Live with conviction

This may seem to be odd post, but its something that continues to stand out to me. Having been raised in a society where the only conviction ever shown was how much you drank following your football team loosing; (or the DUI conviction on the way home from the pub) I didn't really have an appreciation for how such a self motivation could ever be a good thing. That said, the other day I was checking out my Uncle-in-law's Facebook profile. He lists his political views as moderate, but his religious views as fanatical. It got me thinking - whatever you choose to hold to, don't do it half hearted. Life is too short for wishy-washy pasty white attitudes. Sure we may fight more - but surely we want to better or lives and humanity at large?

Its coming up to the big 3-0 for me soon. Im hoping that is only the first 30 years, but in either case, I figure its about time I actually think about life for a change... ;)

Ah yes, the old mid-life crisis post! Good for you Rene. I remember having those same feelings when I turned 30. They were horribly depressing....

No, he listed his political views as moderate to liberal and his religous views as fundamentalist. Which I think is really cool.

Glad to see you posted to your blog! Now go comment on mine, I gave you some love on yours, go give me some love :)
