    While this past month has not been easy for me to keep up with my personal niyamas, it has definitely allowed me to gain a deeper insight into myself and learn some new things along the way. My first niyama I chose to focus on was purity. While everyone can always strive to eat better of exercise more, I wanted to do something personal and something I have been effected by for a long time. I have been biting my nails for longer than I can remember, and I know my nails are too short. I am constantly reminded when I try to pry open a can of soup or scratch off a lottery ticket without a coin that my nails are unnaturally short. I have tried to stop before, but failure was always the end result. For this month I chose to focus less on completely stopping and more about when and why I do it. If I was able to prevent myself at certain times, that was just a bonus. Prior to starting the month, I never really knew or bothered to wonder why I bit my nails. I knew it was bad, but it just happened without me even know I’m doing it. Even if I ended up having better awareness of when I bite my nails, I would consider it a successful exercise. Nevertheless, I went through the month, somedays not feeling any urge at all, while other days I couldn’t control myself until every last nail was trimmed down to nothing. Overall my progress made was minimal if not nonexistent. Still I have learned much about my habit. I used to think that I did not just bite my nails when I was nervous or…

It was a tradition of my baseball team to go to the Miracle League once a year. I was nervous, and did not know what to expect. It was a steaming hot…

    the NBA would be the only possible thing I would be able to do in life. It did not happen and I was kind of lost for a point in my life with not knowing what to do with myself. After I graduated high school I decided eventually to go play basketball at the local junior college and it just didn’t feel the same for me and I lost a lot of confidence in myself in about everything. For the first time in my life I quit a team which was a huge mistake and something I should have stuck out and did…

    Have you ever found ten dollars laying on the ground? What did you do with those ten dollars? Majority of society will be dishonest and take the money. They may use it for whatever they please.

    The ground was shaking. I stood still for a brief moment. It was a herd buffalo running towards a cliff. They were running through the field, as if it was away from someone. I took a second glance and saw that it was my people which the buffalo were running away from. Everyone that was in my band was chasing after the buffalo, including my daughter. Had I known that they were going on a hunt I would have gone with them. It was in that moment that I knew something didn’t feel right. In Alberta,…

    During the 1980’s, Stephen King wrote The Eyes of the Dragon for his little girl because she wasn’t exactly a fan of the books he normally wrote.

    I had a considerable day and night after we spoke. I immediately had a family meeting where some brutal honesty came into play for all of us. I heard everything you said, your concerns, and more so disappointment. I think that’s the part that hurt the most. In fact writing this saddens me. I do believe before I came to your home I was lost and still very much so learning. In all, from the moment I got the home my main objective was to keep this gem, raise Grace and not upset the process. That…
