My response to the 3rd prompt of the #Trust30 so day writing challenge by the Domino Project.

What strong belief do I possess that isn’t shared by my closest friends or family?

I’ve been thinking and thinking, and I can’t really come up with one. My family all have different beliefs. My closest friends all have different beliefs. I am very different from every one of them, but then, so are they.

My strongest belief is that my strongest belief can be challenged at any moment, and that I should not off-handedly dismiss whatever contradicts whatever I think I know for sure. Always keep an open mind. And then make a choice. There is not one truth. There are infinite truths. Infinite angles to look from at any situation.

All I wish for is clarity in the moment, and the courage and stamina to act on that.
