What’s Your Sign?

Sometimes it feels like everyone is wearing a big chalkboard around their neck.  It’s like it hangs there, ready for us (society) to write our idea of what we think people are and how we define them.

At the same time that you are writing on their board, someone is writing on your board.

This usually happens when we don’t know their story; we don’t know who they really are. Without taking the time to get to know someone and all they go through, we make judgments.  If we took a moment, we might see things differently; understand who they are and what they are feeling.

But let’s go beyond that! Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just be ourselves?  No chalkboards around our neck, no labels.  We could just be true to who we are.  If we know in our hearts who we are, we can truly just be.

How can we accomplish this?  It only takes one person to start.

 

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”

― Mahatma Gandhi

 

Step 1:  ERASE your “board” –THROW your “board” away – Figure out YOU and just be.

Step 2:  Remember: let others be who they are also. No more us deciding who someone else is.
