Luxe Life
Luxe Life

In today’s society we glorify money or at least the idea of it. We all want the ability to buy what we want and go where we want. I honestly believe there is nothing wrong with wanting this “luxe life”, the wrong only comes from loving this luxe life. Those who have money(like are rich, wealthy, comfy) are essentially financially happy but they often take that as true happiness. True happiness can’t be achieved by wealth but it is happiness when you only have $0.25 Cents in your pocket. Working hard and achieving financial success is a goal of all of ours or at least the financial part is because some people don’t want to work hard. We look at shows like The Kardashians, Gossip Girl, 90210, where money is literally falling out of people’s ass (like literally). These shows have fooled us into thinking that this is achievement and that is not the case. If you want to be “rich” so that you can drive a Porsche then, merp, by all means take your advice from Kim K.  If you want to be “rich” so that you can pay off your student loans and take care of your family, work your ass off.  2nd Timothy 2:3 states( Oh Lord, he’s going to the Bible),People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive… Basically, don’t love money because it is not promised nor are the material things you can get with it.  So my advice to you is to love the life not the money.

DAY 1: Damage does not mean broken.

Webster’s defines damage as causing harm or to cause problems in or for something. It also defines broken as shattered or fractured. Fixed is defined as being whole or able to work properly again. In life we are faced with many obstacles and those obstacle help shape us into the individuals we are today. Everyone regardless of age, gender, height, race, social status, and orientation has been through something. We all are “damaged” however just because we are damaged, it does not mean we have no other purpose. Just because we are damaged does not mean we are broken. We have the capacity and the capability to be fixed, just like your car or your favorite pair of jeans. Your car may have a dent or a flat tire but it can still be repaired. Your jeans may have a hole in them but all it takes is patience and thread. If your car is a little damaged or your jeans are a little torn, it doesn’t mean you’re going to throw them away; most likely you’re going to fix them. These items are just like the human heart and soul, you feel a little damaged or have scrapes and bruises but you have the ability to be healed. There are certain things that we must go through while on this Earth and those things only make us stronger. We have the power to pick ourselves up after being pushed down or clean ourselves off after dirt has been thrown on us. You have been through a lot but it doesn’t mean you’re done. The things in your life that has caused you to be damaged, hurt, or sad have not broken you. You can still be fixed. Damage does not mean broken.
