Does Challenge Intimidate You?

Some people are intimidated by the word “challenge.” They see a path fraught with struggle and frustration; however, a worthwhile challenge can be something else entirely. It’s a challenge undertaken with passion and purpose that often leads to great things. #Pengician #SSA #MotivationalFriday

Fatal or Positive Thinker – Which Are You?

Learning how to think really means learning how to exercise some control over how and what you think.  It means being conscious and aware enough to choose what you pay attention to and to choose how you construct meaning from experience.  Because if you cannot exercise this kind of choice in adult life, you will […]

Failure Fueled My Resolution To Succeed

I’m ARTiculated too, see?

Well it’s true. I am myself a storyteller, and therefore, an optimist — a firm believer in the ethical bend of the human heart; a believer in the mind’s appetite for truth and its disgust with fraud and selfishness.

The Devil’s Box My pastor […]

Don’t Die

Don’t Die I’ve learned to fill my black holes with droplets of hope perhaps someday a life unfair would be bleached to crystal clear and that which clouds my mind I’d fully understand I’ve learned to chalk my dark days with seven shades of grey, perhaps someday, perfection would dawn on me like sunshine does […]
