I’ve heard people talk about how turning 30 was a life changing event all my life. Turning 30 seems, for no reason in particular, seems to be the magic age when a person crosses the threshold into serious adulthood and the last ounce of youth left in you slips away.
I am not religious. That’s right, I said it. I don’t identify myself as religious, however I am definitely not Atheist either.
So what does that mean?
When someone asks me what my beliefs are, it’s not easy to answer. I don’t say, “I’m (fill in the blank)” and them just understand what that means. I have to literally explain what I believe. I’m often left feeling like I just made something up on the spot after I’m done explaining. It feels as though I need to be part of an organized religion for my beliefs to be taken seriously.
