Check out my other blog: Arugula Addict! I'll be writing about my journey to becoming a healthier person.

Hmmm, having two blogs means I don't have as much time to invest in only one, but that's okay. I love journalling!

Been spending the past three hours digging through my past. Over ten years of emotional "gunk" and it has not been fun. :-( The only positive part of this is that I am realizing more and more that my choice to set up boundaries over the years was one of the best choices I could ever make.

I was chatting to a good friend the other day and he mentioned he'd been doing some research into why girls say there are no quality guys around these days. He surveyed a bunch of girls and asked them what they were looking for in a guy. A strong spiritual walk, genuineness/honesty, and consistency were the top three on their lists. I wholeheartedly agree.

I may not have grown up with a good father-role-model in my life, but one thing I have learned. I cannot tolerate hypocrisy. I will probably always struggle with that, because, like everyone else I know, I do things that I know I shouldn't. I am learning, though, that there is a difference between growing emotionally and hypocrisy. Someone who is growing emotionally recognizes they have areas they need to grow in and works on improving those areas. A hypocrite, however, lives their life in a different reality where they are unable to connect with others and they go around thinking the problem is with everyone else but themselves.

Each of us is on a journey towards wholeness. It is not just a journey of spiritual healing, it includes emotional healing also. For some of us, the journey may take a lifetime. . .

  1. We have been discussing this journey here the last week. How everyone is on a journey, what "qualifies" them for baptism, how much we should "expect" of them, etc... Really it is true - we are all on this journey and we all have our own struggles. Praise God that He always walks with us. He never gives up on us.
