I had a thought today:
You know how parents can love their children unconditionally? What if we use that model and love one another unconditionally?
I am going to try to remember that this week. I want to take others for who they are. I do not want to point out their faults or complain when they are not the person I want them to be. I am going to simply love them for who they are and what they are trying to do. I will see the good in them and the simplicity of their intentions. This is what I hope others will do for me. Too often I think we personalize others’ actions when really, it’s not about us at all. This week I will try to be less self-centered and realize, it might not be about me.
I do not want to interrupt anyone, make snap judgments about anyone, or try to manipulate others’ actions. Live and let live. See the good.
Don’t you think this will bring peace and harmony to us all? Especially with the little annoyances we let ourselves get so wrapped up in each day. Let those annoyances go. See the positive. Change your point of view in different situations.
I am going to challenge myself this week to change my outlook. Will you do the same?
