I have truly been feeling the love lately.
I think we are blessed to live in a society where free speech and independent thinking are valued and protected.
It is wonderful to know I won’t be judged if I hold a different opinion than my neighbor, and that someone I haven’t seen in years would never spew hate and call me names if I choose to voice my thoughts.
For instance, if I choose not to wear a seatbelt, I am grateful not to be yelled at for putting other people’s lives at risk. Because that wouldn’t make sense, would it?
I do wear a seatbelt. Just in case. It makes sense to me to do so! But it’s not anyone’s business if I don’t. I might get a ticket, but that’s on me! I’m so glad we can all agree on that. And I’m so glad that even if I wasn’t wearing a seatbelt, I would be guaranteed medical care.
Now, this might seem a silly thing to be grateful for. Thankfully, there’s no risk to wearing a seatbelt. If people were dying or experiencing terrible medical issues from wearing seatbelts, maybe I wouldn’t be so keen to wear one.
Where there is a risk, there must be a choice.
Speaking of choice, I listened to a great podcast earlier today and I thought I’d share it here! The link is at the bottom!
Whatever you choose, you should be able to critically think through the risks and rewards! Again, so blessed people are not counted as an enemy simply for acknowledging the existence of and wanting to know more about alternative methods! After all, we are all in this thing called life together, but we don’t all have to do things the same way! Not when very smart people are presenting very different information!
I love and respect all my peeps in the field and I’m thankful for all you do! I’m so glad you don’t take peoples’ hesitation in certain areas as a lack of trust in your intelligence or motivation! I know you love people and are doing everything you can to help! Thanks for allowing others the freedom to think through all the information being presented without doubting their intelligence, as well!
I’m so glad we are able to talk things through and respect each other.
Have a wonderful day, everyone!
