Laying here motivating myself to get up and go outside and pick up trash. I met a man on the bus stop and he spoke about many things that touched my heart. It was like getting an unexpected sermon.
One of the things he said was that someone had told him to go and pick up trash. But the key was to not pick up more than he was thankful to do. If at any point he began to complain he was supposed to stop.
That stuck with me.
There’s a lot of things I will follow through with for the sake of doing them. But I tend to have something to say about everything. So today I am going to go pick up trash and see how thankful I can be at being a helper to the environment.
I don’t know where my life is headed.
Destiny is awaiting and I have no definitive answer for it. My life is a bit of a mess. My goals have disappeared. My mindset is on autopilot. My relationships are strained and my backpack is always ready to take run on the wild side of life. But my heart is heavy and my running shoes are comfortably easy to fit. And the only thing that I can think to do is what I said I would do earlier this week.
Pick up trash.
So here’s to keeping a promise to myself. And hopefully I’ll get focused and have many more to keep.
Wishing you a happy Saturday 🌞
