Atheist Affirmation: Live for the day

Posted by jaystile on June 9, 2009

I’m glad I’m an atheist because I enjoy each day just a little bit more. Thinking about our ultimate demise and the lack of a fun-filled-unicorn-inhabited-skipping-and-prancing after life, I know we get nothing. Someone once told me that you can’t have love without Jesus in your heart. I would like to affirm that is just not true. I hold my wife a little closer. I hold back more harsh words. I cling to my daughters just a little longer. I stop and smell the roses. In fact when I let go of my religious beliefs life became that much harsher and that much sweeter. You realize that the only thing we have is each other and it is important to treat each other well. Life is good.
