At a time that is not this time

people will be good to each other, no matter their differences.

I just watched this video , and was amazed by the different cultures coming together, sharing their differences in a positive way, and focusing on something they have in common.

Why are people in the world so incredibly intolerant? Why is it so easy to recite the golden rule, but so seemingly impossible to actually live that way?

Personally, I think we should just love people because they are people.

I am not saying we should be blind to poor decisions or anything like that, but can't we even love people who make poor decisions? Can't we love people who believe something different than we do? Can't we love people who look different? 

There is so much animosity in society that it makes me want to hole myself up in a mountain cave, and befriend only the mountain animals. Especially the ones that won't eat me.

On Maturing

It is 100% over-rated.

I don't mean that we should all act like we are 13 years old again. I don't want to worry about boobs, braces, boys, or bratty friends.

I am glad I know how makeup should be applied, that Payless shoes are just as cool as the name brand, and that I don't have to check in with my parents when I get home late at night.

I simply mean that we should never get to the point where we take ourselves too seriously. 

Laugh at yourself. Dang it.

Befriend a teenager enough to remember what it was like to be one.  Listen to some old school Brittney Spears or Spice girls, and see if those old feelings and dance moves come rushing back again.


Pay your bills. Be good to your children.  Love your other half.  Don't get traffic tickets....and laugh when you forget.
