Blogging 101: Exploring Alternative Beliefs in Your Writing – Two plus two equals four?

Life seems pretty straight forward, 2 + 2 = 4, right?   What seems so simple, so rudimentary, kindergarten basic, is actually a very complex question.  But wait, 1 + 1 = 2, 2 + 2 = 4, again, simple, right? Today’s Blogging 101 exercise is a writing prose. Write about a topic from two different perspectives, call it Ying Vs Yang. As writers, it is important to recognize that there may be more than one interpretation of any situation. Ensure that as you are writing, you consider how you will address these alternative sets of beliefs.

In every situation there may be more than one interpretation, or right answer. Ensure that your blogging considers all possibilities. Photo by James Wheeler from Pexels.

We spend our life questioning everything, why is the sky blue, just listen to a three year old. Yet, on the flip side, we fail to question, many aspects in our lives that just seen so “normal”. Ok, normal may not be the best label, but, you know what I mean.  It is interesting when we stand back and begin to not only look at life but through life.  What is the backside story for why the neighbor broke up or your colleague was promoted and not you.  It is truly insetting what you observe when you take a minute to look around us.

Although 1 + 1 is 2; and 2 + 2 = 4. 0.25 X 16 equates to the same.  There are many interpretations of the truth and the realities we lie, and most of the time we are too scared, preoccupied, distracted to see the truth.  Many times we can’t see what we are not willing to  to accept.

So lets pause, take a moment and observe.   What did you see?
