What is Your Sign?

What matters most is how you see yourself. -Unknown Author

I want to share a story that a friend of mine shared with me recently. 11275856_sShe was at the ice cream parlor eating an ice cream cone. As she sat there, a man not smelling so pleasant walked by and she looked up. He was wearing a sign on his chest that stated he was homeless.  She said the “homeless” sign really drew her attention.  She said the man sat down a little ways from her. She started looking in her purse and in her car for some money but couldn’t find any spare change.  She said as she was looking, something inside her said “don’t give that man any money, that man made a choice”

What I took away from that story was that we all make choices each and every moment of our lives.  We all walk around with some type of invisible sign on our chest. 18819733_s Some of our signs may say victim, lonely or helpless and we don’t even realize it.  It’s not how the world sees you, but how you see yourself that matters.  For the longest time I wore an “unworthy” sign on my chest.  I got tired of wearing that sign.  Now my signs read successful, powerful, wise and worthy.  My question for you is: What is your sign?
