And yet I picked it up. I always do. I put pennies in my change container in my car or the change jar in the kitchen. It’s a habit that I never really thought about. But today for some reason, I stopped and really looked at that beaten up piece of copper. What does picking up that penny really say about me? And here’s what came to mind. I don’t pick them up because they will make me rich. I don’t pick them up because I am totally frugal and can’t waste anything. I believe I pick them up because I know that small parts put together make a worthwhile whole. Because I understand that to have success many pieces of a puzzle have to be put together over a period of time. Because I know that taking joy in the small moments of life is better than banking on having huge exciting events. Appreciate the penny and a dollar may come. Appreciate the daily journey of your life and your destination will be reached.
So I will continue to pick up any pennies that I see. Just as I will wake up every day and be appreciative of what it has to offer. Who knows what the pennies in life will add up to? Everyone sees small things in different ways.
