This morning on the way to work I was listening to a bluegrass radio station and a song came on called “Some Kind of War” which really got me thinking about things. The chorus of the song goes like this:
Its hard to know what someones going through unless your standing right there in their shoes. It’s not always on CNN or on some distant shore. Life itself can be a battlefield and we’re all fighting some kind of war.
In our everyday life we come across so many different people and we really never know what is going on in their lives. We can’t control their lives heck, sometimes we can’t control our own either. What we can control is how we deal with people and situations.
I guess my point is this. Greet people with a smile, a little compassion, show respect, and who knows how you might affect their lives. And if you’re in a situation that seems out of control take some time and look at the leaves in the trees and all that this world has to offer that is good. Take some time to yourself, relax, and listen to a little bluegrass.
