Brad Pitt: I Have Only one Life, Here and Now

Brad Pitt  - I have only one life

I got brought up being told things were God’s way, and when things didn’t work out, it was called God’s plan. I always had a lot of questions about the world, even in kindergarten. A big question to me was fairness. If I’d grown up in some other religion, would I get the same shot at heaven as a Christian has? When I got untethered from the comfort of religion, it wasn’t a loss of faith for me, it was a discovery of self. I had faith that I’m capable enough to handle any situation. There’s peace in understanding that I have only one life, here and now, and I’m responsible.

I can't stress how much I

I can't stress how much I enjoy reading the views of Brad Pitt every time I do I appreciate the man even more than I did before reading it. I wish more people were like him and Angelina Jolie both of whom I have come to respect as much more than just an actor and actress. Even if things in the tabloids have any grain of truth to them I hope Brad and Angelina can work things out be cause I can say this much is true they are both a one in a million and chances of them ever finding someone who can fill the others shoes is very unlikely. I hope they work stuff out I'm sure they can find a way. It's always good to see two outspoken atheist working together to do as much good as these two do.

Taking care of our health is

Taking care of our health is of utmost importance. Whether it's physical or mental well-being, we must prioritize self-care. In times of grief, seeking support becomes crucial. That's why I value resources like online grief counseling, such as the one provided at It offers a convenient and accessible way to navigate through the challenging emotions and stages of grief.
