Yesterday, I actually wrote a few notes to myself!
I had too…I wasn’t necessarily dealing with personal and internal issues in the most fair way.
“You can’t just keep over-analyzing you’re parents. It’s time to take responsibility and take control of your own life…to be a man.”
“Stop trying to put yourself into a position where you must complete everything in one day.”
“If you take life seriously serious, then go work out…exercise, for the sake of Faith, Family and Future.”
We should write notes to ourselves.
We should write like we are from the outside looking in.
We should tell ourselves the things that are too hard to even speak out loud.
We then should read it aloud to ourselves….we must have the guts to tell ourselves:
“Dear Self: you’re acting like a kid, grow up!”
“Dear Self: you’re being a jerk, get over yourself!”
“Dear Self: you know you’re really just scared. Just admit it and stop faking it!”
The presence, participation and affirmation of a Father is like an invisible wi-fi signal that transfers data of masculinity from man to boy.
“Wreck-It-Ralph” is an awesome movie! If you haven’t seen it, you’re missing out!!!
I can say that because I know cartoons and I certainly enjoyed the movie, from the storyline right down to the heavy-laden lessons and morals.
It seemed like “Wreck It Ralph” pushed the truth of identity as the primary point between the main characters and the villain.
Pretty soon, I’m going to actually use the movie to teach a lesson in our youth group on the topic of Identity!
Don’t be surprised if you see the lesson outlined here on Cartoon Daily News! The opportunity is just too good to pass up.
I’ll keep you updated on this neat little project.
Let’s just say…“I’m gonna wreck it!”
I finally got around to finishing up an illustration project for a writing associate.
She’s writing a book about bath time for children and she needed some child friendly illustrations to push the point.
This is only one image that’s an example of what I drew for her.
While drawing, I had to think about what images would fit in perfectly with the story. Thankfully, the writer of the book already did 90 percent of the guess work, so all I had to do is be creative about what she requested. Her book is in progress and should be published soon!
