The last 3 months, however, have introduced new challenges for everyone around the world as we grapple with a reality that looks very different than it did at the beginning of 2020. We have all been challenged in many ways: experiencing a loss of connection with family and friends. To some, especially people living in urban centres and areas without easy access to green space, it may feel like losing touch with the outside world completely. Sometimes we’re not aware how important that connection is until it’s gone.
Even though my sense of adventure disappeared for a while, Northern Ontario did not.
A couple of weeks ago I went on my Northern Ont. tour.
The world was still very upside down. I made it to Barrie & Sudbury only. Along the highways nothing was open – which made my trip feeling isolated and uncomfortable . That is why I am letting you know I am ready and leaving again . Tues. June 16th…..Things are opening up again. Thank goodness I will be able to stop and use a washroom instead of using the bush.😄
Looking forward to Barrie…Sudbury…Sault Ste Marie…and ?????
Ihave always prided myself that I try not to judge a book by its cover, or, in other words – not to judge a person by the way they look – the color of their skin – or their ethnicity. Although I know I have failed at times, I put my best foot forward and put my vow to work and love all people equally.
My point – take time to get to know people – to learn about them – to listen to them. We can’t keep assuming we know who they are or what they are about merely by what they wear or the color of their skin – or their ethnicity. We are all more than that and it is more important to learn what is on the inside than what is on the outside. In the times we live in now, we don’t take time to get to know the person – we judge them by the way they look – of the country of origin where they came – or the fact that the color of their skin does not match the color of mine. We are more than that.
In my business I engage with all races. Actually a very large percentage of my clients are not WHITE!! I am often asked if I will see Indians, Black men??? I look beyond your skin color – but I’ll judge you on what really matters, namely, “the content of your character.”
A quote I read today and fell in love with –“Laundry is the only thing that should be separated by color”
And finally, remember that judging a person does not define who they are, it defines who you are.
