The Sin of Which All Others Arrive.....
Have you ever been told to get off of your high horse?
"When one is too proud, it could be said they become 'prideful', at which point it becomes more of a bad thing, for along with it comes arrogance, impatience, and one just becomes annoying."
Pride is what creates division in society, create serious abundance for some, and can make a person seem like the biggest hypocrite alive.
Have you ever had that friend who always has to be right? I don't mean just thinking they are always right...I mean believing they are right, even when what comes out of their mouth sounds completely ass backwards.
Or you gotta love that person who can't take even the slightest of correction, even when what they are doing is completely nonsensical, not even to themselves, but of course they will cover it all up before ever admitting they are wrong.
It's impossible to even try to communicate appropriately with this type of person, and you have to wonder, where did it all come from?
The best advice I can give to these individuals is to swallow their pride, it's non-fattening anyway.
I have to wonder...So let's play out a random scenario given the fact we all know someone like this.
Bob is a Christian
Bob has a little habit of doing somebody wrong , and letting his prideful self get into the way of even uttering the words "I'm sorry."
So...If Bob can't even apologize to another human being, and believes he is always right no matter what, how does Bob practice the belief of Christianity by asking Jesus to forgive him for the sins he honestly believes he doesn't commit?
Now Bob looks a little bit like a hypocrite, doesn't he? Preaching all of this good news to people, but can't even follow through with his own self.
Pride is self destructive, human relationship destructive, morally destructive...Just flat out destructive.
There comes a time where you have to wonder, are people like Bob really a good friend to keep around? Should the Bob's in the world realize they are hurting the people around them? Or should they just continue with they way they are, I mean...Considering they are just SO great in their own eyes, do they really need anybody else? They are the best thing they could ever ask for, right?

I haven't written a blog post in too long of a time. Well I started college on the 8th, it's alright. I have so much work to do, however, so I haven't had time to write anything. Between work and school I need some serious time management. And for anyone who doesn't know I work at Target, woo :p
My poor baby Reptar got injured. Mr. Spike has been growing like crazy, and Reptar is a lot smaller. So as nature would have it, Mr. Spike went after Reptar and attacked him, poor thing has cuts all over him and his leg is swollen.
Life has been pretty frustrating lately. That's about it.
I will write more soon!

I believe strongly that you get what you give.
When you think about it, how many times has that homeless man or struggling woman come up to you asking if you have anything to help them out?
I have had many many run-ins with this situation, in which case I give when I can.
I will never forget one woman approached me and asked if I had 50 cents, I looked through my wallet, I only had a $5 dollar bill, my last bit of money and I needed it, however, I handed it over to her. She looked at it and gave me a huge hug and cried, following she had yelled to me "God bless you and may it come back to you 10 fold."
Well, a week later, I got a job. A job I have been needing for 2 years given my mother and I's terrible financial situation.
Regardless of what that woman was going to use the money on, I knew what was right. You get what you give, and in the end you will be greatly rewarded.
There are many things to give, and it's doesn't just have to be money.
It could be time,
There are endless possibilities.
There are many instances where you could make a person's day just by smiling and saying hi.I know that when I am feeling down and lost all faith in humanity, when somebody smiles and asks how I am at random, I feel a little more positive that this world still has many good people in it.
"There are those who have little and give it all.
These are the believers in life and the bounty of life,"
What if everyone truly cared about each other? Lately it's been the fad to put on this tough guy "I don't give a shit" attitude. I will admit I have my moments like that, but when it all comes down to it, I truly care. I care about the feelings and well-being of others, and I may not always show it, but I sure as hell try. That's at least a start: trying.
Think not of what the world can do for you, but what you can do for the world.
I recently read a post, and a man was talking about how he did not want to give money to a person who asked because they looked like a druggie. Well my question is, if you were in that same position wouldn't you want somebody to help you out? What if nobody helped you out because of your appearance?
This brings up another topic for discussion, society's obsession with appearance. I will save that for another rainy day.
I would be a very ignorant person if I thought this world could be peaceful.
It will never happen, not all of us are the same, we are all individuals as I stated in my previous post "The Eggshells of Life."
There will never be such a thing as world peace anytime soon. So with that said, why can't we at least try to make a difference in each others lives? In the grand scheme of things, this world is full of immorality. So let's take those tiny details and fill them with righteousness.
"One person can make a difference and everyone should try" - John F. Kennedy
The same way laughter is contagious, so is love. Make a difference in someone's life and watch the world around you transform. Give and receive, you'll feel great about yourself.
Now, what are you waiting for?
