Out of the darkness

I used to live in the darkness before
a darkness of lies
a darkness of untrust
in my inner soul.

It kept me in a bubble
for as long as I can remember.
Now I have come to realize
with the new
presence of god in me
that with each prayer
I pray to him
he will listen and change
my heart forever.

How to create a 80's leopard nail art

To begin with......

If you are really into manicure art and you want to try something totally different then this one is for you I assure you your nails will look fantastic in this bright purple, teal and totally 80's leopard nail art.

What you will need for this tutorial

1) a nail polish with the name of color club Pucci-licious which is purple.
2) Milani fresh neon teal a hot pink color
3) OPI DC cherry blossom
4) A Knoad plate m57 and Konad special polish in black - Konad is such an easy thing to use when creating your nail art and it is also consistent.
You add in the purple then the color green.
You add in the purple then the color green.

How to start......

You don't have to use the Konad for this nail art if you don't feel like it that is what you can use and in my opinion is much more easier are a less expensive nail art pen the ones you can buy at a drugstore or at Wal-Mart for a lower price or either you can choose to use a black nail polish and you will also need a toothpick in order to shape the leopard circles.
Another fact is when creating this 80's nail art look some nails are only purple and some are teal so each nail is set on its own color which looks really awesome it may also seem kind of random I don't know if it does but that is how it appears to me in appearance so hope you can figure it out somehow someway. Then after that you add in the pink dotted spots by using a dotted tool so you can add some color to the leopard art the rest is then coated with a Seche Vite then on the side I recommend you to use a perfect formula gel coat that is lieu for the base coat since it is a great treatment for your nails.:)

How to make a DIY pencil cup!

Making your own DIY pencil cup can be creative and economical at the same time because that way you wont have to be worrying about buying one and it can also be good for the environment since you can use an old can to turn it into a useful new object. So have fun making it!
Materials that you will need for this project:
  • 28 ounce can it has to be clean and empty
  • A 12 by 18 inch sheet of construction paper ( of any color)
  • Some scissors
  • A short white paper
  • some colored markers
  • Glue stick
  • Personal photos
  • A colorful plastic or craft tape
First what you have to do is take off the label that was from the can then after that you get the label that you took off from the can in order to sketch the edges of the label in the construction paper. Then you take the sketched rectangle and begin to cut it out of the construction paper just make sure that you leave a bit of extra in the end so that way you can also use it as a leftover for when you wrap the paper around the can to cover the can.
Take a pencil and draw a little rectangle on the white paper after that cut out the rectangle. Then here comes the fun part which is my favorite one just feel free to express yourself you can write a poem, a funny anecdote, or it can also either be your name or the name of the person that you are planning to give it to you can write all of those things inside the small rectangle that you created. One tip to know- is to make sure that the small rectangle is glued in the center of the rectangle that you made in the beginning.
Now if you want to add in any personal pictures that you may have into your pencil cup what I recommend for you to do is to first choose the pictures that you think would be best for the pencil cup holder choose the ones that you like the most. Then cut out the faces and any other images that you might want to include on the pencil holder just remember that if you are making this for you to have fun and just use your imagination create it as how you want it to look like. But if you are doing this as a gift for someone then include pictures that remind you of that person in general for example it can be of the great times that you have had together or any funny moments that make you both laugh out loud. To decorate the pictures you can draw flowers, random patterns, stems and leaves any way you like anywhere around the pictures inside the rectangle with a marker.
Then you take the rectangular shaped construction paper the one that is decorated you wrap it around the can make sure to glue the ends of the paper in the can with the glue stick so it can stick real good into the can. After that you grab a colorful plastic or a craft tape in order to hide the rims that are in the can as a reminder make sure that you fold the edges of the tape from the inside or under the can in order for you not to see the edges of the can.
Here comes the final step for this DIY project once you are done giving the final touches to your pencil cup now you can put all of the pencils, pens, or markers that you want and free yourself from any clutter of pens that you had in the past.

My sparkle dance

When Friday comes 
you know it's time 
to hit the lights 
were on the dance floor. 

Moving to the beat 
of love songs in the air. 

It's mi fantasia 
every-time I let my 
inner sparkle shine 
when I dance with you 
it feels like 
spring break to me.

A prayer for everyone to renew mind, body and soul

Lord, I come before you today in need of your healing hand. 
In you all things are possible. Hold my heart within yours, and 
renew my mind, body, and soul. I am lost, but I am singing. 
You gave us life, and you also gave us infinite joy. 

Give me the strength to move forward on the path 
you have laid out for me. Guide me towards better 
health and give me the wisdom to identify 
those around me to help me get better.

In your name I pray  AMEN:)

Why do people get angry so much?

Are you one of those people that has ever wondered why people get angry a lot? well almost everyone in this world gets angry at one point or another in life anger is part of our emotions also just like when someone feels love, hope, anxiety, sadness, and fear. Anger has two sides a positive side and a negative side firstly positive anger is when it boosts your determination in overcoming challenges and problems on the other hand negative anger is when the person lives it faster, more times, and more intense than others.

When otherwise provoked the angry person may start physical and verbal attacks when this happens it usually means that anger controls them and the most appropriate way is when the person controls the anger this is also usually referred to as problem anger and this type of anger is somewhat dangerous. For example even with smaller issues there can be fights that are caused by the person who has anger issues with this there is grief between themselves and the people around them. As a matter of fact some reports that come from around the world say that almost an increasing number of people have anger problems. There are many existing factors that can cause anger to arise although scientists believe that anger is an emotion that is misunderstood and that all of us react to "anger triggers" something that you should know about anger triggers is that it is something that can frustrate or annoy an individual resulting in injustice or unfairness it can also happen when someone feels insulted disrespected or a threat to our authority and reputation.

nger triggers can happen to anyone they become different from age, culture, and gender the reactions often vary some folks may get angry and then they forget about what they were mad about they let it go while others they become mad easily and stay angry for days, months or even years.
Parental example
Parents are an example for the personality development of their own children in childhood and adolescence. As children grow they start to learn to face their anger by using the same anger behaviour that any member of the family uses a perfect example for this would be a child that lives in a hostile place where his parents get mad for simple smaller matters then the child is going to be like that also as an adult they are going to think that it is OK to get angry at life's problems instead of finding a solution to solve them. In other words anger is like a stain and when the kids experience too much of it they may have anger management problems as adults.
Anger can also be common in cities that are crowded with a large population inhabiting that city getting into some history during the year of 1800 abut 3 percent of the worlds population lived in urban areas. In 2008 the number of people rose to 50 percent and by 2050 it is predicted to go up to 50 percent, and by 2050 it is predicted to go up by 70 percent as a result as time goes by more and more people live in crowded cities and that produces anger problems because of traffic jams, and stress, air pollution, noise, scarce housing, cultural clashes and high crime rates. So it gives residents a reason to lose patience.
Economic problems can also be a factor since almost 210 million people across the globe are predicted to be unemployed and it also affects individuals who do have a job because they might worry of loosing their jobs this leads to thinking of the worst to happen. Prejudice and injustice also contribute to people getting angry for the fact that they face some form of prejudice or racial problems meaning that it limits some persons to have full access to the basic necessities that almost everyone needs like jobs, education, housing.  

How to keep anger under control
If you ever think about it the bible expresses ways to control anger beautifully the bible psalmist David explained "Let anger alone and leave rage: do not show yourself heated up only to do evil". If you ever want to avoid saying or doing something that you might later on regret badly then I would recommend for you to keep yourself cool. There are three ways that you can consider to get your anger under control.
# 1- Decrease anger's Intensity
It's important to relax and go slow on your emotions the first thing that you can do is to stop saying the first things that come to your mind otherwise if you feel the urge to get extremely exaggerating then try to remember this bible quote saying "The beginning of contention is as one letting out waters: so before the quarrel has burst forth, take your leave" (Proverbs 17:14) and when you actually start applying this proverb into your life you will start seeing anger differently.
# 2 - Learn to relax
Another bible saying that will help fix you emotionally, physically, and spiritually goes like this "A calm heart is the life of the freshly organism" (Proverbs 14:30). Using proverbs from the bible plus relaxation techniques will all help your feelings of anger go away. Some of the methods of reducing anger are to:
- Breathe deeply this one probably almost everyone knows it is known to e one of the fastest ways that makes lower your anger intensity.
- Everytime you are breathing deeply repeat words to yourself that are calming but just dont say the words out loud so that way people wont hear them.
- Get yourself into an activity that you fully enjoy doing such as reading, listening to music, gardening or something else like writing in your journal that always helps and it can also be a good therapy.
- Do exercise regularly and eat healthy.
Those are just some of the ways that anyone who finds themselves with anger controlling problems can do. Remember dont let anger get the best of you all of us human beings have the power of stopping anger.

Faith is about never 
giving up never 
backing down 
among the face of fear.

Faith is about waking up everyday
without knowing how your 
day will be but always 
thinking positive.

Faith is about realizing that 
there will always be love in life 
it will never die
because it's what keeps us alive. 

Faith is about wanting a second 
chance at life and at your dreams 
when there seems to be no way 
out because from then 
you will know that in the end 
there will be an 
open door for you.
