How does self-centeredness affect our relationships with the people around us?

Today, I share a short story from my life as a elementary-aged child about how this this dangerous mindset often comes to stab us in the back.

Hello! I have something I'd like to say real quick.

I feel I need to take the advice of Jaquelle on the Rebelution and take a "Digital Detox" from the majority of technology for a couple weeks. I feel like I'm not obsessed with social media, but I'm not exactly at the healthiest spot with my use for it either. 

So, it's tomorrow, and I have decided that this detox would be very healthy and wise. I feel like I'm not obsessed with social media, but I'm not exactly at the healthiest spot with my use for it either.

So, starting Sunday, I will be stepping back from internet use in the areas where I believe I do not have as much control as would probably be best:

- Facebook, Instagram, G+, and Twitter.
- Email on my phone (I will only be checking email from my computer and only once a day).
- Phone/Computer games of any kind.
- TV games of any kind (except with other people)
- Any internet use on my phone.
- Any internet use on my computer, with the exception of listening to audio on the internet (such as music, sermons, talk shows, etc)

I won't be announcing my return at all, but will just come back sometime after the two weeks are finished (hopefully Yoda wise! lol). Thanks y'all!

Is humility really just thinking less of yourself - or is it something deeper? In this short article, I give some quick thoughts on the subject of humility.

Normally on Wednesdays I write an article on my website. Well, today I would like to promote someone else's work that I just found extraordinarily well-written and very helpful! These are some things I wish I would have known when I started writing my book at 16 years old. Jaquelle Crowe is an amazing writer and her book comes out in April. Here are some of her tips for major teen-writing success.

Here's my website!

I actually like the Google Plus user interface. It's much more pleasing to the eye then Facebook or Twitter.

I will now be posting regularly on Google Plus! Tell your friends (especially if they don't know me and it would be really weird to do so. Believe me, it will be funny!)

My Google Plus Page is devoid of anything. Haha. Any suggestions on how to fix it?
