i realize this is easier said than done when there seems to be many negative stories on the news, tragedies that are avoidable, etc... but i do try on a daily basis to look at the world with an open heart and an open mind.
as i've gotten older and more aware...i realize how quick one can be to judge another simply based on appearance or what they may have heard someone else say about a particular person... instead of truly getting to know that person for themselves. i feel we all need to remember that until we are truly in a certain situation, we don't really know what we would do. it is so easy for us to say ..."well i wouldn't do that, or if that happened to me...i would do this". but quite honestly, i don't feel any of us could know EXACTLY what we would do in any given situation until we are facing it head on. and therefore it is NEVER our place to judge.
so i guess i am just putting a reminder out there... and definitely to myself....look at the world (and all those around us) with an open heart, we don't know what someone may be going through! xoxoxox happy monday everyone!
