How Good Found Me In A Bad Neighborhood

Make no judgements where you have no compassion. — Anne McCaffrey

Good News of the Day:
“It occurred to me a little too late that I was in a sketchy part of town. In anticipation of making it to my massage appointment, I had actually gotten off my bus five blocks before my stop. I was young and clearly a college student…I stuck out like a sore thumb in the southern town. Yet, even with my fingers trembling I was convinced that I would be perfectly safe, that I didn’t have to rely on anyone for help. “It’ll be okay Priya,” I reassured myself, “You’ve dealt with 2,000 pound horses, so a dangerous person is nothing to you.” In this real-life story, a young woman describes stumbling into a rough neighborhood and encountering two strangers who opened her eyes to the beauty we miss when we make superficial judgements about the people who cross our paths.

Be The Change:
Observe your own judgments as they arise today, and experiment with consciously trying to step away from them.
