Here We Are, Here We Go.

Photo by Gelgas Airlangga on Pexels.com This project has gone through some ups and downs, as have I. I think when I rebranded as "Being Sanctified" I had an ideal in my mind that did not come to fruition. That is the way most things have been in my life, honestly. Experience tells me it's … Continue reading Here We Are, Here We Go.

Imprisoned

Photo by Elti Meshau on Pexels.com I strike the earth with fury. Mountains crumble. Darkness falls. Where am I? From where have I come? Strength is fiction. Life isn't real. Stars fill the night sky, mocking me. My prison is inescapable. My strength is weakness against the walls of this hell. My life is nothing. … Continue reading Imprisoned

The Storm

Photo by Oleg Magni on Pexels.com I'm caught in a twister. I've sewn seeds of destruction. I am working. I'm getting stuff done. That's what I tell myself. Really I'm ripping up the Earth, tearing through the city, not noticing or caring about my own destructive wake. I'm am the twister. I am the storm, … Continue reading The Storm

Stop and enjoy the view

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com What is there to be said of "going with the flow"? I once thought it a virtue, to be the kind of person who willingly moves where life directs. This view was passed down to me by my mother, a veritable "free spirit" if ever there was one, and it … Continue reading Stop and enjoy the view

Begin

Photo by Danielle MacInnes on Unsplash I spent a lot of time waiting. Just waiting. I thought that at some point in the future I would recognize that it was "the perfect time" to begin pursuing my dreams. I wasted a lot of years that way. Granted, they weren't a total loss, because I learned … Continue reading Begin

Photo by Denis Agati on Unsplash I'm just gonna jump into it! First, there’s no one like you. What you create and say and do is unique to you. Keeping that bottled up is depriving the world of your art! There are a lot of people out there who would love to see what you … Continue reading Being Authentically You – Why It’s Good for Your Soul (and Others)

God and Cain and Abel

Photo by Ian on Unsplash I've been thinking a lot lately about the Biblical reality that God was more pleased with Abel's offering to Him than He was with Cain's offering. Many of you know at this point that I don't consume animal products. If you've read THIS POST then you'll know why. My goal … Continue reading God and Cain and Abel

“Blinders On”

Photo by ian dooley on Unsplash I've been on a crazy Audible kick lately, and I'm currently listening to "Crushing It: How Great Entrepreneurs Build Their Business and Influence - and How You Can, Too" by Gary Vaynerchuck. The book is full of value, but one thing stands out in my mind, and that is … Continue reading “Blinders On”

Monk Mode

Monk Mode was a way for me to say no to some of the instant gratification I so often sought. I could say, "No, I'm in Monk Mode right now. I need to focus." It helped quite a lot. But that phrase in and of itself is just a tool. It can help in the moment of temptation to get you through it, but eventually it grows stale without some kind of long-term commitment.

Why Am I Here?

Photo by Danny Howe on Unsplash Why am I here? It's a question that has plagued humanity since long before we could drown out our existential dread with alcohol, drugs, junk food, porn, video games, etc. It's a question that I've asked numerous times. Or is it? Is that the question I asked? Or are … Continue reading Why Am I Here?
