Probably that convictions can be a dangerous place. I’m happy to live in doubt and give voice to whatever wisdom wishes to emerge.
I belong to a group of “nasty women”. They speak out for women’s rights, the environment, BLM, and other social issues. I agree with many of their causes, but am reluctant to publicly contribute because it could affect my job. There are a couple of issues that I personally do not agree with, but I don’t speak because I don’t want to make waves. Long story short: I need to speak.
I am perfectly imperfect just the way I am. 🧚♀️
This I like, Blossom
I’ve learned to give convictions to myself to love myself, to look after the inner child who continues to look for help. My new conviction is now to focus more on my faith and spirituality
I have been playing with the concept of Radiating Love”. I want to be a person that radiates love.
Those I’m not yet aware of.
Usually, I tell my truths. I was called the “Bushman’s Lawyer” at school by my form teacher. He put me in debating and on the student council to channel my fight for the underdog and for whatever was just.
The more I learn these many decades on, the more I know I do not know as I once thought I did. I am at peace with that. It’s hard work to be so certain of so much a lot of the time.
Those things that emerge with the continued unfolding.
We need to do something about climate change yesterday, both individually and systemically. In my unpopular opinion, we shouldn’t be doing any activities that emit large amounts greenhouse gases in the air (including cow farming, driving fossil fuel cars, factories, etc.), and we should have figured this out forever ago. We need to get this done NOW, or we’re going to die as a species, along with many other species. Why even left-wing politicians don’t see the deep urgency behind this is beyond me.
Don’t know because i’ve given voice to all that i know of.
I deeply believe people should be vaccinated, if not for themselves then for others.
I am very concerned about family members who refuse the vaccine and have already gotten Covid. They are now long haulers, and one may die. There is no reasoning with them.
I’m seeking ways to voice my concerns about climate change, without much success yet.
I think living are convictions is the best way to give them voice. It’s the difference between preaching and teaching.
This is one I need to think about more – for now I’ll share this –
Convictions are the compasses of life – that keep us moving in the right direction.
I find that part of the power of prayer for me is that it is an opportunity to literally give voice to my deepest convictions daily. I suppose only the future can tell what new ones may be just beyond the horizon.
I think I have a lot to work on with this one. I often don’t voice my convictions for fear of making waves. Holding steadfast to them and being confident in myself could change this but I hadn’t really though much into it until now.
