I am not writing this story to pat myself on the back but more as a realization of myself and the world around me. Honestly, it would have been easy for me to be a passerby like all the other people. My house was the next light down, my coffee was waiting for me, I didn't have my makeup on, and I was wearing house shoes. So you see, I had plenty of reasons to not help. But I chose to help. So this brings me to the point of the story I guess. There have been many times I have been a passerby.
So, I am going challenge to myself to not be the "passerby" both personally and outwardly.
CHALLENGE #1: I am going to support my daughter who wants to help the homeless. I admire her genuine concern for people and her ability to give so freely. She is definitely not a passerby and wants to create care packages for them.
CHALLENGE #2: Not to be a passerby in my own life. I am guilty of passing by opportunities just for the simple fact that I may fail. There are plenty of mantras out there like "Do or do not, there is no try" or "Failure is an event, not a person" and it seems easy enough to take the "bull by the horn" but when you are your own worse enemy it is that much harder.
So my word for today is PASSERBY. What am I doing or not doing to make this world, my life, or my family better?
