Flip Flops……. Tongs? What ever you want to call them, the are a form of open toed shoe we wear on a hot humid day. Flip Flop is also something we do when we are for something one day, then go against it the next day. Flip Flop on a subject is something we all do, even without realizing we are doing it, although we throughout this Society do it more than we will admit to. Most of the time as we walk our paths of this journey through life, we will flip flop many things, just because we don’t want to be looked as different, than those around us.
Within this Society instead of doing what we feel and know is right, we tend to follow those around us, for fear of being made fun of or looked at as different, because we don’t do as they do. As someone we know close to us is doing something totally different than we are doing, we will then Flip Flop and do as them, regardless of whether we know it is right or wrong. We fear so much of what others think of us we forget truly of who we are, we get lost within the clouds of our judgement and then we become someone we truly are not.
The biggest Culprit of being a Flip Flopper is our Elected Officials, these Individuals will tell us one thing in order to get elected, then when they are in office, they do the opposite of what they said. We as Citizens not only have to be smarter than them, we have to make better judgements and research better of who we are voting for. True these Individuals that are running for an office come from a law background and know every loop hole for which to get through, but we the Citizens have to close these holes, before they can squeeze through them and Rob us of not just our pride and dignity, but take us for all our hard earned money as well.
” When you can walk your path of this journey through life without messing another’s shoe shine, then you can be at true peace with a job well done”
We in this Society have become complacent and lazy, and when we can take short cuts to advance ourselves we will do just that. We have forgotten what the words ” Hard Work” truly means and because of that, we won’t blink an eye to stepping on each other in order to further ourselves. This is a sad reality, but it is the reality we are living right now and it starts with the top, then works it way down. When those in power follow these ways and the ones below see them do it, now you have a Society that is afraid to step out of the box and be who they truly are.
Let the words Flip Flops stay with the form of shoe wear, let’s not as a Society be known as a Society of Flip Floppers, when we all be who we truly are, then we all can walk our paths of this journey through life in peace, while we all become better and stronger moving forward. This journey isn’t about stepping on each other’s shine, as this journey in the eyes of God our Creator, is about all of us sharing our love with each other, helping one another at times of need and when we do this, nothing but good will come to each of us, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.
” Flip Flops are a form of shoe wear, it is not about saying one thing and doing another”
” Being a Flip Flopper is not truly who we are this gets learned from somewhere, what is within all of us is love and is truly who we are”
” It takes more effort to Flip Flop, than it does to simply show our love from within with ieach other”
