Little Things Change The Way We Think
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
