The Monkeys

We can be so quick to judge others. Really, how often do we pause and try to empathize with someone before we react? My guess is a lot less than we probably should. Just think of the many times in any given day that you feel as though you haven't received the consideration you felt entitled to.

Try to keep this in mind throughout your day today. Remember that you have absolutely no idea what another person has going on in their life. Regardless of the value you personally assign experiences, problems, etc. know that every person has their own unique "point system". Odds are they are acting based on the events in their own life rather than thinking about you.

Have some compassion, exhibit a little humility and acknowledge that in the GRAND scheme of things – you are likely not the center of the universe. Get over it and have a

Happy Tuesday!

I am once again humbled by your "brilliance" and your ability to cut to the chase. You always have your pen to the pulse of reality and very often say the things we feel and for whatever reason can't express. We should all take a moment and send this link to someone in our lives -- but only after we have truly read it once again.
