Being better all begins with awareness...

"Judgment comes from a place of fear, disdain, or even hate." by Rachel Hollis from "Girl Wash Your Face"

No judgement here if you are "judgy." This comes from my ❤️ and a place of love because I want to be a force that makes a difference. I want to inspire positive change.

Part of the reason is because I used to be the most judgmental person so I understand. And I know change is possible no matter who you are or how old you are.

I'm a work in progress trying to get better every day. If you ever see my judgy side come out, call me on it please!!!

Here are a few tips from Rachel:

1. "Find nonjudgmental friends. We tend to become whoever we surround ourselves with. If your friends are full of gossip & vitriol, I promise you'll start to develop the habit. When you are looking for a community of women, look for ones who want to build each other up instead of year each other down." (or talk shit about others - those are my words! Rachel didn't cuss. 😁)

2. Police yourself. "If we’re already judgmental (and let’s be honest most of us are), we have to work hard on policing ourselves. When I find myself judging someone in my head, I force myself to stop and think of compliments about that person. By doing this I’m learning to look for the positive instead of reaching for the negatives.”

3. Deal with it & get honest with yourself. “Usually our judgment and gossip come from a deep well of our own insecurities. Get to the bottom of what’s going on with you. What’s making you lash out at others? The first step toward becoming the best version of yourself is being honest, truly honest, about what makes you tick.”

Thank you for this morning’s lesson Rachel. Today I will be more thoughtful because of your words. 🙏

If this impacted you, please share it so that others may be impacted too. You and I CAN change the world - one person at a time. 💕
