My opinion may stink as well

Remember not to believe everything that you think – or what others think.  Just listen and learn. – don Miguel Ruiz

Much earlier in my life I learned not to believe what others think, but it never occurred to me that what I thought was not always to be believed either.  First I realized that I could be bombarded enough with what others thought that they became my thoughts.  Now I am practicing much more diligently the art of listening to myself the same as I listen to others.  Listen respectfully, dissect it if necessary, let it steep, and if it isn’t the truth, throw it out with the bath water where it should go.

This is what I have been working on today.  It’s gonna take a while.
