    I find it hardest to be judicial, as it is defined in this reflection, and easiest to be judgemental, when passions are involved.  Passsions referring to those overwhelming emotions experienced when we are debating a deeply felt issue, a topic of some controversy and even in day to day communications with family, friends and peers. 

    Someone very wise once told me, and I am constantly reminded of this, "kindness before expression."  The beauty of this philosophy lays in its simplicity yet; however, I have found this to be one of the most difficult things to activly 'live.'  It takes constant effort and is very rewarding when achieved.

     

    Thank you for sharing CF!

    Peace!
