It’s a matter of opinion.

This past week, my sister-in-law was down for a visit (Hi Linda!). On Saturday night a friend came over and we basically sat around drinking cocktails, watching basketball, and talking. At one point, the conversation turned to aspects of the Law of Attraction. I was explaining how we all choose. No matter what it is, we in some way chose that outcome. The hubby and the sister-in-law disagreed with me on one particular piece of what I was explaining. Now it doesn’t really matter what we were disagreeing on (it had to do with referees…) because here’s the big point, the fact that they completely disagreed with me was completely fine because…

It’s all a matter of opinion.

Yep, everything in this world is basically a matter of how you see it. It’s your opinion or your perception of a certain person, place, thing, situation…whatever. It’s all your opinion. And, here’s the bigger point…

You’re absolutely entitled to that opinion. And it’s not anyone else’s job to change your mind. Nor you theirs.

Now, those of you who knew my mother know that right now she’s saying (from her transitioned state) “BUT WHAT IF THAT OPINION IS WRONG!? What if they’re wrong?!” (love you mean it Mom!) The thing to remember is, they don’t think that opinion is wrong. In fact, they are just as convinced that what they are thinking is correct, as you are that what you think is correct.

So, let’s talk politics. (Groan!) Okay, let’s not talk politics, let’s just talk around politics. As we all know and have heard, there are some people out there that think we are all absolutely going to DIE if the Donald becomes President. And they truly believe that they are right. And, there are some people out there that think we are absolutely going to DIE if Hilary or Bernie becomes President. And they truly believe that they are right. Now, what do you think the chances are that either of those groups are going to convince the other to change their mind? I’m thinking they’re slim. So, why bother?

How about the next time you disagree with someone, instead of getting angry, or worried, or afraid because that person doesn’t agree with you, and instead of trying desperately to convince them you’re right and they’re wrong…you take a second to step back and realize that it’s all a matter of opinion. And then you just enjoy the debate, have a cocktail, and enjoy the end of the game. That’s what we did anyway…

In Munay….

I'd love to hear from you!
