…More Than You Know!

I usually try to start off these posts with some sort of witty opening (at least what I would consider to be witty). But this time I just have to say it! YOU MATTER!! Like Soooo much! The reason I say that is because I just realized that about myself. I’m not even talking about…

I Eat Too Fast!

No really, I do. I eat faster than grown men who have a 100+pounds on me! I easily sat down to Thanksgiving dinner this year and stood up five minutes later to make my way back to the kitchen for seconds. If you were to survey the room you would see that everyone else had…

Give it Away!

Current Mood: I’ve read many quotes that sum up the concept: “Give away what you want!” For instance, if you want love in your life, be loving toward others. If you want money, give it away to others and so forth. In the pursuit of my dream, I have noticed just how much I have…

Envy? Me?

So this is a very difficult post for me to write. My whole blog is about encouraging others (myself included) to be your best self and to have faith and yada yada yada! Welp! Let me say that hey I am oh so very human and the topic of the day is the ickiness of…

A Time to Heal

If you’re anything like me you think that, for the most part, you are indestructible! I mean we all have dreamed of being a superhero and walking through fire without being burned or getting hit by a car leaving the car with a huge dent in it and continuing across the street brushing yourself off…

Gratitude is All About Attitude

          So, I was recently convicted…not of a crime punishable by the laws of this country but of what I would consider as more of a “spiritual crime.” I heard a sermon that “Read me my rights” and rightfully so. The “crime” I committed was: Being found unlawfully egocentric and lacking…

Sometimes You Just Gotta…DANCE!!!

You have heard Donnie McClurkin say, “When you’ve done all you can…just Stand.” Well I say…just DANCE!” There must be joy on the journey!

Distractions…Distractions…DISTRACTIONS!!!

Imagine This: It was a dark and stormy night. Christopher, 6’2”, ruggedly handsome with skin like bronze rushes in out of the rain. He steps across the threshold relieved to feel the warmth of the fireplace. He takes a deep breath and smiles, happy to be home. As he reaches to hang up his coat he…

50/50 The Lottery of Life

“Nothing makes you more vulnerable than your refusal to be honest with yourself about what you want.” –Charly Emery It’s nothing like a good quote to sum up hundreds of pages of thoughts into one sentence! Admitting to myself that my dream is to encourage the world through my music (this I vowed to do…

What’s Your WHY?

Know Your Why (Comedian Michael Jr.) (Click to View) This clip is a perfect example. Maybe so good of an example that I may not even have to write anything. On the other hand, maybe I will… Arriving at my “Why” was a different experience for me. My motivation was not derived from a life-threatening occurrence…

The Introduction: Hello My Name is Audra!

  Have you ever had that feeling that “Yes, I know I am meant to do great things…but I’m terrified out of my mind to do them?!” Or maybe you say, “After the kids are in middle school I will finally start trying to lose this baby weight,” or “I will learn to cook after…
