Small Stuff

There were periods in my life when I spent time getting upset over things that didn’t matter.  Eventually getting upset over little things became my normal.  Truth be told, the reason I spent so much time making mountains out of mole hills was because I was unhappy with myself.   Count your blessings, love who you are and don’t sweat the small stuff!

“In the past, I tried to hide from myself in plain sight by blending in with the crowd.  After hiding so long, I realize there are 1000’s of us trying to hide in plain sight.”      Alton Carter       IMG_3595.JPG

Should I feel guilty as I sit in a restaurant and eat

As a homeless man walks by with no shoes on his feet

He looks at me and my plate as I sit at the table

He wants to join me but financially he’s not able

I look down at my plate until he is out of sight

Wondering where he will go and will he eat tonight

What could I do for the man with bare feet

I could have asked him to join me at my table to eat
