What Do You Like About Yourself ?

It's kind of strange, but for some reason people struggle with answering this more so than if you ask them what they don't like about themselves. Seems they can come up with quite a list of negatives, but the positives things are harder for them to acknowledge.

Sometimes, we spend so much time thinking about our faults, and our weaknesses that we overlook everything that is precious and beautiful about ourselves.

So, I thought I'd ask the question:

What do you like about yourself?

It may be things about your body, your... Read More

I read a book one time about ways of discovering your life’s meaning. It was informative, and filled with lots of ideas and methods of taking your existence into positive territory. And one of the areas I enjoyed most was an exercise in listing at least ten of your biggest moments so far—those trinkets in time helping shape who you are and that left the greatest impressions. For everyone, those experiences can be both, good and bad; a divorce or bad breakup, childhood bully, death of someone you loved. Or maybe it was the thrill of graduating from college, getting your first job, meeting “the... Read More

Every few years the Olympics comes around and becomes the centerpiece of global culture. In a world filled with crime, war, poverty, and injustice, the spectacle of seeing people who have dedicated major portions of their lives to excelling at a physical discipline and rising to the highest levels of human achievement is not only a welcome distraction. It is inspirational, uplifting, and even awe inspiring! Seeing someone spin in the air more times than you can count, then land on a slippery surface on 1/8" wide blade of steel and do it with grace is a stunning sight to see! Watching people...

PRIDE IS SWEET IN THY MOUTH, YET RUIN, IS BITTER IN THY BELLY

The trouble with the awaken brothers, is that almost every one, once awaken assumes they know the entire truth, they seem to take on an enormous sense of pride, going about stealing information from one another and presenting it to the congregation as if the Most High spoke to them first. Operating as if the Most High will give them points or blessings by telling others first some new secret about the bible, when they really don't seek after the Most High, but after fame, recognition, and the maintenance of their own pride.

“Motivation” is a word commonly used. It is a word that gets thrown around a lot. Most often people associate motivation with something positive but, in fact, it does not always encompass positive emotions. Fear is an effective motivating factor for many people. Stress is an example of how negative emotions trigger undesirable results. Many people freeze, break down, or panic when they are stressed--thus demonstrating a negative response to the motivation. However, someone who works harder and smarter to overcome the stress uses positive actions in response to that negative motivation.

We don't need to look far to find scandal, abuse, adultery, the use of pornography, lying, drunkenness and other types of reprehensible behavior among people that are supposed to be living good Christian lives. People that call themselves 'Christian' are many times the opposite of what one would consider a Christian to be (I include myself in this group, in times past). While there is an aspect of human frailty and weakness that we all will struggle with to some extent, there is a doctrine that has become a 'pillar' of the vast majority of Christian churches which is not Biblical and has led...

JOE POLITE. RIGINAL.

Joe was the epitome of politeness. The day he was born he apologized to his mum for causing her pain, indeed, for taking up space in her one bedroom with en-suite shower combo. He knew his pretty mum had a busy schedule to adhere to. His mum was single, a career woman, a go-getter corporate type. She had virtually womb- built Josphef from insemination to exclamation "it's a boy!"

Despite the careful hand- crafted genes/semen computed stats of donor,extracted, twirled and stored: precisely rigid monitorial regime, J turned out to be just a pretty normal kid...nothing... Read More
