Thoughts Of The Day 05152022

There’s a lot going on at the moment. It seems most of it is bad.

The shooting at a grocery store in Buffalo has a racist and hate-filled overtone. May those who lost their lives be remembered and those who survived have comfort.

Thoughts and prayers are bullshit unless some real action towards a solution is found. It’s an insult to victims and survivors of gun violence in my mind.

Control and power are making some drunk and causing others much pain and suffering.

Women deserve better and they should not be controlled by men and other women.

Love and peace seem to be losing the day. May they not lose in the end.

A cool-down would be nice right about now.

There’s so much more going on out there This list is getting kinda long.

Describing yourself is something everyone should do. Self-reflection tells the world an important story about who you are. Listen to those who care about you because they know who you are. Don’t be afraid of imposters syndrome. The people who matter most, matter the most.

Work on loving yourself as much as you try to love others. I should heed these words I am writing more. I am my own worst critic but you know if God can have some grace for me, I should do the same for myself.

I might be a weirdo and one of a few people you might know who is a person of faith or religion. One thing about me is that I don’t come across as preachy or holier than thou. Well, at least I hope I don’t. I think God is best represented that way.

Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Vigil are three important services during Holy Week. Making time for them is as important in the journey of the Lenten season as Easter itself. For me, it’s my belief that being in Church is important the other 51 weeks out of the year. The same could be said for Advent for Christmas.

The only way to grow in faith is to be in one’s spiritual community among other practices. It is by doing this that one hopefully is close to being perfected in their spiritual life.

When sharing what one thinks about stuff it’s always a risk. Saying what you need to say is a 50/50 thing, agree or disagree. It’s those moments when there is fear of offending and possibly fracturing a friendship. As a reforming people pleaser, this has been something I have dealt with. Perspective plays a big role in how you see the world and what you think.

No two people think alike and hopefully, they can come to a place where it’s OK to disagree and remain connected. Speaking up about injustice is a good thing but it doesn’t come without a price. It’s my hope that what I say is done with respect for myself as well as others.

Opinions are opinions sometimes they make sense other times it leaves people scratching their heads. I am guilty of this, a lot.

What you say can change the world including your own.

The thing about problems is that they are meant to be solved or attempted to be solved. Usually, there are other problems that follow. Solving a problem or series of them can help you accomplish great things. Sometimes resolving problems can get you home or get you to the next thing in life. Whatever your problems are I hope they get solved or become less.
