life in the Special Olympics. Yet, here I am judging this poor man, without stopping and thinking about who he really was.
How many of us do this on a daily bases? We sit and see something, without truly understanding what we are looking at, or getting to know people. So many of us have interesting stories, but how many take the time to really know them? It is so easy to put on a happy face, but those who smile the most sometimes are the people who are hurting the most. This is for adults and children. As a society of intelligent people, we still act like cave man and women in the way to look at things. Most of the time we are in such a rush that we don’t stop and look at what is really happening right in front of us.
I just finished a short story for the Valentine Days special put on with other authors, and while writing that my characters did that exact thing. They jumped to conclusions without getting all the information. It is allowed in fictional world, but I think it is best to wake up in the real world. We all put our pants on one leg (sometimes both legs) at a time.
With that said, I set a small challenge to you all. Try and talk to someone. Ask them how their day was, ask them if you can help with anything. Get to know someone on a more personal level and try and understand them better. We will always be better for it. I am an open book, all you have to do it ask. With that, I leave my manic Monday thoughts with you all…
