The other day, in the midst of my anxiety and depression, my husband read me Psalm 42. It may not have helped in that moment, but I’ve been dwelling on that Psalm since then. It has now been bringing me continual comfort.

Isaiah 41:10

Isaiah 41:10 – Basically the favourite scripture verse of all anxious Christians. I took the background photo for the image above when I visited Prince Edward Island with my family three years ago. This verse reminds me of that vacation because I found it around that same time.

However, when it comes to personal failures, I feel like the world is about to end.  Continue reading “Failures”

If you watch MTV at all (my occasional guilty pleasure), you are guaranteed to hear someone, on some stupid reality show, end their screen time with “Just gotta live life, no regrets!”  Continue reading ““No Regrets””
