Recently I have found myself becoming more focused on just, Living life to the fullest. After countless days of rest from graduating from school, I have found myself seeking something more. Though I can’t put my finger on it. I have spent many days enjoying the nice weather going in and out from my house door but learning nothing whilst I do it.
But today I have learned something special that I know will help a lot of people out there. This morning I woke up prepared to go on a morning walk with my mum. So, we went out the door and so began the walking. If any one of you live in the rural parts of your country you will realize that the ground is a perfect pooping spot for dogs!
While walking, I am one of those people that like to look down at the ground for no apparent reason. And just as I was walking, I saw one of those unnecessary bundle lying on the ground in front of me. I knew I needed to avoid it. Before I was even an inch close to it my mum said:
“Watch out, don’t step on it!”
And I was like:
“I know. I’m not stupid.”
Then my mum replied(something along the lines of):
“I know. I am giving you a warning, not anything that describes your intellect.”
That struck me. I realized it was me who was at fault, as hard as it is to admit it. Nobody likes to be wrong and I can tell you truthfully this morning walk was not the best despite the fortunate weather! I found that it was me that believed I was stupid. A disappointment. A failure.
Though other people may have made it clear what they perceive of us, direct or in other indirect ways. More often than it is us that make a judgment of how others see us.
I made a judgment that my mum thought I was stupid. But really it was me who thought that she thought I was stupid. So, it was actually me who is at fault. Sometimes we assume things that are not always right, though it may be obvious otherwise. Still, it is better to not assume, as hard as it is already. The brain can do a lot of things within a second.
Hope you guys enjoyed this little life lesson. Let me know what you think and are you learning anything in your life?
As always see you in my next post! 🙂
