We have all been told to “never judge a book by its cover” but what about never judging a person based on what you see? It is no secret that people can be quick to judge others but have you ever stopped to think about what they maybe going through? One of the greatest gifts in life, is life itself, so why is it that we live in a world where we spend time judging each other instead of loving one another? Enjoy the life God has given you and spread that joy to others. Think for one second how great this world would be if there was less judging and more understanding?

judgingIf we spend time assuming we know the whole story about ones situation then we’re wasting our time! Know that you never know the whole story. Even your best friend keeps things to himself/herself. What does it even matter if we know the whole story? What should matter is that we know enough to love and respect everyone for who they are. Quit trying to change people, quit trying to turn people into puppets, and start accepting. People need empathy when faced with hard times. Imagine all you miss out on by wasting your minds capacity on nonsense. Life has so much to offer and your mind controls how you feel, think, act, and react so make sure you’re filling it up with all the positives in life. What you feed your mind will completely set the tone for your day, week, and even your life.

If someone treats you bad or snaps at you have the love to know that it is probably not personal. They are reacting to something else going on in their lives and instead of fighting back just have respect and know it’s at that moment when they need you the most. When we dig deep to understand that at times when people put on a brave face it’s at that moment when they hurt the most. If you catch yourself constantly trying to figure everyone out then work on changing your mindset. Our lives should not consist of trying to figure out everyone else instead our lives should be spent figuring out our own self. Changing your mindset will change YOU which will then change your discussions with others, relationships, and compassion you have towards people. Change how you think and watch how fast your life will go from hopeless to hopeful.


Constantly judging is not destroying the one being judged but rather the one judging. It will eat at you and eat at you until you lose yourself to this unhealthy way of living. If you spend your day on the negative side of things how can you live a positive life? We were put on this earth to be happy, free, and loving; not negative and spreading that negativity to others. Success comes from our mindset so if your mind is set on judging and bitterness towards others how successful do you think you will ever become? What dreams and goals do you have for yourself? How do you want your life to look in the years to come? Take your energy and brand yourself into a new you!

Jim Rohn said it best “Personal development comes before the fortune” and every day I find this to be more and more true. Unless we are developing ourselves and learning how to be the best human being as possible our full potential will never be reached. Why continue to live the life your living? Why settle? Live to your full potential and be free! Free of stress, finances, and negativity. Be happy and spread that happiness to others; you never know who needs it the most. Big changes start with small steps; so start with yourself and see how great you can become.

The inspiration of this blog came from this video. As important as it is to never judge a book by its cover it’s even more crucial to never judge a person by what you see on the outside. You can’t feel someone else’s heart so stop pretending too. Even if you think you know, you never know the full story of what is going on. This short video is guaranteed to change the way you think and the way you treat others going forward. Be there for everyone and focus your mind on your own personal growth. When you develop yourself you will completely see the world in a new light and others will see that new light in you.

Take care and God bless,

I had a novel on here, and my computer shut the window and I lost everything. SHESH! Ok Lets start over. lol
GREAT POST! I was thinking somewhat along these when I heard Obama wanted to go against Syria. I thought to myself, Our world would be a much happier, loving place if we learned to accept one another, love one another, help one another…instead of shooting each other, stabbing each other (literally and figuratively), hurting each other. Our nation alone needs a lot of work in this department, more so now-a-days. Everyone is so quick to nag and point out the negatives of everyone and everything. It’s quit irritating. I am one that DO NOT like to cloud my life with negativity. I love to be as peaceful / happy as possible (now behind the wheel…that’s a totally different story! lol) BUT I ‘try’!
It’s funny cause I was given a bracelet a month ago from a dear dear friend of mine, whom use to be my Bible Study teacher and have kept a very close relationship with; I (and my family) do consider her to be a friend. Anywho, she explains the bracelet to me and says, “It’s a website called, http://www.acomplaintfreeworld.org/, and you buy these packages of bracelets and booklets and you pass them out to students, co-workers, friends & family. The goal is to go 21 days without judging someone or complaining, at all. Every time you release your negative thoughts, you have to switch the bracelet onto the other wrist.” I laughed and told her, “you obviously have NEVER been behind the wheel with me.” She smirked and replied, “that’s the point. It makes you more aware of your negativity.” My best friend, whom was eating with us that day, asked her, “What day are you on?” She replied, “Day 1, Week 7.” We laughed, but I accepted the challenge and I am sad to say I gave up after 2 weeks. It is too hard to NOT think negatively. I never realized just how negative I was till I placed that purple rubber bracelet onto my wrist. But after reading this post, I will re-apply myself to this challenge and see if I can survive 21 days. My Aunt works with the San Antonio Alamo Colleges and she acquired the website so she could pass them onto her co-workers. I recommend y’all check it out as well!
God Bless & Much HAPPINESS! 🙂

It’s amazing to hear that this blog has encouraged you to start your 21 day challenge over. I haven’t heard of that but I want to participate so thank you for sharing the link.
I also agree that if this world was as quick to love as they are to hate it would be a completely different place!

Andrea Lopez I Love This! You’re so good at expressing your thoughts! Everything you said I agree with. It’s very tough not judging people but I do my very best not to. Its weird but I try and look at people and think what their life story is but the truth is that I will never really know and I try not to judge them for their actions or reactions. Their are people that can seem like the happiest person but can have a heart braking situation then there are people who aren’t so good with keeping their emotions in and let it come out in the worst way sometimes and they may not even realize it. Can’t I repost this? Lorren that is awesome I’ve never heard of a bracelet like that! That’s pretty cool!
