Inflation

These days, you cannot go one day without hearing about inflation. Inflation is like a tax we pay without legislation.

But what about other types of inflation like inflated egos, inflated truths (lies) and inflated expectations? We can live humbly, tell the truth and set realistic expectations without legislation. Think about it…

Be Yourself!

All of us want to feel accepted. We want others to like us. Sometimes this desire to be included leads us to act like someone we aren’t.

It’s more important to live authentically, to show the world our true selves. When we live true to our inner spirit, we are the same person no matter the crowd we are in. We are ourselves…

Trials

Trials are placed in our lives to grow us…to strengthen us. We have a choice when faced with challenges: we can rise to the challenge or we can shrink from it. To rise, think of the trials of life as opportunities. It might not make what you are going through any easier, but it gives purpose to the challenge…

Broken…

When a car breaks down, we get it repaired. Why don’t we fix ourselves?

All of us are broken in some way. Our lives might look good, even perfect on social media, but we hide our true selves. All of us have past hurts, pain, unresolved issues and great memories. This makes us who we are.

We can fix our emotional brokenness through self-work. People avoid this kind of work because it’s hard to really look at yourself, your flaws and patterns which don’t serve you well. But doing the hard work on yourself is so worthwhile. Take the first brave step to freedom. And keep going…

The Voiceless…

Speak up for those who feel like they don’t have a voice. Stand your ground for what’s right, even if you have to stand alone. There’s no honor in “going with the flow” if that path leads to sorrow. There are many people who are in pain, desperately trying to find hope. Be their light in the darkness…

Work

Unless you were born a trust fund child, you have to work. Our work should be more than just a job; more like a calling. A calling gives purpose to our jobs, fulfills our heart’s desires and sustains us even on our worst days. If your work isn’t fulfilling you, you might not be aligned with the calling our Creator placed on your life. Something to consider…

Conflict

Conflict is unavoidable, but it doesn’t have to destroy relationships. Our world would be pretty boring if we all looked and thought the same. God loves variety! The truth is that we can learn from each other. An opinion that’s different from our own isn’t a threat. Consider it to be an opportunity to see things from a different viewpoint. We are better together…

Divided

In the United States, we are more divided now than since the Civil War. There’s nothing civil about war. We are weakened and compromised when we stand apart. The media and the politicians are feeding this division, but we do not have to allow it. In truth, we are more alike than we are different. Stand up for what’s right. Let the dividers wallow in their own mess…
