I found out over the past years that I'm a girl of extremes. I *LOVE* and I *HATE*. I'm passionate or I'm lethargic. I have a very difficult time giving 100% something I that I don't feel 100% about, you know?
On one hand, I love to be this way. I love to love. I love the joy that comes when I love something. I want everyone else to feel the same way! And then on the other hand, I don't love to hate. I don't love laziness in areas of my life.
There are also moments when I love something one minute, and I hate in the next. How many of you have heard me say that I love my job...and how many times have you heard that I hate it. I've definitely said both and really meant both. But, really, can't I just enjoy my job, and work through the difficulties? Both happen. Does it have to be love and hate?
I've been known to say I wanted to head back to school, get a degree, and work my entire life...and after a different conversation with someone I'm going to quit my job and stay at home for the rest of my life. Can't I come up with some balance?
And yet, aren't there areas in life that we should love and hate? Love Jesus and hate evil. Isn't that a good extreme? Or how about just general love? Isn't it good to just love things? I sure hope so, because I do. Maybe just tone down on the *hate* and continue on the love?
HATE - An adolescent word used far too much and not really meant.
