I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

SECOND CHANCES...


Today things were back to normal…WHAT EVER THAT IS…Nonetheless, my friends and I spend time with each other like we ALWAYS do over coffee; only this it was the ORIGINAL group that came together to give each other a SECOND CHANCE. I find it interesting how when we meet someone for the first time, we often create a defining image in our minds of who that person is. We may also determine whether OR not that someone is worth getting to know. Sometimes when an initial interaction is particularly uncomfortable or challenging, we can decide to close our hearts to this new acquaintance entirely. But being too quick to judge can cause us to lose out on a potentially wonderful, enriching relationship. First impressions don’t always give the complete picture, so if you meet someone who leaves you less than impressed; consider giving them a second chance. You might be pleasantly surprised. Everyone deserves to be given a second chance and I glad that we did this for each other today. I know from personal experience how painful it can feel to be misunderstood or judged and I know that we all have good hearts and want them to be seen. We have so much to offer each other AND when we shut each other out before they got to see who we REALLY are; it is VERY hurtful AND confusing. Hence, by giving this SECOND CHANCE, we are simply extending the same courtesy we would ask for ourselves. In this way, we set a precedent for OUR relationships: to allow everyone the freedom and safety to simply be human. If WE give each other the room to be who they are, where they are, they will allow the same for us…
