Life as I know it.
Everything's changed. For the better. I feel much better, so refreshed. I've cut the one big bad thing out of my life and never again am I going to let it get me down. Sounds good in theory, yes. Here's hoping I can keep it up in practice.
So much has happened. So many glorious moments, fragmets of time that I will remeber for the rest of my life.. "We shined back then. We were amazing"...
My classes have defnitely been broadening my views of the world and I've been thinking a lot lately about decay. Such a horrible word isn't it? Yet we stumble across it everyday. We see decay in society, people, ourselves. And let's be honest here, most of the time we do nothing about it. But it really is time for a change. Everytime I write, I keep in mind the simple instruction to 'tell the world something important' and today I saying that I've had enough of this decay. As a very firm believer in both Social Justice and the Social Action behind it, I'd really love to eventually open my own charity one day. One that focuses on both local and global concerns. For now, I'm working the small stuff. Giving my time where I can, learning as much as I can, and even just simple things such as smiling as much as possible and asking random strangers how their day is going. I would encourage every person to do the same, it takes one person to make a difference, but a whole army to start a revolution. Start smiling everyday, ask a person that looks sad if they are okay, give a dollar to that homeless person on the corner. Really all I'm saying is just be kind. For there is nothing better you could do in this world.
