Black Belt in Inner Peace contains short journal entries I have kept and continue to add to, as I go for a black belt in inner peace by endeavoring to move through each busy and sometimes stressful day with greater grace and ease.
Number 19: Judgments
There are days when I can’t help but love everybody, from strangers on the street to the people I work with to my friends and family. Life doesn’t get better than a day like that. But today (oy vey) my ego got loose, and I seemed to be judging everyone … like the guy in my yoga class who never returns a hello … the “silly” clerk wearing that polka dot bow tie … the technical support representative who was “a waste of time” … on and on, culminating in me judging me for judging them.
