What I Still Believe: Day 8 of 31 Days of Posting

Evaluating your beliefs is part of life. I'm not necessarily talking about religious beliefs, but certainly evaluating them is important as well. Here is Ann Lamott's great talk related to this topic:

My own thoughts about myself, as I stand in the middle of middle age are the se: 

Do my beliefs stand up to scrutiny?
Is what I have believed true?
Have my beliefs caused someone harm?
Have I lived up to my beliefs? 
Do my actions support my beliefs? 
Why or why not?

Some things I've set aside in the "I'm still thinking about it" box. Some are emphatically on the KEEP list. It's good work for the soul. 

"Do not let what you cannot do
keep you from doing what you can do."

John Wooden
