When walking after the flesh, you will constantly find all to be vanity…most done in chaos and indecency. All for naught. Nothing. At all.
I briefly found myself searching for happiness in food and drink. What soda, what beer will quench my thirst? What food can fill me to the brim of satisfaction? Which pretty girl will kiss my fears and hide my shame? How much money do I need to ease my families burdens and send me to unknown land for my magic feet? Where are the Joneses and what are we in competition for this week?
What happened in the news to make us weak? What holiday approaches so we can momentarily ignore the sorrowful time warp we call life? Who would you be if drugs had devoured you?
Laying here in the comfort of my bed, Im confronted with thoughts of the new year and what it will bring us. A new decade is under way, and the optimist inside of me can’t help but celebrate the strides made previously and joys of the unknown. Oh, the new people I will meet and the habits I will break! Will I take better care of my health and my wallet? Will the snow torment me in the upcoming weeks, and will I beg for the warmth of the sun? Will I ever love again? Lets not get ahead of ourselves, heaven is solitude/hell is other people. In any event, I believe we have plenty of time to create an awesome 2020 for ourselves, given the aliens don’t come for reckoning this February. Bring on the Chlorophyll! Happy New Year!

Another great article from Life Hack. As I get older and look at all of my belongings, all I can see is STUFF! I have oodles of music (cassettes, vinyl, cds) as well as movies (VHS,DVD,Blu Ray) and at some point I realized…I don’t NEED any of this. With technology ever evolving, I can slide all of my electronic goodies onto my external hard drive. Don’t get me wrong, nothing beats hearing Black Dog on vinyl, but sometimes I feel like we use STUFF as security blankets. I often give away oodles of clothes to organizations such as Purple Heart and Salvation Army. This Life Hack article focuses more on the mindset aspect than the materialistic part, but I feel that these gems can be utilized however you see fit.

Happy Happy Hump Day! In this life, we are often conflicted as to how we measure success. I think we often spend TOO much time comparing our lives with others. Hell, I know I personally spend my days running around in a frenzy to ensure each moment is a ‘highly productive’ one. In any event, I came across a LifeHack article by Carles Sabarich titled “25 signs You are Already Successful and You’re Simply Unaware.”
May it serve as your midweek motivation. Namaste.
It appears to me that a celebration is in order. In lieu of Good Friday and the entire splendor that comes with it, I’d like to share my thoughts on a movie I just watched a few days ago on Netflix entitled God’s Not Dead. The movie was released in 2014, but I just caught wind of it through a friend.
In the film, a Christian student by the name of Josh Wheaton, was attending a University and taking a philosophy class. The teacher, Professor Radisson, expected each student to denounce God in an attempt to “free them” of religious oppression. Noble idea…but who cares if your students believe in God, right? In any event, Josh felt that it was his place to defend God, and tried to convince his fellow students of God’s existence. I’m not going to ruin the movie for you, but feel free to watch it for yourself and give me your thoughts.
Rotten tomatoes gave the movie one star. I’m so surprised.
It is my understanding that people all over the world get persecuted for their beliefs daily. I still am having a hard time understanding why. In my humble opinion, it all comes down to minding your business and respecting other people’s beliefs.Right?
I guess my question is what’s wrong with believing in a God who is alive? Where have we gone wrong to shun people for believing in God? Why must we bash people who don’t believe in God?
With all of that being said, I think the movie God’s Not Dead was a tear jerker and a great watch. Yes, I am a Christian, but I think that people should stand up for whatever they believe in.We are all a part of the human race, and all of our journies are quite similar. Spread love, damnit.
Today, I celebrate the death of Christ and his resurrection respectively. Happy Good Friday; Love one another.
