This blog compiles all things I find inspiring to my heart, my soul, my dreams. I also do the occasional personal blog, and recipe posts. I am a wife to an amazing Marine, a mom to three beautiful children, and a woman in all ways. =) I am currently living a tranquil life in Oahu with my little family. I will be 32 this year. We are never too "old" to dream...

Good morning!

Good morning!

Forget happiness, search for meaning. Dr. Antony Kidman

You have to let go of your past at some point. These scars you hold are only skin deep, they do not connect to your heart or your soul. These scars do not define you; you define them. They do not represent death and destruction like you think, they represent life, the life you chose to want to live… so… make it worth it. Stephanie Hudson, The Two Kings

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul. William Ernest Henry, Invictus

This is the poem that inspired the name for the Invictus Games.  the Invictus Games was created specifically for the Wounded Military Warriors to show the world that they may be physically broken, but their spirit isn’t.  They are the REAL sports heroes, in my humble opinion.
