Daily Prompt: Believe

If you have been coming around this here blog of mine you have seen a post or two about faith, religion, spirituality and that sort of thing. Yes, I am a believer, a believer in a loving and caring creator who is here to offer the world amazing things. God, Yahweh, Allah, Great Spirit no matter what your name for the creator is there is something to believe in if you are so inclined. (I love Jesus and I cuss a little, drink a little too).

Now I don’t believe in a creator who is destructive, mean-spirited and vengeful. We get enough of that from human beings who can and have used what they believe to marginalize people because they don’t fit in. It’s sad how many people have been tossed aside because their beliefs and faith aren’t what some people think it should be. I believe there can be a middle way or Via Media.

There is also the need to respect those who have chosen not to believe, although they seem to reflect the light and love in the god they don’t believe in better than those who believe. What you believe is your own business and what I believe in is a big table, a wide circle and there is room for more.

I love and respect you my blogging community. Believe it or not.

Something About Office Politics

Office politics is a reality workers face. It’s not fun. However it’s not the reason you exist for your job it’s the end user, the customer, the client, the student, the volunteer. People who benefit from your work should be the primary mission of anyone on the job. Yes politics is a real issue in any office situation that can discourage us but it shouldn’t deter us from accomplishing our goals or performing tasks at hand. Keep on working and keep the main thing the main thing and hopefully that will take care of business.
