Less Judgement, More Curiosity

Did You Know I Judged You For That?

Less Judgement, More Curiosity

This speaks volumes.

My family and I spent our Sunday afternoon wrapped in the warmth of great conversation, delicious food, and plenty of joy.  We visited friends who introduced us to their community Land Trust filled with beautiful plants, old-fashioned rope swings, a tree house, ducks, plenty of Serenity Now seating amidst towering trees, and even a friendly, coarse-haired emu.

But of all the things we experienced as we soaked in the much-needed reconnection time with our friends, that simple sign is what spoke the loudest.

Less Judgement. More Curiosity.

I took it in, and used several deep, cleansing breaths to allow the words to flow through all of me.  I told my friend how much work I’d been doing in the areas of curiosity-embracing and judgement releasing, and we both nodded in agreement about how the universe sends reminders to support our intentions.

Here’s what came to me. For me. And for you.

TRUTH IS…

I judge you if you’re the parent that gives your toddler a Coke.

I judge you if you speak negatively to me about your other friends.

I judge you if you’re severely overweight and still eat pizza and ice cream.

I judge you if you sleep around a lot (well…my definition of “a lot”)

I judge you if you say things like “racism is over” and “I don’t really like books”

I judge you if you are always late for shit.  Even your own shit.

ALL OF THAT IS TRUE.

ALL OF THAT IS ALSO WHY I pray. fast. meditate. practice Life Design. listen to my daughters. and my mother.

I am WORKING at HAVING a DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE with JUDGEMENT.

I SURRENDER my JUDGEMENT and REPLACE it with CURIOSITY…

Larie’s book reminds me to use less judgement and more curiosity about promiscuity.

Ivy’s blog post reminds me to use less judgement and more curiosity about women who’ve endured pain from weight loss/gain turmoil and body image concerns.

The work Ev’Yan does reminds me to use less judgement and more curiosity about self-exploration (and expression).

My choice to reframe my “flaws” reminds me to use less judgement and more curiosity about my role in my own happiness.

My best writing to date, when I truly surrender to Her, reminds me to use less judgement and more curiosity about women in deliberate motion toward clarity, confidence, and the courage to risk expression.

How will you embrace the Less Judgement, More Curiosity vibration?
