Crossed Paths

What kind of footprints are you leaving behind on paths crossed on your journey. Is your step so soft that no hint of passing remains once you travel on? Is your tread so fierce that the damage left behind will take an ocean of tears to repair? Do you race like a lightning bolt or crawl snail slow? Have you ever paused long enough to help someone to grow.
The real quality of our journey is measured by the thoughtfullness of our footsteps, not in the clothes we wear, the homes inhabited, or the money we think we own. Things left behind are quickly claimed by others once we leave this journey behind. But footprints left upon the path of another soul belong to you for all eternity.
