I love creating. I feel we were created to create. In the past year or so I've spent much of my time starting things, managing things - creating things. But I've noticed that I found my identity and worth in creating, in what I did - I placed all my value in how productive I was on any given day. I still do. I feel like a failure when I haven't spent my time wisely. While I still believe that we were created to create, I think I believe that we were created to first and foremost love. I want to spend a little less time creating and a little more time loving from now on. John Mark McMillan said "I don't think people go to their deathbed wishing they had worked harder, or done better at their job. I think they mostly think of other people. Too often we begin to look at people as a means to an end, to gain things. I think in the end, though, what we really want is those people - not what we're using them for." Most of my thoughts pertain to how to become a better writer, better thinker - but I want to start thinking about how to be a better brother, son, friend.
