Week 5- Complete Failure

This weeks exercise is to be the Non Judgmental Observer in all situations, offer no opinions of any kind, reserve all judgmental thoughts on anyone or anything unless you have been specifically asked by someone else and ONLY if you are an expert on the subject.

Even after mentally focusing on this concept and believing I had control of this,”Danger Will Robinson, Danger”, being honest with myself, I would have to classify my first several days at this exercise as a complete failure. Although I have had some brief and I mean brief success, I could only come to one conclusion, I have got to be the most opinionated $%$#%^^  in the world. I am not talking about derogatory nor inflammatory statements or even thoughts necessarily, although there have been a few but geeeeez I got a lot of work to do. I realize that last statement was in fact an opinion that no one asked for,  but it had to be said.

Success to all, Mac

    Really difficult! Most of them thoughts, but I found myself expressing my not so positive thoughts about my past, as of yesterday, landlord. A definite challenge… so many judgements that just erupt in my head….

    You are definitely not alone. I didn’t realize I what to look for. I do not interact with anyone but my husband and son. And I don’t talk to them, but listen. This was difficult as opinion is not usually given in my life. I look forward to sharing the journey with you.
