Three Things For This Week

Continuing my series of random thoughts and happenings that occurred this week based on an idea I read on The Write Balance blog.

Three Little Things To Share

1

Two Months In a Row

Recently I have been challenging myself to add a new post every day to this site, and this post completes my second month of doing that.

Part of me thinks, how can I ever keep this up? And part of me thinks I never want to stop, because it has been so much fun making myself do this, finding different sources of inspiration for topics on dating, love and relationships and meeting new people through the comments here.

I’d like to think I can keep posting for June too. I usually wind down for the summer. Maybe I should wind up instead πŸ™‚

Judging

I read a blog post and had a bit of a comment exchange with a conservative preacher, who seemed to be having a dig at everyone from people having sex before marriage, to single mothers to homosexuals. That kind of bible thumping human being bashing really gets my goat.

I have to say I’m not religious at all, so I hope this doesn’t offend you if you are. I defend your right to believe in what you like.

As long as you let others have the same freedom of thought and not shove your beliefs down my throat by quoting bible verses at me, it’s okay with me.

I was raised in a vaguely Christian family, but now my philosophy is just a “play nice, do no harm (maybe I’m turning into Google LOL), live and let live, have compassion, don’t judge others” kind of thing.

And then oops, when I thought about it, wasn’t I judging this guy? Maybe he just wanted to do good too even, if I disagree about what good is. What can I say? I’m a hypocrite. He’s still very misguided in my view, but he’s not murdering babies, at least I hope he’s not. He is speaking badly about huge swathes of the population on the planet though.

And you’ll never get me to say that sex between consenting educated safe-sex-practicing adults is a bad thing. It cheers up many a dull Sunday…

Law of Attraction/Disaster Preparation

Talking of conflicting views, I was looking at the types of books that are popular on the Kindle store the other day, and it struck me as funny that there are so many books on prepping for disaster being sold in America (not many in the UK – we seem to be happy that disasters are never going to happen to us….) and also an awful lot of books on the Law of Attraction.

If one half of the country thinks you make things happen by what you expect, and the other half is therefore inviting disaster by focusing on it, that can’t be good can it?

I always liked the idea of the law of attraction. All that energy buzzing around making me win the lottery and people meeting the loves of their lives after thinking about exactly who they want. But it’s a bit like religion, I just don’t really get it. Must be why I never win the lottery then. Nothing to do with it being a 14 million to one chance!

Can you tell I’m all for practical action? If you want to meet someone, it’s probably best to get out there and make it happen.

    Way to go on your consistency in posting! You have a very easygoing, and easy-to-follow writing style, and it is fun to read through your thoughts. πŸ™‚

  3. Rally L.C. says:

    I would love to be as consistent as you are and try to post every day, I am trying hard to be on my schedule. If people would stop judging each other we would live in a veritable state of Utopia. You have to know who you are and to stay true to yourself. You would be surprise to find out what people here in the US are doing when it comes to be ready for a disaster. πŸ™‚
    Hugs,

      Thanks for sharing Rally. To be fair I think you do have more natural disasters in the US than we do – we don’t have tornadoes, earthquake fault lines, forest fires (not hot enough), hurricanes of much magnitude, tsunamis – just a lot of rain so we do get some flooding and ash clouds wafted over from Iceland πŸ™‚ I think I’d rather move location than worry about disaster all the time though…

    Congratulations on maintaining high consistency! Blogging even once a week is still something I struggle with. You should be proud!

  5. Well done for sticking with it and posting each day. It is not easy to do so congrats.

    It is hard to not be judgemental, even as we say that we are, naturally judging other people. A tough balancing act huh? lol
