I often think that talking or writing about religion is a hot iron. Opinions are strong when it comes to that subject. And yet it’s something that affects and moves all of us in one way or another. Here’s a blast from the past about some of my thoughts in regards to religion, acceptance and the love we should share.
Life can sometimes get a bit overwhelming and in certain moments all we need is a little boost. Some inspiration or motivation from the outside. If you feel you need a little boost then help me out with my little project: Momma’s 21 Days Of Inspiration – Part II.
For 21 days you will get a daily email form me with one of my inspirational or motivational quotes starting October 1st. For me it’s a little test to see if I can come up with something like this for 21 days in a row and of course as well to keep myself inspired and motivated. It’s my challenge to see if I can give you that inspiration and/or motivation you are looking for.
If you are interested in joining in, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with Subject line “Momma’s 21 Days Of Inspiration – Part II.
I might get myself into dangerous territory here. But there is one thing that I need to get off my chest. Actually I already did a little while ago with this post. So just for being clear: I’m aware of the fact that religion is really important to many of you. I’m aware that you believe and that you gain a lot of strength out of it. I’m aware that your believes helped many of you through really hard times.
So I thought it’s time for some lists.
It just annoys me when people can’t accept someone else’s opinion, just because it is different to theirs. I am not saying that we all have to agree with each other. Not at all. I guess it would make life pretty boring if we would all think alike. But what is wrong in having a different opinion? Why do some people think everyone must agree with their ideas?
It is one thing to argue about a different opinion but getting to the point where you threaten others that is just plain sad… To say the least.
You don’t have to put a knife in front of me to threaten me. Your words can be enough. So choose! And choose wisely. I understand that not everyone tries to live after the three words acceptance, tolerance and respect. But I am still convinced that the world would be a much better place if people would incorporate them in their lives.
Before you speak, before you write, choose your words wisely. Think about what they might do to others and never underestimate the power of words.
