behaviour by ErinBird behaviour by ErinBird
"Your beliefs don't make you a better person. Your behaviour does." - unknown

I strongly believe in this quote. You can sit around all day thinking you need to do this and that, but those things won't happen unless you actually get up and do it. I can certainly relate to it anyway. I've been sitting round thinking I need to do a lot of schoolwork and improve my grades, but that won't happen until I actually put in the effort in and do them.
I also used to have a very ignorant R.E. teacher who would just pride himself on the fact he was a Christian and went round preaching the bible - but he never even followed it himself. He was a complete douche he treated others like utter crap to be honest (since I am an atheist, you can pretty much guess how he treated me..)  Anyway, I have no problem with him being religious, but he really should do the things he preaches and believes because that's what makes a better person. 

Gosh I really have been so busy! I haven't uploaded in about 2 weeks and this picture was taken before heading to work. sitting in a shirt with jeans outside in mid decemeber was not a good idea as I was freezing! that's why I look grumpy, I was just really cold ahahaha . Don't worry - one more week of school left until the holidays and i'll have more time to take better photo's. I'm really that happy with this photo :/ ah well.
I'm British so I spell 'behaviour' with a 'u' in it, sorry Americans.

Well, behavior is linked to believes, principles and way of thinking and as well as there are people who behave in certain way according to their believes, some others would pretend to be a kind of person aren't to achieve something, in wich case their behavior wouldn't necesairly shows the kind of people they are

yeah, but I think to an extent.. personally, I believe that actions and behaviour shows a lot about a person as it's the beliefs and thoughts they choose to act on.

Well, that is true to an extente as well, you also have a quote that says: "You are who you are when noone is looking"
Taking this one as true by logic, it would means that the actions that people do may differ when there is someone is looking at them and when they is not.
Therefore, the behaviour and actions of a person wouldn't shows entirely the kind of person he or she might be.

so true but we cant have a certain behavior without a particular belief. and that belief being strong or weak, right or wrong... makes a difference that comes to us and to other people in form of behaviOUR :P no problem if we have even a few spelling mistakes untill we believe that we can still convey meaning to someone :D
yes having a belief never assures what type of person you are but your behaviour sure does provide very fair and practical demonstration of what type of person you are and how good believer you could be. there could be many racist, fanatics and over-acting religious people out there who can just tell others what to do while they themselves never did it. ignore them :D and believe me our behaviours without a belief are like a bird on a wire... its a driving force... can be called as the force that helps keeping us in equilibrium
and not to forget...... stay warm :) :rose:

this is truly in my opinion one of the top 10 quotes all people should know. also, it's too bad u met a believer whom talked the talk but didn't walk the walk. I would say I believe in God n Jesus, but at same time, I struggle in my daily walk. also, we canadian's spell behaviour with a 'u' too =D gotta love being national cousins - yay for the commonwealth! =D I wish you well with school, and your efforts on things in life =D wish you quite well overall, and look forward to seeing holiday photos =D

Hugs to ya Erin :hug: u rock =D

aw thank you! and ah I just need a break from school also! During my break in October, I felt so creative and made good photos, but now I lack the time and motivation to make any. Hopefully some good ones will be made soon (:
