She asked. I replied,
“I do believe in god. But on a more spiritual sense, I believe how we as people have the ability to control our lives…that a higher power, or god is not in control. That if we want something, we can acquire it by being focused, hardworking, and positive. It’s funny, how people only consider religion, having faith, or wanting god when things don’t go well or not the way they had planned. “I lost my job, please god help.” When one should be thanking god for all the things in their life that he or she has and ideally what they don’t. I try my best to not be that way; I pray when I need some uplifting or when I’m just having a really good day. But I don’t pray in the sense of having a wish list. What does that do? I pray when there are questions that I have no answers to, when I need guidance. And I try to do right by people, so that somehow, it comes back to me. I’ve found the perfect balance for myself between religion and spirituality. Considering both when one is not enough. Mainly because I don’t believe in everything the bible says, especially about sex, love, and marriage. I find it the hardest. But I will live my life they way I feel suits best, while still upholding morals and my dignity.”
I salute you. Besos.
