I am happy to say that I have a Great group of Diverse Friends...from old to young, religious to atheistic, from democrats to republicans, from hard core Western Medicine to Eastern to Naturalistic....And while this, at times, is hard, it has been a joy and I feel I am becoming a more well rounded person. For too long I was under the notion that you can only have a friend that is like you 100%, and in the end, this is nearly impossible. When you open your mind, and really listen without judgment (as long as they don't talk about killing, beating, raping etc...) It really helps in the journey of life. Not to mention that it can also help you understand the world in a more broad spectrum. So today I want to say THANK YOU to all my friends. Sometimes we don't agree, but that's okay...In not agreeing we see that we are living in a Free Society (At least freedom of thought). It is when we are silenced about are opinions (as long as we don't start name calling) is when we are truly lost.
Thought: We learn more when we open our ears to all those who wish to speak to us. I will listen, I may not agree, but I will hear you out.
I am so glad to have each of you in my life!!! XOXO ELicia.
Shit I want to Post
