The Equality Act

How do we deal with someone else’s hypocrisy? What’s the appropriate amount of anger towards unfair situations? I’ve been grappling with this as I just recently received an email saying the equality act is an attack on America and religious freedom. The equality act would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to prohibit discriminationContinue reading “The Equality Act”

Appreciate the Blessings

I recently saw a post on Instagram that said something along the lines of “I’ll never take for granted what I have cause at one point I was begging God for it”. That really resonated with me. There were times where I was begging God for a fulltime job in the industry and a goodContinue reading “Appreciate the Blessings”

The Takeaway: Soul

I know I haven’t written any reviews in a long time, but this movie has been the first one my list for a while. I forced my family to watch it with me on Christmas day. They weren’t super invested in it to begin with, but near the end of the movie I could tellContinue reading “The Takeaway: Soul”

Amazing Grace

I recently went to a family friend’s funeral. Sitting in that seat at my former church brought back strange memories of the last time I went to a funeral. I was a kid around 11 years old I think. Another family friend. If I’m being honest, I’m not accustomed to grief. I’ve never had anyoneContinue reading “Amazing Grace”

About the Stock Market Drama

I’m sure you’ve heard about it already. The Reddit users that single-handedly used the stock market game against Wall Street itself and caused the Gamestop stocks to skyrocket. That act forced a hedge fund to go bankrupt and another to lose 6% of its value. At least that’s what I believe happened. I honestly amContinue reading “About the Stock Market Drama”

A Helping Hand

The way we view the world is different for everyone. Our experiences are ours and ours alone. We can’t walk in each other’s shoes and think what they’re thinking (although that would make things much more simple). When we experience something, it paints us an emotion for the next time we interact with a similarContinue reading “A Helping Hand”

Generations of Leadership

I was never the type of kid who had their life planned out. I never knew what job I wanted, what college I wanted to attend, I didn’t even know what my favorite color was until I got older. I was the kid that, when asked what I wanted to be when I grew up,Continue reading “Generations of Leadership”

Missing Family for Christmas

Christmas movies are like the number one tradition in my family. It’s right next to lights, cookies, and Christmas dinner. My family has a ton of traditions ranging from icing sugar cookies, watching every Christmas movie we can get our hands on (except Diehard which is NOT a Christmas movie), and decorating our tree. OurContinue reading “Missing Family for Christmas”

When Despair Hits

There’s never a perfect time to have hard conversations about mental health. Withe holidays approaching and everyone feeling the busyness of the season, it’s easy to ignore or put-off our own needs. I mean all it takes is a quick google search and you get the statistics for depression, anxiety, panic, insomnia, and despair. DespairContinue reading “When Despair Hits”

Lonely Holidays

With Thanksgiving less than a week away, we’re probably all feeling the stress – the normal holiday stress mashed with the 2020 stress. Is it safe to travel? Should we even be considering inviting people over? For some of us it’s hard to decipher because we haven’t experienced the effects of covid. I believe that’sContinue reading “Lonely Holidays”
