I’ve been feeling really… international today. Or maybe I have just been thinking perspectively. I don’t know how else to put it.
You know, one of those days when you just stop and your mind goes to all the children that has been born today, and the people who have died. The ones that has proposed to their loved one, or been proposed to, and the ones that has gotten married today. Somewhere out there someone has gotten a promotion at work while another quit their job to try something completely different. I know that people are hiding, changing their names, being terrified of being found. Someone was adopted today by their forever-family and someone adopted their forever-child. Some people finished watching/reading their favorite TV-show/book(s) and currently doesn’t know what to do with their life. A few people won the multimillion-lottery today!
My point is, there are so many things going on in the world, and you and I, we are just these small puzzle-pieces in this big puzzle known as the world. While we may be having a really crappy day, it’s someone else’s best day of their life.
And there are so much we can do to other people! I watched this video a while ago, and it kind of changed my life. I want to be that kind of person who helps people. It doesn’t have to be about big things, I just want to make a difference.
You see, readers, this is what happens when I’m home being sick. When I finally get out, I realize that there’s more people in this world but me, my boyfriend Max, his dad and his dad’s partner, Max’s sister and my mom. I walk around smiling at people and have to resist the impulse of shouting “Come on! You’ll make it!” to bypassing runners. I am also probably shouting, not talking, to the cashier in the store because the cold has made me temporarily half-deaf and I can’t tell how loudly I’m making myself sound. I love these days though. They make me realize what I have, and what I want to do. So, I’m all good.
