“There is within each one of us a potential for goodness beyond our imagining; for giving which seeks no reward; for listening without judgment; for loving unconditionally.”
~ Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
That “listening without judgement” thing can be a challenge sometimes, can’t it?
I felt the weight of silent judgement this week where none was intended. Like a garden cultivator turns the soil exposing that which was hidden, the perceived judgement surfaced rejection and fear.
I recognized what was happening and shrugged it off as best I could, but not before I was presented with an opportunity to extend the same grace to another that I wanted for myself. Life’s like that. It’s how we learn.
Interesting conversations and observations this week with much to chew and ruminate on–one of those learning weeks.
Today I am weary.
Looking forward to a quiet day at home regaining my equilibrium.
