Child development

Growing up, my family played a lot of board games. I mean, we LOVED - and love - board games.
As I think more about, I think the games we played largely shaped the way I formed into who I am now. I reaped what was sown, I guess one could assert.
So, I think the game "Guess Who?" pretty much sums me up. It encompasses my quest for self-discovery, identity instability (maybe), and being an inquisitve and analytical person.
What childhood game do you think shaped you? How?

Ok, I've decided...

I MUST start singing again.

I have just now watched about 4 songs from Broadway musicals online. I now feel like my body is ready to burst with song. Literally, I am physically on edge. I know that I was gifted with musical abilities for a purpose. Social work can not satisfy this. Participating in worship one to two times a week can not satisfy this. I want more. I need more.

I am anxious to see how this is played out.

What do you feel are qualities or drives in you that are intrinsic, undeniable, unsupressable, and calling you to act?

A Mississippi Man

I just realized how much the culture here is affecting me. Over the last couple weeks I have:

Shot 4 different guns in a pasture behind a chicken house. (all pistols: .22, 9mm, .38, and .357), bought a Topsy Turvy, and planted squash, green beans, bell peppers, and hot peppers.
It's official: next week, I'm getting mud flaps.

Sometimes, I wonder incredibly too much what others think,

and sometimes I compare myself way too much to others,

and sometimes I wonder how I'd be different if I was just ok with me, right where I am,

and sometimes I think I'll "arrive" at that place of quintessential contentment.

I'm thinking contentment is much more of a vehicle than a resting spot.
