When I was a child,
my father used to tell me:
"anytime you see something silver, pick it up - don't step over it. It's good luck"
For the next decade, I listened -
and anytime I seen a silver coin of any kind,
i'd grab it and take it with me.
Still to this day – I can spot silver pretty much anywhere I go without even trying
but since i've been an adult, I've stopped picking it up.
Through this practice, in parallel with other life experiences
I realized the treasure didn't lie in the coins
but in the ability to spot what was perceived to be important
We hold the power to assign value and expound on that value
as long as you decide –
every step you take is leading you,
every brick you step over is gold.
