I’ve read about personality leakage before. All that means is that you are able to see someone’s personality as you watch their behavior and their actions. I’ve never read about Identity Leakage, but I figure we can make it up … Continue reading

Every relationships will bring pain. Sometimes the pain happens at the end of it – when they pass away or when some event ends the relationships. Whether voluntary or accidental, the end of relationship always brings pain. Sometimes the pain … Continue reading
I got this line from Sherry Turkle’s book Alone Together. Whenever you first meet someone – anyone – you are probably interacting with one of their projected identities. It is important to realize that this as you get to know … Continue reading
I find that when I have a question – any question – any time – I Google it. Lately, I’ve been Googling at the table. If we are talking about something an we can’t remember the name of the song, the actor, or the movie – you are only a click away from figuring it out.
The table though used to be where family bonds grew. It used to be the place to catch up or download. It was the place where the connections grew deeper.
No longer. Google has taken over.
I want to try and not Google during my meals. I’d love to return to the table to connect, to eat.
I wonder what Google might think of this.
Have you ever been talked into – anything? You know that feeling. You might have even done it to someone else. It’s getting convinced to do something – that really you don’t want to do. Now I think there are … Continue reading

This is the definition of mooch from http://www.thefreedictionary.com/mooch. You can check it out for yourself. It’s the first one that Google shared.
I don’t even know what the impetus for this idea was. I just started a post and saved it as a draft with the title Relationship Mooch.
I’m sure there might be a more technical term for it, but it’s a passionless person – a passion stealer. Remember in the Italian Job, Edward Norton would steal the dreams of everyone else on the team – yeah – that’s what I’m talking about. Someone that just mooches off of his relationships. Nothing is original. Nothing is his. He just steals passion, dreams, and attention for himself. Relationship Mooch.
The thing is – you have to feel sad for this person. They are so much about stealing other people’s ideas and dreams and it produces 2 consequences.
1. They don’t have friends.
2. Their life is about stealing other people’s dreams and passions – ergo they don’t have friends.
If you a relationship mooch, you can come steal some of my dreams and passions. They’re pretty good.
There is a relationship between fear and faith. If you have fear, you don’t have faith and interestingly enough, if you have faith, there is no fear.
Fear leads to paralysis. Fear leads to inactivity. Fear leads to sitting around and not taking a chance because of the fear of risk and failure. Fear holds you back. Fear keeps you from action. Fear keeps you from leaping into an exciting adventure. Fear might make you feel safe, but being safe can be the riskiest thing that you can do for growth and development.
Faith leads to action. Faith brings about change and challenging the status quo. Faith makes you jump. Faith gives you hope and that hope gives you a vision of what could be. Faith can make your dreams a reality. Faith brings about risk, but that risk can lead and will lead to amazing things. Faith abandons the doubt and gives you your dreams. Faith will cause the inability to diminish – I’d never make a statement about faith completely diminishing because no one is that amazing. No one is full of complete faith, but having a little more of it might make the difference between amazing and just getting by.
I don’t really care what your dreams are, but I can tell you, if you have fear-they’ll never come true. Faith-true faith will bring about awesome and amazing things. I want to be about helping people have more faith – more faith in themselves – more faith in Jesus – more faith in the impossible.
What are you fearful of?
