This is week two for my new series, on sundays we make lists, a fun project designed for fellow list lovers like myself.
this week's list regards belief: what we hold dear to our hearts...and what we can work on to make our hearts bigger.
I was a little surprised at how many of my beliefs are manner based: politeness, kindness and friendliness are important to my everyday life.
Here's my list (in no particular order):
smiling at strangers
please and thank you
personal space (like the classic song from The Police: please don't stand so close to me)
equal rights for ALL
young people are the future, so we'd better start treating them with respect
treat everyone like your best friend
dressing up a little more
saying i'm sorry
curiosity is better thank experience
the importance of mentoring
respect is two-way street
What I'm working on
there's so much to life i don't "get", but here's what i will work a little harder to understand
fundamentalism (any religion)
political name calling
the paleo trend
