We’re all born innocent, I believe. But how long into our lives on this earth, before we commit one of those 7 deadly sins? No one informed me as a toddler, a youngster, pre-teen about these deadly sins. And another thing, I’m still alive! Does that mean I am still innocent? Who has the answers to these questions and who is keeping tabs on me? Dagnabit! ;).. and who made this list anyway?
7 Deadly Sins
Pride aka ego, is excessive belief in one’s own abilities.
Envy is the desire for others’ traits, status, abilities, or situation.
Gluttony is an addictive type desire to consume more than that which one requires.
Lust is an inordinate craving for the pleasures of the body.
Anger is manifested in the individual who spurns love and opts instead for fury.
Greed is the desire for material wealth or gain, forgetting about the spiritual.
Sloth is the avoidance of physical or spiritual work
“It’s like riding a bike, you never forget.”
I don’t believe that quote anymore, as I age.
There is many things I don’t recall how to do or what I did to achieve a positive outcome. Timing is every thing, it helps us forget and helps us remember. I ask a lot of questions of friends and family (Mom use to call me a, Question Box) and a lot of the time, the answer is, “I don’t remember.”
And what about the younger generation? Who think they know everything. I think I have forgotten more than they know, I just don’t recall half of what I know.
Memories are an important part of my life, I don’t live in the past, but I don’t want to forget it either. Because Mom had dementia and I do recall her frustration when she could not recall something. So, I will keep talking, asking questions and probing for answers. I love google!!..lol…
Keep sharp, be that 2 year old who constantly ask questions. You never know what you could learn, if you listen. But that is another subject, eh?. 😉
