So, I've been frustrated with news media and politicians since I can first remember hearing them open their mouths (fear mongering assholes). I also, however, get a little frustrated hearing intelligent people who are good friends, honest, decent people, speak as if such propaganda is fact. I then wonder if I am doing the same thing with my beliefs. I then decide that, no, everybody else is wrong and I'm right or else I wouldn't believe it. I also decide that I must question information given to me more thoroughly before accepting it as an absolute. I then decide that I have no authority to decide absolute.

  1. I love the quote in Strictly Ballroom when the dad says, "They lived their lives in fear." And it echoes. I often quote that as a way to remind myself to live with adventure. I don't want to live my life in fear. I don't want to be told what to believe and how to act. I will decide that for myself.
