Makes you question.

My role and place on the internet is something I have contemplated on and off for many years.

How much information about myself should I share, free for anyone to read, watch, see?
At what point do I simply become an internet whore? (If I'm not already...?)
Though I enjoying writing and drawing in notebooks do I really want people (and even friends) do know as much about me through Facebook, Twitter, Blogger, Word Press, Last.FM, and all the other sites I'm on ? Is there still any mystery around who I am when you take away all these profiles? Yes. I know the answer is yes because it is my that decides what goes on these sites, it is me that is the brand manager and strategist for.... me.
(insert long rant about internet, people, suicide rate, depression rate, privacy, etc.)

Either way. I am here. On the internet whoring my soul out to anyone that will give me attention - nah, I'm not really that bad at all.
One day I'll write a book - one of those ones with pages made out of crushed up trees, till then...

BUT The Social Network is indeed a movie I'll be watching; they are going to make millions with this flick!

God has a better way for you.

I have a couple of notice boards in my room. One has pictures, postcards, writings and musing. The other pictures and name of people etc regarding prayer.

One the first pin board is pinned an A4 print out which speaks on failure.

We all suffer failure and we all need to deal with it. What I found and have stuck on this pin board I read often. It helps to remind me that things are bigger than I what I feel at any given time. That what I perceive as failure now God can potentially use positively latter.

This is what my print out says:

"Failure doesn't mean - "You are a failure",
It means - You have not succeeded.

Failure doesn't mean - "You accomplished nothing,"
It means - You have learned something.

Failure doesn't mean - "You have been a fool,"
It means - You had a lot of faith.

Failure doesn't mean - "You don't have it,"
It means - You were willing to try.

Failure doesn't mean - "You are inferior,"
It means - You are not perfect.

Failure doesn't mean - "You've wasted your life,"
It means - You have a reason to start afresh.

Failure doesn't mean - "You should give up,"
It means - "You must try harder.

Failure doesn't mean - "You'll never make it,"
It means - It will take a little longer.

Failure doesn't mean - "God has abandoned you"
It means - God has a better way for you.
