Forgetting our opinions
I am sitting in a coffee shop and there is an older lady sitting at a table next to me talking to what I am guessing is her mother. One or both of them have a hard time hearing so they talk fairly loud... so I am overhearing more than I probably want. I am just about to jam out to some tunes, but before I do, I heard something very funny that turned profound. The older lady, (I'm guessing mother) said, "I forgot my opinion about that..." I laughed to myself at first and then felt bad for her. But as I sit her thinking, maybe that is a really good idea! What if we just forgot our opinions and reconstructed them over and over again! We stick to what we think so much, we miss a lot! I'm going to work on forgetting my opinion!
