GRATEFUL GIRL'S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Funny, isn't it, how we all deem ourselves authorities on justice? Consider how many times, over the course of a week, let's say, we determine something unfair. Whether it's an official court rendering we disagree with; a decision in the workplace we oppose; a judgement call by a loved one with which we are at distinct odds (YOU WANT TO PAINT THE KITCHEN WHAT COLOR?) or even something as simple as the clerk behind the counter announcing she'll wait on "whoever is next" and some dude steps in front of you even though you've been in line seven minutes longer than he. Hmpf.
Believe me, it's something we humans do a lot; judging fairness by our own self-focused standards. Take, for instance, the horrendous officiating occurring during the Cavs/Pelicans NBA game the other night. HELLO? Why were 98% of all the calls going against Cleveland, yo? NO FAIR! See what I did there?
The irony is: we don't ever consider things in the reverse, do we? What I mean to say is this: I am cerainly no perfect person. So...all things being fair; do I really deserve all the blessings in my life? No, no I don't. Sometimes we need to stop and think about how the balance of justice overwhelmingly tips in our favor every single day we live and breathe. As for the irritants we impulsively decry as unfair? What goes around comes around in the end, peeps. Just wait for it to all come out in the wash. As for me? I'm just thankful and humble for all the goodness in my life; I know it's probably not fair. #justice #fairness #blessed
