It seems like decades since I last wrote anything sensible on here, pardon me for that, you guys (If there is anyone who is reading this, lol) are such good people.
There are so many simple lessons in life that we ignore, those tiny things that happen around that if you don’t look hard enough, you will miss them happening. Have you ever seen a baby smile? Those precious moments filled with innocent baby sounds, sparkling eyes and lots of giggles are always so wonderful to behold.
I have seen a child hand their half-eaten lollipop to a blind beggar on a street and that moment right there has been stuck in my head, it replays time and time again.
It sprouts a lot of emotions out of me, not because I am a very emotional person but because seeing a lil boy hand something he actually cried for in the supermarket to a person on the street, who he doesn’t even know is to me a timeless moment that can teach all of us about the little things in life.
When you wake up in the morning after a long night of rest or nightmares(whatever you have) do you ever sit down and ask yourself why you were even able to wake up in the first place? When you read the news and see that a family was attacked by robbers and murdered in cold blood, do you silently send God a “thank you?”
When you have so many problems around you and you feel no one is on your side making it look like the whole world is conniving against you? Do you try to look around and notice that there are others who are worse off than you are, but instead of whining and giving up they are silently holding unto an unknown hope that it will get better soon?
I am not trying to make anyone sad or gloomy, I am just pointing out that sometimes we overlook the very smaller things that if we looked at, would make the world and its problems fade away.
When I wake up in the morning, I always say Thank you to God for waking me up, giving me the air that I breathe, my job, my family and my friends. It always makes me realize how lucky and blessed I am because I know there is someone out there that is just grateful that they lived to see another day. Some that doesn’t have that much to be grateful for but they still are. They live their life so happily like they have never seen a trouble in the world.
I am learning to love like I have never been hurt before, working and playing as if tomorrow is not hours away, smiling at the darkness because the light is always around the corner, crying through my pain because holding it in can be such a bother, giving with all my heart because God has blessed me abundantly and loving like it’s a new interesting anime that I have been looking forward to all day.
After here, put that phone down, go laugh and talk with your family, go for for a walk, splurge on yourself. Buy that really cute shoe you have been eyeing but afraid to spend, call that person and tell them how much you love them. Live now, not tomorrow!
