Allowing ourselves to move through adversity, to go through the process of understanding, to take ownership of the entirety of our lives, while releasing the parts that we can’t control and not knowing what is on the other side, but knowing that we will get there, is the freedom that we all seek.

Sharon D's insight:

I was just talking to my son last night about the need to set your own goals and priorities. At 19, he is already seeing how so many people chase someone else’s vision for what they want out of life. He wants to be successful but not for others, for himself. He is concerned with also being a good example because he thinks that regular, everyday kids don’t get to see success (up close and personal). They only see, idolize and are bombarded with the fame of athletes, actors and/or recording artists....

Sharon D's insight:

For me, life is a continuous, learning journey, full of highs, lows and in-betweens. Going through this current experience, I had to ask myself, “Who are you becoming?” When we spend large amounts of time with people (or things or ideas), we should wonder about who we are becoming in this process. For me, it’s important to grow, to learn, to be kinder, to be more compassionate. Am I moving toward that or away from that? If my answer is “away,”

Turn On For What?

Turn On For What? | creating-thinking-betterliving | Scoop.it
She was talking about a handsome man and I was talking about this particular person's ugly ways. My friend could not believe that my new take on this person was not at all focused on his beauty. There is nothing about this person that would make me disregard his hideous ways. I don't care how good looking this person is.....

Clearly, some people can be turned on by looks alone. I guess, for me, character trumps all. My true sex organ starts in the brain. What about you?

On a good day, we remember to appreciate that we woke up, that we actually get a chance to make good or be better (in some way). Today, we have another opportunity to get life right, to try something new, to be better, to think through, to show compassion, to promote peace, to love unconditionally or with a little less fear.

 

Today we can be better.

Sharon D's insight:

People also use the site to create a best-self image. I’ve also had several conversations with people who find that Facebook tends to make them depressed. I have often responded that they have fallen under the illusion of many people who have decided to create a “perfect-life-image” persona. I do not believe that people show themselves in very transparent ways on Facebook. They show themselves in ways that they would like to be seen or known.

 

There are several researchers who have been studying this phenomena and it has a name, “Social Affirmation Theory.” Social Affirmation Theory posits that people have a need to feel good, worthy and of value.....

Sharon D's insight:

Common Sense Rules in Wisconsin

 

The Supreme Court justices, with their decision, concluded that there was not enough time to recover identification from the thousands of voters who had already cast ballots. It was just too late, indeed, for the implementation of a brand-new Voter ID law.

 

Many citizens were not necessarily against a new Voter Identification law. What they were against was the fast and quick implementation of a new law, after so many people had returned absentee ballots and before full promotion of the new law could be implemented across the State. A local paper, The Cap Times reported earlier this week that “there were still as many as one in five voters who did not know an identification card would be required to vote in November.”

Sharon D's insight:

There was no mandatory “do-good” activity as one member was hesitant because she needed help paying the rent. The pastor, Laura Truax, assured the congregants that the money was theirs to be used "for good" as they saw fit.

 

Truax is no stranger to this activity. She has done something like this before by taping 10 $100 bills to and under church pews to demonstrate the idea of undeserved grace. She clearly believes in the power of "doing" to drive home the parables in the bible.
