Our mind is like a parachute, it works best when it is open.
We often are very quick to make assumptions, or jump to conclusions. We easily form and hold fast to our opinions, without all the facts, or just because we have chosen to close our mind to any other possibility.
An open and understanding mind will not for the most part assume things. It doesn’t always jump to conclusions or hold fast to any opinion.
A person with an open mind knows there are always many points of view or ways to see things and that seeing each one is much more rewarding, entertaining and enlightening. This causes less stress and struggle with-in. It leads to a happier life.
So next time you make an assumption, think again, be open to all the possibilities or possible ways of viewing the situation and keep the mind open. You may be very surprised, you may even learn something new
