After taking “cookies” to a friend, and having lunch with another friend, congratulating her on her new job. I was on the public bus. I “perceived” the bus driver to be somewhat disheveled, and gruff. My perception was way off…and again I was judgemental. Perhaps my biggest flaw…The driver told quips at stops. He entertained with a quiet, animated voice. He made me smile, and laugh. I will add a note of gratitude to my journal…and again make myself aware of my judgemental thoughts…and how perspective is huge. I realize everyone’s perspective is their reality including my own. Doesn’t mean it is always right.
