Well hey. This one’s short. Just started the Spring semester so I got a ton of other stuff to lose my mind about, but I’m taking a quick break because these are highly important thoughts to share.
So I’ve done a lot of thinking about this whole life thing for my first 30 years (just made it through 3 decades, happy birthday to me) and, among other things, one of the main struggles I’ve seen that we all face is how to make beneficial decisions for ourselves, hopefully for others at some point, and ultimately for God (which includes the other two usually,) if you believe. It’s important to note that I don’t think people are always trying to make beneficial decisions for themselves, much less others, much less God. That’s ok, though, you can still use the formula, just use it when you make destructive decisions. No one gets left out here on this blog. I think I should also state, though, that from what I’ve observed so far I’m not sure you necessarily need God in your life to make beneficial decisions or even be a good person. To me, faith is a lot more to that, but that’s for another post.
Anyway, I think I’ve come up with a pretty good motto that should help us out. Goes like this:
Not always, but not never either; and not never never, but not not always either.
Yup, that should clear things up. Some solid, simple logic to live by, just stop and consider that for every situation and I think you’ll eventually find the answer.
Ok, I should probably go work on some homework or get a better job now. Go in peace.
