I did. I HATED them.
The way they exposed my hairy feet…
The way people would wear them with jeans…
Even the annoying sound they made when you walked!
Needless to say I had A LOT of judgment around flip flops and people who wore them.
When I would wear them I felt self-conscious, naked even. I had made up my mind that flip flops were stupid and didn’t have much use in my life.
This all changed about 9 months ago when I moved a block from the beach. Not only did I start to wear my flip flops daily (before this I had only worn them less than 15 times in the 7 years I lived in San Diego), but I actually bought 2 new pair of them! I found myself wearing them more and more, and not to the beach, but EVERYWHERE. Once I got over the judgement of how they looked and how they sounded, I began to realize that they. were. awesome.
They coddled my feet, let them breathe, and were so easy to flick on and off at a moments notice!
The point is this: We all judge things from time to time, and you never know what you’re missing out on until you give it a fair, unbiased shot!
So where are YOU judging things in your life?
How can your life be even better by letting go of those judgements and trying new experiences?
When will you let go of the need to be right?
And what else is possible?!
