Good morning readers. We are smack in the middle of the work week. We know that because there are five days in a week so naturally Wednesday being where it is falls in the middle. We have made a mental note of it.
When we shop for new clothes each garment has a label that tells us the size and price. It is important for items in a store to be labeled so we are aware of its usefulness and how much we will need to spend if it is something we want. As far as I am concerned inanimate objects are the only things that need labels.
How many of us can honestly say we never make judgments at first glance. If you are honest and that goes for me as well, I can say that I too am guilty. Today's quote is, "What did you see before you attached a label."
We judge all the time whether we realize it or not. Not every judgement is big either. You might look at someone's shoes and decide they are not attractive and then your eyes begin to scan upwards where you can't help but notice the rest of the outfit that you may also find fault with. The scanning then continues and before you know it, you have ripped apart this person just because you didn't like their shoes.
We all have those crazy mornings when nothing seems to go our way. We are running late and put on the first thing we grab out of the closet only to notice a big stain on our pants when we get to work. Embarrassing yes but it happens. Does that mean you are a slob and should be labeled as such? Of course not.
Think of how innocently we do that and then watch the snowball effect. Making unfair assumptions is a loss for us. We may never get to know the person with the stain on their pants because we already decided we have nothing in common. We may never speak to the person with the accent, the one we mentally labeled, "speaks funny," because we have to work to hard to communicate.
Leave labels on clothes. Never attach a label to a person you just met. You never know what they have to offer and how your life can be enhanced. And by the way, I've definitely gone to work with a stain on my pants.
