As I walked to the grocery store, I suddenly realized a bad habit of mine . . .
I walk with my head down watching every step I take.
I discovered as I did this that my entire trip to the market was filled with every piece of trash, crack in the sidewalk, and discarded rotting food product, leaving me a bit frustrated at peoples’ carelessness, agitated at having to walk around pot holes, and grossed out by the unpleasant sight of week old litter.
So on the trip back to my house I decided to lift my head, and see the world above the dirty ground as I walked home.
As I did I started noticing what a nice day it was, I would have random people look and smile at me, I saw interesting things in windows and soon found my attitude and composure was no longer one of disgust and agitation, but of happiness and joy for a nice walk.
My peripheral vision warned me whenever there was a bigger crack in the sidewalk or food item to avoid, but for the most part my vision was filled with interesting, fun, beautiful things contrasting my previous walk filled with each imperfection.
Just a tilting of my head . . . a change in the angle angle of my eyes changed my whole demeanor.
There’s a misconception that girls are only the ones who need to be told they’re pretty, and have doting positive remarks said about them.
While girls may be more vocal and honest about their need, I believe with all my heart that boys and men need them just as much.
I find my self constantly asking and seeking for those close to me to express my worth to them. I need to hear that I am strong and good, that I have hero qualities.
That I am a man of God and even that I am handsome!
