I’ve talked with a few people recently about the pressure to perform. Many of us feel a pressure to achieve and maintain a certain standard or accomplish a goal set by someone else. While it can be a good thing to push ourselves, this performance perspective is slowly draining the life from us. When my head comes off the pillow in the morning, one of my first thoughts is ‘don’t waste your day’. In case you’re wondering, that’s not the…

Confidence is something that is easy to talk about and pretty difficult to actually obtain. I’ve heard the full range of opinions on how to gain confidence. Some people say that we just ‘need to be ourselves’ while others suggest we lose a few pounds and buy some new clothes.

I’ve been thinking recently about the fact that God goes through this pain everyday. God actively loves me and expresses that love in a multitude of ways. I acknowledge only a fraction of these expressions and take very little time to stop and appreciate His love or respond to it because I tend to believe that my…

This series of articles on sarcasm started when a friend of mine pointed out that some of my sarcastic comments towards other people were kind of cutting. He and I both knew that most of my sarcasm was playful and that’s why he needed to take the time to point that out.
