Thanksgiving focus

I had an interesting week. Earlier in it, I was listening to a live feed of someone I admire. He got to a point when he started speaking about what an idol would look like nowadays. Basically, when we think of the word “idol”, we picture some primitive people of the past (or the present…Read more Thanksgiving focus

Self-assured?

Stomp it out!

For some, it manifests through sudden strange scary thoughts when they’re alone; for others it shows up as panic attacks; and for yet others, it is noticeable when the idea of interacting with others (one-on-one or in a group of whatever size) creates a feeling of near dread within.

If there’s anything I’m proud of, it’s my humility. Har-har-har. Yes, I’ll be here all week. Oh. You’ve heard that one before? No matter. I’ll have to think of something else that will make you laugh off that chair you’re presently sitting on. Meanwhile, I’ve been thinking of this thing called humility. It’s one of…Read more Virtuous humility
