Know What You Believe.

November 6, 2012


Erin Schrader

Today’s post is going to be short and sweet.

It’s the one day when there are much more important things to be doing, other than reading blogs.
Like getting massages.
At least that’s what is on my agenda….
Oh right, and that one other thing going on today…voting.
My hope is if you are willing and able to vote today, you are.
My other hope is that you know why you are voting the way that you are.
That you have confidence in that check mark, you’ve done your research, and you aren’t just choosing that person because it is the last political sign you saw before pulling in to the voting booth parking lot.
You see, before this week I was a very “I’m not going to take a stance because I don’t know enough to take a stance” type of person. For lack of a better reason, it’s because it was easier to be that way.
Or so I thought. And then I read this post over at much love illy and it made me think. I want to be educated. I want to have confidence behind my reasoning. Heck, I just want to have reasoning for my reasoning. I don’t want to be a shoulder shrugger who hasn’t positioned herself with enough wisdom to be able to answer a simple question. I want to know why I believe in what I believe.
Whether that be politics, religion, or why I think off brand mac & cheese is better than Kraft.

So I guess, let that be your challenge for the day.
Know what you believe and stand behind it.
But then remember to be wise with what you know.

thank you Raven for this little gem. 

And as always—no matter what you believe, be respectful of everyone.
