I graduated from UNC Charlotte with a BA in Religious History with an emphasis in early Christian origins. I have spent my adult life as an amateur philosopher and avid student of the academic side of Christian origins. My interest in philosophy has led me to observing human behavior, especially as it relates to personal fulfillment and achieving success. It is my mission to help dreamers understand how to become doers. By understanding a few universal principles those that wish, hope, dream, but never achieve can find the personal success they have always wanted.
The other day I was using Siri on my phone to find some information. I was quite pleased with her prompt and accurate finds, so I felt the need to thank her. I said, “muchos gracias Siri.” But what Siri heard was “muchos grassy us.” Oh my Southern accent! Siri is seriously not a Southern girl! We may break up soon. No. Not really.
Good morning, friends! If you’re reading this post, that means that you have work to do, and I’m not talking about that awesome 9 to 5 you’re heading to in a few short hours; I’m talking about your purpose — the reason that you exist! Every day is an opportunity to serve those around you by using your talents, abilities, and gifts. Are you taking advantage of these opportunities? Just think of your purpose as a mission. As always, I’m mission-minded and singing a song.
Rolling down the street praising Jesus, sippin’ on iced green tea
Laid-back, with my mind on my mission and my mission on my mind.

Sometimes a song will enter your head, and you have to switch up the lyrics a little (or in this case, a lot) to get you in the right space for doing what God…
Last week I wrote about losing my Zen and the support and understanding was insane. I thought about it a lot before writing it and of course after. The truth is, I’ve been living in limbo for the better part of 2 years. It’s been something I’ve struggled with. It’s something I’ve thought about A LOT and in a very negative way. And then the other night I had what I’ll call an epiphany.
So what do I mean by ‘Living in limbo?’
I mean that for me personally I wasn’t clear on my future. My wants, goals, value…and such. That’s the kind of limbo I’m talking about here.
Now my readers tend to be some of the most compassionate, kind and supportive people on WordPress so let me preference what I’m about to say….I am NOT beating myself up. I am NOT on a downward spiral. But to get…
Ever heard the classic conversation starter ‘If you had a fire, what would you save?’ Imagine if your legitimate answer was ‘well I did have a fire – and I lost it.’ That’s right; you had a fire and now you’re also a mood killer. You’re probably not feeling so good about yourself right now huh?
The Great Bedroom Fire of 2012, as it is fondly remembered today five years on (queue a fire emoji followed by several coloured hearts, you know the drill) wasn’t the biggest of fires in the grand scheme of things. It flamed across the curtains, cracking the window in the process, burnt through a suitcase packed with clothes and a couple of boxes and along the wardrobe. The rest of my small student room was smoke damaged had to be redecorated and carpeted but the remaining objects and furniture were mostly salvageable. I had spent the first term of my…
Mark Twain – “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”
Let me ask you a question:
Can one truly have an open mind without traveling the world?
I am going to recycle this post from day-to-day and allow readers to leave links to their post in the comments. I’ll be using this in 2 ways: 1. create link share posts, and 2. each day I’ll randomly pick one blog and reblog it to my readers.
Here are the basic rules:
Leave a link in the comments
The time stamp on the comment MUST be for that day. So you have to leave a comment each day!
It’s that easy!
I’ll pick each day based on the time stamp with the daily winner reblogged the following day. Be sure to check back and leave a link daily!
