We have heard that everyone struggles with something or with multiple things and they can be small or big. Struggles stem from past experiences or from a current experience that is completely foreign to us. One of my struggles is letting go of situations that have reached out of my control. Before I have come to the end of myself and surrendered it to the Lord, I need to ensure that I did all that I could.

A holiday we either dread or can not wait for. The candy hearts, chocolate, flowers and teddy bears line the racks of stores, as everyone begins to shop for their loved ones before Feb. 14: Valentine's Day.

You squat when you sit down. You squat when you stand up out of a chair. You do single leg squats (albeit with a short range of motion) when you walk up or down stairs. You squat when you pick something up off the floor. You squat before you jump and when you land after a jump. You squat when you use the …. Nevermind, you get the idea.

Society’s opinion on our personal lives influences our self esteem more than we think. The feeling of “I’m not good enough” and “I wish I was different” crowd our thoughts and take over our view of ourselves.
