Day 2

Yes, I know I'm late getting around to it. But I've been sick :(
Day 2: Something I feel strongly about.
I feel strongly about a lot of things. I'm against abortion and the death penalty. I believe 100% that Jesus died for my sins. I feel strongly about my goals in life: to be a teacher, a wife, and a mother. But what I want to talk about in this post is kinda on the abstract side. 

I feel strongly about the value of loyalty. Whether it's with friends, family, boyfriends, husbands, schools, teams, whatever... I strongly believe that once you commit to something, you stick to it. Don't tell someone they're your friend but not treat them like it. Don't talk bad about your family. Don't cheat on your boyfriend/husband. If you dislike something enough to be disloyal...you probably shouldn't be doing it.

Figure out what's important in your life and make those things a priority. And don't make someone or something a priority if they wouldn't do the same for you.

By writing this, I'm not saying I'm perfect. I've talked behind my friend's backs. I've hurt people. But that doesn't make it okay. They are mistakes that I've made and that I want to change. We all have our flaws, and we need to be aware of what we can do to make ourselves better people. Am I right?

Okay, rant over.


What's something you feel strongly about?

I totally agree. Loyalty is very important. By the way, I like your new layout :)

Well done! I 100% love and agree with this post.
Sometimes it is SO hard, but if someone else is not willing to be loyal, its time to let them go. Sometimes its hard, but we need to prioritize better :)

Love it

I feel strongly about how much I love your blog! :) But I couldn't agree more with your post- it takes alot to have the ability to admit you are wrong sometimes and admit your mistakes! But that makes you a well rounded person..so good!
