2015. Lets make a change. As a broke college student struggling to pay for her tuition, I still want to make a difference.Its cold in New York during the winter and working by Herald Square, there are so many people that need help. From keeping themselves warm, to just grabbing a bite, I want to make a difference. I still vividly remember this poor guy on the corner of West 30th Street and 7th Avenue. You looked so delighted reading the instructions off the emergency pack of water you were holding. I wish I had stopped and offered you my granola bar (the only food I had with me at that time) but I didn’t. I still regret it. Random acts of kindness; here it goes.
Allowing someone to throw your emotions around because having them throwing it around is better than not having them at all. Allowing someone to make you feel special and yet allowing the same someone to make you feel pushed aside. Why can’t we open up a little and let our vulnerability take us over a little bit? In this age and time, all we care about are how others see us; how we look; how society wants us to feel. Question is, why do we care so much about others and not care about our real emotions? Imagine: a world where emotions are let free from our minds. Happiness is not a state, yet it is life. Bright and sunny, grassy plains with colorful flowers. A speckle, a glimpse, a spark; music that calms your soul. Peace. Serenity.
-Fall Begins. And the truth is, it’s never going to happen.
So I have a friend that recently seperated with her boyfriend. Shes devastated. I understand, of course she would be after..I think it was like 4 years together? Now, my friend and I have been talking here and there (just to make sure she’s not doing anything stupid) and I hear her complain about her weight. Yes, not many people in this world I would say are satisfied with their weight. But what can you do about it? Change it. Because if you don’t, no one is going to do it for you. Thing is, if you don’t care for yourself, why should someone else care?
Start off small, try going to the gym with a gym buddy. Going with someone definitely keeps the motivation going. If gymming is not for you, try yoga. Yoga is a great way to release stress and to meditate. Something out there is for you. You just haven’t found it yet. And always remember in order to love someone, you have to learn to love yourself first.
So, I was thinking today what the world would be like if everyone was honest. How would we live in a world like that? If everyone was honest, then there would be no second-thoughts, ifs-and-what-ifs, maybe-this, or maybe-that. Everything would be just a statement and the answer will be direct. Wouldn’t it?
