For such a crazy life, I have a pretty set routine. I wake up, put my workout clothes on, grab my keys and iPod, and run until I can barely breathe…. sometimes 2 miles, sometimes 5; but I always end up at the same place. I get coffee and a banana from The Coffee Bean (which I’ve started referring to as the one-two PUNCH!…. for the obvious, colon-related reasons….) and then play the iPod game (if you don’t know, you’re missing out!) and leisurely walk home. I think about life and what I have to do and where I want to go and I think fondly of You and all the people I love. I have the most important Conversations on those walks. I get home, (I think normal people insert a shower here…. I’m good for it every 3 days or so hahaha) change, and either read or write. Most days then I head to the tattoo shop.
Now, this routine and these walks have led me to this idea, and it revolves around….. bananas. Yep.
A banana at The Coffee Bean costs $.95; at Trader Joe’s, only .$19. The banana’s are no different, but somehow their worth was calculated differently. As humans, our worth is constantly judged by the world…. what can we contribute, and how much that amount should be pursued/attained. So my question is… who are you surrounding yourself with? What are you worth to the ones you choose to love? I believe there’s only one place you’ll find real worth, but that’s a whole other topic. That banana, if you will, is priceless 😉
