Thoughts on Happiness, Contentment, & Stuff

What if we are never content b/c we are always striving towards an illusion? A lie we were taught in grade school that if we have XY and Z then we will B, happy. We believe this lie because we do not feel happy now. So we think the stuff we want will make us happy.… Continue reading Thoughts on Happiness, Contentment, & Stuff

Fly Girl

It’s funny how you can be oblivious to certain things in your culture. You’ve grown up in it, been immersed in it since birth and are pretty immune to certain occurrences.  The same goes for family culture.

Recently I have come into more understanding of the necessity of growth and maturity as a believer in Jesus Christ.  I decided to try my hand at something new and wrote a story depicting what I’m learning.  It’s a little lengthy but hopefully still enjoyable :-).  Shalom! There once were three coworkers, Id, Ego and… Continue reading The Id, the Ego & the Self
