Life Lessons

judging

 

Recently I had a battle with my ego. It started with a water leak that was not fixed right the first time and ended in a rock throwing contest to see how much stuff we could bring up to insult the other. This was not my first time collecting these rocks and I was ready to win the fight! After being totally wrapped up in frustration for an hour or so I had to stop and take a breath.

I went to my Spirit Junkie app, which everyone should go and download right now, and the affirmation for that day couldn’t have been more perfect! “Judging others blocks me from inner peace.” BAM. That smacked me right in the face! I smiled and reread it a few times because that was EXACTLY what I needed to read at that moment and it really helped put things in perspective. I finally realized that this would not resolve itself with more rocks but rather with no rocks at all.  I was reminded that not everyone is perfect and we all make mistakes from time to time.

Don’t sweat the small stuff because everything is small stuff!
