To Love We Have to Lose Control

I’m scared of losing control, but it’s ironic. I try to control every second of my life yet I feel like I don’t have control at all.

We Are Never a Finished Product

After submitting my post last week, I realized I have a little bit more to say on what defines us.  Before I talked about not letting our past define us.  Well, what about today?  What is happening today and tomorrow definitely plays a role in what defines each and every one of us, BUT I want to make the point that it doesn’t have to be what defines us the rest of our lives!

What Defines You?

Just the other day I was having a conversation with a friend.

Once we got done jabbering about guitars, we had a good, long talk about relationships.  He made the point Continue reading

Forearms….. Really?!

I had an epiphany hanging out with some friends a couple weekends ago.  That is, we build an image in our heads of who we “want” to be in order to be accepted in society, when, in reality, hardly anyone wants us to be that person.

As I mentioned in my post last week on vulnerability, I’ve become obsessed with the topic.  This article has been going around lately.  It claims that if two strangers were to go through all of these questions/tasks together they will fall in love.  Continue reading

Fear Just Slows Us Down

There are days when I have a mini-freak out thinking “WHAT THE HELL AM I DOING?!”  I went to college, had a steady job, and then one day I get up and walk away?  For what?  I type away on a laptop and anxiously wait for someone to “like” my blog post or social media page.

Take a Step Back and Breathe

Confession: It’s hard from me to say “no” to things.  I tend to take on new responsibilities without thinking.  And when I get my mind set on something I can’t stop thinking about it. Continue reading

Mission Impossible: Make Everyone Happy

UntitledI can’t seem to get over the fact that I can’t please everyone.  I really want to, but I can’t.  I’d be lying if I said it doesn’t bother me.  It does.  I use to drive myself crazy asking over and over “What did I do wrong?”  “Why did that guy give me that look?”  “Why did she say those things about me?”  Continue reading

I Don’t Wanna Talk About It

Since I announced the release of The Church Next Door and started my mission, I’ve had a lot of people contact me.  Some people share their experiences, some looking for help and others showing their support.  I love it.  It gives me the assurance that I’m doing the right thing and the drive to keep moving forward.

I noticed something though. Continue reading

Maybe The Cool Kids Aren’t So Cool After All

Not to go on a rant like a lot of people in the world today saying “Everyone is equal!  Everyone needs healthcare!”  Yada yada yada….. That’s a battle I’m not getting into.

I’m reading a book right now titled “Searching for God’s Knows What” by Donald Miller.  He brings up the issue of social status in our world today, and how much we rely on it.  As I applied this to my life, I started to notice how much it influenced my motives and actions. Continue reading

“You have to cross the line to know where it is.”

Cross The Line

I’ve caught myself saying this multiple times recently and it got me thinking.  It’s an interesting concept.  Crossing the line.

What line?  I don’t see it anywhere. Continue reading
