There are some things that are written in concrete in my mind. There are some things that are written in sand in my mind. Then there are some things that just float around in my mind with no place to go. Examples of some things that are written in concrete for me would be my name, my birth date, my family, my favorite color, or that I would never watch the Smurfs movie in 3D. Examples of some things that are written in sand for me would be my enjoyment of reality television, the idea of that college degrees are the smartest path to success, the death penalty is a justified punishment, or my strong dislike for the Toyota Prius. Examples of some things that continually float around in my head would probably scare you so I will leave those for another day. Pretty much every time I am introduced or re-introduced to information is a chance to change my mind. Small correction my strong dislike for the Toyota Prius is written in concrete.
52. Change my mind without insulting it
You want to learn about politics sit in the middle of a discussion between a Republican and a Democrat. Want to learn about religion listen to somebody whose Jewish discuss it with somebody whose is Catholic. Debates are ideal forums to hash things out as long as they stay informative and don't turn into emotional personal battles. Whatever you adore about your cause should be enough to make others believe in it without disarming whatever you consider to be your opponent. There are tons of things that I believe in today that I may not believe in tomorrow. You want me to vote for you then tell me what you stand for; tell me what you want to accomplish without telling me what your opponents can't. Sucky people push their beliefs by any means including insulting other people's beliefs.
Short and concise?....ok short and choppy is a little closer to the truth. Actions speak louder then words so I won't repeat my statements about how I will get better or start blogging everyday. I am just going to post this and continue about my biz. Until next time :)
