    I like to think that I'm nonjudgmental.

    ..but every now & then I find myself judging others. I don't like being judged myself, so I back up & just let people be who they are. It's not for me to say that their journey here is good or bad, right or wrong, moral or immoral....we all have our own journeys to go on. We...

    Different Paths

    I may not agree with your choices.  I may not understand them, and the unknown is always scary.  But I will listen, and suspend my judgement.  I will hear what you say, and what you do not say.  Your road may be very different from mine, and that's okay. ...

    Every Individual Walk

    Everybody has their own walk and if we take the time to listen to anothers story we learn something new about ourselves and our own walk. The key I believe is to hear and appreciate all walks of life and admire any talent great or small. warm regards to all Nadie.
