“Today I am determined to see.”
Commit today to seeing a radically different reality.
Look for a reality where kids DON’T grow up being bullied in school, because the kids who’d be bullies, don’t need to be.
It’s easy to love the people who we’re already attracted to (or, in my grammar-perfect household, to whom we’re attracted).
But everyone has some redeeming qualities, and today your task is to really LOOK.
I just read an article about a prison where the inmates are given the chance to study and earn college degrees. That institution has a less than 2% return rate.
Those are people who didn’t grow up in the same world that I did, but they’re getting a chance to change their world, and that of their children. And 98% of them are grabbing that chance with both hands and hanging on for dear life.
It’s hard to change our brains, but it’s so rewarding. Suddenly, there’s a lot more to love out there, in this crazy, busy, beautiful world!
Three or four times today, stop and really LOOK. Try to see the truth under the surface “reality”. Think about that person who you hate to be around, and SEE the person under those mannerisms that drive you crazy.
And remind yourself, everyone is worth loving. Everything is here for a reason. But you have to train your brain to really LOOK, before you can see that deeper truth. Find it!
