Matthew Matheny, A Compassionate Loan Consultant with a Big Heart for A Homeless Veteran

If you’ve ever tried to purchase your own home, you can understand the high emotional and financial cost the entire house hunting and purchasing process can have on a first-time buyer. Just the mountain of paperwork and demanding credit history checks, alone, are almost insurmountable obstacles for any anyone no matter where they live. Simply put – home ownership is seldom an easy process. But what if you had to add the fact that you are homeless? And you are a military veteran with post-service scars? AND you are short on the money needed to secure the loan or guarantee the contract? If this were you, I’d say there was a real good chance you weren’t going to get into…

High School

Days feel like years, years feel like days. Mornings feel like nights, nights feel like mornings. Friends feel like family, family feels like friends. One time the cycle will end, and the next chapter of life will begin.

The Legacy of Mister Rogers

Cue the memory: I stare at the television screen at this simple-mannered man. He uses his puppets around a set that is supposed to look like a home and neighborhood.

How can such a bland and unexcitable television show give such hope and self-worth to the soul of…

For the Student with Social Anxiety

Many know the feeling all too well. It’s without logic, it’s without reason, but the dread is real, and it manifests itself. It makes class presentations a death sentence and walking down a school hallway nothing short of balancing on a tightrope. Those ice breakers that begin every year break nothing but a sweat, and when the teacher says “find a partner!” you practically feel your heart drop. To some degree, almost everyone has felt this social dread in their academic career. But within that majority exists those who live it every day. Social anxiety: two words that plague 200,000 Americans annually. Of that 200,000 are copious sitting in a classroom, which being an extremely social environment, can escalate the…

Be Kind to Yourself

Self-love has grown to be a hot topic in this day and age. Honestly, it can be harder to practice kindness to ourselves than it is to practice kindness towards others. Despite this, we should all strive to do so, with the understanding that outward compassion starts within our own entity. We love others to the greatest utmost capacity when we learn to love ourselves. But self-love is often confused with superficial action, like taking yourself on a shopping trip, running an extra long bath, or getting a makeover. All these things can make you feel good physically, however, in the long run, they are not sustainable mentally; not to mention financially. Self-love means being patient with yourself when you’re emotionally drained or strained. Self-love…
