I read two posts yesterday that I found of great interest. They are both from bloggers on my blogroll. I feature blogs that are of interest to me, for whatever reason, and make no attempt to display only blogs written by individuals with whom I agree wholeheartedly. I read everything. I digest, I learn. I expect everyone to make their own decisions. It is not my job to think for anyone. Nor, of course, is it anyone else's job to think for me.
The two blog posts are Sanuk is not a four-letter word and He says that like it's a bad thing. They serve to illustrate just how far apart we can be as human beings in terms of what we expect from life and, more importantly, what we are prepared to give to earn what we expect as our due.
Life is complicated. Life is sometimes unfair. It is how we deal with life's ups and downs, its frustrations, its tragedies, that define us. Go... read the two posts. With which do you identify? Or do you see yourself at least partially in each?
To anyone who reads here regularly, it won't be any surprise that I agree with one of the bloggers more than the other, but I respect the right of any individual to think and believe whatever they wish, as long as it doesn't infringe somehow on my own legitimate rights or cost me money.
Go forth and learn.
