Thanksgiving Reflections


In a world filled with excuses and widespread unwillingness accept personal responsibility, I often reflect how I can be part of the solution rather than part of the problem. Sipping on my southern Old Fashioned, I realize that if we expect things change in the world and make it a better place, it is imperative we accept responsibility for our own choices and our own actions.

What I realized missing in my self-observation is judgmentalism. Every day, how much of our day is dedicated working improve ourselves when compared how much of our day is spent judging others for who we perceive them be?

Just as with the homeless on the streets in your community, things are most often not what we think them be. We are quick judge others, assume, immediately form our own opinions, eventually adopting them as fact.

We fail take the time research facts, we fail truly get know others, and we fail show compassion and understanding. We are quick reject others in hopes of justifying our own personal biases.

We have a story. Life is series of hundreds of choices every day and our lives are an accumulation of these choices. We all have stuff and the choices we make can be enormously clouded by numerous circumstances others cannot possibly understand. These circumstances can have a massive impact on our ability or inability to choose wisely.

As we move into a season of Thanksgiving, let us all make a commitment to refrain from judging. Instead, show compassion, kindness and understanding. Give others a break and let us put our selfish tendencies aside. Help someone. Be a blessing to someone. Provide encouragement to someone. You just might be the difference they need.

This was truly a heartfelt blog and I couldn't agree more with what you have said here my friend. We often help others less fortunate than ourselves, as that is the right thing to do. As we have been there before, and it's important that we always give back, even the littlest of things we can do can bring so much joy and happiness to those less fortunate.

So thank you so much for reminding us what this week of Thanksgiving is all about..

Seduce the mind and see what a wonderful adventure the body will take you on..

Well said! We are all guilty of being too quick to judge people.

    Quoting author51:
    A little more kindness and less judging in this world would make it a better place for all of mankind Hun.. This site and cyberspace, let alone is rampant with people who judge without knowing someone personally, let alone talking to that person..
    This is a time for giving Thanks, helping others and loving your fellow man. woman/child. None of us are perfect. We all have flaws. A l l one can do is attempt to be a better version of themselves, if we are lucky enough to do so, each and every day...
    Great post and reminder for us all here......xoxo
So true. This site and cyberspace is an outlet for anonymous judgmental expression ... it is a platform that exploits the brain-stem behavior of our species. All we can do is choose to be and to do better every day.
