i was raised in the church and taught to shun creative thinking...

and i think that was a springboard for me to pursue thinking that was out of the ordinary.

i keep an open mind and i think its the most free i have ever felt.

open mindedness does not nessescarily mean agreeing to every abstract idea that comes your way. its haveing the respect and wisdom to LISTEN. and give another thought a chance...

i agree 100% being open minded is being willing to listen. the simplist idea can be made to be sooo comlpicated.

well thanks so much Dariah! means alot to hear that!

I couldn't agree more! So many people think that saying your open minded means your game for ANYTHING! Yes, I'm open minded, yes, I'm a free thinker. I am mature and open minded enough to listen and not to judge without proper grounds. I am willing to try new experiences, though that doesn't mean I would try just about anything and everything that comes my way. I respect the decisions of others because what might not be of interest to me, might be to the next person. So Missy I think you're totally on the right track. Good for you!
