Inspire Me

Reality. Be the best person you know you can be. I look at people as I do vegetation in Kroger. When purchasing veggies, presentation and appearance attract my attention.  If it’s a featured item (on sale) and looks good, I buy it. If I’m seeking an out of season veggie, chances are it won’t catch my eye because it’s out of season. But, on the other hand if I need it, I pick through all of them until I find the best choice. When I get my veggies home and store them in their respective places, I organize meals around my items that will have short shelf life. However, sometimes before I use them, I end up throwing it in my compost bin.

Everything in life goes through the process of selection and elimination. When I meet people, after a few short minutes, I know whether that relationship will have a long or short shelf life. But, I believe in giving everyone a fair shake. I don’t pre-judge anybody just because someone else finds fault in them. I work hard at giving every individual opportunity to establish a worthy friendship. Coming from bible principles, treat others the way you want to be treated.  It’s not within me to judge whether a book is good without reading it. It’s about how a person treats me. If I have met 100 people, 90% or less doesn’t have a clue about what loyalty is.

Loyalty is being real with yourself. Demonstrating support or allegiance to others. Everyday, I work hard to get loyalty right. I believe wholeheartedly, my Heavenly Father knows my thoughts before I do. He personally designed everyone’s DNA. No two people have the same fingerprints. He gave me life. He watches over me. With that being said, in return, I give everybody a fair shake by not pre-judging. I could care less what happened between that person and someone else. It has nothing to do with me. When I say I love you, I mean it. I will do everything within reason I can for you BUT, that compost bin is there for a reason as well as not receiving everlasting life.  A veggie can bring strong presentation but it will diminish if it’s not eaten immediately or properly stored. Don’t judge a book by its cover. READ IT. Only then can you make a decision to use what you learn or compost. You will be either an Ocean or a Puddle. That’s what you need to decide. JUDGE NOT.
