Thoughts on Being a Good Person

I want to live like there’s a gun held to my head. That doesn’t mean I want to live in constant fear; I mean I want to be doing good as if my life depended on it. I want to be seeking to please people, to help them, to be an aid to them in…

Desires and the Two Pains

I was thinking lately about desiring things, and how when we strongly desire something, it can affect our actions, even if we later regret it. Of course, a strong feeling is not a legitimate reason to do something; just because an emotion or want is powerful doesn't mean we can't resist it. But to return…

Thoughts on Scandalous Ankles

This is something I wrote when I was sixteen. I hope you enjoy. I know I may be presenting an unpopular opinion here, but I'm willing to accept that and whatever flack you give me. Even if you disagree with my premise or principles, please try and understand my underlying point and conclusion. I think…

Watching Old Movies

I really enjoy watching old black and white movies. They're clean, they're generally more thoughtful or reflective, men always wore hats and spoke in quick, deep tones, and everything felt a little more realistic and relatable. But sometimes there's a little catch: of course directors wants good-looking actors and actresses, so naturally the movie features…

Short Thoughts about Today

Remember yesterday, when you said you would "do something tomorrow?" Or other tasks or self-renovation acts that you've been putting off for a while? Today is yesterday's tomorrow, so I'll make no excuses for procrastinating in any way. Then there are those days that you regret. Have you ever woken up Sunday and gritted your…

Loving the Unseen

Sure, we determine our friends by their personalities, senses of humour, or compatibility with our own life mission; yet those we see more often (and who are more pleasant to look at), we tend to care about more*. (Thus,…

The Experts’ Opinions on Time

This is a compilation I, um, compiled of some quotes on time, when I was thinking about what exactly time was, and how one could poetically define it. Thus, this. Enjoy. If you like it, comment or click the like button. Have a blessed day. What is time? Trying to come up with a straightforward definition for…

Quick Thought on Uniqueness

The idea of uniqueness that I was taught was that I am unique in everything I do. This is a great message for high self-esteem, but I don't think it's entirely accurate. And besides, there's more to life than self-esteem. The thing about uniqueness isn’t that everything I do is special. It doesn’t mean that…

Living Martyrs

[A note going in: I am a Christian of sorts – meaning I believe without reserve that everything in the Bible is true, and that the God of the Bible never changes. I don’t do things “normal” Christians do, like Easter of Christmas, because I don’t find them in the Bible. I call Jesus “Yeshua,”…
