Week 5 – Post 1

No doubt it’s me but reading the material on the law of compensation was less than a stellar experience. It’s old writing, it wanders and I think (gasp) I’m giving my opinion! Yikes! We just learned this so there you have it. First I am doing what we’re asked not to do, but (hooray!) I caught myself in the middle of it.

There is a dance, I am observing about myself, between an opinion and a judgment so as Davene suggests, let’s look it up!

o·pin·ion/əˈpinyən/Learn to pronouncenoun

  1. a view or judgment formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge.

judg·ment/ˈjəjmənt/Learn to pronouncenoun

  1. 1.the ability to make considered decisions or come to sensible conclusions.

Okay – I somehow have it in my mind when I’m judging myself, someone, or something else, I’m noting less-than-stellar things about them. Being judgy… and the definition (at least this one) says the ability to make considered decisions – judging something (or someone) on merit?

Either way, my goal is to simply be in the moment – smile or nod without jumping in with my thoughts or opinion and read that compensation essay another two times, and hold out that I will like it better as we go.

  1. Just the fact that you are catching yourself so quickly shows how much progress you have made in such a short time. Keep on going and thank you for the dedication to discovering the best version of you!
