Let go of judgments

Have you ever engaged in the comparison game? You've compared yourself to others—and found yourself falling short? Or you've compared others to yourself—and found yourself judging them harshly?

Neither of these is helpful, is it? Each one of us is unique. There's no one else on the planet just like you. Or me. No one who looks like you. No one who has my specific personality traits. No one who has the exact combination of skills and gifts you have. And no one with my particular experiences. And no one who's gained the specific wisdom you have.

How about if we give up comparison thinking? What if we let go of judgments? How might our lives be different if we let go of such thinking? If we focus more on acceptance, gratitude and love?

I think I'll put that on the top of my to-do list every day: Focus on acceptance, gratitude and love. I know it's a tall order. But I think I'll be the better for trying. So will the world! What do you think?
