What If and If Only…


What is on and what is off.
What I knew and what’s the clue.
I know and I don’t know.
What’s going on, I don’t know.
Life. What is life but a swift blow in the wind of time and then? Then it’s all gone.
We’re born, we live and we die.
We disappear from the world, it’s like we never existed.
So quickly we go, so quickly we’re forgotten.

I sit quietly in the park, watching people go by, they’re in my life from I first see them until they are out of my sight.
For a few seconds our paths meet and we are together for a few moments and then we’re separated. Within a few seconds we live a part of our lives together, in the park.
Our lives on earth is equally short and swift.
Why are we alive? Why do we do the things we do? Why? I don’t know – I have no clue.
Silently we live our lives and silently we go.
I only know what I do, but I hardly know why I do the things I do.
I’m a simple human with simple needs. The need for peace, but most importantly; the need for peace of mind. That I can only fully find in complete solitude. I am not dependent on other humans to find peace of mind, it’s rather opposite.
But for what my purpose in life is, I am completely clueless.
There’s only three things I know with certainty in my life; I was born, I am going to die and if I knew then what I know now, my life would have been very different. These are my certainties. But of course, everything can change.
Change is essential in life – without change there’s no life. But, not all changes is good. We must take heed to not change in the wrong direction or everything will crumble into dust.
“I had it all, I lost it all”, heard that before? Yes, me too.
Take care so you don’t change too much in too less time and certainly not in the wrong direction. If you want to change something in your life, make sure that it is you who want the change and that it’s your choice to change. Change only for yourself or in life, don’t ever change because someone wants you to change. You are the only one in your life who’s in control of your life and you are the one who decide in which direction to go. That’s just how it is.
Get rid of anyone who doesn’t accept you for who you are, you don’t need those people in your life. Trust me, you really don’t.

So you actually read all of it? I am impressed. Really, I am. That means I’ve written something that caught your attention and for that I am happy.
Thank you for your time and patience. I deeply appreciate it!

About that…

It’s funny how we rush from place to place. From home to work. From work to home. Everything in between becomes a blur.
I am commuting back and forth, from home to work. And back again.
People generally don’t smile. I started to look strangers into their eyes and smile. Not a huge smile but a small one that said “Have a nice day”. Some don’t smile at all, but most smile back! I don’t smile like this every day, but most days I do.
I find it very rewarding but that’s not why I do it. I do it because maybe other humans might feel better that day and thus spreading the joy.
I also tell positive things to my friends. Giving them positive feedback, but only if it is true.
Imagine if more people do this. Imagine what would happen.

Love isn’t only about having sex, it is also about taking care of each other. It is about listening. It is about being there. It is about telling the truth no matter how hard it might be.
Love is about smiling. It is about a gentle touch. It is about warmth on a cold winter day.
Love is about looking past that hard shell most people is carrying around. It is about trust and much more.

Have a wonderful day and remember that the strangers you see everyday, is looking for the same things in life as you do.
