I am at work and cleaning the cup that held my morning “green juice.” I splashed it on me at the sink.
Now most of my attention is on how messy I look and when can I leave and go buy another shirt and what will others think of the stain. Pirates obviously leave green slime behind. Tasty and nutritious, but messy.
The practice now comes from working to shift my point-of-view. How would I feel if I saw this on another person? Would I care? Absolutely not. Who said, “You wouldn’t worry so much about what others think of you if you realized how seldom they do.”???
