while adding a goal I realized something while reading someone else’s entry. His entry opened my eyes to a system that is not inclusive. I am glad I was able to identify this conviction and then act on it.
THANKS! (want to see more go here) 4 years ago
I believe I would be able to forgive and I strongly believe I would try to forgive and I would expect that I would forgive. I found a story about someone who did:
I wonder if anyone else has the conviction to forgive? 4 years ago
what are my fixed or strong beliefs?
How can I figure those out and then live them? I know I live many of them every day but there are others that I don’t live….. I have to explore what they are….??4 years ago
I just wish I was able to live by them!
Maybe this goal will help me to achieve them more often…. 4 years ago
...to have the confidence to do or say what you think is right even when other people disagree.”
My beliefs and principles on some subjects differ quite a lot from those of the people around me. I’ve never been a conformist, and I have always questioned tradition for traditions’ sake. I don’t believe in limits, and I do believe that a lot of the things that people follow blindly need to be questioned.
I have found myself on many occasions backing down so as not to rock the boat, and compromising my principles out of fear or insecurity… and I always feel so, so disappointed in myself afterwards. 4 years ago
One of my problems, and I am aware of it, is that sometimes my personal views and philosophies do contradict each other. Maybe I’m expecting too much. Afterall sometimes it takes a lifetime to figure out what you stand for and why. And it changes along the way. A little contradiction is alright, life would be boring otherwise, but surely when it comes down to it it is up to individuals to be consistant in order to make a difference to the world.
Contradiction is fine, hypocrasy isn’t and I know that I fall into that trap a little too often.
I know that I should use local shops to support the local economy. I know I should not buy cod or non-organic cotton or fruit and veg shipped in from abroad. I do know all this in principal and that there are very good reasons for making certain consumer choices but a combination of expense and, let’s be honest, laziness does mean I don’t always make the right choice.
Which is why I’m stuck between wanting to go to Florida this summer and knowing that I should choose to forgo the long haul flight as my part towards reducing carbon emmisions. It’s not exactly Sophie’s Choice is it and the answer should be automatic. But I really want to go. (Incidentally, a little leadership on this issue from Mr Blair wouldn’t go amiss. It’s not even as though the end isn’t in sight.)
I guess I could always wait for global warming to turn Britain into a flooded, baking riviera and sunbathe in my back garden. 6 years ago
