Allow people to change

We can become so focused on how we know a person to be, their good points and their faults that, after a while, that is all we see. 

The danger of this is that we miss the little, almost imperceptible ways in which a person is growing and changing all the time.  If we're not careful, we may even miss the fact that they are changing in the ways we wish they would. 

We experience life through our own unique lenses, and when these lenses become too focused on someone or something, we stop allowing them to be different than how we think they are. 

Look for and celebrate the many big and small ways in which those who surround you are changing & growing all the time.  Not only will it encourage them, to be noticed for who they truly are, you will experience the joy of seeing those you love becoming stronger more beautiful people.  And what could be better than that?
