A Green Hue

I’m driving down the highway. The sky is clear and the sun is shining. Only a slight chill was noticeable this morning. The past few days were overcast with wind and rain. All I can seemingly do is to reflect on the laundry list of tasks that need my attention today, not to mention tomorrow’s…

Overcommitted

Several years ago I was anxiety-ridden to an extreme. I was at one point even medicated for my anxiousness, especially pertaining to situational OCD. I would literally fear things like health issues so frequently that I’d manifest symptoms, which worsened over time. I eventually got off medication once my mind could recognize and rationalize my…

Backwards Growth

Why do we go from success to failure so quickly? Why are some days so much easier than others to accomplish the same thing?

Show up READY!

We need to train for our relationships, like we do for so many other things in life! Training for the Tough Mudder got me thinking about training for romance!

I have been thinking quite a bit about my “Light Dimmers.” These are any stumbling blocks between who I am today and the healthier spiritual, mental and…

I had an idea pop into my head a few times today, so figure it’s worth exploring. I’m nearing the end of this journey and feel my last post should be a letter to myself. I left Phoenix, AZ on July 20th and am slated to arrive back this Saturday, September 7th. Many people write…

GET OUT OF THE RING

I had an incident recently with someone who I “should” be close with. This isn’t the first time we’ve had unnecessary friction, quite frankly it seems to be more the norm the past few years. I won’t get into too much detail because frankly it’s not necessary to relay the point. Let’s just say it…

Surrender Project: Week 2 Update

I sit here as nearly half of May is in the books. The project of truly surrendering my life to God’s infinite wisdom and power is underway. I’ve hit my knees and prayed my surrender prayer when waking up for nearly two weeks straight now. I really try be present and focus on the words…
