Have you ever been around people who make you feel like you could do anything you set you mind to? Or people who, when with you, make you feel like you mean the world to them. Even when they have to tell you something you won’t like, you feel like they genuinely care. These are simply people builders!

I’ve seen a lot of stupid driving since moving to a city over 7 years ago. I mean, a lot. Some poor driving decisions including turning left on a red light, cutting off a bicycle, and ignoring stop signs altogether. One style of driving I see more often than not is failure to look ahead and anticipate what’s coming. Drivers will accelerate as much as possible to pass others, run lights, and avoid stopping, only to have to slam their brakes when they (inevitably) come across something that causes them to have to slow down. I think that many people who drive like this also live this way, too. They go go go as much as possible, pushing past anyone who would dare get in their way, only to have to slam on the breaks when they can’t maintain their speed anymore. Perhaps their obstacle comes in the form of a health crisis, or a stressful season of life that they can’t cope with.

Soar above your problem

Soar Above Your Problem

Soar above your problem

Do you remember the first time you took the plane? It’s usually nerve wracking. You don’t really know what is suppose to happen, in other words you don’t know what’s normal. You notice every little noise, you might even question what the pilot is doing – as if we could do better.

You might have still been nervous then but seeing the sun bright and shinning above the clouds was an incredible wonderful sight.

We live in a society that praises busyness. We wake up in the morning, rush to go to work, get our work done as fast as we can and rush home. Then we eat fast or eat fast-food and go on with other activities before going to bed. And when we have a minute, we check our phone! I have to say I’m guilty of some of those but I’m trying to change.
