If you have an opinion…

The sun sets on another day…

The sunset was amazing as I discussed items with my children. They happen to be with me at the moment and it is always warming to discuss anything and everything with them. Family should always be at the top of your list of things in life, and I am proud of my family, no mater what.

I have been going down a list of items a friend posted, and as I have It has been interesting looking at each item and putting a few thoughts behind it or changing the list a little. When it is done, I will publish a new list and we will see how that is compared to the original. Tonight’s thought: “If you have an opinion, you better know why.”

It is an interesting thought to consider that many people don’t know their own thoughts, it is also difficult to understand how some people do not see their opinions as just that, opinions. for every opinion there is another opinion that may or may not contradict the previous opinion. Why? We are the sum of our experiences, and our opinions are born out of those experiences. So if you have positives or negatives, you need to understand why you have them.

I was recently talking to someone and they had lots of opinions about everything, but when I asked questions, well, those opinions seemed to falter and disappear instead of being something tangible. All this statement asks, is if you have an opinion, you should know why. Really why. Not just because, but is it real, is it true, and is it everything it should be. 

I won’t go any further, I think we all get the point.

So as the sun sets on another day, we all have opinions and they may all be right, but make sure your opinion is truly yours and own it every day. Don’t let falsehoods, partial truths, or other peoples opinions be yours until you really understand, and in the end, make your opinions the best you can, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy your thoughts because they are yours…
