Is it worth it?

Do you ever happen onto someone’s “day” and wonder why they take things so seriously. Or maybe you find yourself exploding over something that doesn’t really matter.

I rounded the corner of the building and there was the scene.

A little boy with mixed emotions in his eyes. A breadstick on the ground and a mother with set jaw and anger on her face. After walking past I heard her say firmly,” I am very angry.” Well duh, you didnt need to say it luv! 🙂

He knew it when he accidentally held the plastic sleeve the wrong way and the bread dropped onto the ground. My heart went out to the poor kid as it was obvious it had been a mistake and couldn’t she have said,” What a pity that dropped,  Never mind, I know it was a mistake.”

 What happened before the event, I don’t know. I am sure the Mum may have had a challenging morning and it might have been the last straw. Is it in perspective for a 4 year old kid though? They just see a bread-stick dropping on the ground and think, “That is worth getting very angry about!?”

Do you see how we can transfer importance on to others through our own frustrations.

I love these life lessons because I too have been there but I was probably taking my ‘venting’ out on an adult.

Write in the comment section and tell me a story of frustrations in your day that you observed or mishandled.

Cheers Tim James
