Trash in Your Life

I run this stretch of road next to the highway 2-3 days per week. There are all these little pieces of trash that have been there for 1-2 years. The disgusting towel, the sock, the piece of packaging, the broken beer bottle, all make up a part of this assortment of oddities that litter the side of the road. In many ways, I think we all have these little pieces of trash in our lives. The things that are small, but that over time just become part of the scenery. We get used to them. They make the place feel like home to us. But they're still disgusting and make the roadside look like a dump. Oftentimes, in our lives there are sins that are this very thing. Maybe they're small, maybe they've just become part of our daily lives, but they still need to be cleaned up.

Take a look at your life. What needs to be cleaned up and tossed into a garbage bag? And don't worry. There will always be pieces of trash. Just keep that garbage bag open, and keep up the good work. ^_^

And, I'm going to go get a garbage bag on my next run and start cleaning up the road I run on..
