Little Things Change The Way We Think

Updated on March 7, 2010

I Am Learning From You

How one person can change are lives

An average day nothing exceptional in any way

Off the gym getting an early work out in

I was finishing up on a machine and someone was waiting alongside

I stopped to wipe it clean for him to use after me

I told him almost done since he seemed impatient and I did not want to waste his time

He replied " Ater all these years I haven't been in a hurry I am not going to start now "

Thinking how nice it would be if more people thought like that

My day is forever changed by a simple man who walked away

There are so many things to do each day

When those things are done there will be another list to follow

If we rush to get things done does it really help us in any way?

Does it really mattter?

What if we took time to slow down and do it right

Those things not done will be done next time or later if need be

How much better would I feel ?

Knowing I enjoyed what I could and pushed myself to my limits

Respectfullly enjoying life and it's ongoing activities

To understand how each little thing influences my perspective on life

I can now sit back and relax

Try as I have in the past

When my job is done I think differently now

I am happier than before knowing I completed one more thing

Those things that I started and aren't finished yet

Will be there waiting for me when I am ready

Then I will chose what things I want to finish and complete

My thanks go to a stranger I will never meet

      This made me think of when I'm driving down the road and a car flies by me, weaving in and out of cars impatiently, trying to get ahead, only to be one car in front of me at the stoplight. Know what I mean? There really is no point to be in such a hurry all the time... when you could just be enjoying life. Voting up :)

      Dream on - I used to have some pretty roses but they all died when we got flooded. All I have now are memories of them in pictures. Check out my rose hub.
