This is irritating beyond no measure. I’m not talking about people not being able to learn new things; I’m talking about people who refuse to learn new things. You may never master a new skill or even totally get the hang of something, but at least try.
Some people go through life just coasting by on what they know and not adapting to the times. In this day and age you should at least know the simplest things about computers. My grandpa is 90+ years old. He recently received a new computer with Linux on it. His eyesight is failing him and he can barely see the screen. Does he give up? No. He calls and asks for help. This is a man who has never given up learning.
I’ll admit that there are many things I do not know. Foreign languages. Residential wiring. Soccer. Religion. Playing the guitar. Interior design. Fashion. The list goes on and on. Am I ever going to be satisfied not knowing these things? No. Will I ever truly understand these topics? Probably not. But I will never stop attempting to learn them.
I recently graduated from college. Not with one degree though. Not even two. I left with three degrees. And with 157 hours. This was at a community college, where only 60 hours are required to graduate. I will go back to college and get a bachelor’s degree in a few years. Why? Not because I need it, but because I want to.
Knowledge is the greatest gift God has given us. Once you have given up your quest for knowledge, you might as well die. Yes, you will probably fail a bunch of times before succeeding. Even if you fail 99 times though, that one success will make it worth it.
Here’s my challenge to you. Are you going to be one of those people who give up learning? Someone who just coasts through life? Or are you going to make yourself better? We have the power to make this world a better place. To elevate the entire human race.
Are you going to give in to mediocrity or make a difference to the world?
I been meaning to write this post for a few months now. I’m not quite sure what the delay has been. So without further ado…
Pro-life? Pro-choice? There is no difference. I don’t understand the reason this is such a hot-topic issue. Abortion is murder. According to Merriam-Webster online the definition of abortion is the termination of a pregnancy after, accompanied by, resulting in, or closely followed by the death of the embryo or fetus. Last time I checked, a termination that leads to death is the same as murder.
With this definition in mind, we know that abortion is murder. As we all know, murder is wrong. So why do I say that there is no difference between pro-life and pro-choice?
God gave us free will for a reason. He wants us to choose to do what is right. The media has brainwashed us to think that pro-choice has to do with a women’s right to decide if she wants to have an abortion. Going back to the actual definition of the word we see that it means for choice. Somehow this phrase got affiliated with the abortion issue and has remained with it.
I am pro-choice. You are pro-choice. Everyone is pro-choice. It is human nature to want a choice over being told exactly what to do. God created us pro-choice.
Now that we know everyone is pro-choice, what is the difference between pro-choice and pro-life. There is none. When a woman gets pregnant she has a choice. She could either keep the baby or give it up for adoption. A choice. Abortion is not on the list because as you now know abortion is murder and everyone knows murder is wrong.
Pro-life and pro-choice are the same thing. You can choose to either keep the baby or give it up for adoption. Abortion is not a choice because it is murder.
