What exactly is Cultural Appropriation?

This is a term that has confused me for far too long; if not for the Kardashians and my twitter feed, I would not even know that it existed; but thanks to my timeline, I still don’t really know what it is.

Magnify the Lord!

I hope you guys don’t mind, but I’m about to preach! This post will be long… very long, take your time to digest it.

Eat Your Cake: The Battle Between Goals & Systems

The saying goes “you can’t eat your cake and have it too” and I agree… sort of.

Rose Coloured Glasses: The Art of Humility

Comparison is discussed on here a great deal because it’s a massive issue in today’s society that is highly overlooked. We’re all guilty of admiring the lawn next door with greener grass, but we never stop and think about what kind of chaotic state the house that sits on that lawn may be in.

Loneliness: “I Have No Friends”

Loneliness… such an exciting topic! Before I begin, I don’t want anyone reading this who considers me a friend to take offence to this. Look beyond the title and you may agree with my words.
