Virtue Is Not Automatic
I talk about virtue. A lot. Maybe too often. But virtue is the foundation of a strong individual.
Without virtue, we will be trapped in our vices. We will give in to our whims, no matter how destructive or petty. And such a life, one of chasing emotional highs and short-term pleasures, is a life of failure.
But virtue is difficult. It is not automatic. To be virtuous means to actively pursue the good. To actively pursue your best self. To actively reject your comforts for something greater.
This week, I offer posts outlining the importance of persisting toward your ideal self. The more you push past your comforts of today, the more happiness you can secure tomorrow.

Momma’s Old School Burgers: The Best Diner In Purgatory
Are you looking for quality stories? Momma’s Old School Burger is about the best diner in purgatory and the people who visit and work there.
I started MOSB because I was always fascinated by the idea of purgatory. I reflected on myself: what would I be like if I found myself in purgatory? What would I need to account for? What would I be apologetic for? How can I reduce my sins here and now to make whatever journey comes next less unbearable?
MOSB is a story where characters explore love, faith, friendship, and life after death. Through this story, I want to provide you hope about your own life and the meaning you can give it.
