Think and express your thoughts, but if they are contradicted do not feel defensive. Everybody is allowed to express his/her opinion, even when it opposes ours.
INSTEAD: LEARN from that opinion. It will make you grow and think smarter.
Yes, because us, the free thinkers, question everything and worship nothing. Always, accumulation of ideas and thoughts. Wonderful world in my mind!
This is one of my favorite comparison images of free thinkers from a religious fanatics. And so true!
Thinking requires the utilization of the brain in a coherent manner, scientifically if possible, but everyone can do this, in philosophy, art, sports, gardening, carpentry, in every profession and activity we practice.
Have you ever noticed that feeling of well-being after a good laugh? I have. I try to feel that way everyday.
Sometimes when I’m riding my bike alone I make myself laugh remembering funny situations I might have experienced in the past. I laugh out loud, another cyclist might pass me by and notices I am having a good time. He laughs too and smiles. This happens pretty often, and I like it when people around me are happy too. It’s just right!
