That Felt Weird

Gotta short one today
 
Bout to hit the road and who knows
 
When I’ll be sitting down again to
 
Give you some of that JW gold.
 
 
Anyhoo, I have to say that I was a little
 
Overwhelmed with this visit down south.
 
Of course, because of family, but also 
 
Because of the numerously slight differences
 
Between the north and the south.
 
 
I mean besides the funny accents down here
 
You also find that you can buy beer in gas stations
 
Instead of at a beer distributor 
 
And one that had me completely surprised, was
 
How you pay for stuff here. 
 
 
I was buying a few things from the store 
 
You know, some water, chapstick and a few other
 
Travel things that I wanted and I put my money
 
On the counter. 
 
 
The cashier, just about refused to serve me
 
She said that was rude…
 
 
I said um….Is it customary to walk out without
 
Paying for the items normally? She smiled and
 
Said that she would prefer it in her hand…
 
Sometimes, we get so stuck in the way we
Do certain things that any other way just seems
Like a waste of time, or unworkable, but
I would have you consider that
Just like when I wanted to put the money on
The counter as opposed to in that lady’s hand
 
Depending on where you are in life
 
Certain things may or may not serve you (anymore). 
 
 
So no continuation today. This one ends here
 
With this thought: 
 
It doesn’t matter how much success you’ve had
 
What matters is not the past, but the present. 
 
Is what you are doing now serving you or is it
 
Just something that you do, because you’ve always
 
Done it that way?

P.S. It’s true, you may have done something
 
One way before, but if it is not serving you,
 
What’s the point of continuing to do it?
 
I mean we have cell phones instead of pagers
 
For a reason right?
 
But it’s important to honestly
 
Consider what you are doing currently in your life
 
And if it truly is getting you the best results. 
 
 
If not, I would like you to consider my private
 
Facebook group Project SELFFY. We’re helping
 
People new ways to solve old problems everyday.
 
See you there. Talk soon…
