Be The Change You Want To See In The World!
How come we can write the best stories and make beautiful movies that make people dream and wish to have similar lives, we make them escape reality and live in a world of dreams BUT we can’t just live the same way?
Why we can’t be “this guy from the movie that is loyal and loving”, why we can’t be “this devoted woman” and ‘this kind and honest person”? Why we can’t create beauty for real and make this world a better place instead of this pile of trash we live in nowadays?
I’m mentioning the good side of movies and stories because I’m sure nobody has a dream to be raped or to be poor or to be eaten by a shark right?
But we always say the sentences “Their life is like a movie” or “life is not a movie” but you are forgetting that people that are writing these stories are humans like you!
They are from earth not from another planet, they also have their fears and problems, and many times they have nothing from the stories they write but they can write them, therefore, they do exist, they can exist, they should exist! Moreover, they should exist more and more because we have too much misery and darkness already!
Be the change you want to see in this world, just start from yourself and stop waiting for others to do it for you!
Be this good friend, this loving husband, that loyal wife, that tender mother, be this person that decided to follow their passion and defy the world just to be happy!
Be the dreamer, be the successful, the hard worker, the ambitious, the cheerful, the loving, the caring, the HAPPY!
Just decide to be whatever you want to be and let it be!
You can’t keep complaining and nagging about the lack of light and the lack of love and care and happiness while you live in the darkness!
Light a candle instead of cursing the darkness, be the shining star in someone’s life instead of hiding behind the clouds of doubt, envy, hate and fear.
We are all waiting for each other’s and we’ll remain waiting, nothing will change, on the contrary, it’s becoming worse and worse every day!
More pain, more hate, more cheating, more abandoning, more careless attitude, more ignoring each other’s and more materialism, envy and greediness!
It’s weird that after the billions that have died and buried, people didn’t understand yet that we take nothing with us! Except the good memories and impacts we leave in people’s hearts and life! This is the only thing we take with us, I checked many tombs and believe me, we leave empty-handed and also naked! We will take nothing at all!
As humans, it’s the time we spend here, each moment we live happy is our only treasure and each moment we make someone else happy is our only treasure after we leave this world and while we’re here it’s surely a candle in this dark and cruel world because changing someone’s life for the best and making their life better is actually a brighten star, a shining light in a world full of rudeness and cruelty.
Just be this change, be this person you wish to have, be this person you dream to have, give the smile you wish to receive, give the attitude you wish to see, and maybe someday someone will do the same for you and you will find out that your dreams were so close to you, because they were always your reflection and your mirror, this reflection that you kept it dimmed for many many years and you wasted your time searching so far away for something that was always “within”.
Thank you for reading, your opinions and thoughts are always welcome 😊
