Wednesday's Words of Wisdom (It's For the Birds!)

My new year's resolution (I know it's August) always contains this same line every
year - that I will not judge others - it's SO much easier said than done - I am not even
remotely mean-spirited and yet at times I find myself judging based on appearances or
personalities......I am trying to be open and welcoming to diversity and see each person
as a unique creation not as someone recently released from the cookie cutter!

When people are are quick to judge others I often think it's like a kind of "deflection"
away from self while others are so quick to harshly judge themselves. 
I wrote a post last year about "smooshie vision" - it's still something I totally subscribe
to and hope you will have a re-read and apply it to your creations!

I found these quotes for you today and this oh so funny video as a great reminder
of what happens when we judge or mock others......

If you haven't seen this little clip - please watch it and
have a laugh.....

And here are Wednesday's Words......enjoy!

"It took me a long time not to judge myself through someone else's eyes"
~Sally Field~

"Doubt yourself and you doubt everything you see.  Judge yourself and you
see judges everywhere.  But if you can listen to the sound of your own voice,
you can rise above doubt and judgment and you can see forever"
~Nancy Lopez~

And oh, btw - I will have some thrifty/crafty posts coming up!
I've been busy trying to organize a Vintage/Handmade Fair!

I can relate to Sally Fields quote. For years I judged myself through the eyes of others! Good luck with the vintage fair!
