Start Shootin’

I like giving gifts, but I like not spending money more

It seems lately that I have been tuning into my deeply held beliefs, more so than I normally do: Compassion, Kindness and most importantly – Temperance or lack there of at times.

These thoughtful moments of self-reflection seem right to me, they seem to help with finding my center once again

I would like to point something out though – Merely studying our virtues is not enough to become virtuous We could apply this same thought process to many aspects of our lives, couldn’t we?!?!

However, our minds and our lives tend to take the shape of what we think about throughout the day. What society and social media deem acceptable, what we are force feed to believe. Which when I pause to think about this, its pretty sad.

Daily Meditation:

We live in a society where virtue, intention and other “not cool to talk about” topics deserve more attention in our everyday lives than we tend to give them. Anyways

Long time readers may remember my dear friend Anne. Well, after a year’s worth of training with some dude in Nebraska (which is scary enough already) … Anne is back in Boston to finish what she started last year! If your guys wish to follow Anne this coming Patriots Day? Just follow the link below!

    The most amazing gift we can give is ourselves… not because we aim to please society, but because it is what we want to do.

    Anne is super awesome! When she gave herself to the Boston Marathon, she did this for herself… and consequently, she gave the gift of inspiration… and without asking for anything in return. Kudos to her! =)

    I agree with you about merely studying virtues. One of my biggest beefs with “religion” is that too many people spend too much time studying and not enough time loving. We all have the capacity to spread love……we just need to get out of the way of ourselves and let love shine.

    “Merely studying our virtues is not enough to become virtuous …” couldn’t agree more; though I am a Messianic believer, I am far from the virtuous finish line. In fact, I know, without a doubt, that I will not reach perfection or level 100 in virtue in this age. I agree that more the “religious” stream needs to show more love and less casting of judgement and so on. Have a wonderful weekend! 🙂

      My apologies for catching up with you a little late … In a nutshell: More loving and less time talking about loving – In whatever we choose to do.I hope you had a wonderful weekend as well – Be well this week and please take care. 🙂
