A Few Thoughts

My faith in humanity has been restored…well, mostly. We have much work to do!

I’ve lost a lot of friends in the past 4 years. Not because of a difference of opinion, but because I was berated and ridiculed for mine, or told I was wrong, or that I just didn’t know something. I will not ever tolerate that shit again. I still have a few Republican friends who are mature enough to express their opinion without tearing down someone else’s. I don’t care about another person’s political affiliation. I care about their actions and their words. Trump has brought so much ugliness out of people and has done so much damage. Regardless of anything good his base thinks he’s done, he’s done more damage than anything else. It’s time for that to end and for us to try to heal this broken country’s heart.

I was sitting in front of the tv when the news broke of Biden’s win. Tears of joy, I tell you! I know that Joe Biden is not the answer to all of the problems in this country anymore than Trump was the answer, but I know that Biden has enough intelligence to listen to scientists and other experts in their fields in order to make decisions for our country. Will he make mistakes? Definitely. He’s human. Will he lie and spin the truth every single time he opens his mouth? No. He has more integrity than that and I have hope… For the first time in 4 years, I have hope for this country!

I’ve not written in so long it was difficult for me to write this post, but with some practice (and some healing) I will get back to my old self again! I hope you’re all doing well. Please be kind to one another! 

Peace & Love,

Want Respect? Show Some….

I am not a political person. I am not a religious person. I have my opinions and I have my beliefs. Just as you have your own beliefs and opinions. If you want me to respect YOUR opinions, then you must also respect mine. Keep it to yourself if you can’t be respectful. Simple as that.

When I say I am not a religious person, that doesn’t mean I’m not spiritual. I have certain beliefs and I choose to keep my beliefs to myself. Why? Because my beliefs are my personal choice. That makes them personal and I keep personal things to myself. I wish everyone else would too. I believe everyone has the right to his or her own beliefs but that doesn’t mean that they need to share. They don’t have to take every opportunity available to tell people all about it and push their beliefs on others.

(That’s the biggest problem with social media. Everyone feels the need to tell everyone how they feel or what they believe….. That’s a blog post for another day!)
