For the last few weeks I’ve noticed, on occasion, a guy frowning and scowling at me as I’m enjoying my yoyo sessions. It appeared from his body language that this unhappy fellow disapproved of such a frivolous activity. Over the last few days I’ve noticed him more frequently, always scowling. Oh well, ignore it and continue on.
Today I’m throwing and I hear a voice, “Can anyone learn to do that?” “Absolutely!”
I surely had misread his body language. It just goes to show how our perceptions can cause us to miss opportunities to meet others and share what we love to do.
He has a yoyo now!
I guess the lesson, for me, is to be approachable and slower to judge. I’m glad I was approachable because I wouldn’t have learned that I had misjudged him.
