The Keys?

As the morning sky filled with sun for the first time in a very long time
I wondered if one of the simple keys to happiness 
Is not allowing the worry and weariness of living
To completely overwhelm the wonder of life...

Stepping back, resisting the (human) inclination to 
draw "conclusions" or 'pass judgement' 
about someones'
or choices
is a
a monumental act of human kindness

It's not about them deserving it (or not)
It's not about you being right (or wrong)
 What it is, actually. is a gift you give 
to that person (family, friend, coworker, stranger)
It's a gift you give to the world at large
(one less negative bit of karma slinking around)

Maybe the bewildering/annoying/obnoxious people
 have a reason for
(fill in the blank with whatever they are doing that's annoying)
(or maybe they ARE just  total ass*oles) lol

Either way
May as well keep your eyes on your own paper 

Cause I'm pretty sure you're not gonna change the A*holes
 And if someone IS in the midst of a soul crushing crisis
Odds are there's little you can do
to alter how they're coping with whatever they may be facing

It's for sure not easy
I'll admit right here, right now that some days I do better than others lol
But I keep reminding myself of something I really do think is true:
 Any time you choose to take the higher road...
  it's a little bit of a gift you give yourself too

'just sayin......
