Monday Moment: Pass (on) the judgment

dalai-lama_love-absence-judgmemtn-quote-w-tag

This quote aligns a bit with last Monday’s quote, and is not a bad bookend for last week overall, with Wednesday’s post about getting it all right, all the time. As we dive into spending time with people important to us this season, it can be tough to separate the love from the judgment. Why does he always do that? Why does she always say things like that?? Possibly good questions, but also ones you may ask every time you get together. So maybe, for a second, set it aside. Give it a rest. Remind yourself, I love this person, regardless of their imperfections. And while you’re at it, take a look in the mirror and do the same for that beautiful face there. After all, what we judge in others is often not totally different from what we are harshest about in ourselves. And, standing next to love, it can start to look pretty small – at least for that second.

Inhale, exhale, love. Have a great week. :)
