Seven years…

I’ve debated all week on how I wanted to approach today.. and honestly all week I thought we were coming up to the sixth year anniversary of my Dad’s passing.. only to realize I was a freshman in college SEVEN years ago and it has been seven years since my Dad took his final breath on this Earth. Time really does fly by fast when we aren’t paying attention and making full use of each and everyday. Not a day goes by where I ...

Thank you

It has been over a month since I’ve shared any thoughts, feelings and/or emotions. But tonight as I stare at this blank white box and try to figure out where to begin – I am flooded with emotions. Emotions of gratefulness, happiness and joy. So here goes nothing… Dear Hope City Family, First off, thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Words can’t even begin to say how thankful I am for each and every one of you – no ...

Seasonal Depression, Anxiety & Overall Sadness

In order to write a post like this, I decided to start with a few definitions to give a clear definition of where I was coming from: Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that’s related to changes in seasons — SAD begins and ends at about the same times every year. If you’re like most people with SAD, your symptoms start in the fall and continue into the winter months, sapping your energy and making you feel ...

Never Give Up

    What do you do when you feel like giving up? What do you do when you feel like you don’t have any motivation to keep moving on? There are so many times in my life where I can look back and pinpoint where I’ve had a meltdown, been in a slump, didn’t want to move and/or didn’t want to do the things I once loved. Most of these points in my life I can point back to death, I can point back to when my Grandma, ...

Accomplishment

So, I finally did it! Did what you say? I’ve officially put together www.kathleenkubiak.com and honestly, it’s about time! I’ve always kept a blog of some sorts, a place to ramble on with the thoughts inside my head but it wasn’t until recently that I decided to make things a little more official and I couldn’t be happier that I did! The only thing I regret is not doing it sooner. A huge shout out goes to Corey ...

Comparison

Six years. Five years. Two years. One year. Today. Ever realize how much of our time here on Earth we compare to those of others? Ever realize how much of our time we spend focused on the bad things that happened in our lives rather than the good? Ever realize how much you believe your timeline of life revolves around the bad? Ever realize how much during every single day you compare your life to others around you? I’m completely ...

You’re a Good, Good Father.

It’s crazy how much of a routine we get into and when that routine changes or is not what you’re used to, how much of a rut you find yourself in. I tend to be the biggest critic on myself. If I mess up, I tend to get upset. I always talk about how afraid of change I am. How afraid of commitment I am. My life has been a constant change. That’s something I didn’t realize until recently. The person I am has been ever ...

Why I deleted all my Online Dating Profiles..

“None of us are ready for a romantic relationship until we chase God first.” I can honestly tell you that my life has been completely different these past few weeks. While nothing has exactly changed in my life, my heart, my mind and my motivation has a different output then what it was. On Sunday, March 6 2016, I got in front of a large group of people at Hope City Church and shared my story. I shared with them the mountains ...

An Open Letter to Someone who Inspires Me

I’ve heard it time and time again, “God puts people in your life for a reason”. It’s a common theme, people say it all the time.. but this is something I truly believe when it comes to you and I think you need to know how big of an inspiration you really are to me. It hasn’t been until recently that our friendship truly began, but even before, you still inspired me. Throughout your trial and tribulations, you ...

“I’m Sorry”

(Disclaimer: If any of this sounds rude, I apologize. I am just speaking in my own personal experience and how I feel on the subject. If you don’t like it, don’t read it.) It’s funny how two (or would you count it was three?) words are the worst words to say to someone who is grieving. That’s right. I said it. It’s THE WORST. I’ve had people tell me that I’m insensitive because I’ve refused to ...
