Good morning, and welcome back to 100 Days of Blogging. Today’s card comes to us from the Self-Reflection category, and it states “What qualities do you admire in yourself?”
Now, I will readily admit that this is a self centered thing to be writing, but I didn’t arrange for the events that have been happening to have happened and I didn’t purposefully arrange the cards in such a way that I knew what topic was coming up.
But, anyway, the show must go on, and here we are. I’d have to say that the qualities that I admire in myself are my sense of justice, my stubbornness, and my willingness to fight for what is right.
My sense of justice is something that has been with me my whole life. It’s taken different forms, but it’s always been there. Earlier in my life I was a law and order conservative who thought that justice was making sure that everyone followed the law. Nowadays, however, I’m a leftist who believes that true justice is when everyone is equal and no one is oppressed. My sense of justice led me to the radical notion that all people were created equal, and that there are differences in how you’re treated in this country depending on how you look and how much money you have.
My stubbornness, while it might get me in trouble sometimes, still gives me the tenacity to fight for what is right. While I will reconsider my beliefs, just look at the above paragraph, I will stand against those that I believe are either actively or passively causing harm, and I will refuse to back down if someone keeps coming at me with arguments stating why they should be allowed to continue to harm people.
This leads into my third quality that I’m willing to fight for what’s right. While I will admit that I have not attended a protest, that is because my chosen avenue to affect change is through the law. I attended law school to do what was right and to fight for justice. I’m also known to not back down from a fight if it is something important.
So there we have it, some qualities that I admire in myself.
