And the Runner Up!

I like to tackle topics of the mind, body, and spirit. Today I am going to center on the body, in particular, running although the mind and spirit are definitely integral in this endeavor. Even if you are not a runner or even feel like you could never be one, hear me out on this…

What is love?

What does it mean to love someone? First, we need to describe the type of love we are talking about. Today, society’s idea of love is very skewed. Most young people would not be able to give you a good definition of love, they would likely give an answer that more relates to how they…

The Pursuit of Happiness

What does it take to be happy? Better yet, what brings you joy? I like the distinction made by the website https://www.psychologies.co.uk In the article Joy vs happiness it says, Joy and happiness are wonderful feelings to experience, but are very different. Joy is more consistent and is cultivated internally. It comes when you make peace…

Gratitude Time!

Okay, time to take a moment for gratitude! Here are five things I am grateful for right now: I am grateful for God’s provision in my life. I am grateful for my family and friends. I am grateful for my job and that I can impact their lives. I am grateful for the comfort of…

I should be committed!

I know what you’re thinking. “Yes, yes you should be committed.” I believe the vehicle of personal change and growth lies in desire, motivation, and commitment.

I hope you fail!

I hope you fail! I really do! My articles, for a little while anyway, will be centered on mindset and the way we think. So often we see failure as a reason to quit, an ending point for what we may attempt to achieve. We might say to ourselves, “Well, I tried and failed. Time…

The Power of Perseverance

All people have struggles, obstacles, and difficulties in life, it’s what makes us human. How we overcome those struggles is what makes us who we are and it is how we are measured by others. I don’t have regrets…none. I have faced many challenges in my life, however, I would not wish a single one…

What Motivates You?

I have come to a point in my life when I am scrutinizing my choices and what motivates me to make those choices. What has motivated you to read this blog? Maybe you were bored and there was nothing better to do. Maybe you are looking for anything that will bring on change or something…

Food For Thought

One of the choices I have struggled over and still struggle over in my life is food. In American, we have what we call the S.A.D. diet, or “Standard American Diet,” which consists of processed food often high in sugar, salt, saturated fat, and synthetic flavors and materials. About a year ago I decided to…
