A Overly-Healthy Serving of Humble Pie I will reinforce it ever more; humility can never be emphasized, advocated or preached enough. Seriously, go as far as to be a glutton for humility. Why I am saying this; because when you learn, you should be honest enough to share your wisdom and serve others. The last 2 years of my professional life have been painfully disappointing; marked by bad examples of leadership and management, incomplete, haphazard training and negligence, hypocrisy, flaky,… Read more

And looking back on my professional life the last couple of years and at those leaders that had a direct… Read more

 Going all in on Holiness Let nothing stop you from receiving God’s grace and the opportunity for holiness; excellence on all fronts. That means confronting sin with the complete confidence in the fact that you can carry your own weight in the everlasting battle against sin because of God’s grace and his desire to impart his holiness on us. We may or may not have a very linear view of sin; we may or may not have a tendency to… Read more

Living a Double Life It took repeating the same mistakes, falling into the same traps, chasing my own tail foolishly and crashing emotionally speaking twice in 2 years and some deep, deep soul searching as a result of all of this, to realize that the ball and chain that kept me from moving forward in life in several areas was false expectations. What do I mean? We live an unauthentic life, one that is not wholly ours, when we are… Read more

The main ingredients of this mess and noise are falsehood and manipulation; none of which possess any truth in any shape or form. Anxiety exaggerates your shortcomings into a sad, demoralizing drama of biblical… Read more

Everyone has an opinion and a potential avenue to let it all out; whether we like it or not. What the consequences are for engaging this liberty is a totally different discussion I don’t feel like addressing any time soon. My question today is; how… Read more

The Chaos and the Beauty What I find so terribly beautiful about crashing emotionally and spiritually speaking is the promise of starting anew. It’s terrible to feel that low, humiliated, crushed and hopeless. You are surrounded by the emotional wreckage of your life or buried underneath it; it’s heavy and heart crushing; you feel completely immobilized on every front. But if you are thinking and feeling as painful as it may seem, you are alive and likewise is the possibility… Read more
