Today's lesson is about looking at yourself, not the outer self but the inner self, your personality, your actions and feelings towards others. Try asking who you really are, how you've treated others this year and most inportantly who have your hurt because of your words or action?
For me, the end of one year rings in a new opportunity to start over, to make changes within yourself. A few years ago, I took a hard look at who I had become and hated the person standing before me, I honestly didn't even know her. I was being cruel and mean to people for no real reason other than that the people I thought were my friends were also doing it. Deep inside I knew it was wrong but at the time, I didn't care and to this day I am ashamed of my actions.
When I decided to make a change and think for myself, I made amends with some of those people who I judged so harshly and came to find that I was judging someone I never really knew and some of them are really great!
Take the opportunity to get to know a person for who they are in the inside not for how they look on the outside, or for what kind of car they drive, how much money they have or what name brands of clothing they wear! All that fades away with time but finding someone who may be a true friend can last forever! Think of how many wonderful people you've passed over who could have potentially been good friends because you ignorantly judged them, were cruel or mean and make a change today!
