Yesterday I had one of those days. No, I’m not talking about that time of the month. I’m talking about that moment when you see something that sadness you deeply and at the same time makes you realize how lucky you really are.
A kid approached me on the street, he was selling flowers and postcards…I had thousands of clothes and shoes that I never even wore when I was little and some kids are forced to go out in the street and beg or work…
This is not a post where I tell you to make a donation to some named organization, also I realize that I have a personal style blog and that here we laugh and don’t take things too seriously all the time (although when I say that I mostly refer to fashion and appearances).
What I’m trying to say is please be present in your life and don’t waste your time being constantly focused on the things you don’t have, it leaves no time to be grateful for the things you already do.
And from now and then don’t forget to give back, even if by giving back you understand smiling to the nice, old lady who sells you coffee every morning, giving your seat to someone else in the subway or calling your high school teacher just to say “hello, I didn’t forget you and I wanna thank you for teaching me some important lessons in life!”
You owe it to yourself…
I for one, I bought all that kid’s flowers. I didn’t changed much but I made him smile. After all, the little things are the ones who make the biggest difference. And you know what? They don’t cost anything and work as an instant smile for you too 😉
