What’s Your Reason?

What motivates you? Is it fear? Enjoyment? A need to be right? A need to win? Security? Happiness? Love? It is actually an important question when you think about it. Why do you do the things you do? If you do not know what motivates you how can you convince yourself to do anything? How…

The Pause

I read an interesting article today. You can read it here. It's from a Christian perspective, but I think it is applicable to everyone. In a nutshell it is a list of 7 questions to ask yourself before you speak, post, tweet, or send anything about politics. I think it is great advice. I have…
