There is a world of difference between judgment and sitting in judgment….

Em and I have had great fun in the last few days decorating our own version of a tree for Christmas this year. We decided to be inventive and creative and when I spotted this branch (!) lying on the ground in our nearby woods when walking the ‘boys’ recently I knew I had found the right thing. It was duly dragged home and the end result is shown above, although Em and I are still making and adding things to it each day. A close friend of ours laughed so hard when she saw it she nearly did herself a mischief, but she applauded our creativity and not for a second did she judge us, she never does.

In our daily round we make judgments every day, as that is what keeps us safe and moving forward, but this is a world away from making judgments upon others.

No-one can really know what another is feeling, what their path so far has shown or the future they see before them. We all have our own perspective and that does not necessarily give us an accurate view for another. Telling anyone what they should feel, think or do does not feel right. We can empathise, love, support and share our own stories but the key question is ‘What would you like to do?’

I commented to a friend yesterday that I had known unconditional love when I had stepped off a ledge and my bungee rope had broken. The friends who were there at the bottom with love, support and kind words whilst I dusted down and started to climb back up again are the ones I hold in my heart for a lifetime.
