Hand Displaying Peace Sign

My happiness grows in direct proportion to my acceptance, and in inverse proportion to my expectations. ~Michael J. Fox

They say sometimes you should shrink so that the world can notice you, but if I am small and already not being noticed why should I shrink?

I wake up every day to the same routine. Sometimes I say a prayer, but I always take a shower, drink some water take my stuff, and for work I leave. What if one day, just one day I decided to change up that routine? Would it matter? Would it carry enough weight to create shrinkage so that the world would notice me? To shrink would mean to reduce!!

What am I thinking? How can I shrink on what I don’t have? But the question that really lurks inside is: Why do I want the world to notice me? I guess it’s the feeling of wanting to be accepted, because I feel different. The fact that I want to be understood, because clearly the persons I associate myself with just don’t understand. I stand here trying to think of ways so that the world would notice me. Now as I face the image in the mirror, I notice “The World Is Me”.

About Caroll Atkins

Loving Designing Living!! All forms of design intrigue me. As a graphic designer, I design for my livelihood (C.A.SlyDesigns) but as a writer, I do it for my living! At this time in my life, I MUST write. LoveDesignLife, is my joy and my gift to you. If my articles resonate with you, I pray they will also help you in life much as living them and writing about them has helped me. Today, it is no longer about thinking outside of the box. It’s bigger!! It is all about “Transcending the sphere!” coined by yours truly. I work hard to accomplish my goals. However, if I ever fall short I don’t worry I just eat cake cause tomorrow is another day!!
