But really, aren’t shoes important too? LOL I was *thisclose* to buying those shoes last night. There was a sale going on (but upon further reading, learned it was not applicable to said shoes) but even with a shipping discount, I just couldn’t do it. I’ve purchased shoes before for the person I was going to be at some point (kicky sandals that I never wore) and it didn’t work out well. Plus, Duty would have something to say about it if I did buy them. (Probably rightly so.)
(sigh) Maybe the nice lady at work will take pity on me and buy them for me at Christmas, hmm? (hahahahah I know. Wishful thinking.)
Anyway, back to troof.
Day 17 â†’ A book youâ€™ve read that changed your views on something.
Well, it didn’t so much change my views as help me understand them a bit deeper: “Women, Food and God” by Geneen Roth. I came to see how I can use my strongest gift (intuition) to understand my eating issues in greater depth. You know I’m all for putting stuff into action and yet the hardest thing for me to do is use my intuition around this. It’s my blind spot, I think. So, no changes but deeper understanding. (Which I am still lagging on actually doing. Two issues keep floating around: food and money. Both of them are upsetting me in an under-the-surface way. Not sure how or why but they may be related.)
Day 18 â†’ Your views on gay marriage.
As a liberal of the bleeding-heart kind, I am sure you can guess my views on this. But in case you don’t, let me share this from the outspoken Baddassonpaper’s blog and say that I am in 100% total agreement with her:
Simple really. ALL FOR IT. Why not? What do I care who gets married? Why is it suddenly any of my business who marries whom? I donâ€™t have any input on hetero marriages, so why do I get to make the call in homosexual weddings? Iâ€™ll never understand why this upsets so many closed minded people. Oh wait. Yes, I do. The freakin bible. Ugh.
Why is this a sin? Thats what I donâ€™t understand. Love is love, people. If a man loves another man, then Mazel Tov! Embrace that love. Cherish it. Love is a special gift. Itâ€™s rare and beautiful. Anyone who is fortunate enough to find it and keep it deserves the right to tell the world about it. Scream it from the rooftops. Announce it with pride and share it with everyone.
Couldn’t say it better, really. If you want to abide by Biblical teachings, have at it. Makes no difference to me. But don’t think that because you hold that view, everyone else should as well. This isn’t your little fiefdom, peeps. MYOB and control the one thing you can: your OWN life.
