#SoCS – Living

26 Comments

Living is really only part of what we do on this planet, isn’t it? When you think that most things (and if you ask some, they’ll say all things) we do affects something or someone else, our “living” goes beyond just existence. Our attitude has a lot to do with how we affect other people … and other things. Are things any less important than people? It depends. The rock you kick down the street because your bored and you’re walking (have you ever kicked a rock all the way home from school or a friend’s house? I used to do it all the time as a kid) may not seem like much of a big deal. But if you get mad and kick it and it breaks a window, your attitude has affected a person, not just a thing. Unless the window is attached to an abandoned house, in which case it probably won’t matter to anyone. But what if you kicked every stone out of someone’s gravel driveway? Okay, I’m pushing it here, aren’t I?

So I’m making up a new word. We don’t just “live,” we “attitude.” Like it or not, my new word is “attituding” as in “Stop attituding!” Feel free to use it any time. My treat.

(Half a point for making up a new word?) hehe

  1. I love this so so much! I try to attitude in a good way, a positive and happy way. I’m not always as successful as I’d like, but my intention is to keep getting better at it.

    Thanks for that reminder! =D

  2. How about gradituding? If I kicked a rock all the way home, I’d feel responsible and have to keep it. (I have lots of shells and rocks living with me.)

  9. I’m going to co-opt your new word and morph it into “badituding”. I agree. The attitude we bring to our living affects others who are living, also.
