"The wise know the value of friendship, and that it is wisdom to be a friend to oneself too." -A.C. Grayling
Welcome to Week 8 of "What I Love About Me!" hosted by Twins Plus One, Three Times the Fun and Twingle Mommy!
Here's how it works -
Write a post about what you love about yourself this week and then add it to the linky list below. This is intended to be a time and place for each of us to stop criticizing ourselves for a few minutes and actually remind ourselves of the characteristics we are proud to own. So go ahead, look in the mirror, and see yourself through your loved one's eyes. Notice the beauty first. Here's your place to shine!
A few simple guidelines -
  • Please follow the two hostesses. If you are a new follower, please comment so we can follow you too! :)
  • We'd love it if you posted the button and the linky list, but it is not mandatory. The button code is on my left sidebar.
  • Feel free to link to your homepage or your specific "What I Love About Me!" post. We want this to be a fun, relaxing hop so we'll accept all links as long as they are family-friendly. Thanks!
  • The linky will be open all week so feel free to link-up on your own time!

 What I Love About Me this week: I am a humanist.
What does that mean? Well, most people know that humanism is associated with the absence of religious belief, but that's not what I want to talk about here. What makes humanism so meaningful to me is that it means that I always try to put a person's humanity first. As one of my favorite songs says, "We all bleed red..." This philosophy affects every aspect of my life. It's important to me that I recognize my shared humanity with others as far more important than race, religion, sexuality, political stance, etc. Humanists believe in people. My humanism helps me to be more loving and forgiving toward others. When others make mistakes and hurt me, I try to remember that I've probably made more and been forgiven many times by the people I have hurt. Being a humanist means that I am always striving to be a better person than I was yesterday, to learn new things, and to teach my children to do the same.
