Changing for Change

I get bored easily. Which is ridiculous when you consider how big the world is and how vast the options available to us. But we are a part of the A.D.D generation, where we continually ping from one thing to the next. It’s both a blessing and a curse. God didn’t create us to be content sitting on the sidelines. He created us for activity, movement, adventure. The trouble begins […]

 

Freshman 15

School has begun. September is here and it’s a fact of life that all educational systems start up again with the fall of summer. For some of you that means you’re entering into a new (maybe even frightening) season. September was always a difficult month for me because of all the changes. However, without change there is no growth…and without growth, well… you might as well be dead. The Freshman […]

 

Deeper Friendships

Distinctions are important.  I’m finding that truth is the difference between mere affection and sincere love.  I have felt affectionate and have admired many people in my life, but our brief encounters do not allow for deep truths to be reckoned with.  Relationships which remain on the surface level are “phoney” (to borrow Holden Caulfield’s favorite adjective) relationships, in a sense.  They never get past the outer facade we display to the […]

 

Confronting the Doormat

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I talk a really big game. I can get worked up with the best of them about what I would do, or say, given the chance to speak my mind. THEN they’d be in BIG trouble. Truth is, instinctively confrontation scares the living daylights out of me. I’m all talk and about .01% follow-through. And on the rare occasion I have been pushed […]

 

Not Okay

There seems to be a rumor going around that it’s not okay to be not okay.  That it’s not okay to need help, to feel to the extreme, or even to not know what to do. Somewhere along the line we have believed that in order to be worth the approval and envy of our peers that we must have it 100% together 100% percent of the time. Which is […]

 

The Domino Effect

I don’t know what it is about the mind of a woman, but it seems like we struggle with worry way more than our male counterparts. Our female psyche is able to simultaneously think of 75 different outcomes for every decision and situation. Usually 90% of them are ways things could go wrong. Or ways they already have gone wrong. Or ways something else could go wrong based on the […]

 

Exposed

When something is wrong I have the tendency to keep to myself. I hole up in my room, close the door, and create my very own personal pain closet. Whether it’s an argument, an emotional day, or a shameful feeling, my instinct is to ferret away and shack up in my room like the Unabomber. Not only do I not trust that I won’t give away the state of my […]
