This is a blog by Patricia Johns. She’s a fantastic romance author, one of whom has my highest respect. I wholeheartedly agree with her blog post, and whether you are a believer in religion or not, *I* believe we should do our best to leave the world in a better condition than when we started it, whether that is at the cost of our own happiness or not.
I don’t like to post about religion too much on my page, as politically I’m an Independent and have some left-ist views on several points, plus I like to keep this space open for all readers and would never want to alienate someone based on their non/religious or political views. But I am a non-denominational Christian, and am unashamed to admit it.
One area Patricia points out is that at the end of the day, it isn’t what makes you happy, but what is right. It should also be said, that I don’t believe in a “soul points system”. It’s not how many good deeds one completes, it’s the heart and intention of your good deed, and I believe that Patricia is someone who implied this as part of her original blog post (but I’d have to officially ask her). It’s the intention of knowing you need to be doing the right thing when temptation is mild or the strongest it’s ever been. Helping someone because you want to do your best to make *them* feel a little bit better when the world is getting them down, because you know life is tough and can be harsh.
I hope you enjoy her post, it’s short, it’s sweet, it’s thoughtful.
Happy Monday, Precious Readers!

Thanks so much for the reblog! And yes, you assumed right–I don’t believe in a “soul points” system, either, but in our intentions. ❤
I’ve really enjoyed reading your blog and tweets over the years! 🙂
