Like a Cat in a Cage

catcage

Yesterday, Jeff and I took our cat Oliver to the vet. Now, before Oliver, I had a cat for 10 years. Sophie. She hated the vet. She hated the carrier, she hated the car, she hated people, she hated everything. Oliver is different kine of cat. He loves people. He loves attention. He loves food and his toys and he even loves water! But, just like Sophie, he hates the car. And he hates his carrier. Getting him in that thing is like torture. For all parties involved.

Just Me and My Selfishness

I am a selfish person. This took me many, many years to finally and freely admit, but it’s true. It’s partially because of my personality, and partially because of my anxiety. Whatever the reason, it doesn’t really matter – selfishness is selfishness. And it’s a relationship killer. It’s destructive. I hate it.  Continue reading “Just Me and My Selfishness”

Failures

We can’t be good at everything. I know that. I’ve never considered myself a perfectionist. For example, In grade 3, my best friend at the time failed a math test. So did I. She cried for 10 minutes. I wondered why she cared so much. In high school, I was happy with 70’s. Although I aim for much higher now that I’m in university, I’m still not hard on myself when it comes to school. I’m not a perfectionist when it comes to my personal space either. I’m disorganized. I’m a slob. I’m messy. I’m perfectly fine with making mistakes when it comes to work – I know that I will learn from them. However, when it comes to personal failures, I feel like the world is about to end.  Continue reading “Failures”

Crap Happens: Date Edition

So, as I said in one of my recent posts, I started seeing someone about a month ago. And no, this post isn’t really about that. Well, it is. Sort of. Not really. Just read it. Anyway! A few weeks ago we had our first “real” date planned out – we were going to go see the new LEGO movie, and then go out for dessert and/or drinks after. Well, the night before our date, I checked the weather. And I was not pleased.

He’s There

If you’ve read some of my posts from the summer, you’ll see that I had a hard time feeling connected to God. I didn’t hear Him like I used to. I didn’t feel…anything. During a heated argument with my parents, I even blurted out “I’m not even a Christian!”
It wasn’t true. It wasn’t how I actually felt. I was just extremely frustrated with the silence. But I’ve experienced this so many times in my “Christian walk”. I knew that silence always comes to an end. Continue reading “He’s There”

Matthew 6:25-27

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?”
